Four brand new Big Finish audio titles have just hit the shelves this week at Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester!!
Fourth Doctor Adventure #1.5 Trail of the White Worm. The Fourth Doctor and Leela come face to face with the Doctor’s oldest and deadliest enemy. The Master. The legend dates back to Roman times, at least: a great White Worm, as wide as a man, slithers out of the rocks of the Dark Peak Gap to take animals, sometimes even children, for its food. When the Doctor and Leela arrive in the wilds of Derbyshire, only to get caught up in the hunt for a missing girl, they soon discover that the legend of the Worm is very much alive – even now, in 1979. Worse still, it seems that the Doctor isn’t the only renegade Time Lord on the trail of this deadly and mysterious Worm…
Geoffrey Beevers reprises his role as the Doctor’s best enemy which he portrayed in the television episode Keeper of Traken as well as Big Finish’s audio plays Dust Breeding and Master.
Doctor Who Main Series #160: The Jupiter Conjuncton features the Fifth Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and Turlough. Eight slash Q Panenka, a craggy comet with a 13km circumference, has an elliptical orbit that takes it between Earth and Jupiter. Which, in the year 2329, makes it a cheap means of space freight – the second class postal service of the solar system.
But when the TARDIS lands on Panenka, the Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Nyssa discover a community falling apart at the seams – plagued by thefts, and mysterious disappearances among the ‘piggybackers’ who eke out a desperate existence on the comet. While Tegan and Nyssa suit up for a dangerous excursion into the comet’s Unstable Zone, the Doctor and Turlough find themselves pawns in a game that could lead to tragedy for both Earth and Jupiter alike…
Doctor Who The Lost Stories #3.4: The Guarians of Prophecy features the Sixth Doctor and Peri features a story originally devised but never made for the Doctor Who television series. The TARDIS materialises on Serenity, the last surviving world of the Traken Union. Peri expects a good place for a holiday – not tomb raiders, a labyrinth filled with terrifying monsters and a trap-laden necropolis. For Serenity’s gentle name belies its history as the home planet of the Melkur, soldiers created to serve a long dead dark force, the embodiment of evil itself. Whilst they sleep, vicious thieves are after this force’s secrets, and will stop at nothing to find them. But will they find more than they bargained for?
Frazer Hines performs Doctor Who The Companion Chronicles 6.11: The Jigsaw War featuring the Second Doctor. A cell. Four walls, one door. Jamie McCrimmon can escape, but it means unravelling a puzzle of extraordinary complexity. And there are more than just two players in this game. The Doctor is there. So is his opponent Si. As a hero turns killer, and a rebellion becomes anarchy, the lines between good and evil are blurred. And so does the distinction between cause and effect…
Dark Shadows #35 The Eternal Actress stars Donna McKechnie and Andrew Collins. “But the most terrible thing of all was the woman’s face. She didn’t have one.” Helvetica Stanhope is a famous actress with a dark secret. She’s afraid to sleep – for in her dreams, she sees the terrible deaths of her friends. Dreams which come horribly true. But that is not her dark secret.
Gideon Wilder is a Hollywood reporter with a dark secret. He knows the truth about Helvetica Stanhope and he’s going to tell all. But that is not his dark secret. Amanda Harris knows both their dark secrets. But she’s quite happy standing quietly in the background. Waiting. Because that’s what she’s always done.
So come on down during normal business hours and pick up one of these great titles today!!
