Doctor Who Magazine is including a free promotional CD in issue 300 from Big Finish, this has a new version of the AV story Vilgreth, with Sylvester McCoy as the Doctor. 

The story is called Last of the Titans and co-stars Nicholas Briggs as Vilgreth, Alistair Lock as Stelpor, it is 31:35 long and includes a short rearrangement of the Who theme by Alistair.  (It was recorded in the same session as Summoning of the Scourge.)

Also included is episode one of Storm Warning, the new Paul McGann audio, in readiness for the new stories.

Big Finish have released the new version of The Mutant Phase with Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton (Nyssa). Order it now and let us know what you think of it, especially how it compares to the original.

I have updated the site, very slightly, by adding audio clips for Destructor Contract and Trilexia Threat.

The cover art for Sword of Orion with Paul McGann is now available, not long to wait now... (Is it significant that BF17 = AV17???)

Further details have come to light regarding Kaldor City , the new audio series, involving  Alistair Lock (sound) and Alan Stevens.  Looks like Patricia Merrick (Ria) is playing Justina, as you can see here in this picture (copyright Andy Hopkinson) with Paul Darrow.  And it should be released in the imminent future... More details available here (It also has the fat bloke from Star Cops, yay)
