The Mists of Time was an audio drama in Big Finish Productions' The Companion Chronicles series. It was initially a digital download exclusively offered to readers of Doctor Who Magazine Issue 411, but was later released as part of the The Companion Chronicles: The Specials box set.

Publisher's summary Edit

Many years ago, when she was travelling with the Doctor, Jo Grant visited Zayin Eight. Now, suddenly and inexplicably, she is back on that ravaged planet, and reunited with a human called Newton Calder. What happened to the missing members of Calder's team? What is the secret of the vast ruined city? The answers will lie in the dark and distant past of the Time Lords themselves...

References Edit

  • Newton Calder has been on Zayin Eight for 296 days by the time of Jo's arrival.
  • The Zayin system is located in the Argo Navis Cluster, 80 years from Earth.
  • Calder, Anyetta, Alein and Tomis are affiliated with the Space Archaeology Group (SAG). They are exploring the remnants of an ancient civilisation which were detected by a passing probe.
  • Jo's grandfather, who smoked a pipe, always used to spoil her when she was a child. He often bought her ice cream behind her parents' backs, observing, "What's the harm? Life's too short." He died in 1958 when his granddaughter was seven years old.
  • After Jo wishes that they were present, apparitions of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and Sgt. Benton come to her aid.

Notes Edit

  • The DWM download was considered a promotion for the Big Finish line, so the file began with an introduction by Nicholas Briggs giving a brief history of the company's audio releases.
  • Part One of this story ends with a literal cliffhanger.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 18 and 30 December 2008.
