❉ The Third Doctor and his much-loved former companion embark upon new adventures together in a brand-new audio box set.
The ever-popular Katy Manning returns as Jo Jones (née Grant) – years after the former UNIT employee ended her TARDIS travels. Now, Jo is about to reunite with her Doctor at a very important point in her life, in three full-cast audio dramas, due for release in February 2023 from Big Finish Productions.
She’s joined by the acclaimed Tim Treloar, once again metaphorically donning the Third Doctor’s velvet jacket – brilliantly recapturing Jon Pertwee’s iconic Doctor Who performance.
Doctor Who – The Third Doctor Adventures: The Return of Jo Jones is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition 3-disc CD box set (+ download for just £19.99) or a digital download only (for just £16.99), exclusively from www.bigfinish.com.
Producer Heather Challands says: “We’re always looking for new ways to celebrate an old and much-beloved era. This instalment of The Third Doctor Adventures has not one, not two, but three new two-part standalone adventures!
“Ranging from bird attacks on the Isle of Wight, to political unrest in a repressive regime looking to robotically control all elements of risk, and then to a haunted dock under an alien curse. The Doctor is reunited with Jo Jones, setting off on another trip around the universe… and I couldn’t be more thrilled!”
Beginning on Earth, then heading out into a whole universe of possibilities, the Doctor Who stories in this box set are:
Supernature by Matt Fitton
The Conservitors by Felicia Barker
The Iron Shore by Lizzie Hopley
Tim Treloar has portrayed the Third Doctor, originally played on television by Jon Pertwee, for Big Finish since 2013’s anniversary special, The Light at the End.
Katy Manning regularly played Jo Grant on screen from 1971 to 1973, with her last Doctor Who episode being The Green Death. Katy has since reprised her role several times on screen – most recently in The Power of the Doctor – and in many Big Finish audios.
