Time has gone awry. The Doctor is lost, without his TARDIS. But he’s not alone. The Space Security Service agents Anya Kingdom and Mark Seven haven’t always been on his side in the past, but now they are here to help him.
And he’s going to need them – because the oldest foes of all are waiting to strike. Ready to take down their greatest enemy…
1.1 Buying Time by John Dorney
The far future – Anya Kingdom of the Space Security Service is on a mission investigating an SSS ship crashing on a distant jungle planet. Unknown to her superiors, she’s searching for something very specific… but what she finds is completely unexpected. Herold friend, The Doctor. With a completely different face and no idea what he’s doing there.
The Time Lord soon finds himself drawn into a conspiracy involving voracious predators, time travel and a malevolent businessman.
History itself is breaking down. If he makes a mistake, it could mean the end of everything…
1.2 The Wrong Woman by John Dorney
The team’s investigations have taken an unexpected turn -but the signs all still point to Sheldrake. With the clock ticking down to the launch of the time tunnels, The Doctor, Anya and Mark split up… but soon discover how hard it is to fight a foe who can always keep one step ahead of you.
But stopping him is only half the battle. The Doctor says that time can be rewritten – and Anya is searching for redemption. Can she put history back on track? Or is The Doctor’s future never going to be the same again?
1.3 The House of Kingdom by Andrew Smith
The Doctor and his friends are trying to locate a scientist to help them out on their quest… but an attack on a space-station alters their plans.
Rescued by Anya’s grandfather, Merrick, and taken to Neptune, The Doctor and Mark discover her family history. A story of betrayal and loss.
Will the Kingdom’s be reconciled? Or are they destined to continue the mistakes of the past?
This boxset release contains all three stories, plus additional behind the scenes interviews.
In April next year, David Tennant will return as the Tenth Doctor for a monumental new full-cast Doctor Who audio drama series from Big Finish Productions, in association with BBC Studios.
David Tennant enters the Dalek Universe
Dalek Universe comprises nine hour-long episodes which will see The Doctor pulled out of time and sent back to the era before the last great Time War. Here he finds himself battling for survival in a universe full of Daleks, Mechonoids, Movellans… and Davros!
David Tennant said: “It’s a big old epic sweep. It reminds me a little bit of those Flash Gordon serials that used to be on the TV during the school holidays when I was a kid.
“Each story has its own self-contained world, but the whole thing has an over-arching momentum. I’ve really enjoyed how varied it is, all within this one story, and the variety of worlds that we go to and environments that we’re in.
“And, as we go through this space opera, to have all these characters brought so clearly to life by a whole range of wonderful actors, it’s been a treat.”
Big Finish Senior Producer, David Richardson said: “What is Dalek Universe? Well it is the first full season of Doctor Who adventures starring David Tennant as The Doctor in over ten years. It is also a huge celebration of the work and imagination of Terry Nation.
“This time The Doctor has no TARDIS for sanctuary and no Rose or Martha or Donna to help… but he is reunited with two faces from the distant past, two serving agents from the Space Security Service. Anya Kingdom (Jane Slavin) betrayed The Doctor in his fourth incarnation – can she make amends? Mark Seven (Joe Sims) is an artificial man with a mysterious history. Together the trio join forces to try and discover who has pulled The Doctor back in time. And more importantly – how can they help him get back home?”
The series will be preceded by a special prologue: The Dalek Protocol, a four-part Doctor Who adventure set on the planet Exxilon, starring Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor, and also featuring Leela (Louise Jameson) and K-9 (John Leeson).
