Big Finish UNIT: Nemesis 2 – Agents of the Vulpreen

Available to order from www.bigfinish.com

UNIT v the Quarks!

The UNIT team face an ultimate showdown with the Quarks in the latest box set of full cast audio adventures from Big Finish Productions, due to be released in March 2022.

Fresh from her appearance alongside the Thirteenth Doctor in Doctor Who: Flux, UNIT chief Kate Stewart (Jemma Redgrave) returns with her regular team of Osgood (Ingrid Oliver) and Josh Carter (James Joyce) in four new explosive stories.

This time they are joined not only by Harry Sullivan (Christopher Naylor) and Naomi Cross (Eleanor Crooks) but also former commanding officer, Brigadier Winifred Bambera (Angela Bruce), to take on the menacing Quarks and other alien threats in UNIT: Nemesis – Agents of the Vulpreen.

This new box set, the second of four volumes, is now available to pre-order on collector’s edition CD (for just £24.99) or digital download (for just £19.99), exclusively at www.bigfinish.com.

UNIT has stopped the Eleven’s efforts to retrieve the Arch. But questions remain. How did an artefact imbedded with advanced technology become buried under a prehistoric lava flow? Why does it form a connection with an alien world? And just who are the Vulpreen, the alien race that live there?

Those questions are about to be answered

The Man From Gallifrey by Andrew Smith

As Osgood works flat out to rescue a lost friend, Kate is at a demonstration of a new UK spaceship, the Starseeker. There she meets two people.

Lieutenant Jimmy Tan looks like potential UNIT material, and the stranger called Hasper knows a lot about UNIT and the Eleven. He should – he’s the Celestial Intervention Agency operative who sent the Eleven through the Arch millions of years ago.

Power of the Dominators by Kenneth Grant

Portstone New Town is a living space for the future. A dream community, or so the advertising promises. But UNIT discovers the developers are alien Dominators. Which means there’s a more sinister purpose behind Portstone, and the Dominators’ deadly killer robots – the Quarks – can’t be far away.

The War Factory by Lizzie Hopley

Temporal anomalies strike in the present and the past – 19th century infantry at Belmarsh Prison in the present day, and Brigadier Winifred Bambera is confronted by Tudor warships on the Thames in the late 20th century.

Enquiries by UNIT past and present lead them to the site of Woolwich Arsenal, where the Eleven is trying to create a bridge to another world. And UNIT will learn he’s not the only one on the side of their alien adversaries.

Ten Minutes in Hell by John Dorney

On the alien world on the far side of the Arch, the Vulpreen put their human prisoner through an ordeal. Osgood must lead a desperate rescue attempt – and she’s got ten minutes to do it.

Producer Heather Challands said: “In this new box set we have the return of the Quarks and the Dominators, enemies from the Second Doctor era. But how do Naomi Cross and Harry Sullivan know about them?

“The scale is broader and the stakes are higher. It doesn’t let up for one second. Each episode stretches the team in different ways. Suddenly the universe is bigger and more complicated than it’s ever been before. And Earth is caught right in the middle of it.”

UNIT: Nemesis – Agents of the Vulpreen is available to own as a collector’s edition box set (4CD + download) for just £24.99 or as a digital download only (for just £19.99) exclusively from the Big Finish Website.

Big Finish listeners can save money by pre-ordering the bundle, containing all four volumes in the UNIT – Nemesis series, for just £88 (as a collector’s CD edition) or £79 (as a digital download).

Praise for UNIT: Nemesis – Between Two Worlds:

“UNIT: Nemesis genuinely does have something for everyone – and from the sounds of it, plenty more is in store.” – Doctor Who Magazine

      They’re an interesting challenge in an audio adventure. Surprised that one got through the UNIT recruitment process!
