In The Mood For Some Tom Baker?
The third part of the new Demon Quest series of Tom Baker audios, A Shard of Ice, is now available as a downloadable purchase on Audible.co.uk!
In the icy wastes of the Murgin Pass, the Doctor and Mike take refuge in a remote lodge alongside Albert Tiermann, storyteller to the king. But the owner’s hospitality is repaid with a grisly attack, and suddenly death is amongst the small party. What is the significance of a book of fairy tales, one of which prophesies the Doctor’s encounter with an Ice Queen monster? What long-held secret is Albert Tiermann holding back? And what dark figure stalks the snowy mountainside? The answers to these questions add up to a terrifying encounter with a strangely familiar foe.
Fairy tales?Â Ice Queen?Â What is this, Narnia?Â Still, it sounds brilliant, with plot twists and the return of an enemy and, did we mention, Tom Baker!
Also starring in A Shard of Ice is Richard Franklin in the role of Mike Yates, Susan Jameson portraying Mrs. Wibbsey, Samuel West as Albert Tiermann, Carole Boyd as Frau Herz, Jan Francis as the White Witch Ice Queen, Tom Lawrence as Hans, and Liam Neeson as the voice of Aslan.Â Like the rest of the Demon Quest series, the story is written by Paul Magrs and listened to by you, assuming you buy it.Â And Audible’s a great place to do so if you’ve got Â£6.59 and your media preference is something along the lines of “MP3 > CD.”
