The first season of Counter-Measures, is now available on CD and download at bigfinish.com - and a second run has been confirmed!
The first season of Counter-Measures, a new full cast audio series from Big Finish productions, is now available on CD and download at bigfinish.com. This spin-off from Ben Aaronovitch’s enduring popular Doctor Who TV story Remembrance of the Daleks sees the return of Simon Williams as Group Captain Gilmore, Pamela Salem as Rachel Jensen and Karen Gledhill as Allison Williams, who are joined by Hugh Ross as Toby Kinsella.
Counter-Measures is set in 1964, and centres on the titular specialist organization that is charged with investigating strange phenomena and dangerous new science.
The four hour-long dramas are written by Paul Finch, Matt Fitton, Ian Potter and Justin Richards. The series is produced by David Richardson, script edited by John Dorney and directed by Ken Bentley. The five-disc box set also includes an hour-long documentary that goes behind the scenes with the cast and crew.
“We’ve had a blast making this series,” says David, “and enthusiasm and love for the characters and setting has resulted in four stories we’re all very proud of.
“On the strength of season one, a second run has already been commissioned and scripts are just starting to come in. We’re all booked in to record in October, when Pamela Salem flies in from the US for the Counter-Measures reunion!”
