It Can’t Come Soon Enough: Dark Eyes 3!

Perhaps my favorite quote about Paul McGann’s work with Big Finish comes from Doctor Who producer, Steven Moffat: “Recently, on TV, we saw how the Paul McGann Doctor died – now it’s time to find out how he lived.”

The quote was in regards to the award-winning Big Finish series, Doctor Who: Dark Eyes, and I am pleased to report that the third installment, Dark Eyes 3, is set for release in November. The four-part audio story finds the Doctor racing to save his friend Molly O’Sullivan (Ruth Bradley) from the fiendish schemes of The Master (Alex Macqueen):

In his quest for universal domination, the Master plans to exploit the terrifying Infinite Warriors of the mysterious Eminence. The Doctor’s friend, Molly, is key to that plan’s execution, and now, aided by corrupted genius Sally Armstrong, the Master is close to success. Paranoid and perplexed after his recent experience, the Doctor skirts the fringes of the fifty-year conflict between humanity and the Infinite Armies. Wary of changing the course of history, he fears that to fight the Eminence would be to do the Daleks’ bidding. But when Time Lord CIA agent Narvin provides the impetus for the Doctor to act, Liv Chenka joins him in a desperate race to save their friend and stop the Master. As the Doctor goes head to head with his oldest and deadliest rival, this war is about to get very personal indeed…

The story is written by Matt Fitton and is broken down into four parts: The Death of Hope, The Reviled, Masterplan, and Rule of the Eminence. If all of this wasn’t exciting enough, Doctor Who alum and wife of Tenth Doctor (David Tennant), Georgia Moffett, also stars in the closing chapter of the story as Engineer Tallow. It is safe to say that there has never been a better time to get in on the Big Finish Paul McGann action. To borrow from the Capaldi-led Series 8 logline, it’s time that you knew him.

Dark Eyes 3 is available for preorder now. Will you be picking this up to see “how the McGann Doctor lived?” Sound off below!

“That’s bacon! Are you trying to poison me?” And from that line on, I’ve been unable to stop watching, reading, musing about the Doctor. As a recent transplant to the Whoniverse, I’ve been trying to soak up as much Who-related knowledge as possible. That journey has taken me from the Tenth Planet to the Fields of Trenzalore and gently set me at the edge of my seat for what’s next. It’s an honor to be here and I plan to bring a unique perspective. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey alongside me.

    Definitely will be buying. I have loved the McGann stories from Storm Warning, and they just keep getting better. McGann is such a good actor and the writing at Big Finish is so often the best Doctor Who has ever had. Matt Fitton has generally been a strong writer and, apart from being slightly too Dalek-centric (something hopefully reduced by the Emmenance) the Dark Eyes series has been the highlight of the last two years for me. Ultimately, Moffat’s referencing of the audio companions was a bit of a relief for me as it meant I was finally able to start accepting the rebooted TV series as canon…

    I didn’t realise Matt Fitton was writing this one! This pleases me greatly.
