Big Finish – “UNIT: Incursions” – Story Details

Big Finish have released more details for “UNIT: Incursions” which is released in April 2019.

8.1 This Sleep of Death by Jonathan Morris
8.2 Tempest by Lisa McMullin
8.3/8.4 The Power of River Song by Guy Adams

Threats to our planet come in many forms. Some are alien visitations, some lay dormant in Earth itself, and occasionally, danger arrives with a big gun and fantastic hair.
Whatever the threat, whoever the enemy, UNIT is ready to defend the world.

8.1 This Sleep of Death by Jonathan Morris

Abbey Marston. UNIT’s dark secret. A place where the laws of space and time, life and death, can be suspended. Where remembering the departed has consequences… When UNIT faces a threat from a dead man, Kate has no choice but to return to Abbey Marston once more, to disturb the sleep of death. But the Static are waiting…

8.2 Tempest by Lisa McMullin

When the planet’s weather systems start behaving strangely, Osgood is worried. Soon, she and Sam Bishop are heading to a remote Scottish island where an eccentric old woman speaks to the wind itself.
Meanwhile, Kate Stewart visits a deep-sea oil-rig where strange things are afoot. A tempest is coming, and it could be disaster for the entire world.

8.3 The Power of River Song part 1 by Guy Adams

UNIT has been assigned to monitor the switch-on of a revolutionary new power system – they know from experience such things can be tricky.
Nearby, Osgood and Lieutenant Bishop investigate mysterious disappearances – and appearances of trans-temporal phenomena. Kate would like to ask the Director some questions, but she’s proving strangely elusive… until there’s a murder.

8.4 The Power of River Song part 2 by Guy Adams

There’s a dead body in the power station. River Song is the prime suspect. And Kate is most concerned by the identity of the victim.
Meanwhile, Sam and Jacqui chase Vikings, while Osgood finds herself out of time. As deadly predators focus their attention on Earth, it seems activating the power of River Song could spell the end of everything…

This Sleep of Death by Jonathan Morris follows on from the Sixth Doctor’s adventure Static, the Main Range release from December 2017. What UNIT now encounter will surely conclude a truly terrifying story.

Tempest by Lisa McMullin sees the UNIT team on a mission in Scotland where oil rigs are under threat in the Hebrides, and there’s a chilling breeze in the air…

And The Power of River Song by Guy Adams will find the UNIT team helping a scientific project for total renewable energy, led by a mysterious curly-haired director. And on this mission, one of the team will make the ultimate sacrifice for time itself…

The UNIT team are back together, with Jemma Redgrave playing Kate Stewart, Ingrid Oliver as Osgood, Warren Brown as Lieutenant Sam Bishop, and James Joyce as Josh Carter. Two new recruits also join the team as Andrew French plays Sergeant Warren Calder and Ajjaz Awad plays Private Meghan Coates.

Plus Alex Kingston reprises her role as Professor River Song and Tracy Wiles reprises her role as Jacqui McGee. Also staring in this series are Hywel Morgan, Alexandra Mathie, Chris Jarman, Enzo Squillino Jnr and Leighton Pugh.

UNIT: Incursions will be released in April 2019, priced at £23 on CD or £20 on download. Don’t forget that every CD purchase unlocks a download exclusive via the Big Finish app or the Big Finish website.

Big Finish have also released a rather good trailer together with a synopsis of the stories:

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…

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.
