For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Journey to the Third Doctor’s era of psychedelic fashion, bouffant hair and 1970s gadgetry in an action-packed full-cast audio drama, due for release in October 2022 by Big Finish Productions.
Tim Treloar returns as the dapper Third Doctor — originated on television by Jon Pertwee — in a colourful Season 11 adventure, alongside Sadie Miller as Sarah Jane Smith and Jon Culshaw as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart.
In this six-part tale, written by Alan Barnes, the iconic TARDIS team encounter an alien space messiah known as Kaleidoscope — played by classically-trained actor Gerran Howell (Suspicion, Young Dracula, Catch-22) in his Big Finish debut. Plus, for the first time in an audio drama, the Doctor will take to the road in the Whomobile – the silver flying car which belonged (in real life) to Jon Pertwee himself.
Doctor Who — The Third Doctor Adventures: Kaleidoscope is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition 3-disc CD box set (+ download for just £19.99) or a digital download only (for just £16.99), exclusively here.
Producer Heather Challands said: “It's always a pleasure to return to the 1970s with the Third Doctor and UNIT! This time, the Third Doctor is joined by Sarah Jane Smith and the Brigadier in another epic!
“It was wonderful to see the response to our seven-part series The Annihilators and we're following it up with a six-parter that promises to be no less majestic in scale or location with a strong supporting cast and a wonderful script by Alan Barnes. I wish I could tell you more but that’s a secret for now..."
Praise for The Third Doctor Adventures: The Annihilators:
“The latest Third Doctor release hits the mark with a tale of adventure, thrills and knowing hints at an exciting future.”
We Made This Network
“Nicholas Briggs’s script is pacy, gripping and intriguing. This, combined with the stellar efforts of the entire cast, makes The Annihilators one of the strongest releases of 2022 so far.”
"The Annihilators is a great tale, with plenty of action, period detail and malodorous monstrosities.”
“From its script and performances to the sound design and music, The Annihilators is nothing short of a pitch-perfect pastiche of one of Doctor Who's greatest seasons.”
“From the opening titles to the barnstorming cliffhangers, The Annihilators delivers a superb sense of the 1970 series born of obvious love and affection.”
