Summary

The Man from Venus is the latest memoir from Doctor Who superfan, Mervyn Robinson. For many years Mervyn’s life has been focused on his idol, former "Doctor Who" Tom Baker. However, in 1994 he began to have romantic feelings for friend and fellow Doctor Who fan Tracy Collingston. The problem is that she’s also infatuated with Tom Baker. How can Mervyn win Tracy’s heart? And where does the mysterious Man from Venus fit into this bizarre love triangle?

At the time of our story, our fictionalised version of Tom Baker - the actor who played the fourth Doctor Who to great public and critical acclaim - is enjoying a spectacular career resurgence. With a role in a new blockbuster movie, a smash hit TV detective series, a best-selling novel and a sellout stage show, he has come to Birmingham on tour. After a publicity appearance on a local TV chat show, he is booked for a signing session at a nearby bookshop. An excruciating encounter with Mervyn and Tracy triggers an extraordinary sequence of events that has life-changing consequences for them all. Who is the enigmatic Man from Venus, and what exactly has escaped from a mysterious top secret scientific research centre? All will be revealed in this hilarious and dramatic tale.

The Man from Venus is a full cast audio comedy drama, based on Mervyn Robinson’s memoirs.

Joining David Harley as Mervyn in the cast of this extraordinary adventure is Sophie Aldred as Tracy, Emma Campbell-Jones as Vanessa, Alex Edwards as Ray, Timothy Harker as Venables, Mark Reynolds as Dr Voorhaven and introducing Stuart Grant as Tom Baker.

Who doesn’t want to be Tom Baker?

An excellent little production and sterling performances by all the cast. A great choice for my first Audible story.

Brilliant audio production, fun story and lots of humour. Definitely recommend listening, even if you’re not a Doctor Who fan.
