In November 2015 the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) and his companion Liv Chenka (Nicola Walker) will head into a brand new era of Doctor Who, as the TARDIS is recalled to Gallifrey by the Time Lords. And they will be battling a new foe known only as The Eleven…
Doom Coalition is an epic saga that will span four box sets (a total of sixteen episodes) forming one breathtaking interconnecting saga that will push the Doctor’s bravery and resourcefulness to its limits.
“The overall story of Doom Coalition was devised by myself and Ken Bentley over the course of many walks to the studio,” producer David Richardson says. “Our framework has been fleshed out by a fantastic team of writers, and realised by a brilliant cast – and I can’t wait for the roller-coaster to begin in November!”
“Doom Coalition is unlike anything we’ve attempted before,” adds director Ken Bentley. “It’s on a scale that we hope will satisfy loyal listeners. It’s also a new, completely stand-alone adventure, making it a great place to start if you’re listening to Doctor Who on audio for the very first time.”
The first box set will see a new addition to the TARDIS team when gifted philologist Helen Sinclair steps aboard in the second episode. “Helen is from 1963,” explains David. “She was, in part, inspired by Doctor Who’s first producer Verity Lambert – she’s a driven, career-minded woman in a male-dominated profession. And she’s a head-strong and capable companion in the mould of Barbara Wright, Sarah Jane Smith and Tegan Jovanka.”
