January at Big Finish has officially started with the company’s first release of 2013, The Flames of Cadiz.
The First Doctor Companion Chronicle, starring William Russell as Ian Chesterton and Carole Ann Ford as the Doctor’s granddaughter Susan, is an exciting historical adventure and for this month only it’ll be sent out as a special two disc release.
Written by Marc Platt (writer of 1989’s Ghost Light) and directed by Lisa Bowerman (Professor Bernice Summerfield) The Flames of Cadiz finds this particular TARDIS team in an adventure typical of their era:
The TARDIS materializes in Spain in the late sixteenth century. The country is at war with England – and the travellers find themselves on the wrong side of the battle lines.
When Ian and his new friend Esteban (Nabil Elouahabi) are captured by the Inquisition, the Doctor, Susan and Barbara plan to rescue them.
But these are dark days in human history. And heretics face certain death…
The Flames of Cadiz is available from www.bigfinish.com on CD for £12.99 or via download for £9.99. It will be shipped out alongside the first release in the Destiny of the Doctor series, Hunters of Earth.
