ABOUT
THE TRANSCENDENCE OF EPHROS

My first ever professional sound design job and what better way to start, working with Big Finish Productions known for their output of audio drama - including Doctor Who, Blake's 7, Terrahawks and many more. "The Transcendence of Eprhos" is the first of two stories in the Third Doctor Adventures Volume Two, Tim Treloar returns as The Third Doctor with Katy Manning as Jo Grant.

Thoughts: Following an audition around Christmas 2015, I was given the job as Sound Designer for this show and I was star struck from the get go, not only was it the second bunch of audios to have Tim Treloar as Big Finish's Third Doctor, but for me this audio was a little full circle with my Big Finish experience. The first Big Finish audio I heard was "The Apocalypse Element" which featured Karen Henson in a supporting role and funnily enough, Ephros featured Karen in a supporting role - fantastic!
Ephros really tested my thinking cap and working cap, to full capacity and I think it paid off. Jamie Robertson's score really elevates the show to bring that authentic 70s sound and I like to think my design contributes to that too.
