Back by popular demand is a second volume of Big Finish’s Classic Doctors, New Monsters series and the Doctor in the limelight is the fifth Doctor who faces the Racnoss.
The Racnoss are a race of huge ravenous spiders who made their first appearance in the 2006 Doctor Who TV Christmas special – The Runaway Bride starring Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) and then guest star Catherine Tate (Donna Noble).
Familiar Faces Return
In ‘Classic Doctors, New Monsters Volume 2’, fifth Doctor (Peter Davison) encounters the creatures in an earlier more chaotic time. Davison is joined by Doctor Who regular Adjoa Andoh who plays the Racnoss Empress, a megalomaniac engaged in a civil war with her crippled husband, the Emperor, played by Nigel Planer. Andrew French and Lisa Kay also return for more Doctor Who shenanigans.
This second volume is directed by Barnaby Edwards who comments, “We started work on the second Classic Doctors New Monsters box set today and I couldn’t be happier. The Racnoss are back – and with the most fabulous cast a director could hope for.”
