Publisher's summary

Susan Jameson reads a brand new original adventure for the Fourth Doctor, Mrs Wibbsey and Mike Yates

When the Doctor returns to Nest Cottage, in the village of Hexford, England, he discovers strange things afoot in the local woods. Together with the redoubtable Mrs Wibbsey he discovers the local postmistress in an almost desiccated state, and witnesses sinister behaviour at the local mini-mart.

The old team investigate a new shop that has opened in the village, run by the glamorously beguiling Camilla Cookson. Soon they realise that a secret society has formed in Hexford under their very noses. But what role has Mrs Wibbsey herself unwittingly played in all of this? It may be time for a few confessions to be heard.

Recruiting Mike Yates, Tish Madoc and Deirdre Whatsit to the cause, the Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey set out to penetrate the winged coven - but what they discover at its heart is the greatest horror of all.

Read by Susan Jameson, this brand new adventure by Paul Magrs is set after the events of The Nest Cottage Chronicles and The Thing From The Sea.

2019 Sequel to the Nest Cottage Chronicles

Back in "Demon Quest", the second chapter in the Nest Cottage Chronicles, Mrs Wibbsey accidentally sold parts of the Tardis - some rather important parts - at a local swap meet. After the problems that caused, one would think she'd know to leave The Doctor's toys down in the basement where they belong. I'd like to avoid too many spoilers, but for a general description of the plot for "The Winged Coven": The Doctor shouldn't be leaving advanced technology lying about where the villagers can get hold of it, as this might lead to complications like the odd hostile alien invasion or two. Additionally, anything with the properties of mind control (or mind transference) should be kept under lock-and-key and not left over at Mike Yates' house.

"The Winged Coven" is narrated by Susan Jameson, who plays the role of Mrs Wibbsey. As of April 2019 this is the latest release in the "Nest Cottage" series of stories. The original 2009-2011 releases were "Hornet's Nest", "Demon Quest", and "Serpent Crest" (collected in The Nest Cottage Chronicles) and the first sequel "The Thing From the Sea" was released in March 2018. This title is about an hour and fifteen minutes (ish) and is certainly worth the purchase. I would suggest listening to the "Nest Cottage" stories first to be familiar with the characters and backstory, such as how Mrs Wibbsey has been taken over/possessed so many times that by now she's immune to that sort of thing..

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
