Reborn in a hospital morgue, stranded aboard a crashing air ship, lost in a universe without time and forced to wage a final bitter war against his greatest enemies...
For a Doctor who only made one TV appearance in the 1996 TV movie, the Eighth Doctor has lead a long and eventful life on audio. Since 2001, Big Finish have produced more than sixty audio plays featuring Paul McGann giving the character a life beyond the small screen.
Two dedicated Doctor Who fans set out to listen to each of these audio plays, one episode a day every day, in an attempt to experience a true ‘Eighth Doctor Era’ of Doctor Who. Along the way they discover the highs and lows of the series, from 2001’s Storm Warning through to 2011’s To The Death, via short series of Sixth Doctor plays featuring the ongoing companion Charley Pollard.
Written by Will Brooks (Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space) and Nick Mellish (Nick’s Little Bit of Net), sometimes examining the literary origins of the Eighth Doctor’s adventures, sometimes commenting on the strength of a story, and sometimes merely praising (or otherwise) a particular cast member, Memoirs of an Edwardian Adventurer is the definitive account of two fan’s experience of one of the most innovative and unique periods in Doctor Who history.
Includes a foreword by Conrad Westmaas; audio companion C’rizz.
