We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.
Jemma Redgrave, Ingrid Oliver and Warren Brown are ready to defend the earth in the first Big Finish release from the New Series of Doctor Who!
The Unified Intelligence Taskforce – an international initiative to investigate and confront alien attacks across the planet Earth. From a secret headquarters in the Tower of London, the UK division is led by Kate Stewart (Jemma Redgrave), the daughter of the legendary Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, and an expert in combating the extra-terrestrial threats that seek to conquer the world.
UNIT: The New Series teams the UNIT chief with her onscreen assistant Osgood (Ingrid Oliver), a genius tech specialist and fan of the Doctor. Leading the troops is Colonel Shindi (Ramon Tikaram) a UNIT veteran who has led assaults on more aliens then he can name – ably assisted by Captain Josh Carter (James Joyce), a fearless young officer ready to take any risk in defending the Earth. Overseas, Kate deploys her international troubleshooter Lieutenant Sam Bishop (Warren Brown) to undergo secret engagements – with the fate of the entire world often resting on his shoulders.
Available to buy and download today, UNIT: Extinction pits the team against the terror of the Nestene Consciousness (voiced by Nicholas Briggs), a race of plastic-controlling entities first encountered in the classic Doctor Who story Spearhead from Space. With a new plan to enslave the world delivered to them by industrialist Simon Devlin (Steve John Shepherd), UNIT will need to call on forty years of experience if it hopes to hold the line! Check out the video trailer below:
