For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Hebe Harrison’s best mate joins the TARDIS team in an action-packed box set of full-cast audio dramas, due for release in August 2022 from Big Finish Productions.
The Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker), Mel Bush (Bonnie Langford) and Hebe (Ruth Madeley) — the Time Lord’s first ever wheelchair-using companion — face mind control, a time criminal, and an unspeakable temporal disaster.
In two of three adventures, Coronation Street actress and disability rights advocate Cherylee Houston MBE guest stars as Hebe’s university friend, Elise. But when the pair reunite, Hebe notices something strange.
The expanding time-travelling squad also make the acquaintance of Patricia McBride — a brilliant anthropologist on the verge of a great revelation...
Doctor Who – The Sixth Doctor Adventures: Purity Undreamed is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition 3-disc CD box set (for just £19.99) or digital download (for just £16.99), exclusively here.
The Sixth Doctor heads back to Earth with Mel and Hebe in tow, little dreaming what lies ahead. Accompanied by their new friend, Professor Patricia McBride, alien threats abound, dangers lurk, and the cost of meddling with time is more than anyone is prepared to pay.
Producer Jacqueline Rayner said: “We cracked out the champagne when Ruth Madeley came on board as Hebe and corks were popping again when, to our delight, the wonderful Cherylee Houston agreed to be part of the Sixth Doctor’s world as Hebe’s old friend Elise.
“Cherylee Houston is one of the UK’s best and most recognisable disabled actors who’s also an incredible spokesperson and campaigner within the industry. It was just brilliant to work with her as part of our little ‘UNIT-esque family’. To everyone’s delight, during the period when we were recording, she actually became Cherylee Houston MBE — honoured for her services to drama and people with disabilities — and goodness she deserves it!”
Cherylee Houston MBE added: “I absolutely loved being involved in the Hebe box set. To have exciting adventures with such a phenomenal cast was beyond a treat! I think it’s every actor’s dream to go on a Doctor Who adventure where you get to fight aliens and save the world. Who wouldn’t want to do that? It was so much fun!”
