For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
A brand-new box set of audio adventures awaits the Fifth Doctor and his friends, due for release in April 2024 from Big Finish Productions.
Mysteries come in all shapes and forms. From a small-scale murder to an alien conspiracy. But when they arise the Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and Adric are the perfect team to deal with them.
Peter Davison stars as the Fifth Doctor in the forthcoming Doctor Who box set, The Dream Team. Joining him for two full-cast audio dramas are Matthew Waterhouse, Sarah Sutton and Janet Fielding as companions Adric, Nyssa and Tegan, encountering death and deadly dreams.
Producer David Richardson said: “What would it be like to throw the Fifth Doctor team into a historical murder mystery, in which he gets to play detective? That was the starting point of The Merfolk Murders – a four-part story which may, or may not, have a very subtle link to a Fourth Doctor Adventure that’s in the works. Tim Foley, as always, excels with a rich character drama…
“Then Lizzie Hopley gets to unleash her wild imagination with the Dream Crabs as they imperil the Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and Adric in a story that only features the lead actors.”
Doctor Who – The Fifth Doctor Adventures: The Dream Team is now available to pre-order for just £22.99 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) or £18.99 (digital download only), exclusively here. The collector’s edition CD box set is strictly limited to 1500 copies and will not be repressed.
The Merfolk Murders by Tim Foley (four parts)
St Andrews, Scotland, 1940. The Merfolk are a university society meeting through the summer to discuss murder mystery stories. Innocent escapism during wartime, they say. Their latest book is The Casebook of Orion Hood – whose hero is all-too familiar to the Doctor…
When a real-life murder occurs soon after their gathering, the Doctor’s friends encourage him to investigate. Is one of the Merfolk responsible? Was this crime the result of espionage or envy? The Doctor must embrace his deerstalker once more and solve this wartime mystery – before the killer can strike again!
Dream Team by Lizzie Hopley (two parts)
“Welcome to Concordium! The one stop destination for elite and effective corporate bonding.”
A protected wonder of space is being exploited for ‘company away days’ but when the Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and Adric land to challenge the organisers, they fall into a web of perfectly tailored nightmares. As the Doctor confronts one of the most dangerous monsters in existence, one that uses your own mind against you whilst it feeds, his companions fall deeper into the trap and a nasty truth is revealed – you can die in dreams."
This box set also includes the second of 2024’s bonus Interludes, read by Dan Starkey. Interludes are hour-long audiobook adventures with special music and effects, bundled exclusively as download extras with selected classic Doctor box sets.
Meanwhile, Turlough by Jonathan Blum
There’s a crisis on Greysolon. And only the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough can stop it.
Except one of them may be otherwise occupied. Turlough has managed to find a crisis of his own. A very personal one.
While his friends are saving the planet… he’s going to have to save himself.
A second Fifth Doctor Adventures set (Title TBC) will follow later in the year. Both can be pre-ordered together in a bundle for just £44 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) or £36 (download only).
All the above prices include the special pre-order discount and are subject to change after general release.
