Publisher's summary Edit

The TARDIS materialises in England in the year 1912, a time of great social change. The Suffragette movement is lobbying for votes for women, and the skull of the so-called "missing link" has been discovered in Piltdown.

While Vicki falls victim to a strange influence, the Doctor and Steven investigate the fossilised remains. The Suffering has been unleashed. Can the travellers survive its rage?

Notes Edit

  • This audio drama was recorded on 2 and 6 October 2009.
  • Starting with this release, January Companion Chronicle releases have been two discs, a practice that came about after a misunderstanding on Nev Fountain's part on the length of Peri and the Piscon Paradox, released in January 2011, but written before The Suffering.
