Pretty Lies was the first audio story in the anthology Casualties of War, produced by Big Finish Productions. It was written by Guy Adams and featured John Hurt as the War Doctor, Jacqueline Pearce as Cardinal Ollistra and Joseph Kloska as Schandel.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Trapped and desperate, light years from their armies at the heart of the Time War, the War Doctor and Cardinal Ollistra discover that wherever they go, destruction follows. A war reporter named Schandel may provide the key to their escape, but it is often said that the first casualty of war is the truth. When the choice between grim reality and a hero’s story means life or death, will the Doctor allow Schandel to print the legend?
