Gallifrey: Time War

Three more box sets, depicting what happened to the Time Lords’ home planet in the ultimate battle across time and space, will be released over the next few years, made by Big Finish Productions in association with BBC Studios.

Following on from the events of Gallifrey: Time War Volume One, we’ll find out who survived and whether Romana and Narvin live to see Gallifrey fall…

More tales of intrigue and political manoeuvring from the seat of Time Lord power are coming, with three more volumes from the homeworld of the Doctor now confirmed. After the events of Gallifrey: Time War Volume One, not all the characters escaped unscathed and, in a Time War, whole civilisations can become pawns in a larger battle.

Four new stories in the Gallifrey saga arrive in March 2019. Gallifrey: Time War Volume Two comprises of:
  1. Havoc by David Llewellyn
  2. Partisans by Una McCormack
  3. Collateral by Lisa McMullin
  4. Assassins by Matt Fitton
The Time Lords and the Daleks have opposed one another across millennia. But now, their conflict tips into an all-out Time War, and nowhere across the universe of spacetime is safe.

Battle plans will be drawn, allies recruited, and innocents caught in the crossfire.

Gallifrey is going to war, and the cosmos will never be the same again.

Following the events of the first series, a new Time Lord president joins the ranks. Terrence Hardiman (who listeners will recognise as the titular role in the children’s BBC series The Demon Headmaster) plays Rassilon, joining Lalla Ward as Romana and Seán Carlsen as Narvin.

Director and writer, Scott Handcock, tells us more: “I’ve felt very lucky to play in the Gallifrey sandbox for its most recent releases, but it’s an even bigger thrill to take us into the Time War and explore how that epic, devastating event impacts upon the lives of our characters.”

Gallifrey: Time War Volume One is available for £35 on CD and £30 on download from www.bigfinish.com

Gallifrey: Time War Volumes Two, Three and Four are available for pre-order now ahead of their release in March 2019, February 2020 and February 2021, each at £23 on CD or £20 on download from www.bigfinish.com.
