The Valeyard in Doctor Who

Big Finish have revealed that this year’s exclusive subscriber-only audio drama sees the Sixth Doctor back in court, but this time, at the Trial of the Valeyard.

Doctor Who: Trial of the Valeyard reunites Colin Baker's Sixth Doctor with Michael Jayston as the Valeyard and Linda Bellingham as the Inquisitor in a tense courtroom drama. The three were last seen sharing the screen in 1986's epic fourteen-part tale Doctor Who: The Trial of a Time Lord. The tables are turned in this new story as the Valeyard is forced to face up to his evil deeds - how will the Doctor judge his alternate self?

What is the true nature of the Valeyard? What secret does he hold? And will he bring down the Doctor as fate catches up with him? With a script by Mike Maddox and Alan Barnes, Trial of the Valeyard is directed by Barnaby Edwards.

This special tale will be released in December to all those who subscribe to the Doctor Who main range including December’s monthly title. It will also be available to buy a year later in December 201, or can be chosen as a free gift for those who order a 12-month CD or download subscription.
