Ian’s History Unfolds…
We’re going right back to the beginning with this month’s Companion Chronicle from Big Finish with The Time Museum, a story performed by Doctor Who legend William Russell.
The story finds our intrepid adventurer in a museum dedicated to himself and all of his adventures in what Producer David Richardson describes as:
“A glorious script from James Goss, that takes a nostalgic foray into the early days of Doctor Who.”
Russell, who is nearly ninety years old now, still delivers quite a punch with his Doctor Who plays and this story sounds like it’s going to be one of the best yet:
“This is The Chesterton Exhibition. A series of breathtakingly faithful tableaux, painstakingly detailed to the nth degree. Dedicated to the life of that most extraordinary time traveller, Ian Chesterton!”
Ian finds himself in a shrine to his own past, and on the run with a man named Pendolin.
From Coal Hill School to Jobis Station, from Totter’s Yard to the Crusades, Ian’s history is unfolding.
And a confrontation with a deadly enemy with a voracious appetite awaits… “
The Time Museum stars William Russell and Phillip Pope, it’s also directed by Lisa Bowerman and can be bought on CD for £8.99 or via download for £7.99 from www.bigfinish.com.
