Official trailer

The Hollows of Time was the fourth Lost Story of Season 23 to be developed into an audio play. It starred Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant as the Sixth Doctor and Peri Brown.

Publisher's summary Edit

The Doctor and Peri have been on holiday, visiting old friend Reverend Foxwell in the sleepy English village of Hollowdean. But why are their memories so hazy?

Piecing together events they recall a mysterious chauffeur, who is not what he seems, and Foxwell's experiments that could alter the nature of reality. Huge sand creatures have been sighted on the dunes, and many of the locals are devoted to a leader known as "Professor Stream".

But who is Stream? And what lies within the Hollows of Time?

The Doctor will discover that not every question has a definitive answer...

Notes Edit

The Hallows of Time Big Finish Story Art

Interior CD Sleeve illustration of the events of the story.

  • The Hollows of Time was an unproduced serial written by Christopher H. Bidmead intended to feature the Sixth Doctor and Peri Brown. It was cancelled to make way for The Trial of a Time Lord.
  • This story marks the first appearance of the Tractators in an audio story, as well as their first appearance in Doctor Who in any medium since their introduction in Frontios, twenty-six years earlier.
  • In the original version of the script, Professor Stream would have been revealed to be the Master in disguise ("Stream" being an anagram for "Master"), a plot device previously used in The Keeper of Traken, Castrovalva, Time-Flight and The King's Demons. While this was changed, David Garfield's portrayed Stream with a voice similar to Anthony Ainley's, further suggesting that he was in fact The Master.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 30 and 31 March 2009.
