During the events of Doctor Who - Ravenous 2, Liv Chenka left the Doctor and the TARDIS behind. Just for one year. A year during which she would live on Kaldor, and get to know her sister Tula all over again.
But Kaldor is going through a period of tumultuous change. Technology is changing at an advanced rate - the robots are evolving, artificial intelligence is adapting, and with these changes so politics is altering too. Dangerously.
Can Liv and Tula make a difference during the most turbulent time in the world’s history?
1.1 The Robots of Life by Roland Moore Settling into life back on Kaldor, Liv investigates a medical centre where the patients are dying.
1.2 The Sentient by Robert Whitelock Vissey is a young child - the sort of perfect young girl any parents would want to adopt. She is also artificial, and she sees the world in a very different way to humans.
1.3 Love Me Not by John Dorney A widower goes to extreme lengths to keep the memories of his dead wife alive.

I believe that these are probably gonna be set sometime before the other Kaldor series.
Considering Nick Briggs said that Robophobia was supposed to be set months after Robots of Death, whereas the Magic Bullet Series is 10 years later. I can’t remember how long since Robophobia is supposed to have passed by Escape from Kaldor though.
Blorp. Not at all a fan of the emerging trend toward box sets that are only three episodes long, but I am a huge fan of both Nicola Walker and John Dorney’s work. Will add these o my preorder list once I can free up a little cash.
And I am glad that Big Finish is picking up on that gap they obviously left with this in mind.
It is purely the timing of this announcement that surprising to me.
Why though? It doesn't mean Liverpool can't go beyond Ravenous 4.
It is only my opinion, but as I said before I cannot imagine Liv being in two ongoing series for Big Finish being released over the same period of time. I know they have/are doing it with Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor, but I do not expect them to be doing it with Nicola Walker as Liv Chenka.
Liv is the reason I bought Doom Coalition and Ravenous, as Eight LIVes or dies on the companion he is given, for me at least. And I do think Liv is likely leaving after Ravenous, but her own series is something I much prefer as she is much more interesting on her own than with the Doctor. And I honestly like the three-story boxset model, as it just seems to be a tighter way of doing things.
While I am massively behind in the adventures of the Eighth Doctor that this won't be on my radar for a while yet (I haven't even picked up Dark Eyes 1 - 4.. 😳), I am intrigued enough by what I've read to add The Robots to my ever growing list of wants.
Top of that list is of course a payrise or win on the lottery to pay for that ever growing list of wants... 😏
