Earlier this year it was announced that Big Finish would be breathing new life into the much loved 80s Gerry Anderson series ‘Terrahawks.’
Late last week Big Finish released official details about the new audio drama, which sees the much anticipated return of the series in audio format.
The official press release is below:
Terrahawks: Volume 1
“Terrahawks, stay on this channel…”
Back in action after thirty years comes Terrahawks, the fondly remembered action adventure comedy originally brought to you by the men who created Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Dick Spanner.
In the not too distant future, the Earth finds itself under constant threat from Zelda, a blood-thirsty android who, along with her fiendish family and monstrous creations, has established a base on Mars. The only thing standing between this evil queen and her quest for the ultimate annihilation of mankind are the Terrahawks – an intrepid band of heroes led by the stern but fair clone, Doctor Tiger Ninestein.
After a considerable period of inaction, the Terrahawks once again find themselves called into action when Zelda initiates a brand new campaign of destruction and devastation. Facing up against terrifying time travellers, fraudulent financial fiascos, sickening stand-ups, and deadly doppelgangers – their new adventures could prove to be the Terrahawks’ most challenging missions to date!
Eight episodes on four CDs, with a bonus, behind-the-scenes CD featuring interviews with the cast and crew.
PLUS! Bonus archive promotional material from the original TV series launch available as a PDF for download.
