The most silkily voiced Master of them all brings his own novel to sinister life for Big Finish
Geoffrey Beevers’ fourth novel, The Withdrawal, was published earlier this year by Fantom Publishing. But now the actor, who played the Master in Doctor Who’s The Keeper of Traken, has voiced a new audiobook. The new version is set for release in December 2019. It’s the result of Beevers teaming up with his long time collaborators at Big Finish Productions.
Set two decades in the future, The Withdrawal provides the Doctor Who actor’s own twisted examination of the classic themes of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. It’s a world where people are willingly connected every second of every day by their technology. And where the greatest phobia is privacy. To be blocked from social media is to be ‘unpersoned’ and the severest punishment society can impose. When one man is threatened with having his online identity withdrawn, he becomes trapped in a nightmare.
