Big Finish Dark Eyes 2

Pre-Order Dark Eyes Now!

Coming soon from Big Finish: Dark Eyes, a brand new Eighth Doctor box set from their Doctor Who Special Releases range.

The Doctor is looking for hope. But instead, he finds himself on a mission. The Time Lords have uncovered terrifying fragments of an insane plot to destroy the universe. And somehow, at the centre of all this, is one random female in Earth’s history: Molly O’ Sullivan (Ruth Bradley).

Written and directed by Nicholas Briggs, Dark Eyes is comprised of four hour-long dramas: The Great War, Fugitives, Tangled Web and ‘X’ and the Daleks – and takes place after the tragic events of To The Death.

Amongst the returnees to the Doctor Who fold are Straxus, a Time Lord previously portrayed by Nickolas Grace, now played by Peter Egan; and Toby Jones – who played the Dream Lord in Amy’s Choice – as Kotris.

Something decidedly new for the set is the Eighth Doctor’s brand new costume which was previously revealed at the 2010 Armageddon Pop Culture Expo, along with a redesigned Sonic Screwdriver, courtesy of Weta Workshop and now graces the cover of this fabulous set.

Dark Eyes, starring Paul McGann, Ruth Bradley and Toby Jones, is available to pre-order now for £20 in both CD and download format for release on 20th November. Or you can subscribe to the Special Releases range (including titles like Love and War and UNIT: Dominion) for the pre-order price of £65 (£55 for downloads).

About the Author


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

One Response to Pre-Order Dark Eyes Now!

    I had to chuckle a bit, because Paul finally got his way. He wasn’t really keen on his attire in the TV Movie, especially the wig he had to wear because producer Philip Segal insisted on long hair for the Doctor. He spoke on several occasions of envying Christopher Eccleston’s look, and now he’s much closer to that. It does make continuity sense as well, as perhaps the Eighth Doctor was already changing in light of his recent traumatic experiences in “To The Death”. Little did he know then, about the coming “Time War” in which he would lose his eighth life and regenerate into his ninth. Or did he? I don’t know how close to the Time War that Big Finish would be allowed to go, so this will be interesting.
