Out on Tuesday was the opening chapter of Restoration, a new series of Blake’s 7 adventures.

Also released on Tuesday was the novel, eBook and audiobook Blake’s 7 – Uprising, written by Christopher Cooper and narrated by Stephen Grief.

Blake persuades the Liberator crew to join an uprising on the planet Istria, a vital supplier of food to the Federation. He hopes to hit the Federation where it hurts – and send a powerful message of unity to rebel groups everywhere. But with the odds stacking up against him, and Space Commander Travis in hot pursuit, even Blake starts to wonder who he can trust. Is he right to put so much faith in the Istrian rebels and their mysterious hired mercenary? It's clear that Jade is a deadly killer a secret past, but what is her hidden agenda – and how has Gan fallen so completely under her spell?

The Time War is almost upon us and the Master is ready… and not even the Doctor will be able to stop him. As announced on MondaySir Derek Jacobi will reprise the role of the War Master opposite Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor in the third series of The War Master audio adventures made in association with BBC Studios.

In The War Master: Rage of the Time Lords, four new stories explore the Master’s exploits in the Time War, and we can't wait! 

It’s the end of the world… and it's starting in Cardiff! Huge changes are happening in the second release of Torchwood series 6: God Among Us. Read the news on Wednesday to find out who’s joining the team, and what awaits Torchwood this February.

The story details, cover art and trailer of the sixth series release Torchwood: God Among Us 2 are out now. Norton Folgate rejoins Torchwood, Andy and Yvonne get very close indeed, and the world is truly going to hell…

Norton Folgate’s come from the 1950s to warn Torchwood it’s the end of the world. He might have a point – there’s an alien god wandering the city, and a sinister force manipulating events behind the scenes. Where are all the homeless people going? And why doesn’t it stop raining?

We were delighted to discover this week that ATA Girl has been nominated for the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2019 in the Best Podcast or Online Audio Drama category.

The series is a dramatization based on the lives of the Air Transport Auxiliary, the brave female pilots who helped move planes across the country. They were also the first women in the country to earn equal pay, alongside their male counterparts.

The final details were confirmed on Saturday for our new trilogy kicking off this year’s Doctor Who Main Range releases. The Fifth Doctor, Tegan and Turlough are joined in a Big Finish first by Kamelion, played by legendary impressionist Jon Culshaw.

The Fifth Doctor returns to the Main Range this month, and he’s joined by a companion who many thought long gone. Kamelion, the robot who could change shape, was set to be one of the most exciting companions of the 1980s. Operated by computer technology on the studio floor, it was a television production first, however, the opportunity was cut short by the tragic death of its operator, Mike Power.

But now Kamelion is back! This unexplored chapter of Doctor Who history will be uncovered in three new releases starting this month with Devil in the Mist by Cavan Scott.

And that’s the news this week. Keep in the know by following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
