For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Cover artwork, cast and story details are today revealed for the forthcoming second box set in the ongoing Gallifrey: War Room saga, due for release in September from Big Finish Productions.
With Gallifrey at war, whoever runs the War Room will determine the future of the Time Lords...
The stellar cast of this epic box set also includes the return of Chris Jarman (as Rasmus), Carolyn Pickles (as Ollistra), Beth Chalmers (as Veklin) and Seán Carlsen (as fan-favourite Narvin), and introduces Laurence Olivier Award nominee Faith Omole (as Cresta).
The War Room co-ordinates the fight against the Daleks, but there is a battle for control. Rival Cardinals Rasmus and Ollistra manipulate Leela, Veklin and the General, seeking Rassilon’s favour. And beyond Gallifrey, Narvin and the Resistance are making their own moves to stop the Time War…
The four character-focused episodes are:
Collaborators by Katharine Armitage
Gallifrey and the Resistance are in a race to secure a vital alliance. But playing politics means secrets, lies and betrayal… and Leela, caught in the middle, must try to rescue honour from chaos.
Remnants by Georgia Cook
A distress call from a Gallifreyan outpost brings the General, Rasmus and Veklin into contact with weapons of the Time War from both sides. Trapped, young Time Lord Cresta fights for her life against a relentless foe.
Transference by Fio Trethewey
When a promising scientist is injured and his new technology stolen, Ollistra sets Leela on the trail. Her hunt takes her outside the Citadel to Lowtown, where a shock awaits.
Narvin has returned to Gallifrey. But in trying to help his kin, he risks more than he knows.
Ambition’s Debt by Katharine Armitage
Tensions run high in the War Room as the battle for control intensifies. A world has gone missing, the Daleks are too quiet, and something new lurks in the shadows…
A dangerous plan is set in motion with the potential to change everything.
Producer Heather Challands said: “We're back again at the heart of Gallifreyan politics during the Time War. Things are looking up; Leela is carving out her place and has found a kinship with the General, Narvin is out there and fighting for the Resistance, and there are always new opportunities to fight the Daleks. But danger lies everywhere and no one says what they really mean. It's the War Room. Things can change at any moment. You're never on a sure footing."
“I'm delighted to be back with the next part of our four box-set epic – this is a range that I have a lot of love for. We've got some terrific scripts performed by a marvellous company, led by Louise Jameson and Ken Bones. There's a new character, Cresta, played by Faith Omole, and all of our recognisable characters go through their own journey as they navigate the War for their own ends.”
