A few new starts are about to take place at Big Finish and so for anyone looking to start listening to the audio adventures of the Doctor (or anyone looking to start listening to them after a period of abstinence) may want to jump on board this year as there are exciting times ahead!
The latest batch of Lost Stories featuring Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor will take you up until September this year. Following on from that will see Paul McGann return in the regular rotation on mini season arcs alongside the other Doctors. The Eighth Doctor will have a brand new companion to show the wonders of the Universe to in the shape of Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein.
Mary was last seen boarding the TARDIS at the end of The Company of Friends and now itâ€™s finally time to find out how her travels went. This has been something that the eighth Doctor has mentioned from the very start of his audio adventures, way back in Storm Warning so it will certainly be fun to see how Shelley deals with some of the terrible creatures that lie in wait for her. Julie Cox will be reprising her role as the author and if you havenâ€™t listened to The Company of Friends as yet then do so-itâ€™s well worth your time.
Following on from this in January 2012, thereâ€™s not only the exciting new run of fourth Doctor stories to anticipate but a new trilogy of plays for the Sixth Doctor as well and heâ€™ll also have a new friend aboard the TARDIS, the revelation of whom is something that Big Finish are keeping well under their stovepipe hats:
â€œWe’re not revealing which companion Colin is travelling with yet…but brace yourselves for something new and exciting.â€
Check out this weekâ€™s BF Podcast where Paul McGann and Julie Cox will be giving a teaser to their new stories together. For more information visit www.bigfinish.com
