The Doctor meets Mr. Frid

If the cover art for "The Victorian Age" — the upcoming TORCHWOOD audio drama from Big Finish — didn't inspire visions of Collinsport in your head, then allow me to draw your attention to "Doctor Who: The Labyrinth of Buda Castle."

Released earlier this month, the story sees the fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and Romana (Lalla Ward) spelunking in the caves of Budapest. Vampires are involved, as is a character named "Zoltan Frid." While I haven't had the opportunity to listen to this episode yet, I'm betting the name "Frid" is a red flag. Or a red herring. It's certainly a red something.

Here's the official summary:

The Doctor and Romana land in Budapest, intent on enjoying another holiday, but shortly after landing they find themselves too late to save the life of a man who has seemingly been attacked by a vampire. As they learn that this is the latest in a series of violent attacks, it becomes clear that they have stumbled onto something that needs investigating. Aided by a vampire hunter who is searching for Dracula, they look into the nearby Buda caves, currently being used for storage by the military - and find that the soldiers have problems of their own. Stalked through the tunnels by a monster, and up against an ancient evil, the race is on to escape alive  and foil the dastardly schemes of the maniacal Zoltan Frid.
