The Burning Prince was the first story in a 2012 multi-Doctor trilogy, beginning with the Fifth Doctor and ending with the Seventh Doctor. It was highly unusual for a performed Fifth Doctor story because it had no regular companion.

Publisher's summary Edit

The Drashani Empire — a galaxy-spanning civilisation, the glory of Rome set among the stars. But for decades now, the Royal Houses of Gadarel and Sorsha have been at war, each claiming the Imperial throne.

The wedding of Prince Kylo and Princess Aliona was meant to change all that — a blessed union between the Houses, a new hope for the Empire. Until Aliona's wedding galley crash-landed on the planet Sharnax — and all contact was lost.

The TARDIS lands aboard the ship carrying the fiery Kylo in search of his lost princess — but with a sabre-toothed monster roaming its corridors, the Doctor soon discovers he's not the only alien presence aboard.

References Edit

  • The Doctor is only aware of the Drashani Empire through its reputation as a galaxy-spanning civilisation which rivals the Earth Empire. He describes it as "the glory of Rome set amongst the stars."

Notes Edit

  • The first episode was released as a podcast.
  • This is the first Fifth Doctor audio drama released in the main range not to feature Nyssa since The Chaos Pool in March 2009.
  • While a few other performed Fifth Doctor stories suggested that he was travelling alone — perhaps most prominently The Gathering — few, save perhaps Cuddlesome, actually involved no regular companions at all.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 19 and 20 March 2012.
