The Doctor Who main range subscriber special for 2012 is Night of the Stormcrow, a two-part story starring Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor and Louise Jameson as Leela.
“Marc Platt has written a deliciously dark tale that should chill our subscribers in the winter nights,” says producer David Richardson. “Night of the Stormcrow is about that nagging neurosis you get when you’re awake at 3:30 in the morning; the terrible fear of what is lurking in the pitch black...”
Night of the Stormcrow will be released in December and the guest cast includes Ann Bell (Tenko) as Professor Gesima Cazalet and Chase Masterson (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) as Peggy Brooks.
High atop Mount McKerry sits the observatory. For years now it's been watching the skies. Now something's watching back. Something dark and huge that blots out the stars. Something with giant wings. Something that kills.
When the TARDIS is struck mid-flight, the Doctor and Leela crash-land on the mountain to find they are not the only aliens to be visiting. Beings of nothing infest the complex, staff members are dead or mad. As the survivors argue amongst themselves and attempt to take advantage of the situation, a creature vast and terrible is coming ever closer.
A creature called... Stormcrow.
Night of the Stormcrow is free to subscribers to the main range whose subscription includes the December release 1001 Nights. It can also be requested by 12-release CD or download main range subscribers as a free bonus story. The story will also be available to buy from December 2013.
