The Time Vampire
Long-term fans will know that Leela remained on Gallifrey following her departure from the TARDIS in The Invasion of Time (1978). This story takes place some time after that…
Leela, in her last moments of life, recalls a long-forgotten memory: a time in the TARDIS. The Doctor is worried that K9′s increasingly bizarre behaviour might become dangerous. He decides to make a new model, little knowing that the fate of all three time travellers has long since been decided.
As Leela recalls the chilling connection between K9′s â€˜illnessâ€™, the Z-nai and the haunted sea fort in which the TARDIS lands, she prepares for her final journey: into the land of her ancestors; the Afterlife
Written and directed by Nigel Fairs, this entry in The Companion Chronicles series stars Louise Jameson as Leela, and John Leeson as K9, and is available from Big Finish on CD and download later this month.
