The Sky Man
Derek Jacobi (The Master), Jonny Green (Cole Jarnish), Emily Barber (Elidh), Robert Daws (Anvar)
When his new companion decides to save a planet, the Master indulges this most futile of requests. Materialising on a primitive, agrarian world, both the strangers quickly find their place in it… until fallout from the War invades their happy paradise.
The Sky Man was the third story in the audio anthology Only the Good, produced by Big Finish Productions. It was written by James Goss and featured Derek Jacobi as the Master and Jonny Green as Cole Jarnish.
