Doctor Who Quicksilver was released in December 2016 and is the third instalment of Big Finish’s main range sixth Doctor trilogy of 2016 – and another chance for me to work with Colin Baker. You can get Doctor Who: Quicksilver from Big Finish’s website.
The story is an homage to the Third Man (check out the cover!) and was written by Matt Fitton. It also seems Lisa Greenwood (Flip) rejoining the TARDIS crew alongside Miranda Raison (Constance).
It’s the telegram Constance never wanted to read:
DEEPLY REGRET TO INFORM YOU LT-CMDR H CLARKE LOST IN ACTION. CLASSIFIED OPERATIONS.
Those classified operations concerned a top-secret military project code-named ‘Quicksilver’. A project based in Vienna. A project with alien connections.
But bombed-out Vienna is not what it was before the war – with its Strauss music, its glamour and easy charm. It’s not the time nor the place for a happy reunion. As Constance Clarke is about to discover…
And as the Doctor is about to discover, too!
