Big Finish – Vortex Magazine previews “UNIT: Revisitations” starring Jemma Redgrave


The new “Vortex” magazine from Big Finish features a preview of “UNIT: Revisitations” starring Jemma Redgrave. The boxset is due for release in November and features two “returns” from “Classic Who”. The Wirrn , from the 1975 story, “The Ark in Space” star in the two part “Hosts of the Wirrn” written by Chris Chapman. “The Ark in Space” is a pretty unforgettable story – it was Tom Baker’s second story and features his beautifully delivered “indomitable” speech. Besides, who can forget the green painted bubblewrap?

“Open the Box” is written by Roy Gill and sees the return of Captain Chin Lee from the 1971 story, “The Mind of Evil”. Roy Gill is responsible for the quite fabulous “Invocation” which is part of the “UNIT Encounters” boxset. Captain Chin Lee was a definite highlight of “The Mind of Evil” and it will be great to hear Pik-Sen Lim reprise her role.

You can download the free “Vortex” magazine from Big Finish.

UNIT Revisitations – Synopsis

Big Finish have released the synopsis for “UNIT – Revisitations” which is due for release in November:

Over the years, UNIT has faced hundreds of extra-terrestrial threats. The Black Archive holds relics of many such encounters, and UNIT’s files are filled with reports of strange and dangerous aliens.

And sometimes, they come back.

7.1 and 7.2 Hosts of the Wirrn by Chris Chapman

After the world’s strangest interview, UNIT’s latest recruit, Shana Siddiqui, hits the ground running to help Osgood with her latest assignment.

The Master left UNIT a parting gift – something alien and deadly. The Wirrn have come to Earth, and now they are free…

7.3 Breach of Trust by David K Barnes

An alien vessel arrives on Earth, its occupants seeking refuge, and Osgood takes them in.

But there is reason to mistrust this cry for help. The files show that UNIT has faced the Kalvyri before. What else they reveal will set Kate at odds with her most trusted friends.

7.4 Open the Box by Roy Gill

In the years since the Stangmoor Prison incident, Captain Chin Lee found a new calling. She now heads up an international organisation, dedicated to meditation and ‘mental fortitude’ training.

But there is a menace deep inside the Pandora Institute. And Kate, Osgood and Josh must face their darkest fears…
