Third Doctor and Jo vs the Meddling Monk

Third Doctor and Jo vs the Meddling Monk

8 November 2017

The ultimate showdown is coming out in March 2018 with Volume Four of The Third Doctor Adventures, when the Third Doctor and Jo take on the Meddling Monk!

Tim Treloar and Katy Manning return to play the Third Doctor and Jo Grant, with Rufus Hound reprising the Meddling Monk. Rufus has previously played the role in The Early Adventures: The Black Hole, Doom Coalition 4 and two Short TripsThe Blame Game and How to Win Planets and Influence People.

The Rise of the New Humans by Guy Adams will be the first of two adventures in The Third Doctor Adventures Volume Four. Investigating a mysterious death, the Doctor and Jo are drawn to a research facility on Dartmoor called the Allingham Institute. What developments has Dr Kurdi pioneered? And who is the Chief Administrator?

Producer David Richardson tells us what to expect from this next chapter of adventures for the Third Doctor: “Volume Four is something of a real fan pleaser, I think. We have Rise of the New Humans which pits the Third Doctor and Jo against the Meddling Monk – who is so sublimely played by Rufus Hound. And then we have… ah, wait and see…

“The second story will be announced in a few weeks’ time, but let’s just say it features an enemy that listeners have been asking for since The Third Doctor Adventures started!”

To be released in March 2018, The Third Doctor Adventures Volume Four is available for pre-order at £25 on CD or £20 on download. Don’t forget that all CD purchases unlock a download exclusive from the Big Finish website, or via the Big Finish App.

In the meantime you can catch our next Third Doctor release in the Short Trips range. Narrated by Nicholas Briggs, Landbound (the finalist in the Paul Spragg Short Trips Memorial Opportunity 2017) by Selim Ulug, tells more of what happened to the Third Doctor when he was trapped on Earth. This tale will be released in December.

He was the captain of a ship once. Since being stripped of his authority, he is lost. Landbound. Then he meets a kindred spirit, a man who has also lost something.

In a small seaside town, both Ronald Henderson and the Doctor want to move forward, but one of them must first come to terms with his past...
