Black Thursday by Jamie Anderson
1902. Deep beneath the Welsh village of Abertysswg, men have worked the black seam for generations. Until the day of the disaster. The day that a blue box from the future materialised inside the mine…. and things would never be the same again.
Power Game by Eddie Robson
Welcome to the Incredible Power Game, in which three brave Earthlings enter the Void Pit in search of strange gems to help return the alien Hostess to her home dimension. Today’s contestants include Graham, Sadia… and Tegan, an air stewardess from Brisbane!
A ship that’s in trouble, and about to make a crash-landing…
On a planet of mists.
Some may remember Kamelion, the shape-changing android from 80s Doctor Who, as the unlikely successor to robo canine companion K9, cut short by tragic circumstance. Enter Big Finish, purveyors of Doctor Who on audio to save the day!
Starting in January 2019, a new set of stories start with the Fifth Doctor (Peter Davison), Tegan (Janet Fielding) and Turlough (Mark Strickson) in The Doctor Who Main Range.
And this this they’re joined properly by their android friend Kamelion, voiced by legendary impressionist Jon Culshaw.
The robot who could change shape was set to be one of the most exciting companions of the 1980s – a robot who could change its form, and operated by computers in a television production first! However, the opportunity was cut short by the tragic death of its operator, Mike Power.
Enter Big Finish! This unexplored chapter of Doctor Who history will be unearthed in three new adventures, starting in January 2019.
247. DEVIL IN THE MIST by Cavan Scott
248. BLACK THURSDAY/POWER GAME by Jamie Anderson and Eddie Robson
249. THE KAMELION EMPIRE by Jonathan Morris
Jon Culshaw, said “He’s a very elegant soul, Kamelion. A cross between C3PO and a suit of armour. He was sinister, and had a graceful presence about him, it was beautifully unnerving. A fascinating character.”
