Vortex Ice was the first of two stories comprising the two hundred and twenty-fifth release of Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Jonathan Morris and featured Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor and Lisa Greenwood as Flip Jackson.
Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
In search of "exotic particles", the Doctor and Flip arrive 700 feet underground, in a mine in Northern Mexico – only to run into a scientific expedition. Among their number, an exobiologist. They're all on the hunt for alien life! Deep underground, the team finally uncovers a cave of vast crystals – like ice, despite the heat. And inside the crystal: something frozen. Something trapped in time. If only it were something simple, like a monster. But it's far, far worse than that.
