Excelis Dawns is a Big Finish Productions audio drama based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It is part of the Excelis trilogy which continues in Excelis Rising and Excelis Decays. The events are also connected to the Bernice Summerfield audio drama The Plague Herds of Excelis.
That terrible old reprobate and transdimensional adventuress Iris Wildthyme has gone and locked herself up in a nunnery on the savage world of Artaris.
Here she is discovered by the Fifth Doctor and the reasonably brutal warlord Grayvorn. Together -- with a peculiar nun they pick up en route -- they must travel the forests and swamps of this ghastly world in Iris’s double decker bus in order to tussle -- to the death -- with a horde of flesh-eating zombies for a mysterious and holy relic of unfathomable value and questionable pedigree.
But what is the Mother Superior’s part in all this?
