Release date: December 2001
Director: Gary Russell
Producers: Jason Haigh-Ellery, Jacqueline Rayner, Gary Russell
Production Code: 7C/A
When the evil Skelloids launch an attack upon the
seventeen worlds of the Generios system, its peace-loving
inhabitants face total destruction.
So it's fortunate that the famous traveller in time and space
known only as the Doctor is in the area, and doubly lucky
that, with the help of his pretty young assistant,
Sally-Anne, he manages to defeat the deadly creatures and
save the day.
But now it looks as though the Doctor's luck has run out.
Who is the mysterious, curly-haired stranger who insists on
causing trouble? What role does the feisty redhead Melanie
play in his scheme? And what have they to do with the
sinister alien cylinder approaching Generios?
One thing is certain: for the Doctor and Sally-Anne, there's
deadly danger ahead...
A number of bits of continuity from Business Unusual, including
her year of origin as 1989, and the fact she was working in Brighton
at the time. She can fly the TARDIS. As well as being in the Girl
Guides, she and her family would put on Christmas show for pensioners
at the Pease Pottage church hall. The house she describes in her
story (a large one seven miles from town) isn't the same as the one
in Business Unusual (they moved?)
A comedy in the tradition of Curse of Fatal Death. Some hilarious
takes on the audio adventures and Doctor Who in general. As is usual for
the audios, Mel gets more of a role than she tended to in the TV series,
competing with Sally-Anne for being companion-like, and fending off the
advances of Banto...
