While it’s highly likely that Death and the Queen, written by James Goss, will air on 3rd September, a total of six audios have already been confirmed. Would the latter three consist of Volume 2, featuring Billie Piper, or Volume 3, with Jacqueline King and the late Bernard Cribbins? I’m sure we’ll find out in the following weeks.
Kudos to artist and Whovian Matthew Purchase for giving notice on Twitter.
Either way, this is a real opportunity to give casual listeners and fans a taster of some New Series audio dramas by Big Finish. Depending on how successful it turns out, I do hope they’ll also broadcast The Tenth Doctor and River Song, the Out of Time trilogy, or the Dalek Universe series at some point. Maybe next year, as part of the 60th anniversary celebrations?
In the meantime, you can listen on the BBC Sounds website or download the app.
UPDATE 1: Death and the Queen has been confirmed to air on 3rd September.
UPDATE 3: Tardis Central has confirmed a schedule change on Twitter.
