Part One: Daughter of Albion 

Princess Victoria Arkwright never knew her father, a man whose shadow she has lived under since he saved the multiverse from the cataclysmic forces of the Disruptors. 23 years after she and her brother Henry were born in the flames of war, Victoria seeks answers, but the truth lies deep in shadow. As rebellion gains momentum against Queen Anne’s totalitarian rule, dark forces grow at the heart of the British Empire, forces that threaten all realities. The multiverse needs Luther Arkwright to save it once more, but Luther Arkwright is dead… 

Part Two: Cataclysm 

Victoria Arkwright is drawn towards destiny as she unravels the dangerous secrets that have remained hidden since her brother’s brutal murder. Prophecy says that reality will cease on her 23rd birthday – Victory Day – but with the help of Harry Fairfax and Rose Wylde, Victoria is determined to prevent the new apocalypse. To unlock her true self, Victoria must embrace painful realities and the enormity of the multiverse; only then will she discover the legacy of Luther Arkwright. 

 
Mark Wright, who adapted the graphic novel for audio, said: “The original adaptation of The Adventures of Luther Arkwright sits high on my list of cherished Big Finish projects – Bryan Talbot’s acclaimed graphic novel, meeting the legendary and much-missed Paul Darrow for the first time, and witnessing David Tennant’s star-making talent in front of the microphone.  
 
“We’d always intended to adapt Bryan’s incredible sequel, and now, 18 years later, the stars and parallels have aligned to plunge us into the Heart of Empire. I’m thrilled that David has returned to the role of another dimension-hopping hero and to hear Siri O’NealJez FielderIndia Fisher and Robert Jezek reprise their roles has been a joy.”
