Out Now: Big Finish's Doctor Who – Shadow Planet/World Apart

The Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) and Ace (Sophie Aldred) are back in the latest two-parter from Big Finish.
In the next edition to the fine Doctor Who Main Range collection, Doctor Who – Shadow Planet / World Apart, also sees the return of Philip Olivier as Hex.
Shadow Planet by AK Benedict sees the Doctor come face to face with the shadow within.
“Troubled? Anxious? Tormented by self-doubt? Come to Unity, the psychic planet! From our therapy centre beside Unity’s idyllic shores, the Unity Corporation can help you overcome all your problems. How? By using a patented combination of technology and Jungian psychology, we can bring you face to face with your shadow self. The hidden you. The dark you. The you that no-one knows…
Rest assured: the process is perfectly safe. Nothing can possibly go wrong. And that’s guaranteed!”

Then in World Apart by Scott Handcock, well, if you can read this message, then it’s already too late. There’s no way off this planet!
Teasing us that little bit more with what to expect from his mysterious tale, Handcock told Big Finish:
“I absolutely fell in love with Hex when he joined the Seventh Doctor and Ace in The Harvest, so I wanted to tell a story that really focused on their dynamic, throwing them into a situation that tests them to their limits, and gives our leads another chance to shine.”
Doctor Who – Shadow Planet / World Apart is now available to buy on CD or Download, at £14.99 or £12.99 respectively.
