We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.
Landing in your home in July 2020 is the first of four box sets in the new Eighth Doctor Adventures series from Big Finish Productions.
The Doctor swaps outer space for inner London in this forthcoming full cast audio drama, and - unlike the TARDIS - the Time Lord’s house on Baker Street isn’t bigger on the inside, leading to domestic tensions.
Each volume of Doctor Who: Stranded is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition box set (priced at £24.99), or on download (at £19.99).
Paul McGann stars as the Eighth Doctor, with faithful returning companions Helen Sinclair (played by Hattie Morahan) and Liv Chenka (played by Nicola Walker). Doctor Who: Stranded also introduces a new pair to the TARDIS team in the shape of Tania Bell (played by Rebecca Root) and Sergeant Andy Davidson (Tom Price reprising his role from the popular Doctor Who spin-off, Torchwood).
The TARDIS is gone. Stranded in one time and place, the Doctor, Liv and Helen seek refuge in Baker Street. But the house has changed: they now have neighbours – not all of them welcoming. And someone has a dire warning for the future.
The Doctor and friends face their greatest challenge yet: living one day after another, in 2020 London.
Actor Paul McGann said: “It's not our usual fare, so it feels refreshing and somehow wintry. It's dark outside. That time of year when the walls are closing in a bit. It's got the flavour of a bunch of polar explorers stuck on a rock for the winter.
“What I like most about it is the contrast - the whizzing round galaxies and having adventures, and suddenly they're having to share a space and they get cabin fever. And so the Doctor gets a bit bitter about it all. But they're trying to make the best of it. It's good and it's funny as well.”
Producer David Richardson added: “Stranded is a brand new start for the Eighth Doctor Adventures. It's a new setting, bringing in new characters and it has its own distinct tone. There's no epic struggle to save the universe - this is about a group of people living in a house in London in 2020, and their struggles to find a role in this world. Of course there will be aliens and strange threats along the way, but the focus is always on our characters. It was a joy to see how much Paul McGann loved these scripts - some of his favorites out of all the ones we've made.”
