Destiny of the Doctor 5: Smoke and Mirrors
The latest in the range of Doctor Who 50th anniversary audios, Destiny of the Doctor: Smoke and Mirrors is a Fifth Doctor tale featuring Tegan, Nyssa and Adric and is narrated by the wonderful Janet Fielding, with a little help from Tim Beckmann as well.
The Doctor answers a psionic distress call sent from England in the 1920s. There, in the environs of a fairground, he is reunited with an old friend: Harry Houdini. To Adric and Nyssa the name means very little, but to the Doctor’s companion Tegan he is a legend. Escape artist extraordinaire, Houdini’s reputation will last for decades. But how does Houdini know so much about Tegan herself? Is it really just guesswork, as he says? Is Houdini right to be concerned about the fairground’s fortune teller, who claims to have supernatural skills? Both he and the Doctor suspect an alien influence may be at work. What neither the Doctor nor his friends realise is that, somewhere in the shadows, a sinister and all too familiar presence is lying in wait for them…
Smoke and Mirrors is an original adventure by writer Steve Lyons, a well known and extremely talented Doctor Who writer that has given us some real gems in the past, we’re sure that this story will be no different.
Destiny of the Doctor: Smoke and Mirrors will be available on CD or download from 2nd May and you can get your copy now from Amazon for just £7.19.
