Starting next week Radio4 Extra, which not a long time ago used to be BBC Radio 7, will began weekday transmissions of the three stories making up the first trilogy of Big Finish Doctor Who stories featuring Janet Feilding as Tegan but which also feature Peter Davison as the Doctor, Sarah Sutton as Nyssa and Mark Strickson as Turlough.
Cobwebs by Jonathan Morris – 16-19 May 2011
The Whispering in the Forest by Stephen Cole – 20-25 May 2011
The Cradle of The Snake by Marc Platt – 26-31 May
I briefly reviewed Cobwebs previously and think it a superb timey-wimey story, well in keeping with the Moffat-era in its approach to narrative.
The Whispering Forest is a more traditional generation starship story while Platt’s conclusion brings back the Mara from Christopher Bailey’s classic TV stories Kinda and Snakedance, both of which recently made their DVD debut.
