Four new adventures featuring the Eighth Doctor and his Edwardian companion Charlotte Pollard.

1. The Mummy Speaks! by Alan Barnes

The Carnaval de Paris, 1841. Amid the sideshow tents, the Doctor and Charley discover something truly novel: an Ancient Egyptian mummy that speaks - despite being dead for more than 4,000 years!

But what the mummy has to say translates into terror for the TARDIS twosome... and proclaims doom for the entire world.

2. Eclipse by Lisa McMullin

The collective noun for a swarm of moths is an eclipse. And when the chittering, nightmarish Hellstrung descend from the forest canopy of planet Pteron, they threaten to snuff out the lives of the human settlers below.

Wanting to know what’s stirred up the Hellstrung, the Doctor and Charley venture deep into the woods as darkness falls.

3. The Slaying of the Writhing Mass by Eddie Robson

The Doctor and Charley become trapped in a temporal traffic jam, caused by time tourists come to witness the pivotal event in the history of the planet Ileiko: the Slaying of the Writhing Mass, the alien entity that enslaved the Ileikans in their infancy.

The legendary hero Salan killed the Mass with a single stone, setting the Ileikans free. But what was the Mass, exactly? And what if the legend was wrong? 

4. Heart of Orion by Nicholas Briggs

The TARDIS intercepts a strange signal, returning the Doctor and Charley to the Garazone System - where once they had a terrifying encounter with the Cybermen, and foiled a bid to change the course of a terrible android-human war.

Now, people are going missing from all over Garazone Central. The Orion War is far from over, and the Doctor and Charley have landed at the heart of it, again!

Charlotte Pollard: The Further Adventuress' biggest problem is its weird title (look at it, it’s a bad pun, the only type of good pun). It’s four adventures which bring back a bygone era going from comedy, to camp, to horror, to political commentary, all through a brilliant cast spearheaded by McGann and Fisher, amazing sound design and music, and Ken Bentley’s always stellar direction. 8.5/10

Indie Mac User

The Further Adventuress proves to be more than an exercise in nostalgia. It's a delightful reminder of a TARDIS duo from long ago whose chemistry remains strong even now. It's also a testament to Big Finish's output, the caliber of its storytelling abilities and productions. Because, across these four stories, they offer up a mix of the old and the new and offer a trip back in time to halcyon days. If that's not pure Doctor Who, then what is?

Warped Factor

The stories are pure escapism and there are elements of influence from the Universal horror movies to Red Dwarf. I like the Doctor as straight man to Charley’s adventurous Edwardian. They sound like they are having huge fun in these capers and long may it last.
