For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Steed and Tara King are back for three top-secret missions in a brand-new box set of The Avengers full-cast audio dramas, due for release in March 2023 from Big Finish Productions.
Julian Wadham and Emily Woodward star as the dashing British spy duo in the latest volume of audio adventures based on TV Comic’s original strips. Christopher Benjamin also returns as the agents’ superior, Mother.
And in the final story, This Train Terminates Here, legendary presenter and comedian Paul O'Grady MBE guest stars as Septimus Crump — a vengeful station master with an axe to grind!
The Avengers: The Comic Strip Adaptations Volume 7: Steed & Tara King is now available to pre-order for just £19.99 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) or £16.99 (download only), exclusively here. Alternatively, this box set can be pre-ordered with Volume 6: Steed & Mrs Peel together in a bundle from just £33.
The three quintessentially British adventures are as follows:
Paul O'Grady said: “I’m playing the villain, Septimus Crump, who’s a complete maniac and a diabolical mastermind. He’s a typical Avengers villain. He wants revenge — as they always do! He ends up tying Steed and Tara to the railway track, which is fantastic! It’s real good fun to do.
“One of my best friends, Linda Thorson, who happens to have originally played Tara King (and also came in to do a Big Finish) said I must do it! To be in something to do with The Avengers is my idea of heaven.
“I’ve been a fan of The Avengers from day one. I still watch them now and I know all of the lines! It’s nice that I can actually say now that I’ve been in The Avengers — which of course makes me very happy.”
Producer and Director Samuel Clemens added: “Working with Paul is so much fun. His wit, charm and devilish humour seep into this episode. He slotted into this show like a fine champagne that Steed and Tara King would swoon over.
“He knows the series so well and was referencing episodes all the way through the recording day. The overwhelming memory of the day was laughter. We all just had such a good time and Julian and Emily expressed just how wonderful it was to have him be a part of this episode.”
All the above prices include the special pre-order discount and are subject to change after general release. From November 2022, new pre-order prices will apply for unreleased box sets.
