For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Story details are today revealed for the second box set in the brand-new series of The Eleventh Doctor Chronicles, due for release in February 2023 from Big Finish Productions.
Following their pairing in the highly acclaimed Geronimo! earlier this year, the Eleventh Doctor (Jacob Dudman) and Valarie Lockwood (Safiyya Ingar) hit their stride in the next volume of full-cast audio adventures.
There’s a story told throughout the universe. From the dawn of history to its dying days, you’ll find someone telling it. The story of the traveller in the blue box. The story of the Doctor.
No one knows the power of stories more than the Doctor who has been in so many. But for Valarie, this is all new. She’s about to learn how a story can save a life, forge a civilisation or even rewrite reality itself.
Doctor Who - The Doctor Chronicles: The Eleventh Doctor: All of Time and Space is now available to pre-order for just £19.99 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) or £16.99 (digital download only) here.
The three exciting adventures in this box set are:
All of Time and Space by Ellery Quest
As concepts for shows go, it’s a good one. An adventurer and his friend travelling through all of time and space, righting wrongs and defending those who can’t defend themselves. Yet, as its creator is about to discover, there are those who’d rather this show never existed.
What’s so dangerous about ‘Doctor Who’?
The Yearn by Angus Dunican
The people of Medrüth are under siege. Forced into underground bunkers, the Medrüthians are desperate for a way to escape. When the Doctor and Valarie arrive, it seems like they’ve finally got everything they wanted. Except, that’s when the nightmares really begin.
Curiosity Shop by James Goss
Mr Foreman owns a junkyard. He doesn’t get many visitors. In fact, all anyone ever seems interested in is Barbara.
One woman informs Mr Foreman she knows the truth about Barbara, that she went on impossible adventures with a man called the Doctor. This woman, this Valarie, will do anything to be reunited with Barbara and the Doctor. Even if it kills her.
Producer Alfie Shaw said “We’re now entering the era of the Doctor and Valarie and we’re getting into the bulk of their travelling with adventures that aren’t directly interlinked.
“I was looking for stories that were weird, different and out there that would be more experimental. The opening episode, All of Time and Space, just ticked all of those boxes beautifully. The ‘meta’ nature of it really appealed to me.
“In The Yearn, Valarie is starting to open up and is ready to establish relationships with people beyond the Doctor. I really like what Angus has done in this story. It’s beautifully written.
“Curiosity Shop is a wonderful, character-driven piece. There’s humour, an exploration of the Doctor, and we’re using the fact that Valarie is cybernetically-enhanced in different ways.”
Big Finish listeners can save money by pre-ordering all four box sets of this Eleventh Doctor Chronicles series together in a bundle for just £81 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) or £69 (download only).
Praise for Geronimo!:
“Nothing short of dynamite.”
– Doctor Who Magazine
“A genuinely fantastic box set... and the finest offering from the Chronicles range yet.”
– We Made This Network
“Jacob Dudman and Safiyya Ingar make an excellent pairing, giving us one of the most
compelling Doctor/companion relationships Big Finish have ever created.”
– Who Review
“Every time I hear the Eleventh Doctor in these audios, I don’t picture Jacob Dudman. I picture
Matt Smith. Completely identical and uncanny, he perfectly captures the incarnation’s vocal
essences and mannerisms throughout the entire box set.”
– The Doctor Who Companion
