Big Finish The Fifth Doctor Box Set

fifthdoctorboxsetBig Finish The Fifth Doctor Box Set

This box set contains two stories across four discs, plus a bonus ‘behind the scenes’ CD.

Psychodrome by Jonathan Morris

Shortly after surviving the perils of Logopolis, Castrovalva and the machinations of the Master, the new Doctor and his new crew could be forgiven for wanting to take a breather from their tour of the galaxy. But when the TARDIS lands in a strange and unsettling environment, the urge to explore is irresistible… and trouble is only a few steps away.

The world they have found themselves in is populated by a wide variety of the strangest people imaginable – a crashed spacecraft here, a monastery there, even a regal court. And not everyone they meet has their best interests at heart.

With the TARDIS stolen, and the very environment itself out to get them, the travellers face a extremely personal threat. They’ll have to work as a team if they want to get out alive… but can you really trust someone you barely know?

Iterations of I by John Dorney

The house on Fleming’s Island had been left to rot. Ever since a strange and unexplained death soon after it was built, and plagued with troubling rumours about what lurked there, it remained empty and ignored for decades until the Cult moved in. As twenty people filled its many rooms, the eerie building seemed to be getting a new lease of life.

But now it is empty again. The cult found something in its corridors… and then vanished.

Trapped on the island one dark night, the Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and Adric look into the building’s mysteries, its stories of madness and death. Their only chance is to understand what terrible thing has been disturbed here… before it consumes them utterly.

    It took a while to get matthew waterhouse on board big finish.There were always issues between him and janet fielding. Big finish brings them all back together. I,d love to know how they coaxed lalla back with tom. Maybe we,ll get an idea with the interview extras.

      I don’t think they did. I think Tom and Lalla shall be recording in different studios. Tom records at one near his home, which I believe isn’t the main BF recording studio.

      I thought it seemed too good to be true given their acrimonious past and the sarcastic pastings she gave him on the dvd commentaries whenever he was mentioned. Its a shame they couldn,t heal their rift,given how they’ve both moved on with their lives and so much time has passed between them. Talk about holding the grudge.

      Lalla Ward said in a interview that she hated Matthew Waterhouse

      the day of Adam Hartnell: HAHAHAHAH

      as much as I’d love to see Lalla Ward back as Romana, I don’t think it’s fair to bring her and Tom back together after their love relationship, you know they never saw eachother since it ended?

      Me too. Your not alone in thinking that. Gorgeous. Shame she had to deliver loads of duff dialogue.

    Great, but any idea why these are coming out in a box set and not as the usual single releases

      presumably as a special to celebrate the return of Adric (who has not done big finish before)
