Hello everyone! 🙂
Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!
It’s Day 12 of ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2018.
“Happy Birthday Sarah Sutton!”
From that, you can probably guess what this photo memory is about. 😀
Yes! This is a photo memory taken by me on the ‘Doctor Who’ audio CD adventure I had for Christmas in 2008, featuring the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa. For Christmas 2008, I had ‘The Game’ starring Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton with William Russell, Christopher Ellison and Jonathan Pearce. Happy times!
It was around that time that I was getting into the Big Finish audio adventures of ‘Doctor Who’ with the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa and they were fast becoming my favourite TARDIS characters. I was catching up on all the audio adventures made by Big Finish to fill the gap between Seasons 19 and 20.
‘The Game’ is a six-part adventure on 2 CDs and I enjoyed listening to all six episodes back in December 2008. I recall hearing the first CD of this six-part adventure in the car and getting into the Doctor and Nyssa caught up in the world of Cray with the population’s terrifying sports game of naxy. Great stuff!
It’s hard to believe that it would be a year and two months later that I would be meeting Sarah Sutton at conventions and eventually seeing her with Peter Davison in recent years. I still regard Sarah Sutton as Nyssa to be my absolute favourite ‘Doctor Who’ companion in the series on TV and Big Finish audio.
I value Sarah’s friendship at conventions and have enjoyed seeing and hearing all her ‘Doctor Who’ adventures as Nyssa. My fan-fiction series of ‘Fifth Doctor’ stories on my blog featuring Nyssa should be proof of that. I highly recommend the audios tales of ‘Doctor Who’ with the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa.
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now!
