Patient Zero Preview

Starring Colin Baker as the Doctor and India Fisher as Charley Pollard, Patient Zero marks the beginning of the end for Charley’s time as a companion to not one, but two completely different and distant incarnations of the Time Lord.

Patient ZeroWritten by Nicholas Briggs, Patient Zero pits the Doctor and Charley against both Viyrans and Daleks…

Finally, the Sixth Doctor challenges Charlotte Pollard to tell him the truth. Who is she really? What is she doing in the TARDIS?

To discover the answers, the Doctor must travel back in time, beyond all known civilisations to the vast, mysterious Amethyst Viral Containment Station. But answers lie within the TARDIS too. Someone who has been there a long, long time…

Meanwhile, the Daleks have travelled back in time on their own mission, to bring them the ultimate victory they crave. But it is a mission so complex and delicate that even they know they must beware the web of time…

Who is Patient Zero? What has happened to Charley? And why have the legendary Viyrans been summoned?

This release also features the third installment of the special Companions Chronicles mini series, The Three Companions – Marc Platt’s The Brigadier’s story stars Nicholas Courtney as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart recalling the story of a rare excursion in the TARDIS with Third Doctor…
