‘Alien Werewolf in London’ concludes the Seventh Doctor / Mags trilogy started by ‘Monsters of Gokroth’ and continued in ‘Moons of Vulpana‘ with the pair reunited with Ace in the punk era London of the 1990’s. She’s called the Doctor about a strange estate nearby that has had an odd and rather terrified creature in confinement for a very long time. There is of course a bigger secret surrounding the inhabitants of the mansion itself who all have a nasty little blood-sucking secret hiding behind their perfect exteriors.

Getting David Tennant to reprise his role as the Tenth Doctor is one of the biggest successes in Big Finish’s recent years and after two successful volumes of adventures, they are back with Volume 3.
