The Hollow King & Big Finishmas – Terrahawks

The Hollow King & Big Finishmas – Terrahawks

3 January 2019

The new Counter-Measures team return in another gripping alien adventure. More than 30 years since their first appearance in Remembrance of the Daleks, The Hollow King by Ian Potter is a sure-fire hit for 2019.

First seen together in 1988’s Remembrance of the Daleks, the audio range of Counter-Measures continues the adventures of Professor Rachel Jensen (Pamela Salem), Group Captain Ian Gilmore (Simon Williams) and Allison Williams (Karen Gledhill) – now working for Sir Toby Kinsella (Hugh Ross) – as they battle alien threats to England in the 1960s and 1970s.

Last year we were delighted to celebrate 30 years of Counter-Measures and this release is the icing on the Counter-Measures cake. The Hollow King is out now.

They say lights have been seen in the skies over Swammcombe. They say this is the place to spot flying saucers. Allison Williams is not so convinced. But maybe Allison Williams is wrong. When she witnesses a UFO launch from the top of a hill is it signs of alien activity... or something more sinister?

Counter-Measures are looking into Open Band – the disciples of the so-called Swami of Swammcombe, Lord Cavall. They've been been monitoring Cavall since noticing a curious rise in psychiatric cases among his followers…

How true are Cavall’s teachings? What happens during the elite ‘Visualisation’ sessions? And what does this all have to do with the king under the hill?

The Hollow King is available now at £10.99 on CD or £8.99 on download.

Plus, on the tenth day of Big Finishmas, Big Finish gave to me… the first series of Terrahawks!

Back in action after over thirty years comes Terrahawks, the fondly remembered action adventure comedy originally brought to you by the men who created Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Dick Spanner.

In the not too distant future, the Earth finds itself under constant threat from Zelda, a blood-thirsty android who, along with her fiendish family and monstrous creations, has established a base on Mars. The only thing standing between this evil queen and her quest for the ultimate annihilation of mankind are the Terrahawks – an intrepid band of heroes led by the stern but fair clone, Doctor Tiger Ninestein.

After a considerable period of inaction, the Terrahawks once again find themselves called into action when Zelda initiates a brand new campaign of destruction and devastation. Facing up against terrifying time travellers, fraudulent financial fiascos, sickening stand-ups, and deadly doppelgangers – their new adventures could prove to be the Terrahawks’ most challenging missions to date!

Terrahawks Volume One is now available on download at just £4.99. Head to page https://www.bigfinish.com/offers/v/bigfinishmas18 and use the code KRAMPUS to access this and the other Big Finishmas special offers. Offers end at 23:59 (UK time) on 07/01/2019 so don’t miss out.

If you’ve never ventured into the world of Terrahawks before, there are free stories (including Zelda’s The Night Before Christmas, if you’re missing the festive season already!) here.

Unless otherwise stated, there will be new Big Finishmas offers each day, so make sure you keep an eye on the website to spot all the goodies!
