With a new month comes new news from Big Finish unveiling their next Doctor Who trilogy.
Starting soon, we have a brand new Seventh Doctor trilogy that kicks off in July and the first story contains some very familiar enemies of the Doctor. Robophobia sees a return of the Vocs, Dumbs and Super Vocs, the robot menaces that gave the fourth Doctor a tricky time in The Robots of Death.
Featuring as a direct sequel to the classic 1977 story, Robophobia also branches out into new realms as Executive Producer Nick Briggs explains:
â€œ[The story] goes in an entirely new direction, and I don’t just mean out into space.â€
The story will feature Nicola Walker, who is known for playing Ruth in the BBC series Spooks but also starred in Steven Moffatâ€™s teacher sitcom Chalk.
The trilogy will take a short break in August for the celebratory release of Big Finishâ€™s 150th Doctor Who story and then is back in with a double bill in September with the final two titles including The Doomsday Quatrain by Emma Beeby and Gordon Rennie, where the TARDIS land in seventeenth century Florence and the Doctor encounters Nostradamus. Finally, the trilogy ends with House of Blue Fire by Mark Morris within which weâ€™re promised:
â€œThereâ€™s an isolated house, a bunch of terrified squaddies, a legendary monster…â€
It looks like itâ€™s going to be an interesting summer…
