by Eddie Robson
Part of the Doctor Who - The Fourth Doctor series
This range of two-part audio dramas stars Tom Baker reprising his most popular role as the Fourth Doctor (from 1974 - 1981) with a number of his original TV companions.
This fifth series reunites the Doctor with Romana (Lalla Ward), a fellow Time Lord for adventures across Time and Space!
The Doctor and Romana land in Budapest in 1979, intent on enjoying another holiday, but shortly after landing they find themselves too late to save the life of a man who has seemingly been attacked by a vampire.
As they learn that this is the latest in a series of violent attacks, it becomes clear that they have stumbled onto something that needs investigating.
Aided by a vampire hunter who is searching for Dracula, they look into the nearby Buda caves, currently being used for storage by the military - and find that the soldiers have problems of their own. Stalked through the tunnels by a monster, and up against an ancient evil, the race is on to escape alive - and foil the dastardly schemes of the maniacal Zoltan Frid.
The fifth series in a Big Finish range which is hugely popular with fans of the classic TV series Doctor Who.
