For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
The new era of The First Doctor Adventures continues with a brand-new box set of standalone full-cast audio dramas, due for release in February 2023 from Big Finish Productions.
After showcasing his critically-acclaimed performance in The Outlaws, Stephen Noonan returns as the First Doctor – the role originated by William Hartnell. Lauren Cornelius also brilliantly reprises the role of Dodo Chaplet, as the duo explore two contrasting eras on Earth.
Writer Bob Ayres makes his Big Finish debut with the sinister horror tale, The Demon Song, set in modern-day Camden Town. Then Nicholas Briggs’ The Incherton Incident uncovers an alien conspiracy in a post-war seaside town...
Doctor Who – The First Doctor Adventures: The Demon Song is now available to pre-order for just £19.99 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) or £16.99 (download only), exclusively here.
The two atmospheric adventures in this box set are:
The Demon Song by Bob Ayres
The Incherton Incident by Nicholas Briggs
Bhavnisha Parmar – best known for playing Sonya Khan in Doctor Who – features as English teacher, Archana “Archie” Pawar. The talented ensemble cast also includes Henry Nott as demon hunter Daniel De’ath and Paksie Vernon as the alien agent, Sanderson.
Producer Mark Wright said: “We were all bowled over by the critical response to The First Doctor Adventures: The Outlaws, especially the response to Stephen and Lauren’s performances as the Doctor and Dodo.
“It was a delight to be back in the studio creating new adventures for this era and to add further dimensions to the Doctor and Dodo’s relationship. From modern-day London and the hunt for a demon, to a post-WW2 conspiracy in the seaside town of Incherton, the Doctor might just be facing his greatest challenge...”
Big Finish listeners can save money by pre-ordering The Demon Song with The Second Doctor Adventures’ 2023 release (title TBA) together in a bundle for just £38 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) £33 (download only).
"A swashbuckling sequel to one of the First Doctor’s best stories, with Stephen Noonan delivering a pitch-perfect performance as the Doctor."
We Made This
"The Outlaws’ and ‘The Miniaturist’ are contrasting tales... both set out the stall for an engaging new take on the era, where Doctor Who’s only limits existed in the imaginations of its writers. Lots more please!"
