The Hollows of Time
Out this month from Big Finish comes The Hollows of Time, the latest installment from The Lost Stories season of Doctor Who adventures starring Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor and Nicola Bryant as Peri Brown.
The Lost Stories season takes place in the “gap” between Season 22 in 1985 and the eventual Season 23 in 1986 – the stories features in this series of plays were originally written or outlined for TV and Big Finish have done stirling work in recreating this era on audio.
The Doctor and Peri have been on holiday, visiting old friend Reverend Foxwell in the sleepy English village of Hollowdean. But why are their memories so hazy?
Piecing together events they recall a mysterious chauffeur, who is not what he seems, and Foxwell’s experiments that could alter the nature of reality. Huge sand creatures have been sighted on the dunes, and many of the locals are devoted to a leader known as ‘Professor Stream’.
But who is Stream? And what lies within the Hollows of Time?
The Doctor will discover that not every question has a definitive answer…
Also starring David Garfield as Professor Stream, Trevor Littledale as Reverend Foxwell, Susan Sheridan as Mrs Streeter, Hywel John as Steel Specs and Victoria Finney as Jane, The Hollows of Time is by former Doctor Who scriptwriter Christopher H. Bidmead, and is out now!
