Marking 40 years since Tom Baker originally hung up his multi-coloured scarf as the Fourth Doctor on television, today we can reveal that The Fourth Doctor Adventures: Series 11 and Series 12 will each contain an added two-part adventure at no extra charge.
The additional tales are as follows:
Peake Season by Lizbeth Myles
The Ghost of Margaret by Tim Foley
Peake Season will be released as part of The Fourth Doctor Adventures: Series 11 Volume 2 in June 2022, and The Ghost of Margaret will be released as part of The Fourth Doctor Adventures: Series 12 in June 2023. Please note the revised release dates for these box sets.
As previously announced in July 2019, Tom Baker returns as the Fourth Doctor alongside companion Leela (Louise Jameson) and new friend Margaret Hopwood (Nerys Hughes) across the series, running into old enemies including the Ice Warriors and Weeping Angels.
Each volume of Doctor Who – The Fourth Doctor Adventures: Series 11 and Series 12 is now available to pre-order individually as a collector's edition box set (on CD at £24.99 each) and as a digital download (at £19.99 each), exclusively from HERE! Big Finish listeners can also pre-order each complete series (both volumes together) in a bundle for £46 on CD or £39 on download.Get the series 11 bundle HERE and the series 12 bundle HERE!
Producer David Richardson said: “It perhaps won’t have escaped listeners’ notice that our schedules will look very different from next year, with each Doctor getting their own ongoing range of three-disc box sets. With Series 11 and 12 of the Fourth Doctor Adventures recorded so far in advance, the change in format required the addition of an extra story to each – which we approached with excitement and joy!
“It gave us an opportunity to add new flavours to the series – a surreal excursion to another world with Mervyn Peake in Peake Season, and a moving character piece in The Ghost of Margaret. Things have worked out for the best – these stories are just the loveliest bonus, adding so much more to the line-up.
“How wonderful to think, 40 years after the Fourth Doctor regenerated at the end of Logopolis, we can look forward to more TARDIS trips with Tom Baker than ever before.”
