The longest-reigning onscreen incarnation of the Doctor is returning for his second round of BBC audio adventures. Tom Baker, who for years refused to participate in any Doctor Who projects was suddenly ready to jump back into the role for the recent five part audio series Hornet's Nest, Gallifrey News Base reports. The first release, Relics of Time, is the first of five parts of Demon Quest. The UK release date is September 2; those of us in the US have to wait until November 16.
Here's a plot summary of the new disc:
The Doctor returns to Nest Cottage but lands in trouble when a key component from the TARDIS disappears. Mrs. Wibbsey is inadvertently responsible, but all she can offer in recompense is a bag containing four curious objects. It seems that each one is a clue, and the beginning of a chase through Time. In ancient Sussex they are apprehended by primitive tribesfolk, and mistaken for wizards. Can the revered goddess Wibbsentia get them out of hot water? Who is the fearful wizard in the neighbouring village, and why is the countryside littered with bodies? The Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey are about to discover that all is not right with history.
Who's your favorite Doctor? The new actors have mentioned having to get used to seeing themselves on lunchboxes and as action figures. But how many of them have been immortalized on underpants?
