The New Adventures

From bigfinish.com, news of my Doctor Who story...
Coming out this November, Sylvester McCoy’s calculating and comic Seventh Doctor returns with two companions from the Virgin Books’ New Adventures of Doctor WhoYasmin Bannerman plays Roz Forrester and Travis Oliver plays Chris Cwej in Doctor Who – Seventh Doctor: The New Adventures.
The Virgin Books’ New Adventures of Doctor Who took the reigns of Doctor Who after the television series finished after its 26th season back in 1989. The novels took a darker, deeper approach to Doctor Who, using longer storylines and ideas that wouldn’t have made it to the television screen.
This new box set includes four stories:
1. The Trial of a Time Machine by Andy Lane
2. Vanguard by Steve Jordan
3. The Jabari Countdown by Alan Flanagan
4. The Dread of Night by Tim Foley
Producer and director Scott Handcock explains: “As a fan who grew up in the era of the New Adventures novels, I was thrilled when David Richardson offered me the opportunity to tackle a new box set featuring the Seventh Doctor, Roz Forrester and Chris Cwej. The feedback for the Novel Adaptations was fantastic, and getting the chance to tell completely new stories with this TARDIS team has been a joy!
“We’ve tried to make the most of the box set format, so we have four original hour-long stories reuniting the Doctor, Roz and Chris – and, of course, Sylvester, Yasmin and Travis, who struck up such a brilliant rapport on the adaptations. The four new tales tackle very different genres, in very different settings and times, with Chris and Roz creator Andy Lane kicking off the box set with his story, The Trial of a Time Machine. There really is something for everyone!”
The New Adventures will be released in November 2018, available as a CD box set for £23 or on download at £20 from www.bigfinish.com

Empire of Monsters

Monsters are real. 

In the husk of an abandoned city, ghosts haunt the streets, dinosaurs hunt in the parks and mythical creatures stalk the neighborhood. The only human survivors have been forced back to an encampment on the outskirts. 

Kate remembers the city before the monsters appeared, and is prepared to fight to reclaim it from them. Zing, the youngest, has only ever known a life behind the walls of the encampment - but that's about to change. Tyler and Gary, two petty criminals on the run, realise they've landed in hot water when their spacecraft crashes nearby. 

The monsters are getting more aggressive, and supplies are dwindling. Will they escape? Will the monsters get them?

The Future Boys return! Empire of Monsters is a new novella from Steve Jordan, available to pre-order now on Amazon. Out June 14th!

Big Finish / Doctor Who Commission

I'm delighted to say that I have been commissioned by Big Finish Productions to write a Doctor Who audio drama. Big Finish are perhaps best known for their Doctor Who ranges and various spin-offs, but also produce audio drama featuring Sherlock Holmes, Blake's 7, 2000 AD, among others. It's a real thrill to be working with them -  I've been a fan of their excellent output for many years.

I can't divulge any of the details of the story at this point - but as you can probably imagine, I'm pretty darn excited. I'll tell you more as soon as I am able.
