The Big Finish Roundup

10 March 2019

A week of celebrations, new stories, awards and new boxsets awaited us this week. Don’t miss out on any of the news and releases in the Big Finish Roundup.

In celebration of International Women’s Day, eight incredible, powerful and wonderful women from the Doctor Who universe come together for an audio box set like no other. The Eighth of March includes the debut of the Paternoster Gang, the meeting of Leela and River, and two Osgoods – it’s not one to miss!

The Eighth of March came out Friday. Starring Ace (Sophie Aldred) and Professor Bernice Summerfield (Lisa Bowerman); Professor River Song (Alex Kingston) and Leela (Louise Jameson); UNIT-team Kate Stewart (Jemma Redgrave) and Osgood (Ingrid Oliver); and in a Big Finish first, Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh) and her wife Jenny (Catrin Stewart) from The Paternoster Gang

This new box set celebrates these powerful, multifaceted characters in stories very unique to the Doctor Who universe.

Three brand-new adventures with the classic Doctor Who team of Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant are coming this year, as announced on Monday. This 80s dream team will be encountering the legendary Doctor Who villains, the Daleks (last seen on television in this year’s Doctor Who new year special, Resolution).

Emissary of the Daleks cast

The Daleks (voiced by Nicholas Briggs) make their return in the story Emissary of the Daleks, written by Andrew Smith.

Congratulations to the team behind The Martian Invasion of Earth for their win at the Audie Awards, winner of Best Audio Drama of 2018, on Tuesday

'No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man’s…'

A curiosity falls to Earth on Horsell Common, and a nightmare begins. England is laid waste by huge fighting machines, armed with devastating heat rays. Humanity brings its own weapons to bear upon the invaders, but can they be any match?

Trapped in a war of two worlds, one couple battles to survive. Herbert and Amy bear witness to… The Martian Invasion of Earth.

The first five chapters in the Big Finish history of Bernice Summerfield are being revisited with the release of five new audiobook adaptations. The first of these releases, Professor Bernice Summerfield and the Doomsday Manuscript, came out Wednesday.

Narrated by Bernice Summerfield herself, Lisa Bowerman, these audiobooks will take us back to the turn of the millennium unlocking some of the important moments of Benny’s life – at the Braxiatel Collection, her past love, and the birth of her son Peter.

More story details were released Saturday on the return of the Third Doctor, Jo Grant, Liz Shaw and the Brigadier in Volume 5 of The Third Doctor Adventures. Out for release in May we’ll be re-encountering the Primords from the classic TV episode Inferno, and there’s a mysterious invader in the second story…

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