Be prepared to be terrified in Big Finish’s latest UNIT adventures – UNIT: Silenced, as Steven Moffat’s scary creations the Silence return for four brand new stories.
Last seen facing off against Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor the Silence are back again to rise against humanity. But this time they have UNIT Cheif Kate Stewart (Jemma Redgrave) and scientist Petronella Osgood (Ingrid Oliver) to spar against.
Redgrave and Oliver will be joined in the fight by Warren Brown as Lieutenant Sam Bishop, James Joyce as Captain Josh Carter and Ramon Tikaram as Colonel Shindi in these new audio tales from Matt Fitton and John Dorney.
1. House of Silents by Matt Fitton
There is no record of the presence of an alien species known as ‘The Silents’ on Earth. UNIT has never engaged hostiles capable of editing themselves from observers’ memories.
There is no evidence that such an opponent, if real, is regrouping and beginning a new plan of infiltration and manipulation.
Kate Stewart and her team are in no mortal danger. How can they be, when they don’t even know the enemy exists?
2. Square One by John Dorney
It’s business as usual at UNIT, and thankfully, Kate Stewart has no immediate threats to concern her. Or so she believes.
But when Sam Bishop returns from leave, he notices things aren’t quite as they seem. Soon he and Osgood are on the trail of an elusive enemy.
Meanwhile, Kenneth LeBlanc and his controversial political movement gather momentum, and one UNIT team member isn’t quite themselves…
3. Silent Majority by John Dorney
Kenneth LeBlanc looks set to lead his party to national victory, overturning political opinion and taking the polls by storm. UNIT can only stand and watch as a silent revolution takes place.
But who are LeBlanc’s real backers? And what use to them is the triumph of a leader who seems to be nothing more than a liability?
The Silents are about to make the headlines.
4. In Memory Alone by Matt Fitton
When Sam Bishop and Osgood visit an orbiting space station for a routine mission, they have no idea that they are part of an alien scheme, years in the planning.
As the global situation spins out of control, Kate seeks help from an unlikely source.
The Silents are not done with humanity yet – and they will have their revenge.
