We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.
Catch up on a week of news and releases from the worlds of Big Finish!
Blimey. Where do we start? A brand new Eighth Doctor box-set? A new trailer for the Tenth Doctor and Donna? Romana, Leela and Ace joining forces? River Song meeting two previous incarnations of her husband? Bernice Summerfield meeting an alternative version of her best friend; and the Master! It's been one of the biggest weeks ever for Doctor Who reveals; let's dive straight in!
Doctor Who: Doom Coalition 2 is available now! Continuing on from the events of the gripping first volume, the new set once again pits the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann), Liv Chenka (Nicola Walker) and Helen Sinclair (Hattie Morahan) against the might of the Eleven (Mark Bonnar); an insane Time Lord whose previous incarnations still exist within his head.
But an encounter with a group of invading Voord places the TARDIS on the trail of a new threat against reality, concealed within the Time Vortex. And this may just be the start of the Doctor's worries; because River Song (Alex Kingston) needs the Doctor’s help on a distant planet.
Watch the video trailer below:
Doctor Who: Doom Coalition 2 is available to buy and download today for just £20 on both CD and to download.
