(Hmm... "The Early Years" was the title of the B7 audio series chronicling adventures of the characters before "Blake's 7". Could it be something similar? I gather "Return of the Rocket Men" is partly set in Steven's past, and of course Sara Kingdom had lots of adventures with Daleks and whatnot. Certainly more mileage than some of the other companions for prequel adventures - marvel! as Perpugilliam Brown looks at plants! thrill! to the sounds of Victoria Waterfield running her father's household!)
Peter Purves and Jean Marsh did a panel on stage at a convention together, and said it. They also said they'd be doing it together, so it seems more likely it'll be original stories done in the format of the First Doctor Lost Stories (meaning third-person Companion Chronicles that are 2 or 3 hours long).
It's nice to see Jean Marsh is returning to work though, her stroke a year and a half ago was really quite sad as she's someone I like from a number of non-Doctor Who things as well.
