A Seventh Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Sylvester McCoy, with Bonnie Langford as Mel.
In a run-down asylum, screams echo in the halls as mysterious creatures roam, terrorizing the staff. Patients complain of betrayal rather than illness, and no-one is quite what they seem. Mel knows that the Doctor is the best person to find the answers – but she is stranded on Earth, and the TARDIS has returned without him… Why does a medical facility need to be under armed guard? What procedures are the staff carrying out, and to what purpose? What is the price that must be paid for making an agreement with those who run the asylum? As the answers begin to be uncovered, the Doctor finds that the past may yet come back to haunt him…
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring Simon Russell Beale (Penny Dreadful, Spooks) as the mysterious M LeDuc.
In German-occupied Paris, inside a hidden room, the Third Reich are about to learn the secrets of Torchwood… By populating this intriguing period drama with all-new characters, writer Lizzie Hopley has raised the stakes as no-one is safe from being killed off. The current run of single-disc Torchwood plays hasn’t been afraid to try new things, and this concluding instalment looks to close the season off in appropriately dramatic style.
David Tennant returns to the role of the Tenth Doctor while Billie Piper makes her Big Finish debut as Rose. Joining them are Camille Coduri as Rose’s mum Jackie and Rosie Cavaliero (Wizards vs Aliens) as Jackie’s friend Marge.
The last thing Jackie expected when paying a visit to an old friend was an alien invasion of Norwich. Calling on the Doctor and Rose, the three of them soon discover that there is more to this alien incursion than meets the eye… The reunion of the beloved duo of the Tenth Doctor and Rose is a momentous occasion. Penned by one of Big Finish’s finest, John Dorney (The Two Masters, Doom Coalition), this adventure has some great material for the time travellers (and Jackie!) in a script worthy of Russell T Davies himself.
Torchwood Series 5 has begun with this special 4CD set. Jack (John Barrowman), Gwen (Eve Myles), Rhys (Kai Owen) and Andy (Tom Price) are back, and ready to lead Torchwood into a new age.
Torchwood has returned from the dead, but Cardiff is a changed city. When fear grips the population, the new Torchwood will have to go to extreme lengths just to ensure their survival… With new characters and scenarios co-created by original showrunner Russell T Davies, writers James Goss (Ghost Mission), Juno Dawson (The Dollhouse) and AK Benedict (The Victorian Age) are ready to take Torchwood into a new era.
It’s a trip back in time for David Tennant and Billie Piper, meeting Nickolas Grace (Doctor Who: Death is the Only Answer), Mark Elstob (The Prisoner) and Lucy Briggs-Owen (Doctor Who: The War Doctor).
A three-faced killer stalks the countryside in 18th century England. Only the Doctor, Rose and peculiar aristocrat the Chevalier d’Eon can prevent the devastation of the human race… Accomplished writer Guy Adams (The War Doctor, Torchwood: Outbreak) serves up a script with swordfights, costume parties and a real – if delightfully obscure – historical figure. The RTD era frequently gave us fun, frenetic ‘celebrity historicals’, and here is Big Finish’s answer – with frills!
Led by Kate Stewart (Jemma Redgrave) and aided by Petronella Osgood (Ingrid Oliver), UNIT battles against the Daleks (Nicholas Briggs) and the Sontarans (Dan Starkey)!
Four new skirmishes for the UNIT team, as they encounter a lone Dalek in a Central American jungle, ghosts that seemingly stalk the UNIT team, a clone army bred for battle and another world where UNIT is a rather different organisation… While previous UNIT box sets have favoured overarcing villains and storylines, this 5CD release marks a change by taking a more anthology-like approach. With Daleks, Sontarans and the hint of the return of a particularly infernal parallel universe, this quartet of tales proves a winning combination.
John Barrowman and Eve Myles lead the Torchwood Series 5 ensemble in this 4CD set as Captain Jack and Gwen, joined by Kai Owen as Rhys, Tom Price as Andy and the surprising return of Tracy-Ann Oberman as Yvonne Hartman.
A wave of vigilante crime, the coming of the apocalypse and the double-date from hell. It could only be Torchwood… Meet the new boss – same as the old boss! Former head of Torchwood One Yvonne Hartman is back from the dead and she wants Torchwood Three for herself. Throwing her into the mix raises the stakes for Jack and his team as the Aliens Among Us story arc reaches its gripping conclusion.
Continuing on from Aliens Among Us 1, the Torchwood Series 5 regulars – led by Captain Jack (John Barrowman), Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) and Andy Davidson (Tom Price) – square off against old foe Bilis Manger (Murray Melvin) in this 4CD set.
The post-Miracle Day adventures continue with terror threats, luxury apartments, sinister tech start-ups and police shootings. And with stories ripped from the headlines and given a Torchwood twist, Aliens Among Us continues to be a very grounded sci-fi series. The return of Bilis Manger, last seen fleeing the son of the Beast at the end of Series 1, provides a link from Torchwood present to Torchwood past.
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.
Derek Jacobi returns as the Master for the first time since 2007’s Utopia. Joining him are Jonny Green (Torchwood’s Tyler Steele) as his companion Cole and Nicholas Briggs as the Daleks.
A quartet of adventures chronicling the Master’s exploits during the Time War. From posing as the Doctor on a Dalek-occupied world, to going undercover on a hospital planet, to seeing the culmination of his masterplan on 1970s Earth, these tales give a fascinating new angle on both the Master and the war he loathes… The Master stars in his own series at last! Not only that, but the short on-screen life of Derek Jacobi’s incarnation means the character is ripe for further exploration. Producer Scott Handcock (Torchwood, Gallifrey: Intervention Earth) has cleverly identified that the Master isn’t a warrior, so instead this 5CD set sees him attempting to manipulate the Time War to his own ends.
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.
Tom Baker (the Fourth Doctor), Louise Jameson (Leela) and John Leeson (K-9) take us back to the ‘70s in this 4CD boxset, with guest performances from Dan Starkey (best known for playing Strax), Josette Simon (Blake’s 7), Toby Hadoke (Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf) and more.
In this first half of a new series, a planet with recreational mind transference technology is suffering from a wave of suicides, a ship full of Voc Robots are targeted in a dirty civil war and scientist Leela Marshall awakes from a dream where she travels in time and space… This box set, the first of a new format, delivers four discs of adventures in one go, presenting the opportunity to tell more interconnected stories on a larger scale. With Andrew Smith (Full Circle) handling the return of the Robots of Death, John Dorney (The King of Sontar) telling a future-noir tale and a creepy character piece from David Llewellyn (Torchwood: Uncanny Valley) this set looks to kick the new format off with style.
Two First Doctor audio adventures 5CD boxset, starring the cast of An Adventure in Space and Time – David Bradley as the First Doctor, Claudia Grant as Susan, Jemma Powell as Barbara and Jamie Glover as Ian.
The first of this set’s two 4-part adventures is a futuristic tale set in the Space Year 2003 (!). The second is a historical, taking place during one of the worst blizzards in the history of New York City… The idea of doing ‘60s style stories with an all new cast would usually be outrageous, but as Big Finish are using the cast from the 50th anniversary docudrama An Adventure in Space and Time – a cast therefore chosen and approved by the BBC – the whole thing acquires a unique legitimacy. With scripts dripping with ‘60s authenticity and introducing the Master’s first incarnation, this set is all about old things made new.
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.
This 5D set sees River Song (Alex Kingston) continue her backwards encounters with her husband, the Doctor (Peter Davison), whilst squaring off against her old foe Madame Kovarian (Frances Barber).
Four new adventures for River, featuring a perennially forgetful husband, a murderer on the loose in 18th century Vienna, a planet that literally deals in death, and some unexpected ghosts from River’s past… This set focuses on some rich character material by delving into the scars of River’s past. The conflict between River and the Church, as led by Kovarian, felt somewhat unresolved at the end of Series 6 on TV, so this set should allow a deeper look at her relationship with the woman who tried to mould her into a weapon.
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.
The Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) along with his companions Liv (Nicola Walker) and Helen (Hattie Morahan) move into a new era with this first instalment in a series of blockbuster 5CD box sets, featuring a wartime drama, a time travel/black comedy mashup and a two-part sci-fi adventure on a prison world.
The Doctor and Liv are searching for their missing friend Helen – last seen being abducted by the dangerous Time Lord criminal The Eleven (Mark Bonnar). Whilst on their journey they encounter the likes of wartime prime minister Winston Churchill (Ian McNeice) and a familiar villain with a new, peppermint twist: The Kandyman (Nicholas Rowe)… It’s a new direction for the Eighth Doctor. The epic adventures of past releases have been swapped out for something a little more intimate and spooky, and the interconnected story arcs have been dropped in favour of a more balanced mix of standalone stories and ongoing elements, making this a more accessible, approachable series for listeners new and old.
Tom Baker and Louise Jameson are back for this 4CD release as the classic combination of the Fourth Doctor and Leela, with comedian and sometime Tom Baker impersonator Jon Culshaw as DeRosa Janz.
A human colony world is divided: the city-dwellers thrive in their high tech homes with their artificially generated children, while the detested outsiders live a life barely above savagery. The two groups are poised on the edge of conflict, but a third, unknown force may destroy them all… Prior ‘Hinchcliffe Presents’ stories have been historicals, so this release will be the first new adventure to take the classic producer’s style to a futuristic setting. Hinchcliffe’s literary references are on display again, with this story carrying more than a whiff of HG Wells’ The Time Machine.
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.
This Second Doctor adventure on a double CD stars Frazer Hines as Jamie McCrimmon and the Doctor, with Wendy Padbury as Zoe.
In a remote corner of space, the TARDIS collides with the wreck of an ancient starship known as The World. Separated in the collision, the Doctor, Jamie and Zoe have no choice but to reunite on board the wreck. But the arrival of the travellers awakens something deep inside the wreck, something that threatens the end of all worlds… Award-winning radio writer and Big Finish newcomer Timothy X Atack promises some atypical character material for this late ‘60s lineup, as well as the kind of claustrophobic horror that evokes the feeling of the monochrome era so well.
