Frozen Time was the ninety-eighth monthly Doctor Who audio release produced by Big Finish Productions. This was the second solo Seventh Doctor story to feature him travelling without any companions. This is the first time that the Seventh Doctor and Ice Warriors have appeared in an audio together, although not the first time chronologically for the Seventh Doctor to encounter them in an audio medium — Thin Ice was the first chronological encounter between the Ice Warriors and the Seventh Doctor.

Publisher's summary Edit

In 1929, Lord Barset's expedition to the Antarctic is lost without trace. Or so it seems...

Nearly a century later, his grandson funds a much-publicised return to the icy wastes. His mission: to discover what happened to the original expedition. But what he finds instead is an enigma — a battered London police box frozen in ice millennia old.

But something else lies in wait in this awful place, something from an era before humankind set foot on the continent's cold soil. A menace frozen in time.

Until now.

The Doctor Edit

  • The Doctor mutters names of his previous companions Melanie Bush, Ace and Hex.
  • If the unspecified "millions of years," the comatose Doctor spends frozen in a block of ice are taken into account, the Doctor's age becomes entirely incalculable from this point onward, as does the age of his TARDIS.

DWM 98 Frozen

Illustrated preview by Martin Geraghty from DWM 385

  • In addition to the CD Extras there are extra tracks with just the music score (used in the audio) at the end of both CDs.
  • A preview of this story was shown in Doctor Who Magazine issue 385 with an illustration by Martin Geraghty.
  • Frozen Time acts as a partial sequel to the events of the AudioVisuals audio drama Endurance, also written and starring Briggs himself. It featured the exploits of the original 1929 Antarctic expedition, ranging from the Rochester crew's investigation of the missing expedition's base camp to the discovery and destruction of an advanced Silurian metropolis nestled beneath the ice. The obliteration of the city in the original story would seem to be the main reason Lord Barset was unable to uncover any trace of his grandfather's lost working party.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 24 and 25 April 2007 at The Moat Studios.
