Expect danger, deception and Daleks this December, as The War Doctor Begins returns for a three hour epic from Big Finish.
Set for release in December 2021, today the story details are revealed for Warbringer, the next chapter in the story of Jonathon Carley’s War Doctor. Adventuring alongside cyborg Case (Ajjaz Awad), Commander Tamasan (Adèle Anderson), Agent Commander Veklin (Beth Chalmers), War Leader Andarta (Angela Bruce) and Captain Rondig (Stephen Frost), the Doctor’s disavowed incarnation becomes embroiled in war as he faces the Daleks (Nicholas Briggs) once more.
The Doctor is no more. In his place, a warrior, finally joining the Time War between the Daleks and Gallifrey.
But how far will he go to end the conflict? What lines will he cross? How much of himself will he sacrifice?
The War Doctor is beginning to find out who he is…
Consequences by Timothy X Atack
The War Doctor and Veklin crash to a ravaged planet. On the fringes of the Time War, this world has its own battles raging. Elsewhere, a survivor works out how she came to be here.
But these newcomers are harbingers of something terrible, following in their wake…
Destroyer by Andrew Smith
Trapped on a world that worships war, the War Doctor finds himself fulfilling an ancient prophecy – could he be the Warbringer of legend?
His new ally Case is testing her abilities too. And both will be called on to fight when the Daleks come…
Saviour by Jonathan Morris
The truth of how events on Tharius were set in motion is revealed. On a mission to destroy a Dalek Harvester vessel, the War Doctor discovers a new breed of Dalek.
Whatever action he takes next, we have seen the consequences – and they are devastating for everyone.
Producer David Richardson said: “Jonathon Carley made such a confident and assured debut in The War Doctor Begins, and I was thrilled by the (much deserved) universal praise for his performance as the young War Doctor.
“If you thought that was good, then Warbringer might just blow your socks off – a massive three-hour tale full of peril and world building and tragedy. And, because this is a series about time travel, it’s not always the case that actions are followed by consequences. Sometimes the consequences come first…”
Script editor Matt Fitton added: “I'm very excited to hear these brilliant scripts released at last, having read and re-read them so many times. After his striking debut, this is like the War Doctor's concept album – one world, and its people, exposed to the horror of the Time War and the worst the Daleks can inflict on them.
“Telling the story in a suitably temporally compromised way, and following the Doctor's ally Case as she's caught up in the conflict, Warbringer gives us a terrifying and unique perspective of what a Time War really means.”
