A Wild Goose Chase Through Thyme!
Doctor Who star Katy Manning narrates an exciting brand-new audiobook, Iris Wildthyme and Friends: Enter Wildthyme, released today by Big Finish Productions!
This 11-hour audio adventure – in which the eccentric time-traveller chases stolen goods through time and space – was originally published in 2011 as a traditional novel by writer (and creator of Iris Wildthyme) Paul Magrs.
Meet Iris Wildthyme, transtemporal adventuress, who travels the multiverse with her best friend Panda, in the Celestial Omnibus - a double-decker bus that is a bit smaller on the inside than it is on the outside...
When a mysterious glass jar is stolen by dog pirates from a spaceship orbiting Earth, it seems that everyone wants to get their hands on it - from the hypnotic Antony Marvelle and his dog pirates, to Iris Wildthyme and her new friend Simon. The chase will take them from 19th Century Montmatre to the perplexing world of Hyspero via the Hammersmith Odeon and several rifts in the Very Fabric of time...
**Contains references to alcohol and smoking.
Iris Wildthyme and Friends: Enter Wildthyme is now available to own for just £9.99 (as a download only), exclusively here. The remaining two audiobooks in this collection, Wildthyme Beyond and The Polythene Terror (due for release in March and April 2023), are also available to pre-order at the same price.
Katy Manning said: “These books are packed with even more wackiness and many more voices [than before] and I truly loved the challenge every step of the way. I’m truly so grateful to have done these incredible books.”
Producer Xanna Eve Chown said: “Enter Wildthyme is offbeat, funny, and bursting with amazing and outlandish characters – each one given a different voice by the incredible Katy Manning.
“Katy worked so hard on these Iris books and really went above and beyond to get everything right! She's an absolute marvel. This book is just the start of a madcap series of adventures, so I hope everyone gets on board – it's definitely worth the ride!”
Big Finish listeners can save money by purchasing all three 2023 audiobooks from the Iris Wildthyme and Friends collections together in a bundle for just £25 (download only).
Alternatively, this trio is also available as part of a 5-release Iris Wildthyme bundle including two adventures read by Louise Jameson, originally released in May 2021, for just £40.
