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.
Derek Jacobi returns to the role of the Master, with Silas Carson once again voicing the Ood. Those caught in the Master’s grasp include Simon Ludders (Broadchurch), Kai Owen (Torchwood) and Angela Bruce (Doctor Who: Battlefield).
A sprawling storyline told across four adventures concerning the Master’s machinations on the troubled mining colony Callous. There’s a place that’s home to surreal horrors, an army of Ood bent to the Master’s will, and a desperate family whose lives will never be the same… Veteran War Master writers James Goss (The Sky Man) and Guy Adams (The Heavenly Paradigm) are back, building a world unfortunate enough to be caught under the Master’s spell. Jacobi’s Master, so seemingly trustworthy but with menace lurking just beneath the surface, should be in his element in this intimate, psychological tragedy told against the cataclysmic backdrop of the Time War.
Romana (Lalla Ward) and Narvin (Sean Carlsen) of the Celestial Intervention Agency seem to have lost all of their allies, and the War Council of Gallifrey has a new leader. Enter: Rassilon (Terence Hardiman).
In their time of need, the Time Lords have resurrected their greatest hero. But the return of Rassilon deepens the divisions on Gallifrey, and Romana and Narvin soon discover that not even the Time War will put an end to the planet’s political machinations… Everyone loses in war time. While the first set in the saga charted the outbreak of the war, the second explores what dark methods the Time Lords may resort to if they are to emerge victorious. But every action has its consequences, and the exploration of a Time Lord resistance opposed to Rassilon’s authoritarian approach adds an extra layer of intrigue to an already compelling scenario.
Three War Doctor Audio Adventures in a 4CD boxset, starring John Hurt as the Doctor and Jacqueline Pearce as Cardinal Ollistra.
In this blockbuster trilogy of adventures chronicling further skirmishes of the Time War, the Sontarans make a desperate move to enter the conflict, the Daleks plot to turn the tide of battle against Gallifrey and the horrors of war threaten to spill over to planet Earth… This boxset places the War Doctor on Earth for the first time, making the inspired decision to send him to Cold War Berlin – an appropriately bleak chapter of history to match the machinations of the Time War. With the addition of Sontarans to the ongoing mix, and writers David Llewellyn, Andrew Smith and Ken Bentley on board, this may be the most diverse War Doctor collection yet.
Three War Doctor Audio Adventures in a 4CD boxset, starring John Hurt as the Doctor, Jacqueline Pearce as Cardinal Ollistra and guest starring David Warner as Technomancer Shadovar.
The Time Lord formerly known as the Doctor uncovers an unthinkable plan for the TIme Lords to gain an edge in their war against the Daleks, is drafted by the scheming Ollistra to a field mission on a desolate asteroid and ventures to a world where time itself has become a weapon… Whilst the first War Doctor miniseries was penned entirely by Nick Briggs, this follow-up collection takes a more diverse approach, by bringing in acclaimed scribes John Dorney and Matt Fitton, along with relative newcomer Phil Mulryne, to offer a fresh perspective on the most secret of Doctors. Having the War Doctor become Ollistra’s companion for one instalment is an inspired move and provides Hurt and Pearce with some great material.
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.
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.
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.
