Newly out today are the latest two Doctor Who full cast audiobook releases: Spaceport Fear and The Sands of Life, plus Blake's 7 ebook, Warship.
Doctor Who: Spaceport Fear is the latest story to star Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor (seen on TV from 1984-1986) alongside Bonnie Langford as Mel, who partnered him on screen in 1986. As the title would suggest, they find themselves on an apparently deserted spaceport... but there are strange and terrifying things lurking in the dark corners. Will they ever manage to facilitate a departure? Written by William Gallagher and directed by Barnaby Edwards, the story also features Ronald Pickup.
Meanwhile, over on The Fourth Doctor Adventures, the Doctor, Romana and K9 find themselves caught between a mass of aliens heading for Earth and the powerful head of the Conglomerate, Cuthbert, in The Sands of Life. Tom Baker (the Doctor on TV form 1974-1981) is once more teamed with Mary Tamm as Romana, and John Leeson joins them in the TARDIS as well this month as K9 for the first three (count 'em!) parts of a five-part story which continues next month with War Against the Laan. It's written and directed by Nicholas Briggs, and the cast includes David Warner, Toby Hadoke and Hayley Atwell, the last of whom can be seen this very evening on Channel 4 in writer Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror...
Also available now for download is the ebook version of Blake's 7: Warship. The companion to the massively well-received full cast audiobook of the same name, it expands the story to full-length novel form and provides additional background and insight into the Galactic War. Don't miss it!
As part of our 15 Days of Big Finish, celebrating 15 years of Doctor Who audio adventures, Nick Briggs, Sue Cowley and Ian Atkins are chatting to writer Rob Shearman.
