The Red Lady was the second story in the audio anthology Doom Coalition 1, produced by Big Finish Productions. It was written by John Dorney and featured Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor and Nicola Walker as Liv Chenka and introduced Hattie Morahan as the new companion Helen Sinclair.

Publisher's summary Edit

An anomaly in time brings the Doctor and Liv to London in the 1960s, where they meet a young lady named Helen Sinclair - desperately trying to make a name for herself in the face of sexism and prejudice.

Whilst the Doctor tried to uncover the secrets of a mysterious artefact, a far deadlier mystery awaits Liv and Helen in the collection of a recently deceased antiquarian.

Because that's where they find the Red Lady. Because if you do, you might not like what you see.

Notes Edit

  • This story was recorded at The Moat Studios.
  • The story won the 2016 Scribe Award for the best tie-in fiction in the category "Audio".[1]
  • In the behind the scenes extras, producer David Richardson cites Verity Lambert as a source of inspiration for the character of Helen Sinclair, something acknowledged in the setting of the story being 1963.
  • Although the Doctor says they've arrived at the National Museum, and specifically distinguishes it from the British Museum, he later identifies Helen as an employee of the British Museum, which is not denied by her (in fact she seems to confirm it).
