Doctor Who – The Companion Chronicles

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Companion Chronicles is an ongoing series of stories detailing adventures usually featuring the Doctor, as told by various former companions of his, with only one further voice actor taking part in the narration. It began in 2007 as a mini-series of four stories about adventures of the first four Doctors (none of whom appear in regular Big Finish audio plays, as William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee died before they began and Tom Baker had declined to participate at that time[citation needed]), but its popularity ensured that it returned for a second mini-series, and then in July 2008 releases became monthly.[citation needed] The monthly series of Companion Chronicles ended in June 2014 but the range will continue with box set releases[1], these releases focusing on adventures concerning the First and Second Doctors as narrated by their surviving companions.
