Doctor Who Main Range 221 - The Star Men CD-Audio
by Andrew Smith
Part of the Doctor Who Main Range series
Astronomical navigation is a tricky business. To help Adric with his studies, the Doctor sets course for Gallius Ultima -a planet on the edge of the Milky Way, housing one of the most impressive observatories ever constructed.
But the TARDIS arrives to find Gallius U in a state of emergency, tracking the return of the Explorer-class ship Johannes Kepler from its mission into the heart of the mysterious Large Magellanic Cloud.
A mission that met with disaster...To find out what overtook the crew of the Johannes Kepler, the Doctor and his companions must journey into the heart of the Cloud...and beyond, into the darkness of another reality altogether.
The universe of the Star Men. The Star Men marks the first of a trilogy of stories reuniting the 1982 TARDIS crew for Peter Davison's Fifth Doctor - Adric (Matthew Waterhouse), Tegan (Janet Fielding) and Nyssa (Sarah Sutton).
Director Barnaby Edwards is not only an overworked director for Big Finish productions, but on top of many audiobook voice-over duties, he's also the main Dalek operator in TV's Doctor Who.Sue Holderness takes an overdue dramatic role in this story, but is best known for playing Boycie's wife Marlene in much-loved sitcoms Only Fools and Horses and The Green Green Grass. Guest star Sophie Wu will be familiar to any fans of cult film hits Kiss-Ass and Kick Ass 2, or the much missed spooky BBC series The Fades.
