There’s going to be a little change in the Big Finish release schedule due to some technical difficulties, so in April 2013 there will be a different Companion Chronicle release.
The Alchemists, a First Doctor tale, was due out in April. However that has now been postponed and in its place you will get another story from the same era of the show, The Library of Alexandria by Simon Guerrier.
Performed by the epic William Russell as Ian Chesterton and Susan Franklyn as Hypatia, the story is an interesting one:
The port of Alexandria, 5th Century AD.
The Doctor, Ian, Susan and Barbara have taken a break from their travels, and are enjoying a few weeks in the sunshine – and the chance to appreciate the magnificent Library of Alexandria.
Ian also takes the chance to enjoy friendship with the philosopher Hypatia – but things here will not last forever.
The time travellers know that the library will soon be lost to history. What they are about to discover is the terrifying reason why…
So, a different Companion Chronicle in April but still a great story, we have no doubt!
You can pre-order The Library of Alexandria from www.bigfinish.com.
