A Sixth Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Colin Baker, with George Sear as Mathew Sharpe.
An old derelict spaceship is undergoing renovations funded by its new owner. It’s all going smoothly until a murder happens. The Doctor soon deduces that the bionic worker drones have been reprogrammed to kill, but the repercussions of his discovery threaten to cause catastrophe on a universal scale… Big Finish has bestowed the Sixth Doctor with many new companions, but Mathew is unusual not only because he is a spacefaring young man (harking back to the sort of companion we haven’t seen since Steven Taylor), but also because he was announced with surprisingly little fanfare, suggesting that he may not be all that he seems…
A Sixth Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Colin Baker, with Blake Harrison as Daniel Hopkins, Russ Bain as Lewis Price and David Banks as the Cyber Leader.
UNIT summons the Doctor to London, the deserted capital of a nation gripped by an extreme drought – a drought with a suspected extraterrestrial cause. The Cybermen have been waiting, and it seems that their hour has come… Whilst Big Finish have told plenty of new Cybermen tales, this is the first time they’ve used the talents of bona fide ‘80s Cybermen stalwarts David Banks and Mark Hardy. This story is also a sequel to Fifth Doctor adventure The Helliax Rift, revisiting some key characters and showing them in a different light.
A Seventh Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Sylvester McCoy, with Sophie Aldred as Ace, Bonnie Langford as Mel, and Sean Carslen as Narvin.
As one of the most successful businessmen of all time, Josiah W. Dogbolter owns a lot of things. He owns a Quantum Possibility Engine, a device that could make life wonderful for everybody or tear the universe apart. He’s the new President of the Solar System, so he basically owns a galaxy. He’s also the new owner of a Type 40 TARDIS… This adventure injects a sense of fun into the travels of the Seventh Doctor, Ace and Mel. Writer Guy Adams (The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Sword of the Chevalier) delivers a comedy of galactic proportions full of larger-than-life characters but with the hint of something sinister lurking underneath.
A Seventh Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Sylvester McCoy, with Tracey Childs as Elizabeth Klein, Blake Harrison as Daniel Hopkins and Russ Bain as Lewis Price.
It’s no happy reunion when the Doctor crosses paths with UNIT, as demands to end the secrecy of the organisation have brought it to the point of crisis. Somehow, the future of UNIT is tied to events that took place many years ago at a place called Warlock’s Cross… This release sees the return of the multifaceted and morally complex Klein: a brilliant scientist who has a chequered history with the Doctor. Written by Klein’s creator, Steve Lyons, this tale also functions as the final instalment in a trilogy of UNIT adventures, and should see the storylines concerning the characters of Price and Hopkins conclude in a dramatic fashion.
A Seventh Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Sylvester McCoy, with Sophie Aldred as Ace, Philip Olivier as Hex, Katy Manning as Iris Wildthyme and David Benson as Panda.
Paris in the 1920s is home to all kinds of people. There’s the veiled lady with a face like a cubist painting, and the acerbic art critic who looks suspiciously like a stuffed toy panda. But there’s a mystery that lies beneath the city’s cheerful bohemian veneer, and the search for the truth could tear one of the Doctor’s oldest friendships apart… The delightfully idiosyncratic Iris Wildthyme has been cropping up at Big Finish for years, meeting multiple Doctors. This release marks her first encounter with the Seventh Doctor, and the contrast between the methodical Time Lord against the effervescent and fanciful Iris should make for an intriguing combination. Coming from the brilliantly warped mind of Paul Magrs (The Zygon Who Fell To Earth), this should be a Parisian adventure to remember!
A Sixth Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Colin Baker, with Amy Beth Hayes as Yrsa.
Arriving in present-day Iceland, the Doctor soon becomes the suspect of a murder case – but further investigation reveals that the real killer is an alien hunter stalking the landscape, killing humans for sport. And it isn’t long before the Doctor and Yrsa find themselves in the hunter’s sights… Doctor Who is adept at absorbing other genres, and with a moody atmosphere, a chilly setting and a hardened female detective, this adventure is a Doctor Who take on Scandi-noir – think The Bridge or The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. This unconventional (by Doctor Who standards) setup should make for a refreshing, thrilling and very contemporary story from writer AK Benedict (Shadow Planet).
A Fifth Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Peter Davison, with Janet Fielding as Tegan, Mark Strickson as Turlough and Jon Culshaw as Kamelion.
Arriving on a prison ship, the TARDIS crew are accused of aiding the ship’s sole prisoner – the warlord Nusantu, a being with fearsome mind control powers. When the prisoner escapes, the rest of the ship’s occupants must band together in order to stay alive, but can they really trust each other…? Kamelion – an enigmatic, shape-shifting android – was one of the most interesting companions created for television, but technical issues with the onscreen prop limited the character’s appearances to just two stories. Now performed by highly skilled mimic Jon Culshaw (succeeding the late Gerald Flood), Kamelion is an ideal candidate for further exploration on audio – and with writer Cavan Scott (Masters of Earth) placing the impressionable Kamelion in the same setting as a mind-controlling villain, this adventure should make for a strong opening to this TARDIS team’s first trilogy of adventures.
Two Fifth Doctor Audio Adventures on a double CD starring Peter Davison, with Janet Fielding as Tegan, Mark Strickson as Turlough and Jon Culshaw as Kamelion.
The TARDIS arrives in a Welsh coal mine facing imminent disaster, and Tegan is abducted to participate in a rogue game show…! The adventures making up this double bill are an exercise in contrasts – there’s a gritty historical drama from Jamie Anderson (Absolute Power), while the script from Eddie Robson (Time in Office) is inspired by obstacle course game shows of the ‘80s! Both should take the TARDIS crew into unfamiliar territory and shed new light on the characters.
A Seventh Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Sylvester McCoy, with Sophie Aldred as Ace and Bonnie Langford as Mel.
Planning on visiting a world of natural beauty, the Doctor and his friends instead arrive on the neighbouring parking planetoid, and soon find themselves caught in a war about Free Parking… With the story’s satirical themes married to writer John Dorney’s signature wit, this could be the makings of another corker from Big Finish, recalling classic TV stories such as The Sunmakers and Paradise Towers.
A Sixth Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Colin Baker, with Miranda Raison as Constance.
With its unusual monastic setting, featuring anachronistic technology, catacombs, Census officials and stained-glass Daleks, this script from Mike Tucker (The Warehouse) offers a fresh take on Skaro’s finest.
A Seventh Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Sylvester McCoy, with Sophie Aldred as Ace and Bonnie Langford as Mel.
Aiming for a quiet Spanish holiday, the TARDIS team arrive instead at the height of the Spanish Civil War. Francisco Franco’s bombers rain terror from the skies, but terror may also take other, less terrestrial forms… All three of this old-new TARDIS team have battle scars in their own way – placing them amidst the horrors of history should provide juicy dramatic material. Writer Guy Adams, a seasoned scribe of Torchwood and Bernice Summerfield, excels in placing the regulars through the wringer.
A Seventh Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Sylvester McCoy, with Geoffrey Beevers as the Master and Alex Macqueen as the Master!
The universe nears the point of total collapse. Only a trio of Time Lords can put a stop to it. Shame they can’t get along… The first multi-Master story in a performed medium has been met with critical praise – little surprise when John Dorney is on board as writer and Jamie Anderson is in the director’s chair, both of them having produced excellent work for Big Finish in the recent past.
A Seventh Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Sylvester McCoy, with Bonnie Langford as Mel and featuring Dan Starkey.
A long-abandoned deep space facility may hold the secret of what the Sontarans fear most… Aside from voicing Field-Major Kayste and a number of his clone comrades in this production, Dan Starkey is also serves as co-writer alongside Big Finish regular John Dorney (Dark Eyes 4, Requiem for the Rocket Men). Never before has there been a Sontaran tale penned by someone who has worn the mask, helmet and probic vent of Sontar, so this play may provide some unique insights. This will also be the first meeting of the diminutive space sentries with Mel Bush – an unlikely combination that should throw up plenty of surprises.
A Seventh Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Sylvester McCoy, with Sophie Aldred as Ace and Philip Olivier as Hex.
Hex is dead. And a distraught Ace holds the Doctor responsible. She forces him to take a trip to 21st century Liverpool to break the news to Hex’s beloved nan and, to pay tribute to Thomas Hector Schofield, the pair seek out his family and friends to tell them of his adventures. They’re helped by Private Sally Morgan, who has her own peace to find. The Doctor, Ace and Sally must each face the fallout of the loss of their friend – to commemorate him, remember him, and finally to move on. But can they do it together, or will their attempts drive them apart?
A Seventh Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Sylvester McCoy, with Tracey Childs as Klein.
The Umbrella Man is back. But when the Doctor recruits UNIT’s Scientific Adviser Elizabeth Klein for an off-the-books mission to the apocalyptic final days of Hitler’s Germany, he isn’t expecting Klein’s hapless young assistant, Will Arrowsmith, to be joining them too. The Doctor isn’t the only alien creature seeking to loot a very particular secret from a Nazi base in Dusseldorf, however. Strange and sinister beings are converging on the same time/space location in search of the scientist Schalk, whose experiments are the key to a devastating power… The power of Persuasion.
A Fifth Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Peter Davison, with Janet Fielding as Tegan, Mark Strickson as Turlough and Sarah Sutton as Nyssa.
The TARDIS brings the Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Nyssa to the University of Frodsham, close to where the warrior queen Æthelfrid fought a desperate and bloody rearguard action against the savage Danes. Over a thousand years later, in 1983, battle is still being raged, with student activists taking on savage funding cuts… and disrupting a conference about Æthelfrid convened by history professor John Bleak. Meanwhile, over in the Physics Department, Dr Philippa Stone is working night and day on a top-secret project – but can her theoretical time machine really be the solution to the university’s problems? Present and past are about to collide – and the results, as the TARDIS crew is about to discover, will be far from academic!

A race against time takes them from the Great Tower of Kalsos to the Reliquaries of Earth. In an epic journey across the ten systems, their fates are intertwined with one family. The Tevelers are to feel the effects of war more than most… The Doctor has a plan. Mel is sure he can save the day. But something is lurking. Watching. Waiting. A presence the Doctor knows of old. But just how far does its influence pervade? The Eminence awaits…

The planet Cawdor. Deep in the heart of the Drashani Empire. The Doctor lands thirty years after the Succession of Blood brought Empress Cheni to the throne. For most of her reign there has been peace and prosperity. The Empire flourished. But five years ago, the War came. And nothing was ever the same again.

A Fifth Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Peter Davison, guest starring Tim Treloar and Clive Mantle.
The Drashani Empire – a galaxy-spanning civilisation, the glory of Rome set among the stars. But for decades now, the Royal Houses of Gadarel and Sorsha have been at war, each claiming the Imperial throne. The wedding of Prince Kylo and Princess Aliona was meant to change all that – a blessed union between the Houses, a new hope for the Empire. Until Aliona’s wedding galley crash-landed on the planet Sharnax – and all contact was lost. The TARDIS lands aboard the ship carrying the fiery Kylo in search of his lost princess – but with a sabre-toothed monster roaming its corridors, the Doctor soon discovers he’s not the only alien presence aboard.
A Seventh Doctor Audio Adventure on a double CD starring Sylvester McCoy, with Sophie Aldred as Ace, Philip Olivier as Hex, Amy Pemberton as Sally and Maggie O’Neill as Captain Aristedes.
The TARDIS arrives in the land of the Danes, where a young warrior seeks to rid the kingdom of Hrothgar from a cruel and terrifying demon. The brave young warrior is Beowulf; the monster is Grendel… or so his name will one day be written. But what’s written down in black and white is sometimes very far from the truth – as the Doctor knows, and his companions are about to discover.
