The Lost Planet

AUDIO READING BBC AUDIO RRP £10.99 (CD) RELEASED 2 MARCH

A t the end of January’s The Lost Angel, the first in a new series of original stories from BBC Audio, the Twelfth Doctor acquired two new companions (siblings Alex and Brandon Yow) and a mystery to solve: who wrote the book of instructions for binding a Weeping Angel? When we last heard from the trio, they were setting off to the sixteenth century looking for answers.

“This is actually a little side-step, really,” explains George Mann, writer of The Lost Planet, which continues the story. “What we wanted to do was pace the series. The first one was quite kinetic, and the characters and the concepts of the series were introduced. For the second story, we wanted to pause for breath and build the characters a little bit before we go on. It was the perfect opportunity to take a little detour from the main arc, and do a bit of exploration of the new companions and the Doctor. The key is the dynamic between Brandon and Alex, and actually playing with the ‘brother and sister’ thing. We see everything new through their eyes, and their shared experience. But also, we see the differences between them the typical sibling rivalries, and the banter, and stuff like that.”
