Note: Big Finish subscribers whose subscription included this release also received a separate bonus CD: The Five Companions by Eddie Robson. These “freebies” for subscribers were an annual practice for Big Finish for over a decade (for the full list of such releases, visit the Big Finish subscriber bonus page), with surplus copies of the bonus CD being sold directly to members of the public several months after subscribers received their free copy. For reasons unknown, they decided not to do this for The Five Companions and hence this release is not listed on this site (i.e. I only list items that have been on sale directly to the public).
The TARDIS brings the Doctor and Mary Shelley to the continent of Zelonia, on the frontier world Draxine — where, many moons ago, the twin citystates of Garrak and Stronghaven bore testament to mankind’s colonial spirit.
That was before the sinister death cult of Garrak’s President Harmon took hold — and Garrak annihilated itself utterly in an apocalyptic explosion. Before the bones of Garrak’s dead came back to life, and its skeletal citizens began marching, marching, marching on Stronghaven itself.
But what do they want, this army of death? And can anything stop them? In search of answers, the Doctor and Mary must journey into the dead heart of a dead city to face a terrifying adversary, whose ambitions transcend the stuff of life itself.
