We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.
The artwork for our forthcoming Main Range trilogy can be revealed today. Jessica Martin returns as the punk werewolf circus performer first seen in 1988's Doctor Who TV episode, The Greatest Show in the Galaxy, opposite Sylvester McCoy's Seventh Doctor.
The people of Gokroth live in fear of the monsters in the forest. Creatures with scales and fur, teeth and claws. But worse than these, perhaps, is the strange doctor who does unspeakable, unholy work in the high castle on the mountain…
A doctor who’s about to receive a visit from an off-worlder. Mags, formerly of the Psychic Circus. A native of the planet Vulpana… with a monstrous secret of her own.
In the second release of the Mags trilogy, we’ll be returning to Mags’ homeworld of Vulpana in The Moons of Vulpana written by Emma Reeves.
The Doctor has returned Mags, formerly of the Psychic Circus, to her native world: Vulpana.
Not the savage Vulpana that Mags was taken from, but Vulpana in an earlier era. The Golden Millennium – when the Four Great Wolf Packs, each devoted to one of the planet’s four moons, oversaw the height of Vulpanan civilisation. A time when the noblest families of the Vulpanan aristocracy found themselves in need of new blood…
A golden age, that’s about to come to a violent end!
And in the final tale of the trilogy, the Doctor and Mags are reunited with companion Ace played by Sophie Aldred, in one of the most dangerous locations in the galaxy in An Alien Werewolf in London by Alan Barnes.
A space-time summons brings the TARDIS to the strangest place Mags has yet visited. A haven for the freakiest freaks and the weirdest weirdoes: Camden Lock, London, in the early 1990s.
But there’s a reason why former TARDIS traveller Ace has brought the old gang back together. She’s on a mission to rescue an alien being, held prisoner in a massive mansion…
A mission that can’t possibly go wrong. Can it?
Script editor, Alan Barnes, told us more about bringing back Mags as a fully-fledged companion: “When we first met Mags the werewolf in The Greatest Show in the Galaxy, she was the travelling companion of another space adventurer, the Captain. She was such an engaging character that it seemed unfair that she didn't go off with the Doctor in the TARDIS at the end, it would have been so 'right', dramatically speaking. It would have opened up some really interesting story possibilities, too: how would it work, having someone who might turn into a savage beast as a companion?!
“So reuniting Mags with the Doctor was on my 'to do' list for years and years and I was determined to make it happen before I stopped being script editor of the Main Range. And thankfully, the stars aligned!”
These three releases will be the last Alan is involved with as script editor after working on the Doctor Who Main Range for the last five years. His work has been amazing and he will be missed!
