This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the Alien franchise. To honor the occasion, Audible is bringing author William Gibson’s lost script for Alien III to life for the first time in a full multicast audio presentation. Reprising their iconic roles from Aliens are Michael Biehn as Corporal Hicks, and Lance Henriksen as the android, Bishop.
Gibson’s script was written in 1987 as a follow-up to Aliens, but his version of the story never made it to the big screen. Over the years, the script was eventually leaked online giving fans a glimpse at what could’ve been.
The audio drama begins with a recap of key moments from Aliens, which is incredibly handy if it's been some time since you last saw that film. The most immediate change from the version of Alien 3 we got in theaters is that Hicks and Newt both survive.

Lost Doctor Who stories return on audio

Two classic Doctor Who television stories that didn’t get past the pre-production stage are being resurrected this year as full-cast audio productions. Peter Davison and Colin Baker return as the Fifth and Sixth Doctors in two fantastic releases by Big Finish Productions in association with BBC Studios.
The iconic British science fiction series of Doctor Who has been running for over 55 years, and it has inspired and nurtured numerous writers, directors, performers and creatives. Throughout the process of producing the TV series, however, many stories didn’t make it to our screens for a variety of reasons. Big Finish Productions is now bringing back two of the stories that were previously left on the production room floor in the 1980s.
The Ultimate Evil by writer Wally K Daly and Nightmare Country by Stephen Gallagher are returning on audio this November. In The Ultimate Evil, Colin Baker’s colourful Sixth Doctor and Nicola Bryant’s Peri are on a holiday gone awry, while Nightmare Count…
