Part one of the new Tom Baker-starring Doctor Who serial, Demon Quest, is out in September. The title – Relics – gives a little away about the story, which reunites Baker once more with Richard Franklin and Susan Jameson as Mike Yates and Mrs Wibsey.
The Doctor’s return to Nest Cottage lands him in trouble when a key component from the TARDIS disappears. Mrs. Wibbsey is inadvertently responsible, but all she can offer in recompense is a bag containing four curious objects. It seems that each one is a clue, and the beginning of a chase through Time. In ancient Sussex they are apprehended by primitive tribesfolk, and mistaken for wizards.
Can the revered goddess Wibbsentia get them out of hot water? Who is the fearful wizard in the neighbouring village, and why is the countryside littered with bodies? The Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey are about to discover that all is not right with history…
Alon with the main cast, Relics also features Nigel Anthony as the Wizard and Rupert Holliday Evans and Kate Sachs as the Warriors.
Demon Quest, like Hornet’s Nest, is written by Paul Magrs, with cover art by Ben Willsher.
Released on September 2nd, 2010, by AudioGo (the new name for BBC Audiobooks), Demon Quest: Relics is available to buy now with an RRP of Â£9.99 – but you can pre-order Demon Quest from Amazon for just Â£6.99!
