Big Finish Doctor Who audio stories
Castle of Fear Plague of the Daleks

The Eternal Summer was the one hundred and twenty-eighth monthly Doctor Who audio story produced by Big Finish Productions. It was the second story in a trilogy centring around the fictional town of Stockbridge. This audio also marked the audio debut of Maxwell Edison, now played by Mark Williams. Edison, like the village of Stockbridge, was created in Doctor Who Magazine comic stories.

Publisher's summary Edit

It's been a long, hot summer in Stockbridge. Longer than the villagers can remember. Summer's lease is never-ending — and all thanks to the Lord and Lady of the Manor!

One man alone knows that something's wrong: Maxwell Edison, Stockbridge's unofficial ambassador to the universe. Or "flying saucer nut", as the locals have it. He'll need help proving it: from the local postmistress Miss Nyssa, perhaps; or the village Doctor, the fellow that's been living at the Green Dragon Inn these last 30 years.

They'd better hope that autumn never comes to Stockbridge. When autumn comes, the world is doomed...
