Big Finish has announced that Tom Baker is returning to the TARDIS for two brand new full cast Doctor Who – The Fourth Doctor Adventures set for release in March 2022.
Doctor Who – The Fourth Doctor Adventures: Series 11 – Solo finds Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor with the TARDIS all to himself – but not for long, as he travels to a Gallifreyan moon to study a book that could alter time itself, and runs into new friend Margaret Hopwood (Nerys Hughes) in a haunted English village where residents are terrorized by an ominous figure…
Solo features the following two thrilling tales:
Blood of the Time Lords
The book known as The Dischord Grimoire is an incredibly powerful tome, believed capable of altering the true passage of time itself. And the Doctor has it in the TARDIS.
Wanting to look into this mysterious opus further, he decides to take it to an old friend in The Recusary – a monastery-like retreat on a moon of Gallifrey.
But he’s chosen an inauspicious time to arrive. Something else is visiting the Recusary. And this something hasn’t brought a book with it… but death.
The Ravencliff Witch
The TARDIS lands in Ravencliff, a small town on the English coast that stands in the shade of a newly built power station. And that just happens to be haunted.
Every now and then a spectral figure is glimpsed on the beach – the Ravencliff witch. And every time she appears, it’s the prelude to disaster.
The Doctor has to solve the mystery of her appearances if he wants to prevent a catastrophe. But he won’t have to do it alone – as he has the help of Margaret Hopwood, a renowned sculptor destined to play a big part in his life.
“The Doctor’s travelling solo in the eleventh series of The Fourth Doctor Adventures – but he’s by no means alone,” states script editor John Dorney. “The scripts from Timothy X Atack and David Llewellyn are quite a contrast, with one finding a lot of Time Lords in an unusual location and the other set on the English coast. And of course this set brought the incomparable Nerys Hughes into the team, playing a one-off character so well, with such chemistry with Tom that we knew we had to bring her back. Attentive listeners may have caught a cameo from her character Margaret back in Ravenous 3 – but this is where her story really begins.”
Doctor Who – The Fourth Doctor Adventures: Series 11 – Solo will release in March 2022 and is available to pre-order now from Big Finish.
