Big Finish has been producing the audio adventures of the Fifth Doctor since 1999. At first, he was joined by only Nyssa and occasionally Peri before Mark Strickson joined Davison for a few adventures.
Then Big Finish manages to get Janet Fielding to return for a one-off adventure featuring Cyber technology to finish her story as Tegan Jovanka. Being the hard-working people that they are, they managed to convince Fielding to come to the Big Finish fold on a yearly basis to reunite the classic TARDIS team of the Fifth Doctor, Nyssa, Turlough and Tegan, and what fun adventures they’ve been having since 2010.
But what about the original Fifth Doctor line up? Was there any space for Matthew Waterhouse as Adric to make a return? It seemed as though it was not to be until recently, all of a sudden Big Finish post one photograph on their Facebook page and now it’s official – Matthew Waterhouse is in the recording studio with Peter Davison, Janet Fielding and Sarah Sutton and they’re recording new Doctor Who stories that will be released in 2014!
Reunited fully as a team for the first time since 1982, Kasterborous is very pleased to tell you that Adric is back from the dead or at least alive during a period before he died at the hands of the Cybermen.
Details on the upcoming adventures are yet to be released but this is another very exciting update from Big Finish and very welcome news during Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary.
