For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
The multi-cultural space detective series is back for more murder, mystery and misdemeanours, in a series of brand-new full-cast audio dramas from Big Finish Productions.
On 6 July 1987, the first episode of the BBC TV sci-fi series Star Cops was broadcast. Starring highly-regarded stage and screen actor David Calder as Commander Nathan Spring, it told the story of the International Space Police Force, investigating crimes as humanity begins to reach out to the stars.
35 years later, the cast of the original series are reunited for six new audio adventures across two box sets, due to be released from November 2022.
Joining David Calder are original series stars Trevor Cooper (as Inspector Colin Devis) and Linda Newton (as newly-promoted Acting Chief Superintendent Pal Kenzy) alongside Philip Olivier, returning as Inspector Paul Bailey.
The volume one box set contains the following exciting full-cast audio adventures:
“I didn’t imagine Nathan, Kenzy and Devis would work together again after the TV series, but it’s been a joy to be back together again, to bring these characters into the audio world and let them fly. It’s a real pleasure to introduce them to new audiences after 35 years.”
Linda Newton agreed: “Being back together is fantastic, particularly working with David and Trevor, it’s like 35 years hasn’t happened. We slot back in to a rapport and repartee.
“Star Cops is The Little Engine That Could – it shouldn’t have died, and it hasn’t died, even Covid can’t do that and after two and a half years of lockdown it’s fantastic we’re back in the studio in time to celebrate the 35th anniversary.”
Trevor Cooper added: “It was so disappointing when Star Cops the TV series was cancelled, so I never imagined the ineffable force of nature that is Colin Devis would still be fighting crime and pushing his luck 35 years later.
“It’s so much fun to be back working with David and Linda, it’s like the Star Cops never stopped. It’s the most space fun you can have without an Orgasmatron!”
