Sad about not getting to watch a brand new episode of Doctor Who this Christmas day? Well, you can listen to a special Doctor Who Velocity audio adventure instead! Doctor Who Velocity will be releasing a special audio drama for free on Christmas Eve. Club Quatermass is sure to be a treat. Maybe it will be a happy Who-mas after all.
Years after an experimental space rocket crashes into a Florida industrial estate, the Doctor and her companion Lloyd, investigate a strange phenomenon at ‘Club Quatermass’. The rundown venue holds a dark secret that could threaten all local entertainment throughout the universe.
This drama is based on the classic science fiction program from the 1950s The Quatermass Experiment. The drama lasts only 10 minutes, making it easy to take some time out of your holiday to listen. One could even listen on the go during their Christmas walk.
This story follows from last year’s Doctor Who Velocity Christmas episode. As such, fans might want to check that out as well.
Krystal Moore returns for her fifth adventure as the Doctor. Paycen McGahey plays desperate nightclub promoter PJ McG. Chris Phillips returns as working-class antiques dealer and local hero DJ Lloyd. Jen Potcher steps into the roll of travelling dancer Destiny.
This original story was written by director Chris Phillips, and is based on a real-life feud between two music promoters.
“I was looking for a fresh element that would bring Quatermass into 2018, and after seeing my friends in the local music scene arguing about a dysfunctional local venue it struck me – what if someone built a nightclub on the site of the Quatermass disaster? From there it brought out a lot comedy and tragedy at the same time.” — Chris Phillips
