So, this week I took an old companion to meet a new Doctor - and this is what happened! (We may have had to return to the TARDIS later because Katy left her coat and sunglasses on the console…)

DOCTOR WHO - TONIGHT, 8.30PM, BBC ONE!

The Halloween Recommendation List

nslayton:

The best time of the year is upon us!

If you know me or have been following this blog long enough, you know I’m a gigantic fan of Halloween and all the Gothic horror it entails. It’s not yet October, but I am seeing costumes show up and orange and black candies stocking the shelves, to it’s time…

So, this is keeping me busy at the moment - nice to see the cover finally out there!
You can pre-order this double-disc set now! Out in March! http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/gallifrey-intervention-earth-1108

Due to unforeseeable manufacturing issues, Frankenstein has now been pushed back a few weeks to October. In the meantime, Big Finish have released a spiffy video trailer featuring Arthur Darvill and Nicholas Briggs which you can now view.

Frankenstein can be pre-ordered now, with a special limited edition containing art cards signed by Arthur and Nick: http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/frankenstein-limited-collector-s-edition-1026

Been busy flitting around recording, conventioning and celebrating best mate’s birthdays this weekend! Thanks to all those who swung by Big Finish Day yesterday - particularly those who came to say hello, get Dorian stuff signed, or decided to try out the box set and adaptation on CD… Enjoy!
Speaking of Dorian, series three is done and dusted, ready for its November release… and his nibs sent me the above snap from Paris, having listened to all eight episodes. He’s a bit excited.
Pre-orders for the five-disc set can be placed now, meaning you’ll get it on download the second it’s released (even if you buy the physical CDs, you’ll still get the download so you don’t have to wait for the postie!)http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/the-confessions-of-dorian-gray—-series-three-1092
Until the next time - and I’ll probably have more stuff to share about something soon - squee!S x

Found this on the Tumblr and figured, hell, I’ll reblog this, as it’s rare I’m out and about in a tux…

Recording The Confessions of Dorian Gray S3 (x)

Blimey… if people like this, they should wait till we upload the second video. Lots of more of Alex. (And, admittedly me - but I apologise for that in advance)…

Series three’s speeding along! You’re in for a treat! Pre-order now to listen to it as soon as it’s released (even CD purchasers get the download too) - or catch up with previous episodes now!

So, my lovely housemate James Walsh-Heron kindly nominated me for the ‪Ice Bucket Challenge‬, raising money and awareness for ALS.

I’d also like to mention three charities of my own: Guide Dogs (www.guidedogs.org.uk), Sense (www.sense.org.uk) raising money for deafblind children, and M.E. charity Let’s do it for ME! (www.ldifme.org)

Oh, and I nominate Gary Russell, Lottie Parkyn and Alex Vlahos…

And here’s a pic from the final episode of Dorian series three, The Darkest Hour, where Alex and I are joined by the lovely Tracey Childs, Miles Richardson and Hugh Skinner…

When Dorian 3 comes out I think I want to do a chronological re-listen with the new episodes mixed in. Can you tell us the years for each story or is that currently classified?

I’m saying nothing… yet! But I don’t think we’ll be interfering with your running order too heavily, let’s put it that way.

Oh, and as Alex gave it away in our behind-the-scenes video, I can confirm that, yes, Hugh Skinner will be reappearing as Tobias Matthews for series three of Confessions! Full details here: http://www.bigfinish.com/news/v/dorian-gray—-series-3-behind-the-scenes
During the recent recording of series 3 of Big Finish’s popular The Confessions of Dorian Gray, our intrepid cameraman visited the studio. Read on for a video and news of more casting…
Following our recent casting announcement for the forthcoming third series of The Confessions of Dorian Gray, we are pleased to reveal that Hugh Skinner (W1A, The Wipers Times, Les Miserables) will be returning to the role of Tobias Matthews opposite Alexander Vlahos as Dorian!“Hugh completely inhabited that role from the outset,” explains producer and director Scott Handcock. “Everybody adored him, both to work with and as a character, so it was only a matter of time until we tried to engineer some kind of return. And even though we’re driving Dorian’s story forward in this upcoming series, there are still plenty of opportunities for familiar faces to come back and haunt him, particularly as we hurtle towards his Darkest Hour in the final episode!”Fan favourite Tobias Matthews made his debut in the fourth episode of the very first series -The Heart That Lives Alone - available to download for £2.99, or buy on CD as part of The Complete Series One and Two box set. Other returning faces for series three include Miles Richardson as Harry Wotton (The Picture of Dorian Gray), David Blackwell as Simon Darlow (The Fallen King of Britain) and Bernard Holley as the older incarnation of Dorian himself (The Mayfair Monster)! 
All eight episodes of The Confessions of Dorian Gray: Series Three can be pre-ordered at a special price now on CD or download ahead of its release in November, and Hugh will be hosting a special Dorian Gray podcast where Scott Handcock and Alexander Vlahos answer listener questions closer to the time!For further updates, follow the Dorian Gray Twitter account: @DorianGrayBFP

Very good question… Hugh was indeed rehearsing when we were recording, but the company very kindly released him for a couple of hours one afternoon so we could feature him.
