The Minister of Chance, Doctor Who spin-off

The Minister’s About To Roll Those Dice…

The Minister of Chance, Doctor Who spin-off

With just two days to go until the new episode of free internet audio drama The Minister Of Chance, they’ve released a trailer so you can hear for yourself just what lies in store. It sounds like quite an interesting piece of work, and they’re funded entirely by their listeners! Think of it like PBS and you’re more or less there.

The series has managed to attract some fairly big names despite being made for next to nothing.  Paul McGann and Sylvester McCoy have both made appearances in the show; neither of them play their former roles of the Doctor. Also appearing in the new episode is Tamsin Grieg, of Green Wing, Black Books and Episodes fame (she also appeared in 2005’s Ninth Doctor adventure The Long Game).

Both of the previous episodes and the upcoming third one are/will be available to download from iTunes and the website. There’s also a  9 minute prologue which sets the scene for the series, should you need an introduction.

If you’re eagerly awaiting this episode, then take a listen to the trailer in the audio player below!

Incidentally, there is also an eBay auction from the makers of the show, selling off a t-shirt signed by Paul McGann and Sylvester McCoy.Bidding is at £20 at the time of writing and there’s seven days left, so take a look!
