The Companion Chronicles
The Dying Light The Sleeping City
Luna Romana was the seventy-fifth release in the Companion Chronicles audio range. It was the seventh story of season 8. Uniquely, it featured both televised incarnations of Romana, as well as a third, who previously appeared only in the Gallifrey audio series. It is the only example of a "multi-Romana story". It was the final third story of a Companion Chronicles trilogy released by Big Finish Productions in November 2013January 2014 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the show. This trilogy was centered around the character of Quadrigger Stoyn introduced in The Beginning and then appearing in The Dying Light.

Publisher's summary Edit

The search for the final segment of the Key to Time takes the Doctor and the First Romana to Ancient Rome. The Time Lady is appalled when her companion prefers to watch the latest Plautus comedy rather than complete their mission, and is even less delighted to meet the playwright himself.

But all is not what it seems, either onstage or behind the scenes...

In the far, far future, the Second Romana is destined to have her own encounter with a legacy of Rome, but Stoyn has been waiting. And his actions will set Romana on a collision course with her own past.

Quadrigger Stoyn wants his final revenge on the Doctor, and only Romana stands in his way.

Both of her.

Notes Edit

  • This story was recorded on 18 September and 4 October 2012.
  • Although Juliet Landau performs the voice of Romana I, archival recordings of Mary Tamm taken from her Big Finish appearances are also featured.
  • When discussing the events observed in Paris by Stoyn, the Doctor makes a meta-reference, asking him if he had no choice to watch one channel because of a strike; in real life, the broadcast of City of Death was positively impacted by the fact that ITV was off the air due to a strike, leaving only BBC on the air, resulting in the serial receiving the series' highest ratings in it history.
  • As the version of Romana III featured in AUDIO: Renaissance and Ascension was revealed to have been a projection generated by the Matrix, this story marks the first time Juliet Landau is truly playing Romana III..
  • At one point during the story, the Doctor pops up from behind the sofa and quips, "Sometimes you get the best view from here." This is a reference to the habit children have of hiding behind the sofa while watching Doctor Who during a particularly scary part.
