For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.

Bath, 1756 – and a very dashing gentleman known only as the Doctor is newly arrived in town, accompanied by his lady friends Mrs Clarke and Mrs Ramon. He’s created a stir among the gentlefolk of Georgian high society – and a stir in the heart of merry widow Mrs Theodosia Middlemint, rumour has it.

They are not the only strangers from abroad causing tongues to wag, however. The mysterious Lady Clara, come from Amsterdam in the company of the noble Captain Van Der Meer, has the whole of Bath agog. Who is she, really? What is she, really?

But there’s something terrible beneath the veneer of Georgian gentility. As awful a horror as the Doctor has ever exposed, hidden inside Balsam’s Brassworks. Something that needs to be brought to light, for the sake of all humanity.

Recorded on: 11-12th May 2017
Recorded at: Moat Studios


In what starts as a light-weight tale of balls and society life, dark ingredients slowly emerge as the dark truth underpinning much of the business success of the protagonists is explored.


An excellent script by Marc Platt encapsulating a dark part of English history, incredible performances throughout. 10/10

Host Productions

The Behemoth is a calm, intentionally slower-paced pure historical tale. It grants the inhabitants of the TARDIS a divergence from their daily outing with aliens and space travel. The Behemoth shows the drama and lessons that can be learned by simply looking back at our own past. 8/10

Blogtor Who

Colin Baker has always been the star of Big Finish Productions Doctor Who Main Range, and stories like this are proof positive that he deserves that position. A compelling drama from beginning to end, and ever so slightly educational as well. 10/10

Planet Mondas

Platt has woven an intricate and very enjoyable tale that takes in slavery, the foibles and fallacies of Georgian society – and even a spot of prestidigitation!  9/10
