Iris Wildthyme Series Four Announced!

Big Finish have just revealed details of the fourth series of Iris Wildthyme adventures on audio - as well as this splendid piece of art by Paul Hanley.

Here are the story details and authors:

Whatever Happened to Iris Wildthyme?  by Cavan Scott and Mark Wright
Iris is living the life she always dreamt of, swanning from one party to the next. From the swinging Sixties to the roaring Twenties to Freddie Mercury’s 40th birthday bash via Ancient Rome, Iris has become the ultimate party girl. What more could she want? But who are those sinister ticking figures hiding in the mist? Why are partygoers snapping out of existence? And who is this Panda she keeps talking about?
Iris at the Oche by Mark Wright
Super, smashing, great! It’s the annual Pondside World Darts Championship. As down-at-heel pub darts player Ted Taylor steps up to the oche, Iris realises that the fate of the entire universe depends on the result of this one game of arrows. What are the calculations streaming through Ted’s mind, why are the bullish Hankians determined to drag a Kent Country Club into a temporal rift and will Panda ever get to enjoy his chicken-in-a-basket in peace? Game on!
A Lift In Time by David Bryher
Ever get a tune stuck in your head? Annoying, isn’t it? Especially when it transforms you into a mindless, murderous zombie. After years of righting wrongs and wronging rights, is the fat lady about to sing for Iris Wildthyme? As Panda becomes the next big thing and the bus is stolen by an insane artificial intelligence, Iris’s future finally catches up with her. Ding ding, going down…

  1. So there was this news article on the BBC about the Pandas in Edinburgh, and how they are entering the mating season. Signs are good for them to mate, so maybe more Pandas in the world (which is nice).

    Then the reporter mentioned how the enclosure was especially built for the bears. Suddenly I'm shouting at the screen:
    "Bear?? BEAR?!?"

    What have you done to me?


    1. That's so funny! Panda will be v pleased.
