We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.
National treasure Nicholas Parsons will be guest-starring in the second series of Terrahawks - coming April 2016!
Blasting back into action in 2016, Terrahawks: Series 2 continues the adventures of Dr Tiger Ninestein (Jeremy Hitchen) and his team, who use their incredible fighting machines to defend the Earth from android Queen Zelda and her army of monsters. But the second series of audio escapades will introduce a new threat to the world – one played by the legendary Nicholas Parsons!
Nicholas, the beloved presenter of gameshows Just a Minute and Sale of the Century, is well known to Anderson fans for his role as Sheriff Tex Tucker in pre-Supermarionation hit Four Feather Falls.
After a 56 year absence, he's returned to the recording studio to voice Nickel-plate Starsons - host of intergalactic gameshow The Sale of the Galaxy. But Starsons isn't just a gameshow host... he has history with Queen of the planet Guk - Zelda (played by Denise Bryer - Nicholas' ex-wife).
Other Anderson alumni appearing in Series 2 include Space Precinct star Richard James, taking on the role of Jeremy Vile in a free-to-download bonus episode – adapted from the Terrahawks Live sessions at Andercon 2015.

Sale of the Galaxy by Andrew T Smith, Jamie Anderson

Big Finish Executive Producer Nicholas Briggs says, 'I’m a huge fan of Gerry Anderson’s great TV shows and have always wanted to make a series based on the great man’s work. We’ve really enjoyed working with Jamie Anderson and the original cast to produce the new Terrahawks series launched earlier this year, which has produced a fantastic response from Anderson fans around the world. Terrahawks is a glorious slice of authentic Anderson, packed with larger-than-life characters, exciting stories and great, futuristic technology and we intend to make the next series even better than the first one!'
