The BBC have today announced that Merlin and Silent Witness actress Emilia Fox will be voicing a character who we only know as the “14th plotter”. In the new Adventure Game press release we also learn that not only are the Sontarans popping up in the free to download game, but their enemies the Rutans are returning too! They were last seen in the 4th Doctor story “The Horror of Fang Rock” in 1977, pictures below:
After a mid-space collision, the Doctor, Amy and Rory crash land on Earth, 1605 AD. Here they discover that a mothership belonging to the Sontaran's age-old enemy, the Rutan Host, is on Earth. The only problem – the ship is buried deep below the site upon which the House of Lords has now been built.
Meanwhile, a secret society of malcontents is plotting to overthrow the Government by planting gunpowder beneath the House of Lords. Two members of this society are exposed in our story – Robert Catesby and Guy Fawkes. The 14th plotter, hitherto undisclosed in the history books, is a shape-shifting Rutan, who, by infiltrating the plotters and controlling their plans can have her ends met – the launch path cleared for her mothership, deep below the foundations of the House of Lords.
And so the Doctor, Amy and Rory must find a way to stop the plotters, the Sontarans and the Rutans, all of whom are intent on blowing something (if not everything!) to pieces.
Doctor Who: The Gunpowder Plot will be available to download from Halloween.
