More details for the December release in the Main Range have been revealed: The Hunting Ground is a Sixth Doctor Scandi-noir story with a Doctor Who twist for our festive listening. Plus we start to look ahead to the Main Range in 2019.
Out for release this December, the Sixth Doctor, Colin Baker, returns for a solo adventure, and this time he’s exploring a somewhat Scandinavian scenario, just in time for Christmas!
In a terrifying tale by writer AK Benedict, The Hunting Ground is set in the present day, and particularly for fans of crime thrillers, this isn’t a story to miss.
The Doctor arrives in present day Iceland, and receives a frosty reception from Inspector Yrsa Kristjansdottir when he becomes the chief suspect in a murder enquiry. But the Doctor knows that the real killer is of extraterrestrial origin.
Joining forces with Yrsa, the Doctor goes in pursuit of a ruthless alien that is hunting humans for sport. Yrsa unearths a dark conspiracy which reaches back into her own past.
Determined to expose the truth and prevent further deaths, the Doctor and Yrsa soon find themselves running for their lives, prey on the hunting ground.
The Sixth Doctor is joined in this Scandi-noir thriller by Yrsa, played by Amy Beth Hayes, who listeners may recognise from Mr Selfridge, Shameless, or another nordic series Lilyhammer. Could she become a new companion?
