Big Finish The Eleventh Doctor Chronicles

Available to order from www.bigfinish.com

Four narrated stories set in the Eleventh Doctor era:

1. The Calendar Man by AK Benedict

Answering a cry for help, the Doctor and Amy arrive on a misty colony world – but nobody thinks anything is wrong. Nobody, except for one young woman, hiding in shadows and scribbling in her notebook.

Soon, Amy is on the trail of missing colonists, while the Doctor strides into the fog in search of a fairy-tale.

But time is running out, and the Calendar Man is flicking through the pages of their lives…

2. The Top of the Tree by Simon Guerrier

On one of their annual jaunts, young Kazran Sardick and the Doctor find themselves in trouble when the TARDIS is tangled in the branches of a very strange, very large tree.

They emerge into a habitat where myriad species fight for survival: an ecosystem of deadly flora and fauna, along with a tribe of primitive humans.

This is a mystery which can only be solved by climbing. But what will they find at the top of the tree?

3. The Light Keepers by Roy Gill

Dorium Maldovar has a problem. The self-styled ‘Beacon People’ are bad for business, and now they’re in his shuttle park, digging for mysterious minerals.

When the Doctor crashes into his life once again, Dorium enlists him to find out what these scavengers are really up to inside their lighthouse.

But a lighthouse signals danger – and this beacon was placed to warn of something more ancient and powerful than anyone knows. Something that is returning…

4. False Coronets by Alice Cavender

On the trail of a temporal anomaly, the Doctor and Clara arrive in a London dungeon, where an unlikely prisoner awaits her execution. This is a 19th Century England where the King has been dethroned, and Republicans bearing false coronets hold sway.

While the Doctor seeks out the source of alien interference in the timelines, Clara recruits some local help – and gets invited to a party.

History has gone awry, and Jane Austen must help rewrite it.

    Ordered! Although there have been many brilliant actors playing theDoctor, Matt Smith has, to me, been the best of them all.

      I hope you realise that Matt Smith isn’t in this release, I don’t want you to be disappointed

      Never fear, I realised that, but I’m hoping the writers will be competent, and able to reflect his left-field personality. (Some can, some can’t, so it’s a gamble, but it’s a risk I’m happy to take!)
