Big Finish’s The Fourth Doctor Adventures continue this month with a lovely trip to Budapest… complete with vampires!
The second release of the range’s fifth series stars Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor and Lalla Ward as Romana, getting into the Season 17 vibe. But there’s no such thing as vampires, right?
The Doctor and Romana land in Budapest, intent on enjoying another holiday, but shortly after landing they find themselves too late to save the life of a man who has seemingly been attacked by a vampire. As they learn that this is the latest in a series of violent attacks, it becomes clear that they have stumbled onto something that needs investigating.
Aided by a vampire hunter who is searching for Dracula, they look into the nearby Buda caves, currently being used for storage by the military – and find that the soldiers have problems of their own.
Stalked through the tunnels by a monster, and up against an ancient evil, the race is on to escape alive – and foil the dastardly schemes of the maniacal Zoltan Frid.
Actually, with State of Decay in their future, maybe vampires do exist…
Written by Eddie Robson, and directed by Nick Briggs, The Labyrinth of Buda Castle also stars Kate Bracken (Celia Soames), Mark Bonnar (Zoltán Frid), Peter Barrett (Guard-Major Priskin), John Dorney (Ensign Kanta), and Anjella Mackintosh (Anita Kereki).
The Labyrinth of Buda Castle is out now, priced £10.99 for a CD or £8.99 for a downloadable copy, from Big Finish.
