Four brand new stories of the Companion Chronicles format, following one of the Doctor's closest friends and their perspective on an adventure. Here, Jamie McCrimmon (Frazer Hines) is in the spotlight. 1. The Mouthless Dead by John Pritchard. The TARDIS arrives in 1920s England, the Doctor, Jamie, Ben and Polly finding themselves in a wintry dusk beside a railway line. The station nearby appears deserted, but there are figures watching from the shadows, all of them waiting for a dead man's train. 2. The Story of Extinction by Ian Atkins. Civilisations rise and fall - and few planets have seen this happen more often than Amyrndaa. The Doctor, Jamie and Victoria join a survey team to find out why on the planet where everything is suited to creating life, nothing lives for long. 3. The Integral by David Bartlett. When tempers fray in the TARDIS, the Doctor struggles to help Jamie and Zoe resolve their differences. Arriving at Aspen Base proves a welcome distraction; but the isolated facility is under siege. Can Jamie's belief in right and wrong withstand the perspective changing power of the Integral? 4. The Edge by Rob Nisbet.The Edge is the galaxy's scientific hub of experimentation, theoretical breakthroughs and invention - just the sort of place to interest the Doctor and Zoe.
However, a secret lies hidden in The Edge laboratories. Jamie instinctively knows that something is wrong, and it doesn't take long for him to be proved right. All of the second Doctor's eras are recreated in this set, from the early days of Jamie, Ben and Polly, to the end of his time with Jamie and Zoe. Frazer Hines revisits his role as Jamie, a companion of the Second Doctor (played on television by Patrick Troughton) back in 1966-69, one of the most popular TARDIS travellers. CAST: Frazer Hines (Jamie McCrimmon/The Doctor/Narrator), Anneke Wills (Polly/Narrator), Elliot Chapman (Ben Jackson), Deborah Watling (Victoria Waterfield), Wendy Padbury (Zoe Herriot), Robert Whitelock (Provost Curtis), Lisa Bowerman (Selsey).
