UNIT: Incursions

6 February 2019

More details on UNIT’s next set of missions can now be revealed. They’ll be encountering the Static, travelling to oil rigs in the Hebrides, and meeting River Song… but can she be trusted?

Three new missions will be deployed for the UNIT team in April 2019.

UNIT: Incursions

8.1 This Sleep of Death by Jonathan Morris
8.2 Tempest by Lisa McMullin
8.3/8.4 The Power of River Song by Guy Adams

Threats to our planet come in many forms. Some are alien visitations, some lay dormant in Earth itself, and occasionally, danger arrives with a big gun and fantastic hair.
Whatever the threat, whoever the enemy, UNIT is ready to defend the world.

8.1 This Sleep of Death by Jonathan Morris

Abbey Marston. UNIT’s dark secret. A place where the laws of space and time, life and death, can be suspended. Where remembering the departed has consequences… When UNIT faces a threat from a dead man, Kate has no choice but to return to Abbey Marston once more, to disturb the sleep of death. But the Static are waiting…

8.2 Tempest by Lisa McMullin

When the planet’s weather systems start behaving strangely, Osgood is worried. Soon, she and Sam Bishop are heading to a remote Scottish island where an eccentric old woman speaks to the wind itself.
Meanwhile, Kate Stewart visits a deep-sea oil-rig where strange things are afoot. A tempest is coming, and it could be disaster for the entire world.

8.3 The Power of River Song part 1 by Guy Adams

UNIT has been assigned to monitor the switch-on of a revolutionary new power system – they know from experience such things can be tricky.
Nearby, Osgood and Lieutenant Bishop investigate mysterious disappearances – and appearances of trans-temporal phenomena. Kate would like to ask the Director some questions, but she’s proving strangely elusive… until there’s a murder.

8.4 The Power of River Song part 2 by Guy Adams

There’s a dead body in the power station. River Song is the prime suspect. And Kate is most concerned by the identity of the victim.
Meanwhile, Sam and Jacqui chase Vikings, while Osgood finds herself out of time. As deadly predators focus their attention on Earth, it seems activating the power of River Song could spell the end of everything…

This Sleep of Death by Jonathan Morris follows on from the Sixth Doctor’s adventure Static, the Main Range release from December 2017. What UNIT now encounter will surely conclude a truly terrifying story.

Tempest by Lisa McMullin sees the UNIT team on a mission in Scotland where oil rigs are under threat in the Hebrides, and there’s a chilling breeze in the air…

And The Power of River Song by Guy Adams will find the UNIT team helping a scientific project for total renewable energy, led by a mysterious curly-haired director. And on this mission, one of the team will make the ultimate sacrifice for time itself…

The UNIT team are back together, with Jemma Redgrave playing Kate Stewart, Ingrid Oliver as Osgood, Warren Brown as Lieutenant Sam Bishop, and James Joyce as Josh Carter. Two new recruits also join the team as Andrew French plays Sergeant Warren Calder and Ajjaz Awad plays Private Meghan Coates.

Plus Alex Kingston reprises her role as Professor River Song and Tracy Wiles reprises her role as Jacqui McGee. Also staring in this series are Hywel Morgan, Alexandra Mathie, Chris Jarman, Enzo Squillino Jnr and Leighton Pugh.

UNIT: Incursions will be released in April 2019, priced at £23 on CD or £20 on download. Don’t forget that every CD purchase unlocks a download exclusive via the Big Finish app or the Big Finish website.
