AudioGo Releases Unearthly Child Prequel!

Be prepared… the Doctor meets his destiny in a new series of adventures from AudioGo, commencing with a prequel to his first ever adventure, An Unearthly Child!

The Doctor Meets His Destiny in part one of Destiny of the Doctor, Hunters of Earth

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who in 2013, this new series of eleven adventures – one per Doctor – will be released monthly between January and November, starting with Hunters of Earth by Nigel Robinson and starring Carole Ann Ford.

Teaming up with AudioGo on the project is Big Finish, and the description from the press release (see below) suggests that the series will be similar in format to the Companion Chronicles plays.

Eleven Doctors, Eleven Months

The series will begin in January with the First Doctor – as played by William Hartnell in the original TV series – and progress through all his TV incarnations to date, culminating in the Eleventh Doctor – as played by Matt Smith – in the anniversary month, November. Performers for the stories will be announced in the coming months, with some very familiar Doctor Who names expected to be in the line-up. The series is produced for AudioGO by Big Finish Productions.

First story announced

The first story is Hunters of Earth (Destiny of the Doctor 1) by Nigel Robinson. Set in Shoreditch, London in 1963, it features the First Doctor and his granddaughter Susan prior to their departure from Earth at the beginning of the first ever TV story. It’s performed by Carole Ann Ford and Tam Williams, with sound design by Simon Hunt.

The RRP for CD and download of Hunters of Earth is £10.20. We’ll have full details on how to purchase closer to the adventure’s release.
