From the pen of former TV director and current producer of Doctor Who Online Adventures, Brendan Sheppard, comes an exciting new and original audio drama entitled One Fine Time Lord. The audio drama was produced in tandem with BBC Children In Need, Doctor Who Online, Anglia Ruskin University, and Planetary Productions.
The story focuses on Lord Archeron, the last of the “great” Time Lords, and his efforts to bring peace to the warring houses on Gallifrey. His “uneasy friendship” with a young boy will be tested when Archeron’s true plans for the people of Galifrey are revealed.
Sheppard had this to say about the drama:
“I wrote this political thriller script over a very long period of time and knew it would be a great idea for an audio drama, I never imagined the sheer amount of people that would get on board to make it happen though especially in a production that is a spin off to the hit TV series. I’d like to thank my wonderful producers, fantastic cast and Doctor Who Online all of whom dedicated their time and expertise (for free) to make this production happen and I can’t wait for you to hear it!”
A special premiere event will be hosted on the campus of Anglia Ruskin University on the 14th, with drinks and refreshments at The Bakers public house following the event. If you’re interested in snatching up some of the extremely limited tickets, you can email [email protected] and make sure you put OFTL TICKETS in the subject. Tickets are limited to two (2) per guest and all requests will be placed in a lottery. Tickets are free, and if you want to make a donation to Children In Need, you can do so that evening or via the BBC Children In Need website.
The posters for the event are top notch, and dare I say, in the vein of the classic Star Wars posters that Drew Struzan designed. The trailer sounds rather exciting too, and I cannot help but wonder who that mysterious young boy is…
Even better, the whole project, in addition to celebrating Who’s 50th, is to help benefit Children In Need. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think! Also, sound off below if you are able to get tickets and check out the premiere.
