Dalek Universe 2
Get ready to further explore Doctor Who: Dalek Universe, the three-volume epic of full cast audio dramas from Big Finish.
With its second volume set for release in July 2021, today the trailer and story details are released for Dalek Universe 2. This trio of tales take the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant), Anya Kingdom (Jane Slavin) and Mark Seven (Joe Sims) deeper into family histories, aboard the strangest of space stations and to a truth that might tear them apart…
This box set also guest stars Blake Ritson (Upstairs Downstairs, Adam Adamant Lives!) as the mysterious Major McLinn, a military commander on a Space Security Service outpost, who is harbouring a dark secret.
These captivating chapters are as follows:
Cycle of Destruction by Roy Gill
After Mark starts behaving oddly, the Doctor and Anya find themselves on a strange planet with their friend missing. Searching for him they find their way to an isolated research base. The corridors show signs of animal incursions and the scientists are behaving strangely. But a big surprise is waiting for them.
Because this is where Mark Seven came from. They’re about to find out who he is. But is that information too dangerous to know?
The Trojan Dalek by John Dorney
The Doctor, Mark and Anya head for an SSS space-station searching for the missing temporal scientist, Arborecc. But the officer in charge denies all knowledge of his presence and demands their departure.
Unwilling to leave so easily, the group split up to investigate… and uncover a heinous plot involving the Doctor’s oldest foes.
Or do they?
The Lost by Rob Valentine
When the Doctor’s latest scheme to get back to the future fails, the team’s ship crashes on a strange world, potentially trapping them for ever.
Searching for replacement parts, they find their way to a building where heart-breakingly familiar faces await them.
Lies are about to be exposed. Everyone will learn the truth. And nothing will be the same again.
Of the Tenth Doctor, David Tennant said: “He’s so full of energy, and hope and kindness – and we’re so in need of kindness, all the time. It’s always lovely to return to the Doctor, and imagine that there’s some beacon of hope, in all his alienness, for humanity out there. It never ceases to give me great joy – it’s a real pleasure, always.”
