Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor to Return in New Sets, Audacity and In the Bleak Midwinter

Paul McGann will return in five new full-cast audio dramas, due for release from late 2023, from audio company, Big Finish.

Since January 2001, the Eighth Doctor has enjoyed an extended run of adventures on audio with a whole host of companions. Now, the TARDIS takes us back in time – to meet a new fellow traveller, and an unexplored era of the Doctor’s timeline. Jaye Griffiths debuts as the noblewoman, Lady Audacity Montague, who is about to be propelled from Regency England into the far future and the war between the Cybermen and Vogans.

Producer David Richardson said:

“We’re exploring a different era of the Eighth Doctor’s adventures, when he made a new friend. We’re long before Lucie Miller, the Ravenous, Baker Street or the Time War, and we’ve got the wonderful Jaye Griffiths bringing Audacity to life brilliantly. Hang on? (I hear you cry) Didn’t Jaye recently play Hieronyma Friend in Time War: Cass? Ssshh… Spoilers…”

The Eighth Doctor Adventures: Audacity contains The Devouring by Lisa McMullin (1 part) and The Great Cyber War by Tim Foley (2 parts). Then, The Eighth Doctor Adventures: In the Bleak Midwinter includes Twenty-Four Doors in December by John Dorney (1 part); The Empty Man by Tim Foley (1 part); and Winter of the Demon by Roy Gill (1 part).

The Eighth Doctor Adventures: Audacity and In the Bleak Midwinter are each available to pre-order for £19.99 (as CD box sets and downloads) or £16.99 (downloads only) per title. Or you can also save money by pre-ordering both box sets together in a bundle for £38 (CD box set and download) or £33 (download only).
