Destiny of the Doctor, the series of Doctor Who audiobooks produced to celebrate the show’s 50th anniversary, will be completed as The Time Machine is released by Big Finish Productions.
Doctor Who: The Time Machine, the eagerly awaited final instalment of the 11-part range, will be available to buy on CD and download in time for the show’s historic celebratory weekend beginning 22 November.
Jenna Coleman (who plays the Doctor’s companion Clara in the series) performs the story, accompanied by Michael Cochrane (The Archers) and Nicholas Briggs (Doctor Who). The story is written by Matt Fitton, and produced and directed by John Ainsworth.
23 November 2013. In an Oxford laboratory, graduate Alice Watson helps Professor Chivers assemble the final pieces of an impossible machine. A time machine.
The scientist and his assistant believe they are making history, little suspecting that the project’s completion will threaten the existence of the entire universe. But someone has sensed the danger, and when the mysterious Doctor arrives, Alice is taken on a desperate race from libraries and dreaming spires all the way to the nightmare world of Earth’s future.
The monstrous Creevix are coming. They seek control of time itself and are certain that the Doctor is already too late to stop them. But can the key to saving the future lie in the Time Lord’s past lives?
Big Finish is licensed to make Doctor Who on audio by BBC Worldwide.
It's ten years since Nick Briggs became co-executive producer of Big Finish Productions. His friends and colleagues celebrate this fact in a not entirely serious tribute.
