Inspired by a series of Facebook posts that I saw, we are going to run through an alphabetical series of Doctor Who-related themes. Today we continue this with the letter H…

Nekromanteia was the 41st entry in Big Finish’s “Main Range” or “Monthly Range” of Doctor Who audios (released back in 2003), featuring Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor, Nicola Bryant as Peri, and Caroline Morris as audio-only companion Erimem.

Doctor Who has long been my favorite show, but in recent years rewatchings of old episodes have been few and far between. But lately I decided to spend both some of my birthday and Christmas spending money on some of these adventures, and enjoy them with one or two of my nerdier daughters.

After a gap of many moons, I’m finally in possession of another run of Big Finish’s “Monthly Adventures” range of Doctor Who stories. In particular, I’ve just enjoyed The Church and the Crown, a Fifth Doctor story starring Peter Davison, and featuring Nicola Bryant as Peri and Caroline Morris as original-to-audio companion Erimem. The story was released back in November 2002, so I’m only about 19 years behind the times, but better late then never I guess.

I used to be more into Star Trek and Doctor Who fan film projects than I am now, but a little while ago I wrote about watching my first episode of Star Trek Continues, a high-production value recreation of the original Star Trek series, starring and co-created by Vic Mignogna. That one guest starred Doctor Who alum Colin Baker as an alien leader. That led me to eventually watching the series’ two part-finale, To Boldly Go, which features Baker’s co-star on Doctor Who, Nicola Bryant.

Doctor Who has been on (and off) the air since 1963, with a myriad of adventures showing the Doctor and his companions traveling to endless corners of the universe.

And we arrive, finally, at my story about meeting a Doctor Who actor at a convention (unless one counts seeing John Barrowman signing autographs at a distance at a Supanova event in Australia), and that is none other than the final classic-era co-star, Sophie Aldred, well-known on the show as playing the companion Ace.

In the wake of the whole COVID-19 pandemic, Big Finish–most famous for their original licensed Doctor Who audios–began to release a variety of projects for free on a weekly basis. Some of these are “proper” Doctor Who adventures, some are licensed from other sources, and others are completely original. I have been taking advantage of these, as I’ve written about here and elsewhere. This time around we’re looking at a one-part story that was part of a collection of Sixth Doctor stories called Breaking Bubbles and Other Stories. This one of the Other Stories, it seems.

As I’ve mentioned a few times now, I attended a Doctor Who convention that I attended in Philadelphia, around October 1985. This was sometime after Colin Baker’s first full season as the Doctor, while we were the shocking-for-the-time 18 month hiatus for the program. Colin Baker was at the convention, making him as I’ve mentioned the first and only “current” Doctor that I ever met at a convention. Along with him was Nicola Bryant, who was the “current” companion.
