The new issue of Doctor Who Magazine announces that Big Finish will soon publish Doctor Who: The Audio Scripts Volume Four, which will feature the full scripts, production notes and essays on the company's "villains" trilogy and anniversary special: Nev Fountain's "Omega," Lance Parkin's "Davros," Joseph Lidster's "Master" and Alan Barnes & Gary Russell's "Zagreus". The book will be out in September. Meanwhile, the issue also mentions that famed character actor Leslie Phillips will appear in the forthcoming "Medicinal Purposes" (the August CD release) as Dr. Robert Knox. Also, at the recent United Fan Con East convention, Terry Molloy confirmed that he was returning to the role of Davros for a Big Finish audio to be released later this year, an audio that he performs in with Colin Baker and Bonnie Langford. And according to Nicholas Briggs, William Gaunt, best known to Doctor Who fans as Orcini in "Revelation of the Daleks", will be in the forthcoming "Dalek Empire III" series; Briggs also confirmed, at the recent "Dr. Who and the Daleks" convention, that there would be a fourth 'season' of stories with Paul McGann, India Fisher and Conrad Westmaas in early 2005.
