Fifth Doctor and Nyssa Set for Big Finish’s Masquerade

If you’ve found yourself with a jonesing for some sweet, sweet Peter Davison action, I have some fantastic news for you!

As part of their Doctor Who main range, Big Finish is set to release a new Fifth Doctor adventure, Masquerade, this June. Masquerade finds the Doctor and Nyssa (Sarah Sutton) in France:

“France, the year 1770: by special invitation, the famous ‘Doctor’, friend of Voltaire, arrives at the lonely estate of the lovely Marquise de Rimdelle – once a hostess to the highest of high society, now isolated by the strange, pernicious mist that lingers round the countryside.

But there’s more in that fog than mere vapour, confesses the Marquise’s strange niece to the Doctor’s ward, Nyssa. She senses some uncanny machine circling the fringes of the estate, in the space between the shadows. Watching. Always watching. She’s given it a name: ‘The Steamroller Man’.”

Big Finish has also released an excellent trailer, giving us a small taste of what’s to come in a couple of months. The trailer can be heard here. Masquerade is available for preorder now.

What say you, Kasterborites? Are you down for a Masquerade?

“That’s bacon! Are you trying to poison me?” And from that line on, I’ve been unable to stop watching, reading, musing about the Doctor. As a recent transplant to the Whoniverse, I’ve been trying to soak up as much Who-related knowledge as possible. That journey has taken me from the Tenth Planet to the Fields of Trenzalore and gently set me at the edge of my seat for what’s next. It’s an honor to be here and I plan to bring a unique perspective. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey alongside me.
