New UNIT Audio Available for Pre-Order – Big Finish – Jemma Redgrave

It’s been a long wait but, finally, UNIT are back on audio! Big Finish have announced a new UNIT audio is due for release in November 2021 and it is available for pre-order now on the Big Finish site.

An ancient artefact, a stone arch anachronistically imbedded with electronic circuitry, is recovered following a rupture in an undersea stretch of the Mull lava group in North West Scotland, a geological feature dating from tens of millions of years ago.

UNIT’s investigation will unlock a link to another world and bring them face to face with a new and powerful threat…

As the Ice Warriors are my favourite Doctor Who monster then I’m really looking forward to this one!

The CD is £24.99 and the digital download is £19.99.

Pre-order at Big Finish.

Time is collapsing. Incidents of chaos and devastation are appearing throughout the lives of one Time Lord and his many friends – all fallout from one terrible disaster.

1. Lies in Ruins by James Goss

On a strange ruined world, a renowned archaeologist opens an ancient tomb. Only to find another archaeologist got there first. Professors Summerfield and Song unite to solve a mystery. Then the Eighth Doctor arrives, and things really become dangerous. Because their best friend isn’t quite the man River and Benny remember…

Soon, Kate Stewart and Jo Jones find themselves working alongside the Third Doctor, while Osgood battles to get them home. But this isn’t the first time UNIT has faced this threat. Only before, it seems that Jo Grant didn’t survive…

4. Relative Time by Matt Fitton

Disaster strikes inside the Time Vortex, and the Fifth Doctor is thrown together with someone from his future… someone claiming to be his daughter! Kleptomaniac Time Lord, the Nine, believes it’s his chance to steal something huge. But Jenny just wants her dad to believe in her.

DI Patricia Menzies is used to the strange, but even she is surprised when the eighteenth century itself falls onto her patch. Fortunately, she has the founders of modern policing to help with her enquiries. And when the Sixth Doctor and Charley arrive, they find armed and hostile forces trying to change Earth history forever.

6. Collision Course by Guy Adams

Fallout from the temporal distortions has now reached Gallifrey. To find the cause, Leela and Romana remember travels with the Fourth Doctor to the same world, at different times. The enemy is revealed, and it may take more than one Doctor to prevent the destruction of everything!

“UNIT: Incursions” – Big Finish Audio – Out Now


“UNIT Incursions” is available now – priced £22.99 for CD and £19.99 for download. You can order the boxset here: “UNIT Incursions”

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

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…

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…
