Directing Peri

Nicola Bryant – well known to Doctor Who fans as the companion of the Fifth and Sixth Doctors Peri Brown – makes her Doctor Who audio directorial debut shortly with Big Finish!

Nicola previously directed some of Big Finish’s UNIT and Judge Dredd audio adventures. The release of The Prisoner of Peladon this September will see the actress join Lisa Bowerman as a former 1980s Doctor Who actress in the ranks of the Big Finish audio range.

The Companion Chronicles: The Prisoner of Peladon stars David Troughton as King Peladon, a part he last played 37 years ago in 1972′s The Curse of Peladon. His other Doctor Who roles famously saw him appear alongside Second Doctor father Patrick in 1969′s The War Games and latterly as Professor Hobbes in 2008′s Midnight.

Also appearing in The Companion Chronicles: The Prisoner of Peladon is Nicholas Briggs as the Ice Warriors.
