There’s a new set of boxsets coming keeping the story of UNIT going (despite the current TV series indifference to them!). Kate, Osgood and Ice Warriors! Did I mention H*rry S*ll*v*n? Full details below…
Frozen foes and frozen friends
As exclusively revealed in Doctor Who Magazine issue 562, Kate Stewart and her team are back and up against bigger threats than ever before in UNIT: Nemesis.
Prepare to meet enemies ancient and modern in these full-cast audio dramas – including the Ice Warriors, in a tale which sees UNIT encounter the military Martians for the first time.
With the first volume set for release in November 2021, UNIT: Nemesis marks a brand-new era for the UNIT team and the beginning of a new four-box-set arc of adventures.
Old favourites and new faces will team up from stations across the globe, including Kate Stewart (Jemma Redgrave), Osgood (Ingrid Oliver), Josh Carter (James Joyce), Jacqui McGee (Tracy Wiles), Harry Sullivan (Christopher Naylor) and Naomi Cross (Eleanor Crooks).
UNIT – Nemesis 1 is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition CD (for just £24.99) or a digital download (for just £19.99) exclusively from www.bigfinish.com.
An ancient artefact, a stone arch anachronistically imbedded with electronic circuitry, is recovered following a rupture in an undersea stretch of the Mull lava group in North West Scotland, a geological feature dating from tens of millions of years ago.
UNIT’s investigation will unlock a link to another world and bring them face to face with a new and powerful threat…
Co-producer Emily Cook said: “UNIT: Nemesis is like UNIT’s version of Avengers: Assemble! UNIT UK and UNIT Australia join forces in an encounter with the Ice Warriors. Meanwhile, as usual, UNIT is investigating the unexpected… On a submersible off the west coast of Scotland, marine biologist Professor Adam Merchant discovers a large stone arch, which has apparently been buried for millions of years. Where has this mysterious arch come from? And where does it lead to? UNIT is on the case! Unfortunately, someone else is too…”
Co-producer David Richardson added: “A new start, a new era for UNIT – and the beginning of a sixteen-part epic that will see the return of a number of popular monsters. But what is young Harry Sullivan doing here in the 20th Century? And who is his colleague Naomi Cross? UNIT: Nemesis is an important piece of a jigsaw puzzle that has been planned for some time, and a storyline that will last over the coming years.”
UNIT – Nemesis 1 is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition CD (for just £24.99) or a digital download (for just £19.99) exclusively from the Big Finish website.
