Tom Baker and Louise Jameson are back as the Fourth Doctor and Leela, with guest performances from Dan Starkey (best known for playing Strax), Sophia Myles (Spooks, Doctor Who: The Girl in the Fireplace), Gabriel Woolf (Doctor Who: Pyramids of Mars) and many more.
The TARDIS journeys to a twisted caricature of the city of London, a 1970s hotel where the laws of time are being distorted and a planet of social media addicts where the Doctor is public enemy number one… This 4CD set has plenty to offer for fans of the classic ‘70s TARDIS team, with a double dose of surreal adventures – Justin Richards scripting a grotesque version of 1984 and Dan Starkey writing a Doctor Who take on the Hotel California – and an epic two-part conclusion to the series featuring a deadly encounter with old foe Sutekh the Destroyer.
Tom Baker’s Doctor and Lalla Ward’s Romana continue their Season 18-flavoured audio adventures, joined by Alistair Petrie (Rogue One), Sheila Ruskin (Doctor Who: The Keeper of Traken) and Brian Vernel (Doctor Who: Eaters of Light).
The Fourth Doctor range welcomes Big Finish newcomer Adrian Poynton, whose debut script promises a wonderfully bizarre mix of elements wrapped in that signature Season 18 grimness. Features a WW2 submarine that has drifted off course, a crew that has dwindled to just three men, and a chimp.
The Fourth Doctor and Romana II land in the company of Simon Jones (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) and Denise Black (Queer As Folk).
Investigating rumours of apparitions in a 1920s mansion, the Doctor encounters an all-too-convincing haunting… Inspired by the works of classic ghost story writer M.R. James, Big Finish up-and-comer Phil Mulryne has spun a spooky tale that puts the Doctor’s certainty in science to the test in appropriately Bidmeadian fashion.
It’s back to Season 18 for Tom Baker (The Fourth Doctor) and Lalla Ward (Romana II), along with Camilla Power (Torchwood: From Out of the Rain), Chris Jarman (Doctor Who: The Curse of the Black Spot) and Jane Slavin (incoming Fourth Doctor companion Ann Kelso).
An archaeological dig searching for Iron Age relics finds a product of alien technology. Beneath the soil, a Movellan warship is stirring, and one of the greatest threats to all humanity lies on board… Fresh from their cameo appearance in Series 10, the Movellans make an unexpected return here in a script from genuine Season 18 scribe Andrew Smith. Smith has past form putting a new spin on old monsters, including the Sontarans, the Voord and his own TV creations the Marshmen, so this adventure should expand on the silver dreadlocked robots in interesting ways.
In the latest of her travels with the Doctor (Tom Baker), Romana (Lalla Ward) runs into her old friend, Sartia (Joannah Tincey).
The surface of the planet Funderell is covered by a gelatinous ocean – keep moving and you stay afloat, but stop and you sink. It seems hope may be lost when the Doctor and Romana lose the TARDIS to the ocean, but help may be at hand – in the most unusual of guises…! The Doctor has come across old friends many times, but this is the first time Romana has run into a figure from her past. But who is Sartia and what is she doing away from Gallifrey? Writer Marc Platt (Philip Hinchcliffe Presents) provides some interesting answers…
The sequel to The Skin of the Sleek, featuring Tom Baker as the Doctor, Lalla Ward as Romana and Johanna Tincey as Romana’s old friend Sartia.
The depths of Funderell hide many secrets. Ripples cross the surface of the ocean, caused by something unimaginably large lurking far below. It’s time for the Doctor to go hunting… The events of The Skin of the Sleek, and of this run of Fourth Doctor/Romana adventures, comes to a conclusion here with Marc Platt again on writing duties. Always a highly visual writer whatever medium he is working in, Platt should provide something suitably spectacular.
The Fourth Doctor, Romana II and K-9 return for a new series of adventures, this time set during Tom Baker’s final season as the Doctor. Joining them for this opening salvo are those intrepid investigators of infernal incidents, Jago and Litefoot!
Looking to pay a visit to some old friends, the Doctor and Romana are soon investigating a series of impossible burglaries and finding a slavering monster on the streets of London… The whit and whimsy of Jago and Litefoot married with the more scientific tone that was common to Season 18 makes for a fascinating combination. This is also the Victorian duo’s first encounter with K-9, and a chance to see the tin dog tread the boards (or should that be roll over them?) as Jago’s new act!
It’s something of a reunion as Tom Baker and Lalla Ward are joined by Tom ‘Duggan’ Chadbon – here playing the new character of Embery. John Leeson also plays the dual roles of K-9 and computer-god Machina!
They say that peace will stop the war, but how can there be any winner on a planet at war with itself? But the planet Aoris isn’t an ordinary battlefield– the warring factions aren’t neighbouring nations or continents, but the populations of the past and future, with Doctor and Romana caught on opposing sides… The past at war with the future is a concept worthy of Douglas Adams and so well suited to writer Jonathan Morris’ sometimes funny, sometimes serious, often time-bending, always versatile style. Expect something with equals parts wit and grit from this miniature Time War.
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.
