Big Finish has announced Matthew Waterhouse has reprised Adric for the main range, with Andrew Smith writing the first story, The Star Men, coming January 2017. Not only do we have details of a whole Fifth Doctor trilogy in: DOCTOR WHO: ADRIC ARRIVES IN THE MAIN RANGE!, but the pages for the next Sixth Doctor and Constance trilogy are also updated.
Thoughts on the new main range announcements
I have no axe to grind over Adric, and it’s great to get another Andrew Smith story. This is a crowded TARDIS crew, and I know we are hostage to the history of the show, but I would like more of the Fifth Doctor and Tegan or Turlough. Sarah Sutton’s long connection with Big Finish means we have learned a lot about Nyssa, and I would like some other angles explored. We are where we are!
Phil Mulryne and Matthew J Elliot join Andrew in the writers’ seat, and I recommend reading the news item for Alan Barnes’s comments on Zaltys, the Matthew J Elliot story.
As to the Sixth Doctor, lots of details on the Mike Tucker story, Jamie Anderson directs and writes the second and Matt Fitton concludes in the story Quicksilver. Now as we all know, silver means Cybermen, and there are few details available, except it reveals secrets about Constance’s past, and the Doctors! A bumper December awaits…
