For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
In space, no one can hear you scream – even if you're eagerly awaiting for the arrival of the next series of adventures featuring the Star Cops!
Star Cops – the brainchild of the late Doctor Who and Blake's 7 writer Chris Boucher – first aired in 1987 on BBC Two. Set in the near-future of 2027, when space travel is commonplace, it followed the crime-fighting activities of the International Space Police Force.
The show was originally broadcast in weekly instalments, and now Big Finish is recapturing that feel with a brand-new six-part mini-series event, Blood Moon, being released monthly between January and June 2024.
Expect murder, kidnappings, and exciting cliff-hangers as original cast members David Calder (Commander Nathan Spring), Trevor Cooper (Inspector Colin Devis), and Linda Newton (Acting Chief Superintendent Pal Kenzy) return to investigate alongside Philip Olivier (Inspector Paul Bailey) and Lynsey Murrell (Inspector Alice Okoro).
Please note: the collector’s edition CDs are strictly limited to a pressing of just 1,000 per episode.
Script editor Andrew Smith, who had a police career spanning four decades, said: “Star Cops is always a treat to come back to. The concept, established by the late Chris Boucher in his 1987 TV series, provides a rich dramatic canvas for us.
“There are so many stories that can be told about policing near-Earth space in the near future, stories that are told in a gritty, realistic way, and the writers never fail to deliver.
"And of course we have such wonderful regular characters, including our three leads from the original TV series, to tell those stories through. Nathan Spring, Colin Devis and Pal Kenzy are a pleasure to write for, especially with David Calder, Trevor Cooper and Linda Newton back in those original roles.”
It’s the near future, and mankind has expanded its presence in space. Maintaining law and order beyond Earth is the responsibility of the International Space Police Force, known colloquially as the Star Cops. Their leader is Commander Nathan Spring.
A Star Cop investigation into a murder on Earth leads to an amazing revelation. The team’s resilience is tested as the fallout affects their next cases.
