The Fifth Doctor’s companion Erimem features in three new audio stories from BBV Productions
BBV are expanding their catalogue of audio adventures set in the Doctor Who universe with a new range of audio adaptations featuring the popular Fifth Doctor companion Erimem. Sarah-Jane Wareham performs the stories as Erimem’s best friend and travelling companion, Andy Hansen.
Erimem is an ancient Egyptian Pharoah, and first appeared in the Big Finish story The Eye of the Scorpion. Travelling with the Fifth Doctor and Peri, she went on to have more adventures released between 2001 and 2008. Ultimately she left the TARDIS in The Bride of Peladon to become queen of Peladon. These new audios adapt the series of novels set sometime after her travels with the Doctor. Erimem has since become a time traveller in her own right. Now based out of present day London, she and her companions make voyages to the past and future, with danger never far away.
The three stories included are
The Beast of Stalingrad
A meeting with an elderly woman surprises Erimem by reminding her of a meeting in Russia, long ago. As she looks at her timeline, evidence that she was in Stalingrad in 1942 intrigues Erimem. Against the advice of her friends, Erimem travels back through time to discover what happened in the Nazi besieged city during the war. With German forces relentlessly bombarding the city, the people are freezing and starving. Worse, there are stories of a demon or a beast, stalking the ruined streets of Stalingrad, devouring anyone it meets. When Erimem arrives she finds a city under attack both from the invading German armies and from a dark force in the shadows.
In 2062, the friends arrive on a space station in Earth orbit as it attempts recovery of a deep space probe. The station successfully rescues the probe’s crew. But very soon it is the space station crew that needs rescue. Unfortunately that would certainly mean the end of human life on Earth…
A trip to the future for Erimem and her friends coincides with a brutal, unstoppable attack on the planet. Humanity abandons its homeworld, but is there anywhere for the desperate refugees to go? The last remaining Earth warship offers some sense of hope but soon Erimem and her friends discover that hope may be the bringer of the end of humanity…
