Get ready to reach across the stars once more this December, as Big Finish release a new Star Cops audiobook


Created by Doctor Who writer Chris Boucher (The Face of Evil, The Robots of Death, Image of the Fendhal) Star Cops was a BBC series set on a moonbase in the far flung future of 2027. Led by Commander Nathan Spring, the International Space Police Force must contend with an offworld environment that’s become busy and complex enough to have its own criminal underworld. Now new Big Finish audiobook Sins of the Father continues the Star Cops’ adventures with a new case. Written by Mike Tucker (Bernice Summerfield, Doctor Who) and read by original cast member Trevor Cooper (Inspector Colin Devis) it finds Moonbase under attack from a mysterious killer who leaves disturbing messages at each victim’s demise, and whom the Star Cops must unmask while they still can…

Star Cops Producer Xanna Eve Chown summed up the concept. “Jack the Ripper in space!” she exclaims, “What more can you ask for? It’s always a pleasure to work with Mike and Andrew, and this is a fantastic book, with a storyline that is full of surprises and ideas as it unravels, keeping you guessing and thinking throughout.”

Star Cops: Sins of the Father by Mike Tucker

The flickering matrix of lights on Box’s screen changed to a blinking red cursor. Slowly a string of words started to scroll across the screen. As Nathan read them his blood began to chill. “Dear Boss, grand work the last job was. I gave the lady no time to squeal. You will soon hear of me with my funny little games…”


A series of gruesome killings sends shockwaves through Moonbase as the ambitious new Coordinator announces plans to relax restrictions for the people who live and work there. And whoever is sending the chilling ‘Jack the Ripper’ style messages that accompany them seems to have access to Nathan Spring’s personal computer, Box…

Can the star cops solve the puzzle – before it’s too late?
