Doctor Who – Philip Hinchcliffe Presents: The Genesis Chamber

Doctor Who – Philip Hinchcliffe Presents: The Genesis Chamber

6 April 2016

Coming September 2016 – the first of two new Fourth Doctor stories, devised by former Doctor Who television series producer Philip Hinchcliffe!

Hot on the heels of the reveal of the Fourth Doctor Adventures Series 6, Big Finish is pleased to announce a new pair of releases from Philip Hinchcliffe, producer of Doctor Who from 1975-1977. The two new titles will both star Tom Baker and Louise Jameson, reuniting the fan-favourite team behind the classic episodes The Face of Evil, The Robots of Death and The Talons of Weng-Chaing.

'We loved working on the first Philip Hinchcliffe Presents box set,' says producer David Richardson, 'and both stories were very well received. So I was delighted when Philip came back with more ideas, and that he was keen to reunite with Marc Platt who wrote the script. Louise Jameson told me that The Genesis Chamber is one of the best scripts she’s read at Big Finish. I agree with her - it’s a huge Doctor Who story, and yet with so many lovely, delicate scenes too. I loved listening to it during recording, and I’ve no doubt the final edits will be astonishing.'

Doctor Who: The Genesis Chamber, a six-part adventure adapted by Marc Platt, is released in September. This dark tale takes place on a human colony world, where city dwellers rely on advanced technology to create their children, while shunning the primitives who live outside of their city. But neither group realise that a third force threatens their very existence…

Co-starring against Tom and Louise is impressionist Jon Culshaw (Deadringers, The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot, Doctor Who: The Kingmaker/You Are the Doctor and Other Stories) as DeRosa Janz, a scheming crime lord whose family has taken over the colony. Also appearing are Hannah Genesius, Jemma Churchill, Dan Li, Vernon Dobtcheff, Arthur Hughes, Elliot Chapman and Gyuri Sarossy.

The release will be followed by a new four-part adventure in 2017.

Doctor Who – Philip Hinchcliffe Presents: The Genesis Chamber can be pre-ordered for just £25 on CD or £20 to download, with the second release availablefor just £20 on CD or £15 to download; with pre-orders granting a £5 saving on the price of each release.

Both titles are available to pre-order together as part of a the Doctor Who - Philip Hinchcliffe Presents 2 & 3 Bundle for just £40 on CD and £30 to download, with both bundle prices increasing by £10 after release. As with the majority of Big Finish releases, complimentary digital downloads of the releases are included with all CD orders; allowing you to enjoy the stories as soon as they are released.

The first box-set of Doctor Who: Philip Hinchcliffe Presents is still available to order from the Big Finish website, featuring two full-cast stories The Ghosts of Gralstead and The Devil's Armada.
