The Eighth Doctor Encounters the Weeping Angels in Big Finish’s ‘Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor Adventures: Connections’


The Eighth Doctor and his companions Liv and Helen are back for three more adventures in time and space.

In Connections, The Doctor and his companions are invited to the funeral of The Doctor’s old friend Drax. They travel to a haunted space station and encounter Weeping Angels in Modern London.

Paul McGann, Nicola Walker, and Hattie Morahan are back as The Eighth Doctor, Liv Chenka, and Helen Sinclair. Shane Richie (Drax), Nina Wadia (Mimi), Barnaby Jago (Albie Sinclair), Anjella MacKintosh (Denny), and Jeff Rawle (Captain Miles Rozann) are also part of the cast.

Connections is directed by Ken Bentley and produced by David Richardson and is composed of the three following stories:

Here Lies Drax by John Dorney (1 part)

And their surprise gets even bigger when this parcel is itself followed by an invitation… to Drax’s funeral. And that’s just where the surprises start.”

The Love Vampires by James Kettle (1 part)
“Regret can follow people everywhere – even out into deep space, in the shadow of a dying star. When the Doctor, Liv and Helen meet the terrified crew of a space station, all are haunted by faces from the past. But these lost loves are more than mere memories – and they want to feed…”

Albie’s Angels by Roy Gill (1 part)
“When the Doctor and friends hunt down time anomalies in 2020s Soho, Helen steps into the past and meets the brother she thought she’d lost forever. But there are Weeping Angels in London – and one of the stone assassins wants something from the Doctor and Liv…”
