The CW has released ten images from Wednesday's Supernatural.

New Eighth Doctor Audio Range

Big Finish has announced that a new range of 8th Doctor adventures titled Doom Coalition will begin this fall. The 16-part series will star Paul McGann as the Doctor and Nicola Walker and Hattie Morahan as his companions Liv Chenka and Helen Sinclair. The first story will introduce the Eleven (played by Mark Bonnar), a deranged Time Lord who has kept all of his personalities and has escaped from his prison on Gallifrey. Producer David Richardson commented,
The overall story of Doom Coalition was devised by myself and Ken Bentley over the course of many walks to the studio. Our framework has been fleshed out by a fantastic team of writers, and realised by a brilliant cast – and I can’t wait for the roller-coaster to begin in November.

Helen is from 1963. She was, in part, inspired by Doctor Who’s first producer Verity Lambert – she’s a driven, career-minded woman in a male-dominated profession. And she’s a head-strong and capable companion in the mould of Barbara Wright, Sarah Jane Smith and Tegan Jovanka.

Hattie had been on our radar for some time and we’d been waiting for the right role to come along. When we were recording Dark Eyes 4 Hattie’s name came up during conversation and Paul got very enthusiastic, telling us how much he’d like to work with her. The pieces just fell into place. It was the most effortless casting ever.
Volume 1 will be released in October priced US$20 for download and $29.46 for CD. The remaining three volumes will span into 2017.
