The trans-temporal adventuress returns this August for eight all new stories of Celestial Omnibus travel!
Ahead of her appearance in next month’s anthology release - The Worlds of Big Finish - Big Finish Productions is pleased to reveal that trans-temporal adventuress Iris Wildthyme will be returning for Iris Wildthyme: Wildthyme Reloaded, a brand-new series of audio adventures in August!
“Did you miss us?” says Iris creator Paul Magrs. “Did you really think we were gone and never coming back…? Hahaha! Never! We're back! She's back! And she's larger than life and daft as a brush and drunk as a skunk and just spoiling for a big new series of Big Finish adventures... and how great is that? A little jiggery and pokery with the format and we get even more variety, more adventures in a single magical box and further magnificent wild times for all! Bottoms up, lovely listeners - and see you in August!”
The new series consists of eight, thirty-minute episodes, pitting Iris against extraterrestrial werewolves, ancient oracles, haunted planets… and even the dreaded Scorchies!
“The Worlds of Big Finish proved to us - not just Katy and Paul, but also Nick and Jason - that there were still places to go with Iris. A new companion means a new dynamic, and the half-hour format allows for her adventures to be even bigger and bolder than ever before! Her exploits are as bonkers as ever, but full of heart, and mark an exciting new era for Iris!”
Big Finish veteran Geoffrey Breton joins the series as Iris’s new companion, Captain Turner, who first featured in the short story Old Flames - written by Paul Magrs, who also contributes the final episode of the series. Other writers include James Goss, Nick Campbell, Roy Gill, Mark B. Oliver, Hamish Steele, Cavan Scott and Scott Handcock.
Chris Rankin (Harry Potter’s Percy Weasley), David Warner (Inside No. 9, The Omen, Time Bandits), Nicola Bryant (Doctor Who’s Peri Brown) and Tracey Childs (Howard’s Way, Big Finish's Doctor Who companion Klein) guest star, alongside Big Finish regulars Toby Longworth, Ian Hallard, Charlie Hayes, Lisa Bowerman, Stephen Fewell, Lizzie Hopley and David Blackwell.
Iris Wildthyme: Wildthyme Reloaded will be released in August 2015 and is available to pre-order now at the special discount price of £20 on CD, or £18 on Download.
