After the trials and tribulations of Ravenous, it’s a change of pace for the Eighth Doctor, Liv and Helen as they find themselves stranded in 2020 London without the TARDIS! Coming July 2020 is the first in a set of four boxsets in the new Doctor Who: Stranded range. To add to the mix we have Torchwood’s Sgt Andy and new face Tania Bell.
Here’s an extract from the press release:
The Doctor swaps outer space for inner London in this forthcoming full cast audio drama, and unlike the TARDIS, the Time Lord’s house on Baker Street isn’t bigger on the inside, leading to domestic tensions.
Paul McGann stars as the Doctor, with faithful returning companions Helen Sinclair (played by Hattie Morahan) and Liv Chenka (played by Nicola Walker). Doctor Who: Stranded also introduces a new pair to the TARDIS team in the shape of Tania Bell (played by Rebecca Root) and Sergeant Andy Davidson (Tom Price reprising his role from the popular Doctor Who spin-off, Torchwood).
The TARDIS is gone. Stranded in one time and place, the Doctor, Liv and Helen seek refuge in Baker Street. But the house has changed: they now have neighbours – not all of them welcoming. And someone has a dire warning for the future.
The Doctor and friends face their greatest challenge yet: living one day after another, in 2020 London.
Actor Paul McGann said:
“It’s not our usual fare, so it feels refreshing and somehow wintry. It’s dark outside. That time of year when the walls are closing in a bit. It’s got the flavour of a bunch of polar explorers stuck on a rock for the winter.
“What I like most about it is the contrast – the whizzing round galaxies and having adventures, and suddenly they’re having to share a space and they get cabin fever. And so the Doctor gets a bit bitter about it all. But they’re trying to make the best of it. It’s good and it’s funny as well.”
