UNIT: Silenced – Coming November 2016 from the Worlds of Doctor Who
Kate Stewart faces a forgotten invasion in Big Finish’ upcoming New Series box-set. Silence Will Rise!
This Autumn, the Earth will once again come under threat from the arch-enemies of the Eleventh Doctor, the Silence. These alien parasites have been trapped on Earth since the events of The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon, but Big Finish’s new box-set will see them breaking through the Time Lord’s trap, leaving the world defenceless!
Commanding the defence against the extraterrestrial invaders is Kate Stewart (Jemma Redgrave), the daughter of legendary UNIT leader Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. Kate will once again be supported by her loyal technical advisor Petronella Osgood (Ingrid Oliver) and heroic UNIT Captain Josh Carter (James Joyce).
Reinforcing the UK team is international troubleshooter Lieutenant Sam Bishop (Warren Brown). Returning to duty after the apocalyptic events of UNIT: Extinction is Colonel Shindi (Ramon Tikaram), whose battle against the Autons has taken a heavy toll.
Together, the UNIT team will have to take on the resurgent threat of the Silence, now voiced by master-of-monsters and Big Finish Executive Producer Nicholas Briggs.
Keeping a close eye on both sides of the conflict is journalist Jacqui McGee (Tracy Wiles), desperate to uncover UNIT’s activities to the public after her encounter with the Nestene Consciousness. But Jacqui’s investigation uncovers a far greater conspiracy…

This Autumn, Kate Stewart and the UNIT team face a forgotten invasion. The Eleventh Doctor’s arch-enemies have returned; and Silence Will Rise…
Created by Doctor Who Executive Producer Steven Moffat, the Silence are some of the most popular and iconic monsters to have been introduced in the New Series of Doctor Who. A breakaway religious group from the far future, these alien parasites possess the horrifying ability to induce amnesia in anyone who sees them – allowing them to control humanity from behind-the-scenes.
The Eleventh Doctor managed to defeat the creatures in their debut story The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon; but UNIT: Silenced will see them break through the Time Lord’s trap, leaving Earth defenceless.
The world’s fate is once again in the hands of Kate Stewart (Jemma Redgrave) and her team. But how can UNIT fight an enemy that no one knows is there?
Written by Matt Fitton and John Dorney, UNIT: Silenced is available to pre-order today for just £20, exclusively from the Big Finish website. It will be released through other retailers from January 31st 2017.
