Big Finish have released details and a cover for Mission to Magnus, the second instalment of the Lost Season of episodes based on the missing series of Doctor Who from 1985.
Starring Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant as the Sixth Doctor and Peri, Mission to Magnus is one of a long-awaited series of release from Big Finish and co-stars Nabil Shaban reprising the role of Sil the Mentor (last seen in 1986’s Mindwarp segment of Trial of a Time Lord).
The Doctor and Peri face enemies at every turn on the planet Magnus. There’s the Time Lord bully Anzor, who made the Doctor’s life hell during his time at the Academy. There’s also Rana Zandusia, the matriarchal ruler of the planet, who seeks to prise the secret of time travel from these alien visitors. Also on Magnus is the slug-like Sil, still bitter from his defeat on the planet Varos and seeking to make his fortune from the most potentially destructive ends. And, deep within the planet, there is something else. Another old enemy of the Doctor’s. And the future is looking decidedly colder…
Written by Philip Martin and with a cover by Alex Mallinson, Mission to Magnus is finally released in December 2009! Click the cover above for a better view, and hot foot it over to www.bigfinish.com to preorder!
