The Professor and Ace arrive in present-day London to find the city strangely changed. England is a republic, ruled by an elderly Lord Protector more interested in a mysterious comet than the long-suppressed forces of revolution fomenting in his kingdom.
As political factions vie for power, the travellers become embroiled in the plans of King Charles XIV who stands poised to reclaim the throne. Can they discover who is behind the drastic alteration of history or will the Puritan cause triumph throughout eternity?
Starring Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred
Written by: Mark Gariss
A Brief History of these audios:
BBV was the first production company to do "Doctor Who" Audio dramas (prior to Big Finish) but they were not licensed by the BBC. People like Mark Gatiss, Nick Briggs, Nigel Fairs, and others were the writers and Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred, Lisa Bowerman, Lalla Ward, John Leeson, and Nick Briggs, among others, were the actors.
They were produced in very limited quantities and most did not get the proper shrink wrap you would come to expect from a new CD. However, it is the story that matters and for unofficial stuff it was quite good (no one else cared about Doctor Who at that time except the true fans who put these together).
