For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
The Tenth and Sixth Doctors face a frightening showdown with an old enemy in the third story of the Out of Time trilogy, released today by Big Finish Productions.
First seen on screen in the 2007 Doctor Who episode, Blink, the Weeping Angels are deadly living statues that feed on people’s time energy. Quantum-locked, they can only move when they are not being observed, which makes them all the more lethal on a planet where no one has the power of sight...
Doctor Who – Out of Time: Wink, written by Lisa McMullin, is now available to own as a collector’s edition CD (+ download for just £10.99) or a digital download only (for just £8.99), exclusively here.
When the Sixth Doctor goes sight-seeing on Lucidus Silvara, he finds himself in a place where nothing is visible at all… only all-encompassing light! The Tenth Doctor is drawn in by a temporal anomaly, and the two Doctors meet a species with no sense of sight, living in a city surrounded by Weeping Angels.
To save a civilisation, the Doctors must keep their eyes on the Angels. Don’t blink. Don’t even wink…
Writer Lisa McMullin said: “The Weeping Angels tap into childhood fears. You can’t reason with them. The only way you can stop an attack is by looking at them or by getting them to look at each other. But what would happen if the Weeping Angels were dropped into a colony of people who don’t have the sense of sight? That’s where the Doctors come in.”
David Tennant added: “It works very well to have the Weeping Angels on audio. I think the fact that it all happens when you’re not looking is the scary thought — that, if you look away, things will change when you look back. It undermines everything we think we know about how the physical world manifests.
“To introduce a whole race that doesn’t have the power of sight at all is very clever as, for them, the Angels are a concept that they have to come to terms with.”
Colin Baker agreed: “I did wonder how the Weeping Angels would work on audio but it’s all totally credible, real, and happening. Hats off to Lisa McMullin for making it work. I liked it — more please!”
