New Audios from Big Finish

Postby Mike Nuttall » Fri Feb 05, 2010 4:54 pm

Fifth Doctor Snaketacular!


The Mara, the snake-like demon from the 1980s stories Kinda and Snakedance, is returning in the forthcoming season of audio adventures featuring the Fifth Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Nyssa.

"The three stories were recorded just after Christmas," says executive producer Nicholas Briggs, "and everyone was on brilliant form. It was quite thrilling to hear Peter Davison, Janet Fielding, Mark Strickson and Sarah Sutton – who hadn't acted together since 1983 – recreating their roles so authentically. These adventures sound just like they've fallen through a time warp!

“The mood during the recording was quite rambunctious and everyone had such a brilliant time that I wouldn’t be surprised to see this team reunited again some time in the near future…”

The season begins in July with Cobwebs by Jonathan Morris, in which the travellers land on a scientific base which they have clearly visited before. The only thing is, it hasn’t happened yet… The guest cast includes Helen Griffin (Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel), Raymond Coulthard (Hotel Babylon) and Adrian Lukis (Pride and Prejudice, Peak Practice).

The Whispering Forest by Stephen Cole follows in August, and is set on an alien world where a colony has become obsessed with cleanliness – while strange creatures are prowling among the trees. Guest stars include Hayley Atwell (who stars in the remake of The Prisoner and appeared in the audio Doctor Who story Blood of the Daleks), Paul Shelley (Four to Doomsday) and Harry Melling (the Harry Potter films) – who just happens to be the grandson of Second Doctor Patrick Troughton!

Finally, the Mara returns in The Cradle of the Snake by Marc Platt, which sees the TARDIS crew return to Manussa, a planet that they last visited in 1983’s Snakedance.

“When we knew we could get these characters back together, we realised we wanted to bring back the Mara because it was an iconic monster from the Davison era,” says Nicholas Briggs. “Original writer Christopher Bailey gave us his blessing, and Marc Platt seemed the obvious choice to write it – because Marc does ‘weird’ so wonderfully!”

The story’s guest stars include Dan Stevens (The Line of Beauty, Dracula), Vernon Dobtcheff (The War Games) and Hugh Fraser (Poirot and the audio Doctor Who story Circular Time).

Looking ahead further into 2010, the free story for subscribers in December is going to be a multi-Doctor extravaganza! Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann will all join forces in The Four Doctors in an epic fight against the Daleks…

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

Turlough's back? Woot!

Let's just hope that none of the companions get squeezed out of this very crowded TARDIS...

Big Finish New Releases

Postby THE DALEK SUPREME » Mon Nov 08, 2010 2:35 pm

Bernice Summerfield: Escaping the Future

Starring Lisa Bowerman
(Duration: 60' approx)

Lisa Bowerman (Bernice Summerfield), Miles Richardson (Irving Braxiatel), Harry Myers (Adrian Wall), Louise Faulkner (Bev Tarrant), Steven Wickham (Joseph), Paul Wolfe (Hass), Sam Stevens(Doggles), Thomas Grant (Peter), Rachel Laurence (Lianna)

The galaxy has been torn apart by merciless invaders from the future. A coalition of worlds set up by Braxiatel has been comprehensively defeated by the superior technology of the Deindum. Only a few scattered pockets of resistance are still active.
Bev is running the Braxiatel Collection as a refugee camp, living in daily fear of attack. Adrian and Doggles hide in a bunker on the Moon, trying to launch covert attacks on the enemy with limited resources. And Hass is stranded on the occupied planet Maximediras.
Bernice and Peter are free for the moment, travelling around in time in an attempt to learn more about the Deindum. Where did they come from? What do they want? And can Bernice find a way to strike back at them?

Big Finish have released artwork for their collection of lost stories for the Second Doctor, due in December.

The set comprises the two stories, Prison in Space and The Daleks: The Destroyers.

Image

Prison in Space was originally commisioned for Season Six but, despite Dick Sharples’ script being completed, the story was never made. The audio production is adapted by Simon Guerrier and performed by Frazer Hines, Wendy Padbury and Susan Brown.

The Daleks: The Destroyers was originally planned by Terry Nation to be the pilot for a US series. The script has been adapted for audio by Nicholas Briggs and John Dorney, and is performed by Jean Marsh as Sara Kingdom, with Alan Cox as Mark Seven, Chris Porter as Jason Corey, Alex Mallinson as David Kingdom, and Nicholas Briggs as the Daleks.

I don't know why it's taken so long for BF to bring back the 80s Cybes. Just cause there's a certain breed of snooty 70sera fanboy of the frankly absurd belief that the barely intelligible 60s (and new poo) voices are better, I ask you, which works better on audio? It's not a serious question, because the answer is patently obvious.
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

Trailer's been bunged up on Twitter now. Sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

Oooh, I fancy those Fourth Doctor Comic Strip adaptions of The Iron Legion and The Star Beast. There's also some sort of a Flash Sale on BF's Novel Adaptions.
