Mission to Magnus v2
Among the recently announced audio production from Big Finish of the original Season 23 (the planned 1985 run that was shelved when Doctor Who took an 18 month break) are a range of episodes that have either been available as novels or abandoned altogether.
Mission to Magnus is another of the adventures that was novelised for TARGET books, despite never having been on screen.
Planned to star Colin Baker, Nicola Bryant and featuring the original return of the Mentor Sil (first seen in Vengeance on Varos and later seen in the Trial of a Time Lord substory Mind Warp), the original Mission to Magnus also featured the return of the Ice Warriors of Mars!
There’s more on this at Den of Geek, as well as a cast photo of Baker, gorgeous Nicola Bryant and actor Nabil Shaban (Sil).
