Two brand new stories for you today as we present Doctor Who: The Seeds of War and Doctor Who - The Companion Chronicles: The Scorchies - the latter featuring Jo Grant taking on villainous singing puppets!
Doctor Who: The Seeds of War is the last in the current main range trilogy of tales starring Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor (seen on TV from 1984-1986) alongside Bonnie Langford as Mel (companion on TV from 1986-1987). It finds the pair encountering a beleagured human race, recovering for a long and hard-fought war - but has the threat gone or is it merely biding its time?
The Seeds of War is written by Matt Fitton and Nicholas Briggs, directed by Barnaby Edwards and features amongst its guest cast Ray Fearon (Julius Caesar), Ony Uhiara (Much Ado About Nothing) and Stuart Organ (seen in TV Doctor Who Dragonfire but perhaps best known as Grange Hill's Mr Robson!).
Also now available for download is Doctor Who - The Companion Chronicles: The Scorchies. The latest outing for Katy Manning, she stars as Jo Grant (the role she played on TV opposite Jon Pertwee's Third Doctor) in the story of an invasion by aliens who look like puppets - and really love a good showtune. Katy takes on a vast array of voices alongside the massively talented Melvyn 'It Ain't Half Hot Mum' Hayes to create a Companion Chronicle unlike anything you've heard before!
Both of these stories are available to download now, and CD copies are being posted out today. And don't forget: if you've ordered the CD, you get the download absolutely free!
Nick Briggs and Benji Clifford present the Big Finish News, Listeners' Emails, Randomoid Selectortron... everything you need to know about the audio world of Big Finish. Special guest: Christel Dee (presenter of Doctor Who: The Fan Show).
