StoryEdit

SynopsisEdit

The Doctor and Travis work to avoid a paradox after the TARDIS arrives in Toronto, Canada in November 1918 – inside Millie’s own history.

ContinuityEdit

  • Reference is made to Travis' abduction in The Cost of Progress.
  • The Somnivores first appeared in the 2018 liveshow at Gallifrey One, which predates the podcast. The Doctor is said to have had a past encounter with these creatures.

ProductionEdit

Unlike most audio productions, which are pre-scripted and recorded with voice actors, The Game of Rassilon plays out as a tabletop roleplaying game. The writers plot out the campaign, but the players' decisions influence the narrative.

Production NotesEdit

  • Despite being the fourth story overall, this is considered the start of the third serial - The Edge of Discovery is considered the first part of Where Angels Fear To Trek.
  • This is the first story to come with its own album artwork embedded in the MP3. The album artwork was also used by several of the team to promote the first episode on social media.
  • This is the first episode not to open with a recap since episode 1, and consequently the first episode since episode 1 where Luke Baldridge is not given a credit for additional music.
  • As with Where Angels Fear To Trek, the episode opens with a cold open. This time, however, the cold open involves a moment from Millie's past and features gameplay.
  • Two pieces of library music from Kevin MacLeod - “Our Story Begins” and “Awkward Meeting” - are used in this serial.
  • Recorded at Geeky Teas & Games in Burbank, California.
