Coming Soon: Big Finish’s The First Doctor Adventures Volume Two

Big Finish have announced details of the second volume of First Doctor adventures, featuring two brand new adventures for the original TARDIS crew.

Starring David Bradley as the First Doctor, who reprises his role alongside his Adventures in Space and Time co-stars Claudia Grant playing Susan, Jemma Powell as Barbara and Jamie Glover as Ian, the release follows on from the Christmas Day launch of the first volume and again sees the Doctor, his granddaughter Susan, and companions Ian and Barbara indulging in some adventurous distractions as they try to get Ian and Barbara back home.

The synopsis for both adventures reads:

The Invention of Death by John Dorney

After an experimental flight, the TARDIS crew find themselves on one of the strangest worlds they have ever encountered.

Alien life takes many forms, and on Ashtallah the travellers find all their preconceptions tested.

But this world is about to make a discovery – and it could mean the end of everything.

The Barbarians and the Samurai by Andrew Smith

In 19th Century Japan, Westerners are forbidden. So when the TARDIS arrives near Lord Mamoru’s castle, the daimyo’s Samurai are soon on their trail.

Uncovering secrets at court and treachery in the ranks, the Doctor and his friends are drawn into intrigue.

And, as a battle begins, they are caught in the middle.

Much like the beginning seasons of Doctor Who on television, The First Doctor Adventures contains historical adventures, keeping that classic mix of science fiction and historical stories. In this case, how will the Doctor and the TARDIS team fare in 19th Century Japan?

The First Doctor Adventures Volume Two is available to pre-order now for release in July from Big Finish on CD or download for £23 and £20 respectively.
