Release Date 29 September 2017

Category: Big Finish Mini-Series and Specials

A brand new box set of four adventures, featuring monsters from the new series of Doctor Who!

 

Night of the Vashta Nerada by John Dorney

Funworld was set to be the happiest planet in the galaxy. A planet of joy, of euphoria, of laughter and delight. Except construction was marred by reports of a predator and then, a few days before opening, all communication ceased.

 

Owner Georgia Donnelly is desperate to open the resort and has hired Amanda Steele's crew to find out what happened on the planet. They're the best. But even they might not be up to the task.

 

Joined by the Doctor and being picked off one by one, they slowly start to realise that something terrifying lurks in the shadows.

 

Empire of the Racnoss by Scott Handcock

When a distress call rips the TARDIS from the Vortex, dragging it back through time, it arrives in the midst of a conflict between Gallifrey and an ancient foe.

 

The Doctor, as ever, wants to help, but in returning a wounded combatant home, he becomes further and further entangled in a web of deceit and recrimination. A web spun by an eight-legged Empress and her minions…

 

The Empire of the Racnoss is at war, and wherever he stands, the Doctor is on the wrong side.

 

The Carrionite Curse by Simon Guerrier

Katy Bell returns to her Midlands home to find strange goings-on at the buskers fair. A witch trial in the 1980s. A bonfire ready to be lit...

 

Luckily, a colourful visitor is already investigating, and the local vicar, Katy's dad, is versed in tales of the macabre. Terrifying forces are on the loose, and the town hall holds a secret. There is black magic in the Black Country, and the Doctor has the name of his enemy on the tip of his tongue...

 

Something wicked this way comes.

 

Day of the Vashta Nerada by Matt Fitton

As the Time War rages, Cardinal Ollistra of Gallifrey seeks to create ever more dangerous weapons to deploy against the enemy.

 

When the Doctor stumbles across Synthesis Station, he discovers that the Time Lords have sponsored a project to weaponise already-lethal creatures. But in doing so, Eva Morrison and her team have unwittingly used a colony of Vashta Nerada with a very unfortunate history of humanoid contact.

 

The Doctor finds himself leading a desperate race for survival, in which the shadows may be the least of their worries…

 

Cast: Tom Baker (The Doctor), Peter Davison (The Doctor), Colin Baker (The Doctor), Paul McGann (The Doctor), Adjoa Andoh (Racnoss Empress), Nigel Planer (Old Racnoss Emperor/ Herrax), Andrew French (Racnoss Consort), Lisa Kay (Alayna), Pam Ferris (Amanda Steele), Lorelei King (Georgia Donnelly), Emma Lowndes (Phelan), Matt Devitt (Bennetto), Maya Sondhi (Katy Bell), Andrée Bernard (Mary Sissinghurst), Adèle Anderson (Eileen Nelthorpe), Michael Fenton-Stevens (Rev Douglas Bell), Jacqueline Pearce (Ollistra), Jan Ravens (Dr Eva Morrison), Himesh Patel (Biotech Dendry), Tim Wallers (Commander Roxita/ Security Chief Raldon).

Torchwood 17: The Office That Never Was

office_that_never_was.jpg ? On Order £10.99

Release Date 29 September 2017

Category: Torchwood

"Ianto really shines in this story and Gareth David-Lloyd gets to play him with a range I think was only started in the TV show. 10/10" Indie Mac User

 

"‘The Office of Never Was’ is a welcome return of Ianto Jones to the Big Finish world. Gareth David-Lloyd has turned in an excellent performance of a challenging script. Goss has taken a daring move with the character and crafted the perfect environment for it. This is an essential Torchwood story for your collection. – 9/10 " Blogtor Who

 

"This story goes right to the heart of what Torchwood are and what they do, it deals with the consequences of those actions almost like no other story before it and lays Ianto’s soul bare – Ianto always was the softer side of Torchwood, this explores how he deals with the contradictions in his job and how those contradictions can devastate the lives of those who Torchwood sometimes only think of as all in a days work." Planet Mondas

 

"For me, Ianto was always the unsung hero of Torchwood Cardiff. From his humble beginnings serving tea to Jack and the gang, to being a badass, to being murdered in Children of Earth, Ianto was always dependably brilliant; and James Goss makes sure you know it in this story." Gallifrey Archive

 

There’s an empty office block in Cardiff. That’s nothing special – plenty of businesses go under, clear out, cease to exist. All that’s left behind is an empty building. But there’s one office block that refuses to be forgotten about.

 

There have been stories about that building - strange lights, funny goings on, faces pressed up against the glass. Enough to get the locals worried. Enough to ask Torchwood to get involved.

 

It’s Friday night. Ianto Jones has better things to do with his time than look round a haunted building. But he goes anyway, and it turns out that The Office has been waiting for him.

 

Torchwood contains adult material and may not be suitable for younger listeners.

 

Cast: Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto Jones), Bethan Rose Young (Girl), David Shields (Oliver)

prisoner_2.jpg ? On Order £30.00

Release Date 29 September 2017

Based on the classic ITV series.

 

‘I’m not a number. I’m a free man!’

 

January 16th, 1967...

 

A secret agent resigns, then wakes up to find himself imprisoned in ‘The Village’ — a bizarre community with a cheery veneer, but an underbelly of mystery and threat. All occupants of The Village have numbers instead of names, with our secret agent forced to accept the mantle of Number Six.

 

The authorities running this Village are intent on discovering why Number Six resigned — but it’s a secret he steadfastly refuses to divulge. As the drama unfolds, the authorities, in the guise of the sinister Number Two, try ever more ingenious and aggressive means to bend Number Six to their will. All the while, Number Six is intent on two aims: to escape and to find out ‘Who is Number One?’.

 

This second volume contains four more stories, with further details to be announced soon.

Lethbridge-Stewart: Quiz Book

LS_Quiz_Book.jpg ? On Order £8.99

Release Date 30 September 2017

Category: Lethbridge-Stewart Novels and Audios

Mark Jones, author of the recent Lethbridge-Stewart free story United in Blood, says: “When Candy Jar asked me to compile The Lethbridge-Stewart Quiz Book I couldn’t wait to get started. The Brigadier is a character that meant a great deal to me and it gave me the chance to watch the UNIT stories over again.”

 

Like the classic Doctor Who Quiz Books of the 1980s, The Lethbridge-Stewart Quiz Book features over 750 questions on the UNIT era of Doctor Who and beyond. For instance:

 

• In the television story The Time Monster what was TOMTIT?

• Who is attempting to penetrate the Earth’s crust in Inferno?

• What relation is James Lethbridge-Stewart to the Brigadier?

• What does UNIT stand for?

 

Shaun Russell, head of publishing at Candy Jar, is excited about the book. “I remember a trip to Lyme Regis as a boy where I found a copy of the first Doctor Who Quiz Book. For some reason my local WHSmith did not have this book, which made the discovery even more exciting. I don’t think my sister appreciated it though. Asking me questions on the beach about Doctor Who was not her idea of fun.”

 

Mark is revisiting this classic formula, with twelve separate sections dedicated to the adventures of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. He says: “There’s something for everyone and it’s a book that will provide hours of entertainment and a challenge to the old grey matter. It’s a book for dipping into whenever you feel like challenging yourself or your friends – hopefully without too many arguments.”

There is no solid land and the only locals are the Wavewalkers, hunters who live in floating villages. But recently some strangers have arrived, pursuing their own distinct agenda.

Dalek: The Astounding Untold History of the Enemies of the Universe

dalek.jpg ? On Order £35.00

Release Date 24 October 2017

Category: Doctor Who Reference Books

For the first time, the never-before-told history of the Doctor's most dangerous enemy, the Daleks, from their genesis thousands of years ago to their conquest of the universe.

 

Doctor Who: Dalek, is the one and only volume devoted solely to the history of the Doctor's greatest enemy. The Daleks, with their watchword cry "Exterminate!," are a race of cyborg aliens single-mindedly determined to conquer the universe and end all life forms they consider inferior.

 

First appearing on Doctor Who in 1963, the Daleks are among the show's most popular villains. Reminiscent of human-sized pepper shakers, the external mechanical casing of the Dalek protects a soft, repulsive creature whose electronic voice is reduced to a squeak when outside of its shell.

 

Doctor Who: Dalek chronicles the Daleks' genesis through the Time War and their ongoing conquest of the universe. Here are never-before-told stories about these legendary creatures--including terrifying near-mythical adventures, startling visual recreations of secret conflicts, and more. Each story sheds new light on what has become the most feared alien race in the universe.

 

With a foreword by showrunner Steven Moffat, full-color illustrations, concept art, cutaways, diagrams, comic strips and more, Doctor Who: Dalek is the ultimate celebration of all things Dalek and a must have for devoted Whovians of every age.
