Big Finish’s Virgin Novel Adaptations expand

Nightshade_CoverFollowing their adaptations of various key novels in the Virgin New and Missing Adventures ranges, Big Finish have announced a series of further dramatisations to come in the next few months.

In December 2015, Doctor Who: Theatre of War, written and adapted by Justin Richards, sees the Seventh Doctor, Ace (Sophie Aldred) and Bernice Summerfield (Lisa Bowerman) drawn into a Shakespearian tragedy on the planet Mexaus.

Launching at the same time is Doctor Who: All-Consuming Fire, where a sinister intelligence lurks on the streets of 1887 London – and the Doctor’s only hope is join forces with England’s most notable consulting detective – Sherlock Holmes as played by Nicholas Briggs. The release is adapted by Guy Adams from the original novel by writer Andy Lane.

Following in April 2016, Doctor Who: Nightshade is a full cast-adaption of the classic homage to the Quatermass adventures by Mark Gatiss. Dark and terrifying events encompass a sleepy English town, where the Doctor and Ace’s relationship will be tested to the limit, in a script adapted by new-to-Big-Finish contributor Kyle Szikora.

Then in December 2016, we head to 30th Century Earth for the Doctor and Benny’s first encounter with Adjudicator Roz Forrester (Yasmin Bannerman) and her squire Chris Cwej (Travis Oliver) in Doctor Who: Original Sin, originally written by Andy Lane, and adapted by John Dorney.

Another release, announce at a later date, will be available in the same month – and will be a three disc release.
