The Big Finish Roundup

3 June 2018

A new term for Class, the cover of one of our Big Finish Originals revealed and the return of Survivors… don’t miss out on any of the news in the Big Finish roundup.

The artwork for the fourth of our Big Finish Originals has been released! Coming out in September 2018, Shilling & Sixpence Investigate finds David Warner and Celia Imrie united in a murder mystery like no other.

Shilling & Sixpence Investigate

Star Cops came back on Tuesday with a new series on audio from Big Finish Productions. Created by Chris Boucher (Blake's 7, Doctor Who), nine episodes of British sci-fi TV series Star Cops were originally broadcast on BBC2 in 1987.

On Wednesday Turlough encountered one of the most dangerous environments in the known universe in this month’s Doctor Who Short Trips… an intergalactic public school! Doctor Who – Short Trips: Trap For Fools is out now.

On Thursday we were delighted to announce that the Doctor Who spin off Class, created by Young Adult author Patrick Ness, returns in six new audio tales.


Set during the television series, Class is back in session with the original cast. Greg Austin plays Charlie Smith, Fady Elsayed plays Ram Singh, Sophie Hopkins plays April MacLean, Vivian Oparah plays Tanya Adeola, Jordan Renzo plays Matteusz Andrzejewski and Katherine Kelly plays Miss Andrea Quill.

Doctor Who Companion Chronicle Fear of the Daleks is available for the whole of June at £2.99 on download. A tale from the Second Doctor’s time featuring his mortal enemies the Daleks is available at £2.99 on download for the whole of June. Read by Wendy Padbury (her debut Companion Chronicle) as companion Zoe Heriot, with Nicholas Briggs as the Daleks.

Why has Zoe Heriot been having nightmares about the Daleks? Who is the Doctor, a mysterious man from her past? When an evil scientist hijacks her mind to control a galaxy-conquering weapon, Zoe must stop him. First, she and the Doctor will face an enemy they had thought destroyed forever.

And on Saturday we announced that recording has wrapped on Series 8 of Big Finish’s audio drama of Terry Nation’s Survivors, and here are more details on the continued struggles for the survivors of The Death…

Four new stories from the world of Survivors arrive in Series Eight out in November this year.

Village of Dust by Roland Moore

Survivors Series Eight sees actors Carolyn Seymour and Lucy Fleming reprising their TV roles as Abby Grant and Jenny. Helen Goldwyn also returns as Ruth and George Watkins returns as Craig – both characters who appeared in Survivors Series 6.

Plus actress Wendy Craig, who listeners will recognise from TV shows Nanny, Butterflies, ...And Mother Makes Three and ...And Mother Makes Five guest stars, and in a major twist, Joel James Davison (the son of Fifth Doctor Peter Davison) joins the ongoing series as Peter Grant, Abby’s long-lost son. Could it be that Abby and Peter will finally meet?

And that’s the news, stay tuned for all the latest on the Big Finish site, and on our social media Facebook Twitter and Instagram.
