Peter Davison, Janet Fielding and Sarah Sutton reprise their roles
as The Doctor, Tegan and Nyssa, in a run of stories following on
from 1983's adventure The Arc of Infinity: "They say there'll be
thousands pouring into Manchester tomorrow. From all over the
county, north and south. It'll be a piece of history. People will
remember this!" Lost in the smog of the Industrial Revolution, the
TARDIS crashes four miles south of Manchester, in the grounds of
Hurley Hall - a grand mansion belonging to a local factory owner, a
proudly self-made man. But while Hurley dreams of growing richer
still on the wealth of secret knowledge locked up in the Doctor's
time and space machine, his servants hope only for a fair day's pay
for a fair day's work. His young maid Cathy, for instance, whom
Nyssa learns is looking forward to joining the working people's
march to St Peter's Field, in the heart of the city. There'll be
speeches and banners and music. It'll be like one big jamboree...Or
so she thinks. For the city's establishment have called in their
own private militia, to control the crowd.One of the darkest days
in Manchester's history is about to unfold - and the Doctor, Nyssa
and Tegan are right in the thick of it. Forever kept busy, Peter
Davison's most recently been seen on the London stage in the
critically acclaimed The Vertical Hour, and in the musical Gypsy
opposite Imelda Staunton. The Doctor, Nyssa and Tegan team first
met in 1981's Doctor Who adventure Logopolis, where Tegan and Nyssa
were on hand to help the Doctor (Tom Baker) regenerate into his
fifth incarnation (Peter Davison). One of Big Finish's last outings
with The Fifth Doctor, Tegan and Nyssa was in Doctor Who - The
Fifth Doctor Boxed Set, one story from which (Iterations of I) won
the Scribe Award at the 2015 San Diego Comic Con. CAST: Peter
Davison (The Doctor), Janet Fielding (Tegan), Sarah Sutton (Nyssa),
Hayley Jayne Standing (Cathy), Robbie Stevens (Hurley), Gerald
Kearns (William), Philip Labey (Thomas Tyler), Wayne Forester
(Walton/Roberts/Rev Small), Liz Morgan (Mrs Hurley/Sister).
