New Look for Big Finish Doctor Who

New Look for Big Finish Doctor Who

10 December 2012

From January next year, we'll be joining in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary celebrations with a gorgeous new look for our titles.

Yes, we've redecorated - and we're sure you'll like it. The new logo and cover design can be seen on subscriber special Doctor Who: Night of the Stormcrow, out this month for those who've taken out a main range subscription including Doctor Who: 1001 Nights. The story can also be pre-ordered now in advance of its full release in December 2013.

CD subscribers will also notice a fresh new look in the CD booklets as well, with a revamp done by our superb 'in-house' designer Mark Plastow, who also designs and lays out each issue of our free magazine Vortex, creates covers and had a lot of input into the look of the website - amongst other things!

The revamp will begin with January's releases. Doctor Who: The Wrong Doctors, by Matt Fitton, finds Sixth Doctor Colin Baker (1984-1986) beginning a new trilogy of tales with Bonnie Langford playing Mel, a companion sadly absent from the main range since 2007's Doctor Who: The Wishing Beast - but now back and very much making her presence felt as two quite different Mels!

Doctor Who - The Companion Chronicles: The Flames of Cadiz finds Ian at the mercy of the Spanish Inquisition in Marc Platt's first purely historical tale for us, when the Doctor and his friends drop by Spain early in the sixteenth century.

And last but by no means least, Doctor Who: The Auntie Matter by Jonathan Morris begins the second series of Fourth Doctor Adventures, starring Tom Baker as the Doctor (who he played on TV between 1975 and 1981) and Mary Tamm as Romana. The pair kick off the run of seven stories by finding themselves embroiled in a tricky situation which wouldn't look out of place in a PG Wodehouse novel...

Keep an eye out, as well, for stories which tie in to the 50th anniversary in a big way - there'll be a gorgeous anniversary TARDIS logo on these special releases...
