Trial of a Time Lord: Vol. 2 Audiobook Now Available!
The final volume of the adaptation of the classic Doctor Who story is now available! As read by former actors Bonnie Langford (companion Mel Bush) and Michael Jayston (The Valeyard), the collection features the novelisations of the final two parts of the Sixth Doctor story arc, The Trial of a Time Lord: Terror of the Vervoids and The Ultimate Foe.
From the description:
Terror of the Vervoids: On trial for his life, the Doctor defends himself by telling of an adventure set on board the Hyperion III space liner in his future. Answering a distress call, the Doctor and Mel arrive on the liner just as a series of grisly murders begins. Who is behind the murders? Do the enigmatic Mogarians have anything to do with them? Who sent the distress call to the TARDIS? And what hideous menace lies waiting in the Hydroponic Centre?
The Ultimate Foe: While the Doctor asserts that the evidence of the Matrix, the repository of all Time Lord knowledge, has been tampered with, the mysterious and vengeful prosecuting council, the Valeyard, is confident that the Doctor will be sentenced to death. In a dramatic intervention the Valeyard’s true identity is revealed but he escapes from the Courtroom into the Matrix, and it is into this nightmare world that the Doctor must follow – to face his ultimate foe…
If for no other reason than getting to hear the Valeyard and Mel narrate the story, this is a must have for fans of the Colin Baker story. The novels are by Pip and Jane Baker, who wrote the scripts for several classic Who episodes, including the televised versions of Terror of the Vervoids and The Ultimate Foe.
With an RRP of £18.35, the CD set is available for purchase from Amazon for just £9.80, a saving of 47%!
