Home Truths was the fifth story of the third series in The Companion Chronicles audio range. It was produced by Big Finish Productions. It was written by Simon Guerrier. It featured Jean Marsh relating two stories: one told as a matter of historical reflection, featuring Sara Kingdom, Steven Taylor and the Doctor; and the other occurring a thousand years later, featuring a policeman named Robert and an older version of Sara.

It was the first piece of performed Doctor Who to feature Sara Kingdom since the character's death in "The Destruction of Time" in January 1966. It began a trilogy later continued in The Drowned World and The Guardian of the Solar System.

Publisher's summary Edit

There's a house across the waters at Ely where an old woman tells a strange story.

About a kind of night constable called Sara Kingdom. And her friends, the Doctor and Steven. About a journey they made to a young couple's home, and the nightmarish things that were found there. About the follies of youth and selfishness. And the terrible things even the most well-meaning of us can inflict on each other.

Hear the old woman's story. Then decide her fate.

Notes Edit

  • Dialogue within the story calls into question how trustworthy the narrator actually is. Thus, it is difficult to know just how accurately the Doctor, Sara and Steven are portrayed.
  • This story has some commonality with both the comic story Funhouse and the audio story The Chimes of Midnight in that the key antagonist is an intelligent house.
  • This is an unusual Companion Chronicle in that the returning actor from Doctor Who portrays the nominal villain of the piece.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 8 September 2008 at The Moat Studios.
  • This story is set between episodes seven and eight of The Daleks' Master Plan.
  • This story is told from Sara's perspective.
