Also joining Susan in this conflict are her old friend, Ian Chesterton (played once again by original series actor William Russell) and The Doctor himself… but probably not the one she was expecting.
Actor Carole Ann Ford said: “It’s a very complex, interesting and fascinating piece of work which goes backwards and forwards in time in a way we’ve never actually done before in Doctor Who. We’re finding all sorts of extraordinary ways to chase after time machines, and the different phases in Time Lords’ lives are being investigated.
“Also, it’s Susan when she’s pushed on a few years. She has different attitudes to things and expects different behaviour from people that she’s with. So this is marvellous. She’s a much stronger person, and I really like that. ”
Producer David Richardson added: “The Time War is a mighty battle on many fronts, and we are telling that huge story on many fronts too. This is Susan’s story – drafted into the war, an agent of the Time Lords and reunited with her past, firstly with Ian Chesterton, and then later with her grandfather in his Eighth incarnation.
“How lucky was I to spend recording days with legends like Carole Ann Ford, William Russell and Paul McGann, such key figures from the classic series thrown into this compelling era of new series Doctor Who? And with them are Veklin (Beth Chalmers) and Rasmus (Damian Lynch) – two characters whose story arcs spread through a myriad of releases, and help tie together our intricate Time War range.”
Susan’s War will contain four electrifying stories:
Sphere of Influence by Eddie Robson
The Uncertain Shore by Simon Guerrier
Assets of War by Lou Morgan
The Shorch Intervention by Alan Barnes
More story details will be revealed nearer the release date.
The four-disc box set of Susan’s War is now available to pre-order in collector’s edition CD format (priced at £24.99), or on download (at £19.99).
