For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
They’re Eighth Doctor Adventures, but probably not the ones you were expecting! Paul McGann returns in five new full-cast audio dramas, due for release in late 2023 from Big Finish Productions.
Since January 2001, the Eighth Doctor has enjoyed an extended run of adventures on audio with a whole host of companions. Now, the TARDIS takes us back in time – to meet a new fellow traveller, and an unexplored era of the Doctor’s timeline.
Jaye Griffiths debuts as the noblewoman, Lady Audacity Montague, who is about to be propelled from Regency England into the far future and the war between the Cybermen and Vogans.
Producer David Richardson said: “We’re exploring a different era of the Eighth Doctor’s adventures, when he made a new friend. We’re long before Lucie Miller, the Ravenous, Baker Street or the Time War and we’ve got the wonderful Jaye Griffiths bringing Audacity to life brilliantly. Hang on? (I hear you cry) Didn’t Jaye recently play Hieronyma Friend in Time War: Cass? Ssshh... Spoilers...”

Praise for The Eighth Doctor Adventures:
“There’s not a weak link among these stories, and each is stronger and richer than the last.”
– We Are Cult
“With the strength of both Connections and the previous What Lies Inside? it makes the wait until next November for the next set seem achingly long.”
– Blogtor Who
“The scripts are sharp and the action fast-paced. The Eighth Doctor continues to entertain and intrigue in equal measure.”
