The Early Adventures : 4.4 - The Wreck of the World CD-Audio
Part of the Doctor Who - The Early Adventures series
Undergoing repairs in deep space, the TARDIS is caught in a collision with the huge, decaying wreck of a starship.
Zoe, spacewalking, is separated from her companions in the crash, and the Doctor and Jamie wake to find the TARDIS fused to the side of the ship.
Venturing inside to rescue their friend, they discover that they are on board The World, the very first colony ship to leave Earth, lost mid-voyage under unknown circumstances. And they are not alone. A terrible suspension chamber is filled with dead, withered human bodies, and a team of gun-toting astronauts are stalking the corridors.
But a far greater threat lurks deep inside. The terrifying force responsible for the scuttling of the ship is active once more - and if it can't be stopped, it won't just be the end of this World.
It'll be the end of all of them. The Early Adventures are a range designed to tell stories in long gone Doctor Who eras, with narration from some of the actors there at the time.
Here Wendy Padbury reprises her 1968/9 role as the Doctor's travelling companion Zoe.
Actor Frazer Hines not only plays his character from the time - the Scottish Highlander Jamie McCrimmon, but delivers a stunning impersonation of the Second Doctor as played by Patrick Troughton.
CAST: Wendy Padbury (Zoe Heriot/Narrator), Frazer Hines (Jamie McCrimmon/The Doctor), Judith Roddy (Commander Lorne), Adam Newington (Twenty), Don McCorkindale (Porthintus), Richenda Carey (Professor Blavatsky).
