The Twelfth Doctor Chronicles!

A few weeks ago (I know, I’m timely as ever, ahem) Big Finish released the news that there are to be 12th Doctor Chronicles, and the first volume will be released in February 2020. And I wrote one! Which was a bit exciting, both because it’s my beloved 12th Doctor, and because it was cool to be writing in a new format as the Chronicles incorporate narration into the script. But most importantly, I got to have trebuchets in it. The one true emperor of siege weapons! Firing at things! Writing FX: TREBUCHET FIRES was almost as exciting as writing FX: TARDIS MATERIALISES. That’s how awesome they are.

Also, just to give this belated post Added Value, here’s an exciting (excitement not guaranteed) factoid: I chose the setting, Rochester Castle, due to my entirely reasonable love of the film Ironclad. (I ❤ it so. It too has trebuchets!)

Here’s all the lovely gubbins from the Big Finish website:

Four stories set in the Twelfth Doctor era, narrated by Jacob Dudman.

1.1 The Charge of the Night Brigade by David Llewellyn

The Doctor finds himself in the Crimean War in 1855. There’s a strange sickness stalking the streets of Balaklava and it’s up to the Doctor and Mary Seacole to put a stop to it.

1.2 War Wounds by Mark Wright

When Danny Pink finds the TARDIS door open in a Coal Hill storeroom, he can’t help wondering about Clara’s double life and the truth about the Doctor.

But he gets much more than he bargained for. Stuck amid an alien war, can Danny and the Doctor stop arguing long enough to make it out alive?

1.3 Distant Voices by Lizbeth Myles

Cameron is haunted by strange voices. As she gets on with her job conducting tours around Rochester Castle, she hopes that they’ll just go away. Fortunately for Cameron, the Doctor has joined her tour. He hears the voices too, and he knows what they mean. Time itself is starting to fracture…

1.4 Field Trip by Una McCormack

Osgood gets an offer she can’t resist when the Doctor drops in – her first flight in the TARDIS! The Doctor is calling on Osgood’s expertise to stop an invasion, but what begins as a fact-finding mission quickly becomesomething far more dangerous. Osgood’s intergalactic field trip is about to get very hands-on!

You can preorder it today in CD on digital form.

And, hopefully, there should be more Big Finish news soon!

  1. Hi Lizbeth, I have just pre-ordered The Twelfth Doctor Chronicles and I’m really looking forward to listening to it! I was really impressed by The Astrea Conspiracy. You’re a talented writer as well as a wonderful podcaster. (I am a regular listener to both Verity! & Hammer House of Podcast). Roll on February!
