The Early Adventures: The Fifth Traveller
Initially available exclusively via the Big Finish website. The release date for Amazon and other retailers is November 30th.
The Doctor, Ian, Barbara, Vicki and Jospa land the TARDIS on the homeworld of the Arunde. Emerging into the jungle that covers the planet and encountering the strange wildlife dwelling within, the travellers are unaware that the true rulers live high above them in the trees.
The ape-like members of the tribe are in trouble. The last Matriar’s nest has been lost to the surface, and the people are hungry… Maybe these strangers may be responsible. And some believe they may be salvation.
The TARDIS crew are about to find themselves in the middle of somebody else’s battle. But there’s more at stake than even they can know.
Ian remembers marking schoolwork at Coal Hill the night before he met the Doctor. (An Unearthly Child)
Jospa inserts himself into the Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Vicki‘s memories of their recent travels to Vortis, (The Web Planet) Rome, ( The Romans), Byzantium, (Byzantium!) and China. (The Eleventh Tiger)
Jospa reminds the Doctor of his promise to return to Susan one day. (The Dalek Invasion of Earth)
