India Fisher narrates a creepy Doctor Who story set in a war memorial…

She may not know much about art… in fact, Charley Pollard isn’t entirely sure what she likes. But it probably isn’t the creepy art installation the Doctor wants to visit. 

It only takes a few good people in the right places to end a war. Visitors come from all over the galaxy to view The Ten Thousand, to remind themselves of that.” 

In Doctor Who – Short Trips: Hall of the Ten Thousand, India Fisher narrates an Eighth Doctor adventure from first-time Big Finish writer Jaine Fenn which takes as its influence the story of the terracotta warriors of Xi’an.

The Ten Thousand represent everything the Doctor admires. Ingenuity, creativity and triumph of peace over war. So, naturally he’s taken Charley to see them. 
 
However, their arrival isn’t the quite the gallery visit they expected. Why is everything slowly falling apart? Why is the artist refusing to see them?   
 
But for Charley, there’s a question that’s far more urgent. Did that statue just move? 

Producer Alfie Shaw said: “It was such a delight to work with India Fisher on this story. She, along with her character Charley, are firm fan-favourites, and you can easily see (and hear!) why. With India behind the mic and Lisa Bowerman directing, the day flew past as they both brought this wonderful tale to life.” 

Author Jaine Fenn added: “I was delighted to get a chance to write for Doctor Who, if a little daunted. In Hall of the Ten Thousand the Doctor comes to see that a glorious human achievement is anything but glorious, and that was a hard revelation to manage, especially as the truth is so dark. On a lighter note, although the story is set in the future, I did enjoy riffing off a fascinating historical phenomenon.”
