Doctor Who: Persuasion
Well, I'm delighted to be able to announce that I've fulfilled an ambition which, if not quite lifelong, dates back at least as far as my tenth birthday, and written a four-part Doctor Who story for the Seventh Doctor as played by Sylvester McCoy!
It's called Persuasion and it's a full-cast audio drama from Big Finish Productions. It's too soon to say too much about the plot (or, indeed, the wonderful guest cast) but suffice to say it involves the arrival in our universe of an impossible ancient power, the race to obtain scientific secrets at the end of World War II and a dark secret of the Doctor's. The story is released in July (if you're of a mind to, you can pre-order it here: http://bigfinish.com/releases/v/persuasion-713).
The photograph above is from the studio recording and shows Sylvester back again as the Doctor, together with his two companions, Elizabeth Klein (Tracy Childs) and Will Arrowsmith (Christian Edwards).
