The Suffering was a February 2010 entry in The Companion Chronicles series by Big Finish Productions. It starred Peter Purves and Maureen O'Brien.

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.
