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.
Two Third Doctor adventures in a 5CD boxset, with Katy Manning as Jo Grant and Tim Treloar as Big Finish’s own Third Doctor, featuring John Levene as Sergeant Benton, Jon Culshaw as the Brigadier and Daisy Ashford as Liz Shaw.
A visit from the Doctor and Jo spells infernal trouble for Professor Liz Shaw in Primord, while The Scream of Ghosts sees the Doctor and Benton uncover the alarming connections between a new communications technology and the terrifying sounds emanating from the nearby countryside… Big Finish have now gained the confidence to finally recreate the ‘UNIT family’ in a full-cast drama. Stepping into the beloved characters of Liz and the Brig isn’t to be taken lightly, but the canny casting of the late Caroline John’s daughter as Liz and a gifted mimic and lifelong Doctor Who fan as the Brig should make this a loving tribute to an era that is sadly lacking in surviving original actors. The characters should be well served not only by the cast, but also by acclaimed audio authors John Dorney (credit here) and Guy Adams (The Transcendence of Ephros).
