SPACE, THE FINAL FRONTIER... 07.12.14
It has been announced that Colin will boldly go where no other Doctor has gone before. Into the Star Trek universe with a guest appearance in the latest of the acclaimed Star Trek Continues web series. Colin will record his scenes in January with the episode launched online in the Spring 2015.

More information on the ongoing Star Trek Continues project can be found at the shows official website www.startrekcontinues.com

 
RETURN OF THE RANI! 06.12.14
December sees the much anticipated return of The Rani (this time played by Siobhan Redmond) to the world of Doctor Who in the new Big Finish audio The Rani Elite. A free download of Part One can be found HERE

The TARDIS arrives in the CAGE – not a trap, but the College of Advanced Galactic Education, one of the most prestigious academic institutions in colonised space.

Not a trap. Or is it?

The Doctor’s here to receive an honorary degree in Moral Philosophy. But there’s something rotten at the heart of the Medical Facility. Someone is operating on the students. Someone without a conscience. Someone with access to a Sidelian Brain Scanner – a technology that hasn’t been invented yet.

That someone is the ruthless Time Lord scientist known as the Rani – in her new incarnation. But will the Doctor and Peri recognise the Rani’s hand before her trap is sprung?

SIXIE AND PERI GET ANOTHER REVELATION... 03.11.14
October sees a rematch between The Daleks and the Sixth Doctor and Peri with the release of the audio drama Masters Of Earth by Mark Wright and Cavan Scott.

The year is 2163. Ten years since the Daleks invaded the Earth. One year until the Doctor, in his first incarnation, will help bring the occupation to an end. But for now, their reign of terror goes on.

The TARDIS brings the Doctor and Peri to Scotland – enslaved, like everywhere else on the planet. But there are rumours of Dalek-free islands off its coast. Places where resistors and refuseniks are coming together, gathering arms and armour, preparing to strike back against the enemy.

When the Doctor falls in with an unlikely group of freedom fighters making that dangerous journey to Orkney, he finds himself trapped – but not only by the Daleks, their robotised henchmen and their human collaborators.

By history.

Because history shows that for another year, resistance is useless...

The rebellion must fail – and as a Time Lord, the Doctor can do nothing to help 

 
WELCOME TO THE TARDIS CONSTANCE! 21.10.14
Big Finish have announced the Sixth Doctor will get a new companion in 2015 in the form of celebrated actress Miranda Raison. Miranda will be best known to Doctor Who fans as Tallulah in the two part story Daleks In Manhatten / Evolution Of The Daleks with David Tennant's Doctor. Her character opposite the Sixth Doctor will be very different as Nick Briggs explained:

“We’d worked with Miranda a few times on Doctor Who, The Avengers and Jago and Litefoot,” says line producer David Richardson, “and she was brilliant and a joy to work with. She sent a lovely email saying if ever we’d like her to do more, she’d be there like a shot – so I suggested to executive producer Nicholas Briggs and main range script editor Alan Barnes that we might find an ongoing role for her.”

Big Finish took the idea of a new companion to Colin Baker, and he embraced the opportunity to work with Miranda again – having done so before a few years back on The Wreck of the Titan. And so Alan Barnes was set to work on creating a character for her…

“The result is Constance,” says Nick. “She’s brilliant, inventive, has a great sense of humour and is just generally lovely to spend time with. We’re delighted and proud to have Constance and Miranda on board, not least because the character is so intriguing.”

“Mrs Constance Clarke is a Leading Wren in the Women’s Royal Navy Service (WRNS),” explains Alan, “and she served at Bletchley Park, in the famous Code & Cipher School, during World War II. The precise details of when, how and why her path first crossed with the Sixth Doctor’s must remain strictly classified for now – but all will be revealed in time...!

"She's a fantastic asset for the Sixth Doctor – capable, practical and reliable; in many ways, everything he's not! But she's a fantastic asset for Britain, too, in the darkest days of the War. One day, she'll have to choose between them – or between the Doctor and Mr Clarke, a Lieutenant Commander in Naval Intelligence, currently AWOL for reasons unknown. But not just yet..."
