Return of the Eighth Doctor

The Eleventh Doctors’ first series of adventures comes to the end of its run this month but don’t worry if you’re suffering withdrawal symptoms, Big Finish will be commencing their latest series of audio adventures with the Eighth Doctor in July.

Doctor Who star Paul McGannThe new season of adventures starring Paul McGann as the Doctor started in December 2009 with Death in Blackpool as a “Christmas special” of sorts but now returns for a full series again. Confirmed titles so far (and any information on their plotting available at the time) include:

Situation Vacant


The Book of Kells


The Resurrection of Mars.

…and four more titles that are to be confirmed.

We’ll be providing preview coverage of each release – the casts are simply superb, featuring guest appearances from Jim Carter, Terrance Hardiman (The Beast Below), Fenella Woolgar (Agatha Christie in 2008’s The Unicorn and the Wasp), Graeme Garden (The Goodies), Tracy-Ann Oberman (2006’s Army of Ghosts/Doomsday), Nicky Henson, David Warner and many others.

The first 3 seasons of the Eighth Doctor’s adventures have proved to be solid stories with some great acting and this year is looking no different.

You can listen to a trailer at the official Big Finish Website –


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
