Four new encounters of the scary and supernatural await Dr Anne Reynolds and Adam Dean in The Omega Factor Series Three.
These four new tales come from Roy Gill, (writer for Dorian Gray and Dark Shadows), Phil Mulryne (Doctor Who, The Avengers and Survivors), star Louise Jameson and daughter of The Omega Factor creator Jack Gerson, Natasha Gerson.
Originally produced by BBC Scotland and aired on BBC One, The Omega Factor scared viewers in 1979 and attracted criticism from famed moralist Mary Whitehouse for its sheer levels of terror. Big Finish is carrying on the adventures almost 30 years after its original broadcast, bringing The Omega Factor to the 21st century.
3.1 Under Glass by Roy Gill
Adam is moving on with his life, but a new relationship tests him in unexpected ways. Anne's dealings with a gallery lead her to a macabre exhibit and its owner's even more macabre fate. Meanwhile, Morag tries desperately to send a warning...
Ambition has a price, and what is trapped will not stay trapped forever…
3.2 Let Us Play by Natasha Gerson
Anne is called by an old acquaintance at Glasgow University, concerned about student welfare. An online developer is employing young people to work on new apps, but their screen-time is having disturbing side-effects.
Soon, Adam is caught in a deadly and addictive game. One where the unwary player has much more to lose than a life…
3.3 Phantom Pregnancy by Louise Jameson
Doyle presents Anne with a psychic prodigy and takes a special interest in her progress. But Adhara is a vulnerable young woman, far from home, and Adam has concerns over Department 7's duty of care.
As Adhara's condition becomes apparent, Adam's health declines. Only Morag knows the true connection - can she reach out and save her friend?
3.4 Drawn to the Dark by Phil Mulryne
Something is buried under Edinburgh's streets. A dangerous legacy, centuries old. Anne tries to protect the innocents, while Morag and Adam sense a darkness, long-imprisoned, on the verge of release.
But they are not the only ones to feel it. Drexel has returned, and he plans to rise up more powerful than ever before...

Dr Anne Reynolds finds her life's work under threat as Department 7 faces review. Is there really any place for paranormal investigation in government?

In more new beginnings, the 11th Day of Big Finishmas will be sure to delight Torchwood fans. You can now get Forgotten Lives starring Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper and Kai Owen as Rhys Williams, at £2.99 on download.
It has been four years since the Miracle, and Gwen and Rhys's lives have gone back to normal, very normal. They're raising their daughter (they've got pictures they'd be only too happy to show you), they're living in a nice house, and they're almost on top of the laundry.
Captain Jack Harkness has been missing from the world and their lives for a long time. But late one night the phone rings, and they're summoned to an isolated part of North Wales. The Bryn Offa Nursing Home contains a dark secret, an alien threat, and someone who really shouldn't be there.
Gwen and Rhys are about to discover that Torchwood stays with you for the rest of your life.
