The Third Doctor Adventures range has always been a very strong one boasting many memorable stories under its belt. Volume 5, however, is a particularly exciting one as for the first time we not only have an actor taking over the voice of the Third Doctor but also a new actor to play Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart and a new actress for the role of Liz Shaw after the passing of Nicholas Courtney and Caroline John in recent years.

Before getting her chance to write for the Main Range of Big Finish Productions, Emma Reeves wrote several hour-long plays in the Torchwood and New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield Ranges. The Moons of Vulpana is her first audio play to be over an hour in length and perhaps an interesting quirk of that fact is that The Moons of Vulpana does not play out like a traditional four-episode serial. Instead the story almost feels like three smaller stories interweaved to create a story arc spread across one story. This is by no means a slight on Emma Reeves’ ability to write a story, as she breaks up potential monotony of Big Finish’s usual four-episode serial format.

With no current release date or details set for Series 9, this could be the very last we see of UNIT, Kate-Lethbridge Stewart, and this team for a very long time. Continue reading
