We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.
For Valentine’s Day, what better than a love story? The latest release in Big Finish’s Doctor Who – Short Trips range is a romantic tale set in Paris, the city of lights, narrated by Frazer Hines.
Doctor Who – Short Trips are short stories, many written by some of Doctor Who’s most popular authors from the worlds of television, print, comics and audio, and read by a host of favourite Big Finish actors. Their low pricing makes them a perfect introduction to the world of Big Finish audio.
For all that Jamie has seen and done in his travels, nothing quite prepared him for the magic of being a film star.
During a Parisian holiday in 1908, he and the Doctor are taken in by film director Céline Tessier and soon find themselves immersed in the world of the silver screen.
However, Jamie will discover that - in show business - where there is delight, one must also expect one’s share of tragedy.
Producer, Alfie Shaw said: “Deleted Scenes is gorgeous. I must confess, I got a bit weepy reading the first draft! Angus has pulled together a thing of beauty and Frazer’s performance lifts the whole story off the page wondrously. Entertaining, educational, and with a strong chance it’ll make you cry. What more could you ask for?”
Writer Angus Dunican added: “At its core, Deleted Scenes is a love story. There is romance between Jamie and a gifted film director named Céline, the love and passion that she has for her art, and the difficult choices that the Doctor must make when his compassion for the pair of them leads to trouble.
“I'm immensely fortunate to have been given the opportunity to write this trans-temporal, bohemian fairytale and especially grateful to Lisa Bowerman for her generous and sensitive direction and, of course, Frazer Hines. Listening to it being recorded and hearing Jamie and the Doctor come alive again in his voice was nothing short of thrilling.”
Doctor Who – Short Trips: Deleted Scenes is now available to download exclusively from the Big Finish website for just £2.99.
Big Finish listeners can save money with a bundle of the Short Trips range and get the 12 stories from volume 10 for just £30 – that’s a whole year’s worth of adventures, including the already-released story read by Katy Manning, The Infinite Today.
