Fans of Big Finishâ€™s The Lost Stories can shout â€œHooray!â€ as the company has announced more details for its series three release which will commence in October 2011.
The first three stories to be released all feature the Fifth Doctor, Tegan and Nyssa and all come from scripts that were intended to be made for television but never got the chance for a multitude of reasons.
The Elite is the first release of the series. Written by John Dorney from a script by Barbara Clegg (Enlightenment), Producer David Richardson promises:
â€œItâ€™s a big roller-coaster ride for the Fifth Doctor, which builds to a wonderfully cataclysmic and exciting climax.â€
The November release is Hexagora by Paul Finch from a storyline by Peter Ling (whose previous writing credits include The Mind Robber) and Hazel Adair. The cast will include Jacqueline Pearce (Blakeâ€™s 7) and Toby Hadoke (Moths ate my Doctor Who scarf).
The Children of Seth is the big December release. Originally penned by Christopher Bailey (Kinda, Snakedance) and now adapted for audio by Marc Platt (Ghost Light, Spare Parts), you couldnâ€™t hope to have two better Doctor Who writers handling a story! David Richardson explained:
â€œ[The script] is dark and political, and filled with some interesting characters with their own agendas. And weâ€™ve got Honor Blackman, David Warner, Vernon Dobtcheff and Adrian Lukis all in the same Doctor Who story â€“ how great is that?”
There are more stories to be announced for the third series. Keep your eyes peeled for more information!
