A new companion for the sixth Doctor, as played in the BBC TV Series by Colin Baker, is introduced in this audiobook for CD as the Doctor meets history lecturer and cake lover Dr Evelyn Smythe.
Jacqueline Baker has written the tale to neatly introduce this new character by forming the story around her.

Tom Baker’s sixth Doctor is given a renaissance in the Big Finish MP3 audiobooks and he is far more mellow than his on-screen persona. Maggie Stables portrayal of the new companion is a friendly, slightly kooky breath of fresh air and the chemistry between the pair is tangible and delightful.
Big Finsih production’s attention to detail with sound effects and incidental music on this audiobook for MP3 give a ring of historical authenticity to the Tudor settings - from the court of Queen Mary to the alehouses of London – and make this four-part tale an extremely entertaining listen.
