Indeed it does 'fugit'! The working year has begun in earnest and recording started yesterday on book two of the new epic saga (details coming next month - hopefully), which went very well; actually managed to record 224 pages yesterday, which is a first for me, then did some pick ups on the first story in the series. This first story is not yet published and the author had decided on a few changes before we hit the very tight deadline. I had also made a mistake and misread a word, which was picked up in the editing process. Because of a slight re-jig in the recording schedule, I'm 'free' today, which allows me to post an update here and gives me a little more time to prepare for next week's recording with Games Workshop, which includes an audio book, an audio drama and an audio drama narration...
But on to news of further January audio releases. After the audio book Ravenlord
and audio drama The Diary of River Song
comes the next instalment of The Realmgate Wars
from Games Workshop and here are some details:
Finally, the Hallowed Knights reach their goal: the underworlds of
Shyish and an audience with Nagash himself. On the Bridge of Seven
Sorrows, Lord-Celestant Tarsus will meet his destiny.
At last, the great search for the Nine Gates is over as Tarsus and the
Hallowed Knights reach the lair of the Great Necromancer himself,
Nagash. Here, in the dark hollows of one of the underworlds of Shyish,
the Stormcast Eternals will meet their fate. As they stand in the shadow
of death, they must trust that their vampiric guide, Mannfred von
Carstein, has not played them false.
Performed by Gareth Armstrong, John Banks, Toby Longworth, Saul Reichlin, Luis Soto and Ramon Tikaram
Written by Josh Reynolds and Directed by Matthew Renshaw

Next to be released this month comes from Big Finish and is the beginning of the fifth series of Doctor Who adventures featuring the fantastic Tom Baker. Here are some details:
A modulated frequency wave cancellation signal isn’t something that the
Doctor and Romana expect to detect in 1960s London. But then they don’t
expect to find Professor Lanchester, the man who invented it, lying
unconscious. Or MI5 investigating.
With the help of MI5 Agent Miller, Lanchester’s daughter Jill, and his
nephew a pirate radio DJ called Mark, the Doctor, Romana and K-9
investigate. They soon discover that there is more at risk than they
imagined, and an alien invasion is about to begin.
Can the Doctor identify and defeat the aliens in time? Will Romana
manage to find a recombinant transducer before it’s too late? And how
will K-9 cope with his new job?
Tom Baker The Doctor Lalla Ward Romana John Leeson K9
Karl Theobald Mark Lanchaster Phil Mulryne Barnaby Miller Alix Wilton Regan Jill John Banks Derek Fretus
Written by Justin Richards
Directed by Nicholas Briggs

There's more to come this month in terms of my audio releases and here's a bit of a teaser for what's coming up in January.
In the meantime, I think I'd better get back to doing some homework in
preparation for the rest of recording this week and next!
...all for now, more just as soon as it happens!
