The Peterloo Massacre was the two hundred and tenth story in Big Finish's monthly range. It featured the Fifth Doctor, Tegan, and Nyssa.

Publisher's summary Edit

"They say there’ll be thousands pouring into Manchester tomorrow. From all over the county, north and south. It’ll be a piece of history. People will remember this!"

Lost in the smog of the Industrial Revolution, the TARDIS crashes four miles south of Manchester, in the grounds of Hurley Hall – a grand mansion belonging to a local factory owner, a proudly self-made man. But while Hurley dreams of growing richer still on the wealth of secret knowledge locked up in the Doctor’s time and space machine, his servants hope only for a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work. His young maid Cathy, for instance, whom Nyssa learns is looking forward to joining the working people’s march to St Peter’s Field, in the heart of the city. There’ll be speeches and banners and music. It’ll be like one big jamboree…

Or so she thinks. For the city’s establishment have called in their own private militia, to control the crowd. One of the darkest days in Manchester’s history is about to unfold – and the Doctor, Nyssa and Tegan are right in the thick of it.

Notes Edit

  • This story was recorded on 6 and 7 July 2015 at The Moat Studios.
  • The Doctor sprains his ankle, a reference to the old Doctor Who cliché that companions would frequently twist their ankles in the classic series. Here it's the Doctor who suffers this. The Eighth Doctor also sprained his ankle in Magrs's own The Scarlet Empress.

Continuity Edit

  • The TARDIS's automated repair systems will take a day or two. The Doctor's previously referred to the TARDIS knowing how to fix something if it's happened before. (PROSE: The Sands of Time)
