The Companion Chronicles
The Suffering Shadow of the Past

The Emperor of Eternity was a March 2010 entry in The Companion Chronicles series by Big Finish Productions, starring Frazer Hines and Deborah Watling. Although it was not the first time either actor had been employed by Big Finish, it was the first time that the two had appeared together as their original Doctor Who characters, Jamie McCrimmon and Victoria Waterfield, in an original audio drama. It was also the first time that they had done so since Fury from the Deep in 1968.

Publisher's summary Edit

After colliding with a meteor in space, the TARDIS is forced to make an emergency landing on Earth. The place is China around 200 BC, during the reign of the first emperor, Qin.

When the Doctor is taken away to the imperial city, it's up to Victoria and Jamie to save him. Their friend is now a prisoner of Qin, who intends to extract the secret of eternal life, so that he may rule the world forever...

Notes Edit

  • The Doctor, Jamie and Victoria arrive in China shortly after a large meteor has fallen to Earth where they find that an entire village has been massacred at the order of Emperor Qin Shi Huang. This is based on a real event which occurred in 211 BC. A large meteor is said to have fallen in Dongjun in the lower reaches of the Yellow River. An unknown person inscribed the words, "The First Emperor will die and his land will be divided." When the Emperor heard of this, he sent an imperial secretary to investigate this prophecy. No one would confess to doing so and, as a consequence, all the people who lived nearby were put to death.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 10 November 2009.
