Hearts of Darkness is the latest box set in Big Finish’s War Master series of audio adventures, starring Derek Jacobi as the Master and Paul McGann as the Doctor.

Recruited by the Celestial Intervention Agency to track down his oldest enemy, the Master finds himself thrown into a mission that will take him into deepest Dalek territory. Abandoned on the planet Redemption, he assembles a crew and acquires a ship. The journey that follows is certain to test them all… and not everyone will survive. But space pirates and living corpses are the least of their worries. Their biggest threat remains at large: a Time Lord who likes to call himself ‘the Doctor’.

The set includes four stories: The Edge of Redemption and The Castle of Kurnos 5 by David Llewellyn and The Scaramancer and The Cognition Shift by Lisa McMullin.

Hearts of Darkness is available in October from bigfinish.com, priced £24.99 on CD or £19.99 to  download. We’ve got FIVE copies of the CD to give away. Fancy trying to win one? Answer the following question correctly to be in with a chance:
