“The Voord rule here. The Voord will hunt you down, and you will all be harvested.”
“I suppose that’s the kind of thing you types dream of, isn’t it? Enforcing conformity on people in their sleep?”
The real world implications of two teachers disappearing from London during the heart of the Cold War with a teenage pupil…worse, one with forged documentation, is explored as a jailed Ian finds himself under interrogation.
Well. This I certainly wasn’t expecting.
Those who’ve perused my earlier discussion of the Big Finish Doctor Who audio drama line should be familiar with the course chart of my ongoing journey into an ever-widening scope of Whovianism, and in particular the fact that the absolute last of the original series Doctors (under which umbrella I include Paul McGann’s telefilm Eighth Doctor, if that matters to the reader) with whom I’ve developed a degree of affection was the original, the template, the First Doctor as portrayed by the late William Hartnell.
So it was with an admitted admixture of trepidation and curiosity which I approached this month’s Lost Stories entry, featuring Ian Chesterton (William Russell) and Vicki (Maureen O’Brien), who also essay the roles of the Hartnell Doctor and Barbara, respectively, as well as alternating as omniscient narrator to set scenes and describe the undialogued stage direction.
