The next Doctor Who trilogy starring Sylvester McCoy as the Doctor was completed in studio today, with special guest Samuel West in attendance, playing Aristophanes!
It turns out that the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) has quite a bit invested in famed Greek playwright Aristophanes (Samuel West - son of acting legends Timothy West and Prunella Scales, star of Any Human Heart, Mr Selfridge and currently on TV screens in Fleming). The Doctor, Ace (Sophie Aldred) and Hex (Philip Olivier) drop by for a visit in one of our two main range September releases, Doctor Who: Mask of Tragedy.
Written by James Goss with a beautiful blend of the tragic and comic, there's romance, drama on an epic scale and a spot of feminism thrown in. But to say more would be to give too much away!
Doctor Who: Mask of Tragedy is the second story in this year's main range Seventh Doctor trilogy. Already recorded is Jonathan Morris's Revenge of the Swarm, featuring the return of the monster last seen in TV story The Invisible Enemy, and Signs & Wonders by Matt Fitton, which wraps the trilogy up and is also already in the can. You can pre-order all of these stories now on CD or download, singly or as part of a subscription.
