The Time Museum
William Russell (Ian Chesterton) and Philip Pope (Pendolin)
“This is The Chesterton Exhibition. A series of breathtakingly faithful tableaux, painstakingly detailed to the nth degree. Dedicated to the life of that most extraordinary time traveller, Ian Chesterton!”
Ian finds himself in a shrine to his own past, and on the run with a man named Pendolin.
From Coal Hill School to Jobis Station, from Totter’s Yard to the Crusades, Ian’s history is unfolding.
And a confrontation with a deadly enemy with a voracious appetite awaits.
- The Time Museum was the fifty-seventh release in the Companion Chronicles audio range.
- The Time Museum has been invaded by creatures which feed on memories. They devoured every exhibit except for the Chesterton Exhibition, and killed everyone in the museum except for Ian and Pendolin, who hid. Ian is severely affected by them at first. His memories of his travels with the Doctor become muddled and he cannot even the remember the name of his wife Barbara Chesterton.
- The Time Museum featured a exhibit on the Sontaran-Rutan War containing thousands of Sontaran and Rutan Host ships and millions of lives, all of whom were eaten.
- Ian grew up in London during the Blitz in World War II.
- Pendolin brought Ian to the Time Museum in the hope of luring the Doctor to be his star exhibit. However, he was unable to attract the Doctor’s attention.
- This audio drama was recorded on 12 October 2011.
- After Ian demands to be returned home, Pendolin remarks that he is being extremely consistent as always sought to go home no matter how many wonderful places that he had been visited or wonderful things he had seen. (An Unearthly Child)
- The Time Museum contains a recreation of the metal corridors of the Dalek City on Skaro, where Ian encountered the Daleks for the first time. (The Daleks)
