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

Pursued by a squadron of Dalek assault ships, the Master's only hope is to abandon the space-time vortex and flee into an altogether different reality: a realm of fiction.

Confronted with creatures of myth and figures from folklore, the Master sees an opportunity to scavenge a universe of impossible artefacts and use them against his enemies.

But first, he must face off against a host of legendary monsters, literary heroes and embody fiction’s greatest consulting detective: Sherlock Holmes.

8.1 The Wrath of Medusa by Rochana Patel
Crashing into a universe of fiction, the Master finds himself lost in a world of Greek mythology… with a Dalek assault squad close behind.

8.2 The Shadow Master by Lizzie Hopley
As the Master plunders inconceivable artefacts from an impossible universe, he encounters a figure that may prove his greatest threat: his own Shadow.

8.3 The Adventure of the Deceased Doctor by Alfie Shaw
When Dr John Watson is informed of his own murder, only the world’s greatest consulting detective can assist. He just happens to come from a different world.

8.4 The Master of Dorian Gray by David Llewellyn
Seeking the power of immortality, the Master works himself into the life of Dorian Gray. But can he change how the story ends?

Recorded on: 11/18 February, 4/6 May and 26-27 August 2021
Recorded at: The Soundhouse, Audio Sorcery and recorded remotely


...although there's only so many times the War Master can rip your heart out in the audio medium, Escape from Reality found an interesting way to do it with by using public domain characters like Greek mythology, Dorian Gray and Sherlock Holmes, playing with the format and the Master as a character, finding a way to make it feel fresh and interesting... it's a terrific box set.


Escape From Reality has shot up to being one of my favourite releases of this year, the Land of Fiction proving to be an excellent arena for exciting and intelligent story telling and ripe for characters like the Master to get stuck in with warping and corrupting the stories we are so familiar with.

I think this might be one of the best box sets Big Finish have ever done.
