The trailer for the next of our Big Finish Originals arrived on Monday. Alex Kingston leads an all-star cast in Transference, alongside Warren Brown, Wendy Craig, Ingrid Oliver and Robert Whitelock, in this new psychological thriller. A new eight-hour drama (twice the length of a regular Big Finish Originals series), this release has more twists and turns than you can possibly imagine…
Sam Ross (Alex Kingston) is a psychotherapist – she spends her days helping people, but she can barely help herself. She’s still grieving over the recent death of her sister, her mother Barbara offers little support and she’s professionally challenged. One of her clients is Keith (Warren Brown), a man whose life story changes with every session. And Keith has a secret – one that will rock Sam’s world to the core, and place her in the most terrible danger.
The Avengers have more cases to solve! The next volume of The Avengers – The Comic Strip Adaptations Volume 3 – sees John Steed (Julian Wadham) reunited with Tara King (Emily Woodward) in four new assignments.
The Avengers: The Comic Strip Adaptations Volume 3 with Steed and Tara King came out Tuesday.
Three new Tenth Doctor adventures will take us back into history where menacing threats lurk in 1950s London’s smog in an entrancing tale by Roy Gill; we’ll explore dangerous underwater worlds with the Judoon in a thriller by Jenny T Colgan; and James Goss takes the Doctor, Donna and family on their most treacherous journey yet... into the horrifying world of reality television!
It was a big day at Big Finish on Thursday as the first story from the Twelfth Doctor’s era has just been released. The Astrea Conspiracy, part of the Doctor Who Short Trips monthly range, is narrated by Neve McIntosh (who plays Madame Vastra in the Paternoster Gang).
The conspirators sit in Antwerp, plotting to kill King Charles the Second. Aphra Behn’s mission is simple, get former lover William Scot to turn against his treasonous comrades. But her money is running out and the complications don’t stop there. A strange Scottish man arrives at her inn with troubling news.
William Scot is out and the Doctor is in.
