For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
A gift for Doctor Who fans on the series’ 58th birthday. The Ninth Doctor finally takes on the Cybermen, along with two other brand new full cast audio adventures, released today.
The Ninth Doctor continues his travels as the TARDIS materialises for his third volume of adventures from Big Finish in The Ninth Doctor Adventures: Lost Warriors. Previously Christopher Eccleston’s Doctor has alluded to previous adventures with brief mentions of Sontarans and the Time War, but now he finally meets an old foe in the Cybermen.
Doctor Who – The Ninth Doctor Adventures: Lost Warriors is now available to own on collector’s edition CD, limited edition vinyl and digital download, exclusively at the Big Finish website from just £19.99.
The Doctor meets many strangers on his travels. Some are destined to end up friends, while others were always going to become his enemies. And some were once warriors, with reasons of their own to remain hidden from the universe...
The Hunting Season by James Kettle
Duberry Hall is under siege, as aliens maraud through the estate. It’s a frightful business, and as Lord Hawthorn battles the Fleshkin, the Doctor finds new friends below stairs. Can he convince the household to unite to save itself?
The Curse of Lady Macbeth by Lizzie Hopley
The TARDIS is drawn to Scotland again – to the troubled Kingdom of Moray, and its Queen Gruach.
Or, as the Doctor knows her better, Lady Macbeth. While some believe she is the cause of her people’s woes, she may yet become their saviour.
Monsters In Metropolis by John Dorney
Berlin, 1927. The making of a science fiction legend. But death stalks the film set and history is not what the Doctor expects it to be.
And this new ‘Machine Man’ is a more terrifying vision of humanity’s future than Fritz Lang had in mind...
Script Editor Matt Fitton revealed: "In The Hunting Season, it’s great to have the Ninth Doctor arriving in quite a classic Doctor Who environment, a posh country house with the toffs and the servants, as he has a completely different dynamic with that kind of household than other Doctors in the past. And then we have some alien hunters thrown into the mix terrorising the grounds!”
Writer of The Curse of Lady Macbeth Lizzie Hopley said: “Lady Macbeth is usually interpreted as an evil, manipulating villain. Shakespeare certainly manipulated history for his storytelling and brilliantly so, but I wanted to explore the myth of where that ‘evil’ came from.
“It was an enormous pleasure to plan the first encounter of the Doctor and Macbeth himself. Two legends meeting and exploring their attitude to fighting. It’s one of the most fun scenes I’ve written for Big Finish ever!”
Producer David Richardson added: “We made a conscious decision to avoid too much continuity or returning characters in the first half of our Ninth Doctor run, aiming instead to find our own tone with these audio adventures.
“It was inevitable, however, that old friends and enemies would eventually turn up – and the first taste of that happens in the third adventure of this set, Monsters In Metropolis, as the Ninth Doctor encounters the Cybermen.”
