The Blazing Hour
Peter Davison (The Doctor), Mark Strickson (Vislor Turlough), Rakie Ayola (Violet Hardaker)
The TARDIS brings The Doctor and Turlough to a high-tech scientific installation on the planet Testament in the distant future. The human race have become intergalactic buccaneers, thanks to their ability to generate vast amounts of power for long-distance travel. Testament is the source of that power – and the Doctor has never quite understood how it works.
But experiments are underway on Testament – experiments with potentially explosive and devastating consequences. And even The Doctor may be too late to stop it.
With politicians and bureaucrats getting in the way, the race is on. Not to stop a disaster – but to save as many people as possible.
Peter Davison and Colin Baker are set to return as the Fifth and Sixth Doctors once again in two new four-part audio dramas. The Blazing Hour and Colony of Fear will see The Doctor travel into the far future to face horrifically inhuman monsters, as well as terrifyingly giant insects.
Mark Strickson and Miranda Raison will also reprise their roles as The Doctors’ respective companions Turlough and Constance in each story, alongside guest stars Rakie Ayola as Violet Hardaker and Nicholas Asbury as Mollis.
Colony of Fear and The Blazing Hour will be two of the final stories in Big Finish‘s original Doctor Who: Monthly Adventure range, which is due to end in March 2021. Following this, revamped ranges, featuring a regular rotation of releases, with each Doctor starring in their own box sets of adventures throughout the year, is due to begin in January 2022.
