Big Finish Productions has announced it is to dramatise the Russell T Davies Doctor Who novel, Damaged Goods.

The Virgin book was originally published in 1996 as part of the New Adventures range of Doctor Who books. It was the first published Doctor Who story from Davies, who would go on to lead the team who revived Doctor Who in 2005.

The book is being adapted as a two-hour full cast audio written by Jonathan Morris, and to be released in August 2015.

Davies, who is a fan of Big Finish, expressed his pleasure that the story is being revisited
I’ve always been a huge fan of Big Finish, since long before I took the big chair on Doctor Who. So when they asked if they could adapt Damaged Goods… well, to be honest, I asked them what took so long!

Jonny has done the most brilliant job, adapting the novel - there’s lots of fascinating new stuff, while staying very true and faithful to the original story.
The story stars Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor, accompanied in his travels by companions Chris Cwej and Roz Forrester.

Jonathan Morris spoke of his excitment at being asked to adapt the novel
It was genuinely thrilling to be asked to adapt Damaged Goods. An honour, and a great responsibility to do justice to Russell’s extraordinary novel and to not disappoint fans of the New Adventures. I pulled out all the stops to capture the spirit of the novel, the character and Russell’s voice, and the end result is undoubtedly the best Big Finish script I’ve worked on.
Big Finish Productions have just celebrated the 15th Anniversary of their first release, Doctor Who: The Sirens of Time. The anniversary is being marked with a series of offers and tributes on the Big Finish website.
