The Churchill Years - Volume 2 (Audio)
Winston Churchill first encountered the Doctor on TV in Victory of the Daleks, the two men clearly old friends who had shared past adventures - now Big Finish get to show those moments! Young Winston by Paul Morris. London, 1899. After spending time in warzones abroad, Winston Churchill considers a Parliamentary career. But a memento from his visit to Cuba, four years earlier, returns to haunt him. Across the city, the Great Detective has a mysterious caller, all the way from Havana. As ruthless mercenaries wield alien powers, young Winston and Madame Vastra learn they have a mutual friend - an eccentric young man, sporting a bowtie. Human Conflict by Iain McLaughlin 1941. The Prime Minister has much on his mind as London reels from the Blitz. When a daring mission to discover Nazi secrets bears unexpected results, Churchill heads north to retrieve technology that could win the war. But an old ally is set against his intent. Weary from his own people's conflict, the Doctor knows that some weapons should never enter the field of human conflict. I Was Churchill's Double by Alan Barnes. Alexandra Palace, 1942. Strange television signals show a paranoid Churchill urging on the resistance in German-occupied Britain. A man in a battered leather jacket makes a guest appearance. The broadcasts come from another world, one where the country is now part of the Kaiser's Empire. Of course, the Doctor is involved, and while Churchill claims to understand the notion of `alternative histories', he never expected to be part of one. Churchill Victorious by Robert Khan & Tom Salinsky. VE Day, 1945. The war is over. The PM has seen the crowds, and made his speech. Now he wishes to soak up the atmosphere, moving incognito among his fellow countrymen. But an alien interloper lurks in a backstreet tavern, and `William Churchyard' must lead a few plucky Londoners into one more fight. The Doctor is in trouble, and at the time of his greatest victory, Churchill also faces his greatest danger. Ian McNeice reprises his Churchill role from TV's Doctor Who, but he's also very familiar from roles in such shows as Doc Martin, Children of Dune, and Stay Lucky. Neve McInosh plays the rehabilitated Silurian warrior Madame Vastra, as seen opposite Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi in Doctor Who on TV.
