Big Finish have announced an epic list of adventures for the first eight Doctors in 2022
Get ready to jump on board the TARDIS in 2022! Big Finish Productions have announced a raft of brand-new full-cast Doctor Who audio drama box sets for 2022. The fourteen boxsets will be released throughout the year. As revealed in Doctor Who Magazine issue 565, there will be a host of Doctor Who adventures from each of the classic series Doctors released from January to December. 2022 will bring everything from anniversary celebrations to introductions to brand-new friends and foes. You won’t want to miss a single second of these amazing adventures in time and space.
Included in the 2022 schedule is a set of adventures for the Second Doctor set ‘Beyond War Games.’ A title suggesting perhaps, adventures during ‘Season 6B.’ A period long speculated about by fans and professional Doctor Who writers alike, Season 6B posits that the Second Doctor was forced to undertake a series of plausibly deniable missions for the Time Lords between his apparent regeneration in The War Games and the Third Doctor’s arrival on Earth in Speahead from Space. Also listed are the previously announced anniversary celebration, Forty, for the Fifth Doctor and the Fourth Doctor Adventures Series 11.
“Balancing authenticity and originality”
Big Finish Creative Director Nicholas Briggs said: “This is a real opening up of our various Doctors’ adventures – they all now have their own individual series, just as it should be! And for those listeners used to purchasing a yearly subscription of our old Monthly Adventures, this new bundle of box sets will give you the opportunity to order the whole year’s stories in one go, while you can also order by specific Doctor. There are some great new adventures on the way too – I’m particularly excited by what we’ll be doing with new First, Second and Third Doctor Adventures, aiming to make take them into brand new territory, while also giving them a fully era-authentic feel.”
Big Finish senior producer David Richardson added: “It’s been so exciting to see all of the plans and ideas that my colleagues have been circulating for this epic launch of the Doctor box sets in 2022. So exciting that the classic Doctors continue to forge ahead in thrilling new directions, and doing so with that fine balancing act of authenticity and originality. I’ve been busy working away on the new beginnings for the Fifth and Eighth Doctors, but I shall be listening with glee to savour what lies in store for the others.
“We all love Doctor Who at Big Finish. How wonderful that its glorious past continues to be assured a bright future!”
