Philip Hinchcliffe, who produced Doctor Who from 1975 to 1977 and oversaw many all-time classic stories including Pyramids of Mars, The Robots of Death and The Talons of Weng-Chiang, is returning to the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and Leela (Louise Jameson) in an audio drama collaboration with Big Finish. 

Philip Hinchcliffe Presents

In September 2014 Big Finish Productions will release Doctor Who: Philip Hinchcliffe Presents, a box set consisting of two epic adventures that will evoke the gothic tone of the period still widely regarded as the “golden age” of Doctor Who.

The Ghosts of Gralstead is a six-part adventure written by Philip with Marc Platt (Ghost Light), and it finds the Doctor and Leela returning to Victorian London, in the year 1860. At St Clarence’s Hospital, respected surgeon Sir Edward Scrivener requires the bodies of the dead… At Doctor McDivett’s Exhibition of Living Wonders and Curiosities, miracles are afoot… And in Gralstead House, the ghost will walk again. Mordrega has come to Earth…

The Devil’s Armada is a four-parter, again written by Philip and Marc, which sees the TARDIS materialise in Sissenden Village in the sixteenth century. Catholic priests are hunted, so-called witches are drowned in the ducking stool, and in the shadows the Vituperon are watching… and waiting…

Doctor Who: Philip Hinchcliffe Presents also includes a special hour-long documentary featuring interviews with Tom Baker, Louise Jameson and Philip Hinchcliffe. It will be launched at Big Finish Day 5 in Slough, which Tom Baker and Philip Hinchcliffe are attending.
