Released by Big Finish in August, The Whispering Forest stars Peter Davison, with Janet Fielding, Sarah Sutton and Mark Strickson as the Fifth Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and Turlough, in a new adventure by Stephen Cole.
Taking place in an alien forest, the travellers are immediately considered a threat – and you’ll have to buy a copy from Big Finish to find out how they get through this particular tale!
The TARDIS arrives in alien woodlands, where a small group of humans hold tight against the the menace of the Takers â€“ strange creatures who come by night to spirit away members of their settlement.
But if thereâ€™s one thing that the inhabitants of Purity Bay fear more than the Takers, itâ€™s the dirt and disease spread by strangers. Strangers like the Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Nyssaâ€¦
The fanatical Sister Mertil and her hygiene-obsessed acolytes are victims of a terrible corruption â€“ but not in the way they think. Only the whispering forest knows the truthâ€¦
Also starring Hayley Atwell as Seksa, Sue Wallace as Mertil/Woman, Paul Shelley as Jestan/Man/Taker,Â Harry Melling as Hervey/Taker/Demi-Taker, Lennox Greaves as Anulf/Taker and Aneurin Barnard as Antan/Taker, The Whispering Forest is directed by Barnaby Edwards, with music and sound by Richard Fox and Lauren Yason, while the cover art is by Iain Robertson.
