"Shoreditch, London, 1963. The Beatles have beaten John Smith and the Common Men to No. 1. Satellites are being launched into outer space whilst on Earth a master thief is stealing some highly specialised equipment. In the streets and bombsites around Totter's Lane, the normally placid teenagers of Coal Hill are running riot: searching out the different and hunting down the alien. Schoolgirl Susan Foreman just wants an easy life for herself and her grandfather, the mysterious Doctor. She wants to be liked and accepted by Cedric and all the other pupils at Coal Hill School. But Susan has been inadvertently drawing attention to herself. The hunt is on - and Susan and her grandfather are the quarry."
To celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, AudioGO are publishing a brand new series called Destiny of the Doctor. Between January and November, eleven brand new audio stories will be published, each one involving a different incarnation of the Doctor.
The first story – Hunters of Earth (Destiny of the Doctor 1) by Nigel Robinson – features the First Doctor and his granddaughter Susan, prior to where the TV series begins. It’s performed by Carole Ann Ford (Susan) and Tam Williams, with sound design by Simon Hunt.
Performers for the stories will be announced in the coming months, with some very familiar Doctor Who names expected to be in the line-up. The series is produced for AudioGO by Big Finish Productions.
