Publisher's summary Edit

No one lives to old age in the village. When their Time is come, they are taken and never seen again. That is The Way. And, should anyone try to break with the established order of things, then the fury of Herne the Hunter is unleashed...

When the TARDIS materialises near a castle in this mediaeval society, the Doctor and Peri befriend Gurth, a terrified youth who is attempting to flee his fate. And Herne is closing in...

Why does the local baron impose the culling? What is the secret of Zeron? And who are the Sentinels of the New Dawn?

The answers lie within a cave...

References Edit

  • The Doctor believes that the Middle Ages is "an interesting period in its way, but in increasingly small doses."
  • Faster-than-light travel was invented in the mid-22nd century, rendering the Leviathans obsolete before they could be used.
  • Peri recognises the robotic hounds as a form of android.

Notes Edit

  • Unlike the other Lost Stories in the series, Leviathan was not written for Season 23. It was dropped at the last minute, having rehearsal scripts set up; the reasons for its cancellation are unknown, although David Richardson has suggested it was most likely for budgetary reasons.
  • The script for this serial was sent in after Paul Finch read about the Lost Stories series in Doctor Who Magazine. Recording for the series was already nearing completion. After reading the script, Richardson arranged to extend the originally planned seven stories, which were already at the tail end of production, to include it as an eighth.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 28 and 29 April 2009.
  • Due to the large number of characters featured each of the secondary cast had to perform several roles.
