The Hollows of Time
Colin Baker (The Doctor), Nicola Bryant (Peri), David Garfield (Professor Stream), Trevor Littledale (Reverend Foxwell), Susan Sheridan (Mrs Streeter), Hywel John (Steel Specs), Victoria Finney (Jane)
The Doctor and Peri have been on holiday, visiting old friend Reverend Foxwell in the sleepy English village of Hollowdean. But why are their memories so hazy?
Piecing together events they recall a mysterious chauffeur, who is not what he seems, and Foxwell’s experiments that could alter the nature of reality. Huge sand creatures have been sighted on the dunes, and many of the locals are devoted to a leader known as ‘Professor Stream’.
But who is Stream? And what lies within the Hollows of Time?
The Doctor will discover that not every question has a definitive answer.
- The Hollows of Time is the fourth Lost Story of Season 23 to be developed into an audio play
- After Peri accuses him of deliberately deceiving her, The Doctor tells her that Time Lords do not do such things. However, his next incarnation would later deceive and manipulate his companion Ace and others on numerous occasions in furtherance of his schemes. (Remembrance of the Daleks)
- The Doctor notes that his previous encounter with the Tractators occurred aeons from the 20th century, which is consistent with the fact that Frontios took place on the planet of the same name at an unknown time in the far future.
- The Doctor is initally unable to remember the name of his vintage car, Bessie, which he used mostly in his third incarnation. (Doctor Who and the Silurians) The Fourth, Seventh and Eighth Doctors used the car on one occasion each. (Robot, Battlefield, The Dying Days)
