The latest release in the third series of Big Finish’s Doctor Who Early Adventures is out today as the First Doctor finds himself embroiled in The Ravelli Conspiracy.
Written by Robert Khan & Tom Salinsky and directed by Lisa Bowerman, Doctor Who – The Early Adventures: The Ravelli Conspiracy stars Maureen O’Brien and Peter Purves in a new story set in the First Doctor’s TV era.
The full synopsis reads:
When the TARDIS lands in a house in Florence, Italy in 1514, it isn’t long before the guards of Guiliano de Medici arrest Steven and Vicki. To rescue them, the Doctor has to employ the help of the house’s owner – one Niccolo Machiavelli. But can he be completely trusted?
Guiliano confesses to his brother Pope Leo X that he has angered the wealthy family of Ravelli and believes the newcomers may be part of an assassination plot. But when the Doctor arrives an already tricky situation starts to spiral out of control.
As the city rings with plot and counter-plot, betrayal and lies abound. The Doctor and his friends must use all their ingenuity if they’re not to be swept away by history.
This conspiracy is about to get complicated…
Doctor Who – The Early Adventures: The Ravelli Conspiracy is available from now on Download or CD for £10.99 and £14.99 respectively from the Big Finish site.
