Episode 55: Vampire Science

After a month-long hiatus, we have returned with a discussion of Jonathan Blum and Kate Orman's Vampire Science, the second in the BBC series featuring the Eighth Doctor and Sam.  From the back cover:

In the days when the Time Lords were young, their war with the Vampires cost trillions of lives on countless worlds.  Now the Vampires have been sighted again, in San Francisco.

Some want to coexist with humans, using genetic engineering in a macabre experiment to find a new source of blood.  But some would rather go out in a blaze of glory - and UNIT's attempts to contain them could provoke another devestating war.

The Doctor strikes a dangerous bargain, but even he might not be able to keep the city from getting caught in the crossfire.  While he finds himself caught in a web of old feuds and high-tech scheme, his new companion Sam finds out just how deadly traveling with the Doctor can be.

Kate Orman wrote the Virgin New Adventure The Room with No Doors (for which her co-author and future husband Jonathan Blum was a contributor), and that's a tough act to follow based on our review.

Without further ado, sit back, relax, pour yourself a glass of synthetic blood, and listen in as we talk about Vampire Science.
