The War Master (Derek Jacobi) has a new scheme up his sleeve, and this time the Doctor (Paul McGann) might not be able to stop him…
The War Master fashions the pieces needed for his devilish plan over the course of four adventures, casting his malevolent influence over a rural British community in World War II, a 19th century American freakshow and a high-tech scientific facility on an unforgiving world before the Doctor poses a final challenge… The big pull of this release lies in bringing the Doctor and the Master together during the Time War. Penned by veteran Time War writers Tim Foley (Gallifrey: Time War 1) and David Llewellyn (The War Doctor: Agents of Chaos), this 5 disc set takes the opportunity to look at the Doctor/Master relationship under a different lens and show how each of them has changed in the face of the conflict.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD, starring Kai Owen as Rhys Williams.
Posted to a container ship for a delivery job, Rhys is alarmed when the vessel breaks down in the Sargasso Sea. Then something starts killing off the crew. The plastic waste in the oceans has been repurposed – by an entity known as the Nestene Consciousness… Rhys Williams isn’t a hero. He’s the husband of Gwen, a haulage worker and an all around ordinary bloke. Placing him in a dangerous situation away from the protection of Torchwood should give him a chance to prove his mettle and this nautical-cum-ecological horror story from Christopher Cooper (Torchwood: Love Rat) should show the character in a new light.
In this 3CD set, Captain Jack (John Barrowman) dons the fabulous coat of the Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) and takes former newsreader Trinity Wells (Lachele Carl) for a spin.
A trio of untold tales starring the tenacious ex-Time Agent, with a haunting character piece set in the First World War, a contemporary thriller fuelled by the paranoia of news media, and a camp space opera that sees Jack assume control of the TARDIS…! Jack must be one of the most versatile characters in the Whoniverse, seemingly at home in almost any type of story. Having both contributed to the first volume of the series, writers James Goss (Wednesdays for Beginners) and Guy Adams (The Year After I Died) both have proven form for writing the character, and this set should show the vortex-hopping former conman at his dashing, tragic, cheeky best.
A Sixth Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Colin Baker, with Nicola Bryant as Peri.
At a scientific facility dedicated to the extraction of buried memories, a project is underway to determine the true identity of Garius Moro, an old man who may or may not be a heinous war criminal. As the project advances, Moro begins to recall something about a woman named Peri – the same Peri who has just arrived… Acclaimed writer Roland Moore (The Night Witches) is set to deliver a tale of moral complexity, touching on themes of history, punishment and the fallibility of memory.
Captain Jack (John Barrowman) and Yvonne Hartman (Tracy-Ann Oberman) lead the rebuilt Torchwood team in the face of doom, disaster and domination in this 4CD set.
A grieving mother will stop at nothing to hold Torchwood to account, a terrifying urban legend is made real, a city is gripped by panic when the drinking water runs out, and the world comes to an end during a dinner date with God… Big Finish’s ongoing Torchwood series has been bold, dramatic and blistering with a very contemporary energy since it began. This set should see the current apocalyptic story arc conclude in a remarkable fashion.
An epic 6-part audio adventure celebrating 20 years of Doctor Who at Big Finish,
charting the efforts of the Doctor and their friends to avert a catastrophe on a universal scale.
The Eighth Doctor, River Song and Benny come together on a world of ruins, the Seventh Doctor and Ace have a reunion with the Counter Measures team across two decades at once, the Third Doctor is flung forward into 21st century UNIT with Kate Stewart, Osgood and Jo Jones in attendance, the Fifth Doctor has a flash-forward encounter with his daughter Jenny, the Sixth Doctor and Charley find DI Menzies in a temporally fractured London, and finally, events in the Fourth Doctor’s past catch up with Romana and Leela in Gallifrey’s present! It’s the biggest crossover event in Doctor Who history, as scripted by the top tier of Big Finish’s writing talent: James Goss (The Last Post), John Dorney (The Assassination Games), Guy Adams (UNIT: Assembled), Matt Fitton (Technophobia) and Jonathan Morris (Protect and Survive) – and presented here as an 8CD numbered limited edition in a deluxe slipcover format!
A Sixth Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Colin Baker, with Nicola Bryant as Peri.
The Doctor and Peri arrive on Omnia, a Dalek-controlled world unlike any other. But what is the Daleks’ true interest in Omnia? Why are they ruling it at arm’s length? And on a planet where resistance is met with ruthless reprisals, will the time travellers’ aid result in mass slaughter…? The challenge with any new Dalek story is finding new angles to the Doctor’s most famous adversaries. Seasoned Doctor Who writer Andrew Smith (Full Circle, Hour of the Cybermen) rises to that challenge by focussing on characters willing to collaborate with the Daleks in the subjugation of their own people – a scenario where the fiery Sixth Doctor should excel.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD, starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness and Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones.
Jack and Ianto arrive in the idyllic community of Serenity Plaza posing as a married couple for an undercover mission, but over time they find themselves caught up in the normal, friendly, fiercely competitive world of suburbia. Have they fallen into a trap…? Written by James Moran – who scripted Sleeper for Torchwood on television – this leftfield adventure places a decidedly domestic Jack and Ianto inside Torchwood’s version of The Stepford Wives. That’s the kind of premise that goes to show just how surprising the world of Torchwood can be.
The gang are back together in this 4CD set: Neve McIntosh is the Great (Silurian) Detective Madame Vastra, Catrin Stewart is her human wife Jenny and Dan Starkey is their Sontaran butler Strax.
Three new cases for the oddball investigative trio: newfangled electric vehicles cause trouble on the streets of London, temporal anomalies haunt Greenwich observatory and there’s a rival ragtag group in town: a Silurian warrior, a decidedly dodgy Sontaran and his human boyfriend – and they’re up to no good…! It’s the spinoff that fans have been craving for close to a decade: Vastra, Jenny and Strax now star in their own uncanny adventures chock full of mystery, tomfoolery and the humorous banter that made them such memorable characters in the first place.
David Tennant and Billie Piper are accompanied by Sean Biggerstaff (Harry Potter) and Maureen Beattie (Doctor Who: Last Christmas) along with Nicholas Briggs as the Ice Warriors!
hen the Doctor and Rose arrive on Coldstar – a moon-sized frozen food facility – they soon discover that space pirates aren’t the only unwelcome guests. An army of Ice Warriors are starting to wake up, and they are prepared to fight to the death to restore their honour… The Tenth Doctor and Rose have never met the Ice Warriors…until now! Set in the aftermath of a war between the Human and Martian empires, this base-under-siege has a sense of heart and moral complexity that sets it apart from other monster-driven tales.
The Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) brings Donna (Catherine Tate) back home to visit her family: her mother Sylvia (Jacqueline King) and grandfather Wilf (Bernard Cribbins).
This week: spooky reality TV show Haunted Makeovers is in Chiswick, at the home of Doctor John Smith and his wife, Donna…! Writer James Goss (Death and the Queen) has a horror-themed DIY show call on the Noble family, with the Doctor and Donna pretending to be married. It’s a bizarre mash-up of a premise worthy of Russell T Davies himself and should see the ever-popular double act at their comedic – and dramatic – best.
David Tennant and Catherine Tate continue their adventures as the Doctor and Donna. Joining them are the likes of Rakie Ayola (No Offence) and Robert Whitelock (Marcella), with Nicholas Briggs as the Judoon.
The holiday spot of Vallarasee has changed since the Doctor last visited it. The underwater city is now encased in a dome to better cater for tourists and the water-breathing natives have to adapt, while historic sites are patrolled by Judoon. But cracks are starting to form in the underwater paradise – and when you’re underwater, cracks can lead to floods… Experienced Tenth Doctor scribe Jenny T Colgan (Time Reaver) plonks the Doctor and Donna into an action-packed disaster movie. There’s plenty going on besides the threat of flooding too, with themes of exploitative tourism and a different take on the Judoon.
David Tennant and Catherine Tate close off their latest trilogy of 10/Donna audio adventures, accompanied by Kieran Bew (Doctor Who: Oxygen), Stephen Critchlow (Red Dwarf) and Theo Stevenson (Humans).
When the TARDIS lands in 1952, the Doctor and Donna find London smothered in a blanket of deadly smog – the worst the city has ever seen. But another menace is on the streets – something sinister and alien… After a comic caper on contemporary Earth and an adventure into the far future, the Doctor and Donna shift gears with this tense character piece set during the events of a real-life historical tragedy. Up-and-coming Big Finish author Roy Gill (UNIT: Invocation) should deliver something chilling, but with a strong sense of heart.
This 5CD set sees the return of one of Big Finish’s most iconic TARDIS teams, with Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor joined by brave, brassy Northern lass Lucie Miller, once again played by Sheridan Smith (Jonathan Creek).
Four new adventures from the early days of the Doctor’s travels with Lucie: there’s a visit to a deadly roller derby, eccentric intrigue at an off-world human colony that seems mysteriously stuck in the 19th century, a Dalek encounter on the edge of a black hole, and eerie events on a remote island where the manifestation of death itself is stirring… Unencumbered by a slow-burning story arc, this 5 disc set should recapture the zippy energy of storytelling that made the Lucie Miller era so memorable the first time around.
The Eighth Doctor saga continues in this 5CD set, with Paul McGann joined by Nicola Walker, Hattie Morahan and Mark Bonnar as his companions Liv Chenka, Helen Sinclair and the Eleven.
space station full of the stuff of Time Lord nightmares, a deranged criminal kidnapping companions past, present and future, an encounter with the brothers Grimm where fairytales become a reality and a series of murders at the far edge of the universe… Why grab it? Three box sets in, the Ravenous arc is now set to kick into high gear. The addition of the erstwhile villainous Eleven to the TARDIS crew should make for a fascinating new dynamic between the main characters, and the special episode featuring various companions of the Eighth Doctor, including River, Bliss and Charley, should provide a treat for fans of this incarnation’s expansive audio era.
Former President Romana (Lalla Ward) is now the head of the Celestial Intervention Agency. Her team includes former bodyguard Leela (Louise Jameson), childhood mentor Braxiatel (Miles Richardson), new recruit Ace (Sophie Aldred), reluctant ally Narvin (Sean Carlsen) and the renegade known as the Master (Derek Jacobi).
The moment has come for the Time Lords to declare war on the Daleks. This quartet of stories chronicles the fighting in its early days, with dangerous missions, unlikely alliances, desperate Time Lords and bloodthirsty Daleks… Whilst other Time War sets have followed either the Doctor or the Master, this 5CD set is the first to show the conflict from the perspective of ‘the war room’, right at the heart of the political machinations of Gallifrey. Following a large ensemble also gives this set a unique sense of scale, showing how the war has changed the lives of so many familiar characters.
A new spin-off sequel to the TV episodes The End of the World, New Earth and Gridlock, this 5CD box set stars Kieron Hodgson as lowly city-dweller Devon Pryce, Anna Hope as Senator (previously Novice) Hame, Yasmin Bannerman as Sapling Vale (a cutting from Jabe from The End of the World) and Adjoah Andoh as Sister Jara (the sibling of Jatt, from New Earth).
Four narrated adventures set in the far-future world of New Earth, home of new humans, cat-people, sentient trees and plenty of other weird and wonderful creatures! Senator Hame has a society to rebuild, and she’s going to need Devon’s help to do it, but soon the unlikely pair uncover a conspiracy that threatens the whole planet. New Earth needs a hero, and they might have just arrived in a Police Box… Made with the blessing of Russell T Davies himself, this series expands on the colourful and vibrant world of New Earth, mixing the political intrigue of the New New York senate with the urban grit of the slum-like Under City and the thrilling adventure of the forests, deserts and skies of the planet that so many species call home.
Paul McGann returns as a battle-scarred Eighth Doctor in this 5CD set, with Rakhee Thakrar (EastEnders) as new companion Bliss, Jaqueline Pearce (Blake’s 7) as Cardinal Ollistra and Nicholas Briggs as the Daleks.
Four tales from the early days of the Time War, with mysterious disappearances on a space-liner, unlikely alliances on a time-corrupted planet, conscripts in a Time Lord military camp and the hunt for a weapon that could mean the end of the war… With the War Doctor series sadly over, Big Finish investigate the Time War from a new angle, with a younger Doctor who refuses to fight but can’t refuse to help. Writers Matt Fitton and John Dorney, both seasoned hands at writing for the Time War and the Eighth Doctor, deliver a blockbuster quartet of adventures that begins the sequence of events that lead to the end of the Eighth Doctor’s life in Night of the Doctor.
Two Third Doctor Audio Adventures in a 5CD boxset, with Katy Manning as Jo and Tim Treloar’s special rendition of the Doctor, featuring Rufus Hound (Doctor Who: The Woman Who Lived), Carolyn Pickles (Broadchurch) and Nicholas Briggs as the Cybermen.
The Rise of the New Humans, alien technology in a remote hospital leads the Doctor to suspect the interference of an old Time Lord rival, while the Tyrants of Logic sees the Doctor and Jo arrive at an abandoned mining colony that holds the key to the resurgence of the Cyber Empire… Aside from a return appearance of the Meddling Monk, this set boasts the Third Doctor encountering the Cybermen – something never seen on screen – in a script from acclaimed Cyberscribe Marc Platt (Spare Parts, The Silver Turk). According to Katy Manning, Treloar’s Third Doctor improves with every release, so by now his ability to capture the soul of Pertwee’s performance is absolutely extraordinary.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness and James Marsters as Captain John Hart, with Eve Myles as Gwen, Kai Owen as Rhys, Tom Price as Sgt Andy, Samuel Barnett as Norton Folgate and Rowena Cooper as Queen Victoria!
There’s a new head of Torchwood. He likes puppies, Napoleonic jackets and using time travel to get whatever the hell he likes. His name is Captain John Hart… Captain John was perhaps the most memorable villain in all of Torchwood’s original run on television. To have him back and having stolen Jack’s position is an utterly delicious idea, one that veteran Torchwood writer David Llewellyn (The Conspiracy, Uncanny Valley) is sure to run with.
