The Guardian of the Solar System

The Guardian of the Solar System is a new Companion Chronicles release from Big Finish, starring Jean Marsh as Sara Kingdom, and Niall MacGregor as Robert, her confidante.

The Guardian of the Solar System from Big FinishIf you haven’t been keeping up to date with the “life” of the late Sara Kingdom, you won’t know that she now inhabits an old cottage in the far future, and that Robert visits her from time to time. They talk, and she recalls stories from her travels with the Doctor and Steven Taylor. This tale takes place between episodes seven and eight of The Daleks’ Masterplan

Space Security Agent Sara Kingdom is dead, her ashes strewn on the planet Kembel. But, in an old house in Ely, Sara Kingdom lives on…

Now joined in the house by her confidante Robert, Sara recalls her travels in the TARDIS with the Doctor – and a particular adventure when the ship appeared to land inside a giant clock, where old men are caught in its workings…

And behind this nightmare is an old enemy: Mavic Chen, Guardian of the Solar System.
Then and now, Sara’s past is catching up with her. The cogs have come full circle…

Kasterborous reviewer Mez Burdett says:

“Jean Marsh tells this story with aplomb, deciding to do fewer impressions of characters and more of a dramatic reading of the events that unfold. Niall McGregor serves well as her support, asking the right questions at the right time and providing the momentum that Sara needs to move forward.

“Guardian of the Solar System feels right. It’s been over forty years since the events of The Daleks’ Masterplan took place and yet with some excellent writing from Simon Guerrier and heart warming direction from Lisa Bowerman this tale feels fresh and exciting whilst also giving us a trip down memory lane to visit some old friends again for a brief time.”

We’ll be running a full review of this new Companion Chronicles adventure soon!

The Guardian of the Solar System is out now, and available on CD or MP3 direct from www.bigfinish.com.
