NEW TO WHO - VENGEANCE ON VAROS

Dan and Steven have stalled in Sydney, and it is only on the planet Varos that they can find his precious Zeiton-7 ore they need to continue their podcasting through time and space.

Arriving on the planet, Dan and Steven meet the rebel Todd Beilby and incur the wrath of Richard Stone, representatives of the most excellent Doctor Who podcast, Flight Through Entirety.

The hunt is on for these rebel friends. And as they are pursued through the corridors of the deadly Punishment Dome, Dan, Steven, Richard and Todd discover that the people of Varos have some very disturbing ideas of entertainment ...

The second story of the troubled Season 22, VENGEANCE ON VAROS is arguably the most indicative story of the Colin Baker entire era.  It's a dark story with strong dystopian overtones echoic of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.  It is famous or introducing one of the most memorable monsters of the decade in Sil, played so wonderfully by Nabil Shaban.

Join Dan and Steven and special guests Todd and Richard from our favourite Doctor Who podcast, Flight Through Entirety, for a story that underscores some of the best of Colin Baker as the Doctor, and the wonderful Nicola Bryant in her only full season as Peri Brown. 

The cover of the original imprint of the 1988 Target novelisation for VENGEANCE ON VAROS is by David McAllister.  It is written by Philip Martin and is based on his original 1984 script.
