Stockbridge – the English village created for the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip adventures of the Doctor – is set to feature in a new trilogy of audio adventures from Big Finish.
The village of Stockbridge featured in the strips The Tides of Time, The Stockbridge Horror, and Stars Fell on Stockbridge in the 1980s, and more recently The Stockbridge Child.
Script editor Alan Barnes:
"The three stories in our ‘Stockbridge trilogy’ are set in the past, present and future of the village. They’re all very different. October’s Castle of Fear, set in the Middle Ages, is a galumphing historical adventure with, hopefully, a very surprising twist.
"Jonny Morris’s The Eternal Summer, released in November, is a weird Sapphire and Steel-y sort of affair featuring mad UFO spotter Max Edison, and Mark Morris’s Village of the Damned, released in December, is a full blooded horror-ish sort of thing, with sinister ravens and zombie cricketers!"
The trilogy stars Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor and Sarah Sutton as companion Nyssa. Find out more at www.bigfinish.com.
