The Aztecs is surely one of Doctor Who’s greatest stories, full of sizzling dialogue and intriguing tales regarding the downside to time travel.
For those young enough to remember the Target novelisation from 1984 prepare to get excited as we can announce that AudioGo plan to release The Aztecs as an unabridged dramatization on CD read by original Doctor Who companion William Russell (Ian Chesterton) who will flesh out John Lucarotti’s book with some fresh sound design.
“The TARDIS materialises in Mexico during the Aztec civilisation, and Barbara is hailed as a reincarnation of Yetaxa, High Priest of the Aztecs. But whilst each of the travellers becomes embroiled in the arcane ways of the Aztecs, Barbara’s determination to change history seems doomed from the start.”
This fresh interpretation of the novel will excite Doctor Who fans old and new as it reminds the world exactly how the first Doctor took a unique and impressive stance against the effects of interfering with events that have already happened. For anyone who wants to find out exactly when the Doctor started questioning the implications of history tampering, this is the best place!
