Big Finish release info on Doctor Who – The Third Doctor Adventures

Big Finish have dropped some news on their next volume of Doctor Who – The Third Doctor Adventures! They confirm recording has wrapped for Katy Manning, Tim Treloar and a talented supporting cast on Doctor Who – The Third Doctor Adventures: Volume 3, with the second story – Andrew Smith’s The Storm of the Horofax now in the can. The writer comments:

“It’s been such a pleasure to finally get to write for Katy Manning. I’d tackled the Third Doctor before, in 2013’s Destiny of the Doctor audio Vengeance of the Stones, but this is the first time I’ve written a story featuring Jo Grant: she’s a companion and a performance I have huge fondness for, having clear memories of all her stories from the 70s. Golden years for the programme, which transformed my appreciation into true fandom. Jo made a strong impression – so likeable, loyal and dependable, and right up there along with Jamie for me as one of the quintessential Doctor Who companions.”

“When I wrote for the TV show in 1980, I would often reflect on how eight-year-old me would have been gobsmacked to think of that happening. That same wee me would have been equally surprised and delighted to learn that he would one day, as happened this week, be in a studio listening to Katy speaking his lines for Jo. It’s also been a rich delight to hear Tim Treloar bring the Third Doctor to life, and to witness his meticulous technique for doing so.”

As producer David Richardson expands: “This set combines an intriguing, traditional Earthbound story with a thrilling ride in outer space with the Daleks. Everything you could want from the Third Doctor Adventures is here – high octane action, jeopardy and a heart-breaking emotional core in the scripts by Andrew Smith and Nick Briggs. And Tim Treloarand Katy Manning are on fine form – making that special partnership live on in the 21st Century”.

Doctor Who – The Third Doctor Adventures: Volume 3‘s release date has moved to August from July, but the set can still be pre-ordered for just £20 on Download and £25 on CD, with the CD purchase unlocking digital access as a Big Finish listeners’ exclusive.
