Note: Second in a 5-volume series of audio dramas starring Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor, following 2009's similar Hornets' Nest.
Tom Baker reprises the role of the Fourth Doctor in the second of five thrilling brand new adventures, with Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey
Someone has painted the Doctor's likeness into a famous poster by Toulouse-Lautrec, leading Mrs Wibbsey and him to Paris in the 1890s. There the streets are thronged with artists and their muses — ladies of the night such as the young girl La Charlotte.
But a murderer is also at large, and Lautrec's name is whispered with fear and suspicion. As they become immersed in the delights of the Moulin Rouge and the shadows of the Montmartre Cemetery, the travellers gradually uncover the gruesome truth about the missing women of Paris.
They also realise that someone has been expecting them...
With Tom Baker as the Doctor, Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey, Mark Meadows as Lautrec, Finty Williams as La Charlotte, Rowena Cooper as La Concierge, Rupert Holliday Evans as the Artist and Richard Franklin as Mike Yates, The Demon of Paris is the second of five linked stories written by the acclaimed Paul Magrs.
