Out now, this trio of brand-new full cast audio adventures for Lady Christina finds the popular Doctor Who aristocratic adventurer catching up with her father Lord Alfred (William Gaminara) and great-aunt Lady Eugenia (Siân Phillips), whilst uncovering family secrets and dodging the interests of UNIT’s Sam Bishop (Warren Brown) and Jacqui McGee (Tracy Wiles). The captivating cast also features Delroy Atkinson (It’s A Sin), and Rosa Coduri (Pennyworth). They’re joined by Clive Hayward (Diary of River Song), Joseph Kloska (The Crown), James Smillie (Space: 1999). And Big Finish newcomer Sarah Blackstone completes the cast.
More adventures for the Doctor Who universe’s most charming thief
Producer David Richardson said: “I love how much Michelle Ryan cares about the character and this audio range. There’s a lovely collaboration between us all on Lady Christina. Michelle is always contributing ideas, looking for ways to make things better if they can be made better – you’ll find that many of the settings and ideas in this new volume were inspired by things that Michelle suggested.”
Michelle Ryan added: “We’ve had the best time recording these adventures. We’ve had people over in Australia, up in Scotland, all plugged in to the studio by our brilliant tech team. Everybody’s bringing their A-game because the writing’s really good, and there’s so much energy.
“It’s been so great to put her boots back on and get back in the studio – I’ve really had a brilliant time!”
