Big Finish is going from strength to strength. We’re all still buzzing from the news about the Tenth Doctor Adventures, but their Classic Who range continues too, and its storytelling and cast are just as fantastic.
This month’s Short Trips release, The Way of the Empty Hand, is out now, a Second Doctor story narrated by Jamie McCrimmon himself, Frazer Hines. Here’s what it’s about:
The war world of Combatia. A great mechanised planet that traverses the universe, overseen by its benevolent and infallible overlord, plucking up the finest warriors of every world it passes and pitting them against each other to determine which of them is greatest. Their consent is irrelevant – all that matters is the battle. The greatest warrior must be found. Will it be Bloodbane, King of Carnage? Jamie McCrimmon? Gichin Funakoshi? Or the strange little man who calls himself the Doctor?
Written by Julian Richards, and directed by Lisa Bowerman, the story is the tenth in the series’ fifth series. It’s only available for download, but it’s only £2.99 – so what are you waiting for?!
