The Hollows of Time is a story originally written for the 23rd series of Doctor Who; however, it was cancelled along with the rest of the originally planned scripts for that series due to Doctor Who's 1985 hiatus. Big Finish Productions adapted the story into an audio play in 2010 as part of their Lost Stories series.


A small English village called Hollowdean houses the Hollows of Time.



  • The Tractators appeared in the 1984 Fifth Doctor TV story Frontios, also written by Bidmead. (He also wrote Peter Davison's first story, Castrovalva.)
  • The original version of the script would have revealed Professor Stream to be The Master, as played by Anthony Ainley. The rights to the character couldn't be obtained for the Big Finish adaptation and Ainley died in 2004. In this version of the story, the Professor Stream character is retained, but his identity is left ambiguous. "Stream" is an anagram of "master", as was the case with several of the Master's other aliases such as Sir Gilles Estram in The King's Demons.
