The War Master to meet UNIT in new Doctor Who audios

A new set of Doctor Who audio dramas from Big Finish will see UNIT and the War Master join forces for the first time as they face off against the Cybermen.

Out next spring, UNIT - Cyber Reality stars Jemma Redgrave as UNIT chief Kate Stewart, who finds herself forced to rely on help from a less than trustworthy source in the form of Derek Jacobi's War Master.

The new set of audio plays will be the third to star Jacobi as the Master who lived through the Time War, with his own series The War Master - Only The Good out next month and a further appearance to follow in February 2018's Gallifrey: Time War.

UNIT - Cyber Reality features four new missions for the UNIT team from experienced Big Finish writers Matt Fitton and Guy Adams:

6.1 - Game Theory by Matt Fitton
6.2 - Telepresence by Guy Adams
6.3 - Code Silver by Guy Adams
6.4 - Master of Worlds by Matt Fitton

Joining Redgrave and Jacobi in the new stories are Ingrid Oliver (Osgood), James Joyce (Captain Josh Carter), Ramon Tikaram (Colonel Shindi), Warren Brown (Sam Bishop) and Nicholas Briggs (The Cybermen).

UNIT - Cyber Reality is available to pre-order now from Big Finish at £23 on CD or £20 on digital download ahead of the boxset's May 2018 release. The upcoming boxset is also available to pre-order in a bundle with the UNIT range's seventh and eighth series as well as the fifth series UNIT - Encounters, out later this month.
