For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Big Finish is getting ready to celebrate the festive season with a terrific trio of tinsel-tinted tales, due for release in December 2023.
The Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) and his new companion, Lady Audacity Montague (Jaye Griffiths) will be spending Christmas in London and Edinburgh this year, in three brand-new full-cast audio adventures.
Midwinter is a magical time – a season of hope and renewal. A time to spend with friends.
But the season also brings cold and darkness, and the TARDIS travellers are about to experience three very different winter’s tales…
Joining the series regulars are guest stars Jason Watkins (Line of Duty, The Crown, Doctor Who: Nightmare in Silver) as Al Norton, Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street, Strictly Come Dancing, Doctor Who: Last Christmas) as Chief Elf, David Robb (Downton Abbey, Wolf Hall, First Among Equals) as Sir Donald Shaw, and Nickolas Grace (Robin of Sherwood, Brideshead Revisited) as Eldridge Brinkwood, a ghost story writer and broadcaster from 1947.
Doctor Who – The Eighth Doctor Adventures: In the Bleak Midwinter is now available to pre-order for just £19.99 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) or £16.99 (download only), exclusively here.
The three hour-long Yuletide adventures are:
Twenty-Four Doors In December by John Dorney
The TARDIS land in London on the first of December, and the Doctor decides to treat his companion to a proper Christmas holiday… even down to dragging out the Baker Street Advent Calendar. But elsewhere in the city a department store Santa named Al Norton is starting to have a very unnerving month. He’s on a collision course with the time travellers. Is it going to be a Happy Christmas?
The Empty Man by Tim Foley
Eldridge Brinkwood, a scribe of scary stories, who is preparing to share another of his tales on Christmas Eve. Except this is a horror like no other. The Doctor and his new friend have stirred something in the dark, something ruthless and relentless. And the Empty Man must feast.
Winter of the Demon by Roy Gill
The TARDIS brings the travellers to Victorian Edinburgh. Industrialist Donald Shaw plans to transform the city with electric light, but people are dying, found horribly burned... What ancient power has Shaw summoned? Can the Doctor and co. prevent the Winter of the Demon?
Doctor Who – The Eighth Doctor Adventures: Audacity (due for release in November) and In the Bleak Midwinter are each available to pre-order for just £19.99 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) or £16.99 (download only) per title.
