Doctor Who Hornets' Nest 3 - The Circus of Doom

The Circus of Doom is the third story in the Hornets' Nest arc, a series of five audio dramas featuring Tom Baker as Fourth Doctor alongside Richard Franklin as Mike Yates.

Publisher's summary Edit

The circus has come to town - and so has the Doctor! Watching the parade pass by in 1832, he finds the people of Blandford strangely drawn towards the garish big top. He knows something is terribly wrong. The only thing to do is pay a visit. Meanwhile Adam Farrow finds his sister caught up with the circus and its sinister ringmaster. What is behind Antonio's almost hypnotic power, and how is it connected with an event in the Doctor's future? Seized by clowns and forced into the centre of the ring, the Doctor encounters the fiercest of all circus acts. Yet something much more terrifying lurks in the wings - and the sound it makes is horribly familiar. Lives will be lost before the circus moves on - and the Doctor will face his own doom on the high wire.

Plot Edit

Tracking down the Hornets, the Doctor finds himself in 1832, in a small town with a dark secret. A circus has come to town... only it's not the happy kind. This "Circus of Delights" is run by a man under the influence of the Hornets! The vile plot is to kill the entire town... and then move on to a bigger target... The Doctor must stop this act at once!
