For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Tick tock... The Clockwork Droids are Coming!
The cover artwork is today revealed for Classic Doctors New Monsters: Broken Memories, due for release in October 2023 from Big Finish Productions.
This brand-new boxset of full-cast audio dramas pits classic Doctors against monsters from the post-2005 era. Making their Big Finish debut in The Queen of Clocks are the terrifying Clockwork Droids — first glimpsed in the unforgettable 2006 Doctor Who TV story The Girl in the Fireplace.
The body-snatching Harmony Shoal from The Husbands of River Song (2015) also feature for the first time on audio. And in the final two adventures, Nicholas Briggs guest stars as the Silence from 2011’s The Impossible Astronaut.
Doctor Who – Classic Doctors New Monsters: Broken Memories is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition 4-disc CD box set (+ download for just £24.99) or digital download (for just £19.99), exclusively here.
Four new adventures featuring classic Doctors encountering monsters from the new series of Doctor Who!
Invasion of the Body Stealers by Jonathan Morris
The Queen of Clocks by Jacqueline Rayner
The Silent Priest by David K Barnes
The Silent City by David K Barnes
Producer David Richardson said: “I’ve been delighted to see how this series has captured the imaginations of our listeners and how everyone has embraced the idea. At last, the Clockwork Droids make their audio debut at Big Finish, as does Harmony Shoal — in two inventive adventures that take them in new directions. And then, two episodes with the Silence, spanning years and different Doctors, as we enter the Silent City…”
Script Editor Matt Fitton added: “I'm always impressed with how the writers find new twists on each monster — tailoring new stories to each Classic incarnation. With creatures from the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Doctor eras, we find out what Harmony Shoal gets up to in the far future on a colony world reminiscent of 1970s Who; what happens when the Clockwork Droids run amok as the colourful Sixth Doctor and Mel race to the rescue; and how the Silence are interwoven across the lives of two very different Doctors. It's another thrilling ride!”
