Big Finish has announced a special CD bringing a host of former Doctor Who companions together. The Fifth Doctor meets up with his distant past – the schoolteacher who settled down, the space pilot who became a King, the security agent who died and lived again and the swinging Sixties secretary who has made her own way in the world.
As might be inferred from the description, the story will star Peter Davison as the Doctor, with guest stars William Russell (Ian Chesterton), Sarah Sutton (Nyssa), Peter Purves (Steven Taylor), Jean Marsh (Sara Kingdom), Anneke Wills (Polly).
The story is written by Eddie Robson, and will also feature the vocal talents of Nick Briggs as the Daleks, and Dan Starkey as the Sontarans.
Recording kicked off on 12th May, with the CD expected to be released in December as a free special exclusively for subscribers to the main Doctor Who range at that time, with the option for future annual subscribers to select it as their free extra.
Full details and subscription options may be found on the Big Finish website; the company have also launched a new fan page on Facebook.
