The Eight Truths
One of the key adventures from Big Finish’s recent weekly release of Eighth Doctor stories, The Eight Truths stars Paul McGann as the Doctor, with Sheridan Smith as Lucie Miller and guest stars with Stephen Moore, Sophie Winkleman and Sanjeev Bhaskar (The Kumars at No 42, Goodness Gracious Me, Mumbai Calling).
Available for purchase on CD in September, The Eight Truths is the first installment of the concluding adventure to a great series of Doctor Who adventures from Big Finish.
London, 2015. The Doctorâ€™s looking for a lost space probe. Lucie Millerâ€™s feeling just plain lost, on a world she no longer quite belongs to.
Perhaps thereâ€™s someone who can help. A chance encounter with an old sparring partner leads Lucie to the Eightfold Truth â€“ a bunch of crystal-bearing cranks who reckon a rebel sun is on its way to purge the Earth. As if!
But what if theyâ€™re right?
The apocalypse is upon us. As humankind counts down the last days of its existence, the Doctor races to unmask the Eightfold Truth â€“ and uncovers an old and deadly enemy.
Written by Eddie Robson, the guest cast are:
Stephen Moore (Clark Goodman), Sophie Winkleman (Kelly Westwood), Sanjeev Bhaskar (Dr Avishka Sangakkara), Katarina Olsson (The Headhunter), Kerry Godliman (Karen), Richard Earl (Rob), Anthony Spargo (David), Beth Chalmers (Queen), Barnaby Edwards (Newsreader).
The Eight Truths is currently available for download from Big Finish – we’ll be featuring a review of the adventure when it is released on CD on September 30th.
