Luther Arkwright

Classic comic The Adventures of Luther Arkwright comes to audio.

Big Finish have recorded an adaptation of the comic starring David Tennant (Casanova/Blackpool), Paul Darrow (Blake's 7) and Siri O'Neal (Moondial) for release in a 3 CD set in March 2005.

Luther Arkwright is unique. The only man who can travel between parallel worlds and fight against the Disruptors – creatures who wish to create havoc across the multiverse. Luther (David Tennant) tries to thwart the Disruptors' ultimate plan of domination in an alternative England where many things are familiar - but nothing is the same. It is an England that did not see the Restoration of the Monarchy after the English Civil War and has been under the rule of the Puritan Parliamentarians for hundreds of years.

With the help of Rose (Siri O'Neal), Luther must bring down the government of the corrupted Nathaniel Cromwell (Paul Darrow) – but there are others who see their chance. England is ripe for the taking by the European superpowers that are preparing to invade.

Many in England dream of past glories and an Empire ruled by the long exiled Kings and Queens of England. A second Civil War is brewing - its aim to bring Prince Charles to the throne and Luther must help to ensure that the right side wins - not just for the sake of this world, but for all worlds...
