Paul McGann leads an all-star cast in this 5CD set, including Rakhee Thakrar (Time War companion Bliss), Blakes 7’s Jacqueline Pearce (Cardinal Ollistra), Marple’s Julia McKenzie (the Twelve), Luther’s Nikki Amuka-Bird (Tamasan) and legendary impressionist Jon Culshaw (Doctor Ogron) with Nicholas Briggs as the Daleks.
The Doctor finds himself drawn closer to the heart of the conflict in this quartet of adventures set during the early stages of the Time War, visiting a twisted world that was once home to his companion, meeting an old enemy with a new face and waking in a prison designed for the most evil beings in the universe before finally being forced into battle… This set sees writers Jonathan Morris (We Are The Daleks), Guy Adams (The War Doctor: Pretty Lies) and Timothy X Atack (The Wreck of the World) throw some out-there elements to the Time War, introducing the Twelve – the new ‘little old lady’ incarnation of the villain previously known as the Eleven – as well as an intriguing new take on the Dalek’s old henchmen, the Ogrons. The Time War is about to get stranger.
This 5CD set sees the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann), Liv Chenka (Nicola Walker) and Helen Sinclair (Hattie Morahan) visit friend and foe alike in the shape of renegade Time Lord the Eleven (Mark Bonnar) and Liv’s sister Tula (Claire Rushbrook).
The Doctor tries to take his friends somewhere relaxing, but both a visit to Liv’s home and a festive treat in Austria are filled with more danger than the Doctor bargained for. Meanwhile, the true horror of the Ravenous threatens to emerge from the shadows… The set boasts the return of old favourites the Kaldor robots (from classic Fourth Doctor adventure The Robots of Death) as well as recurring Eighth Doctor audio villain the Eleven. There’s plenty new to be found as well, with a decidedly demonic double-length Christmas adventure and the first appearance of the titular Ravenous bringing an element of horror to the fore.
Paul McGann leads a stellar cast as the Eighth Doctor, joined by his TARDIS crew of Liv (Nicola Walker) and Helen (Hattie Morahan) along with his fiery future wife River Song (Alex Kingston) across four feature-length dramas.
A quiet retreat to the English countryside spirals out of control as a trans-temporal conspiracy threatens to pull reality apart. It’s a race against time through Earth’s past and present, but can the Doctor uncover the truth behind the Doom Coalition at last…? Having spent the first two boxsets setting up various elements, this third blockbuster instalment sees the large narrative cogs of Doom Coalition start to click into place. River’s return appearance makes for added tension as she and the younger Doctor continue their game of cat and mouse.
Paul McGann (the Eighth Doctor), Nicola Walker (Liv Chenka), Hattie Morahan (Helen Sinclair) and Alex Kingston (“Melody Malone”) lead a gargantuan cast across four blockbuster adventures, including the return of Mark Bonnar (the Eleven), Emma Cunliffe (the Sonomancer) and Robert Bathurst (Padrac), along with the Doom Coalition debut of Rufus Hound (the Meddling Monk)!
Picking up from the shocking cliffhanger that ended the previous box set, the Doctor must start from nothing if there is any hope of averting genocide on a cosmic scale. Melody Malone may be the Doctor’s only hope, but she’s just been made a better offer… A lot of build up has gone into the Doom Coalition series, establishing a number of settings and characters to set the stage for this, the payoff. With three companions, a consortium of renegade Time Lords and the Weeping Angels all in play, this 5 CD box set has had everything and the kitchen sink thrown in to make a spectacular finale.
This 5CD box set, the first in a series of four, sees Paul McGann’s leather-clad Eighth Doctor gain a new companion in the form of Helen Sinclair (Hattie Morahan). Liv Chenka (Nicola Walker) is also on hand as the Doctor battles the multiple-personality villain, the Eleven (Mark Bonnar).
Called to Gallifrey, the Doctor leads a manhunt for the most dangerous criminal known to Time Lord society – a hunt that takes him from the Capitol’s corridors of power, to London in the 1960s, to Renaissance Italy, to a Victorian factory adrift in the depths of space. With its sprawling narrative, the Doom Coalition series looks set to prove that there’s still plenty of life left in the adventures of the Eighth Doctor.
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.
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.
