This year, Big Finish will have been making Doctor Who audio adventures for 15 years. To celebrate this landmark we are releasing a special story in November, The Worlds of Doctor Who, which tells one epic four-hour adventure that weaves through many of our ranges.
Linking these episodes together is the enigmatic, wholly dangerous Mr Rees, who is played by Jamie Glover. Doctor Who fans may recognize Jamie for playing William Russell in Mark Gatiss’s acclaimed An Adventure in Space and Time.

In Victorian England, Henry Gordon Jago and Professor Litefoot investigate worrying events on the streets of London – which seem to be linked to the New Regency Theatre’s resident act, the mesmerist Mr Rees…
2: The Reesinger Process by Justin Richards
London, 1964, and the repercussions of Jago and Litefoot’s adventure are dealt with by Sir Toby Kinsella and his crack team of specialists at Counter-Measures. What is the Reesinger Process – and who is behind it?
3: The Screaming Skull by Jonathan Morris

4: Second Sight by Nick Wallace and Justin Richards
