The Doctor and Jamie reunite with Zoe in a new set of adventures from Big Finish this summer

At the end of the Second Doctor’s run in the classic Doctor Who television series, the Time Lords separated him from his companions Jamie and Zoe, who had their memory of him wiped. Since then, Big Finish Productions’ Second Doctor Adventures range has taken up their story. The Time Lords’ Celestial Intervention Agency are forcing the convicted renegade to carry out missions for them. Meanwhile, he’s also reunited with Jamie, whose memories are back.

And their next adventure will bring the third member of the TARDIS crew back on board…

Jamie has gone missing, while Zoe apparently returns after a lifetime away from the TARDIS. Does even the sinister Time Lord Raven realise the terrifying extent of the conspiracy in which she is embroiled? The Doctor and his friends must fight to uncover the truth.

Conspiracy of Raven is a brand-new box set comprising three full-cast audio drama episodes, starring Michael Troughton (son of original actor Patrick) as the Doctor, alongside original TV series actors Frazer Hines and Wendy Padbury as Jamie and Zoe.

The three new stories for the Doctor and his companions are:

Kippers by Nicholas Briggs

The Doctor and Jamie have attempted to break free from performing covert missions for the Time Lord agent Raven. But things haven’t gone according to plan.

Jamie has vanished, Raven finds herself in a familiar yet strangely disturbing location. And all the while, half-glimpsed, unnervingly perceived… something… fluttering, buzzing, tugging at their very souls…

Catastrophe Theory by Mark Wright

When the Doctor comes face to face with Zoe, can he be sure it really is his old friend? Jamie is lost somewhere in the cosmos, and the Doctor must find him.

From a pleasure cruiser on course for destruction, to an alien world invaded by savage warriors, the Doctor faces catastrophe at every turn – but what has become of Raven?

The Vanishing Point by Mark Wright and Nicholas Briggs

Following the threads of a conspiracy twisting throughout all of time and space, the Doctor and his companions head to the Vanishing Point — a mythical place, said to exist somewhere between science and magic. But it is a journey from which they may never return.

“The Doctor finds the truth is more elusive than the alien threat hiding just out of reach”

The Second Doctor Adventures: Conspiracy of Raven also features Emma Noakes reprising her role as Raven, the Doctor’s CIA supervisor. It also features a guest role for Jacqueline King. The actor, of course, played Sylvia Noble in Doctor Who, recently reprised her role the 60th anniversary specials.

Producer and writer Mark Wright said: “The post-War Games adventures of the Second Doctor continue as we delve deeper into a Conspiracy of Raven, but the Doctor finds the truth is more elusive than the alien threat hiding just out of reach.

“It’s such a thrill working on these stories and hearing Michael Troughton’s performance find new dimensions in the role made famous by his father, Patrick. Conspiracy of Raven powers the story forward in a new direction, and it’s never less than a privilege to hear our regular cast bringing these adventures to life.

“We’re a very happy band on these adventures, our studio days full of warmth and fun. This time it was very special to have Wendy Padbury join the team as Zoe Heriot, reuniting her with Frazer Hines as Jamie. It feels so right to honour the history of this classic TARDIS team – but can we be sure all is as it seems?”
