London,1864 - where any gentleman befitting the title 'gentleman' belongs to a gentlemen's club: The Reform, The Athenaeum, The Carlton, The Garrick...and, of course, The Contingency. Newly established in St James', The Contingency become the most exclusive enclave in town. A refuge for men of politics, men of science, men of letters. A place to escape. A place to think. A place to be free. The first rule of the Contingency is to behave like a gentleman. The second is to pay no heed to its oddly identical servants. Or to the horror in its cellars. Or to the existence of the secret gallery on its upper floor...Rules that the Doctor, Adric, Nyssa and Tegan are all about to break. The Contingency Club reunites the 1982 Doctor Who TARDIS crew for Peter Davison's Fifth Doctor - Adric (Matthew Waterhouse), Tegan (Janet Fielding) and Nyssa (Sarah Sutton). Director Barnaby Edwards is not only an overworked director for Big Finish productions, but on top of many audiobook voice-over duties, he's also the main Dalek operator in TV's Doctor Who.
Clive Merrison's rich voice brought the longest lived radio Sherlock Holmes to life, playing the Great Detective across recordings of every single Sir Arthur Conan Doyle story. Guest star Philip Jackson will be familiar to any fans of top TV detective drama as Inspector Japp in the David Suchet Poirot dramas.
