Big Finish - "UNIT - Shutdown" available for Pre-Order

The second part of Big Finish's new UNIT series - UNIT Shutdown - is now available for pre-order priced £20.00.  The boxset will be released in May 2016.  The synopsis is below and this time we get brand new aliens called the Tengobushi.  With the first release - UNIT Extinction - being such a success (and believe me, it's a terrific audio - review coming soon), I really cannot wait for the second in the series:
Kate Stewart and her UNIT team investigate and confront alien attacks on the planet Earth in the new 5 disc boxset. OUT IN MAY!

2.1 Power Cell by Matt Fitton
On the trail of missing alien technology, Kate Stewart encounters the ambitious Felicity Lyme. Who are Cerberus – and what are they doing in the London Docklands?

2.2 Death in Geneva by Andrew Smith 
With Tengobushi assassins on their tail, Kate and Osgood retreat to UNIT Command in Geneva. High in the mountains, Captain Josh Carter comes face to face with the enemy…

2.3 The Battle of the Tower by Andrew Smith 
As London sleeps, an alien horde rises from the shadows. The Tower has been infiltrated – and UNIT must hold the line. At any cost. Lock and load…

2.4 Ice Station Alpha by Matt Fitton 
Caught between human greed and an unstoppable alien power, Kate Stewart leads her forces on one last mission to the Antarctic. It’s UNIT against the world….
