David Tennant and Catherine Tate Return to DOCTOR WHO!

PrintE-mail Written by Martin Unsworth

Big Finish, the leading audio drama producers, has announced the return of fan favourite David Tennant to the role of the Tenth Doctor in three new stories. Companion Donna Noble will also be back, as portrayed by Catherine Tate!

From the press release:

I still remember the sense of joy I had when I heard that David had been asked to play the Doctor,” says executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery. “We were all so pleased for him — as we knew how much Doctor Who meant to him. And now David comes full circle, back doing Doctor Who with Big Finish — except that this time he’s playing the Doctor! It’s the same but different — it’s wonderful to have him back!”

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures will be released in May 2016 and comprises three thrilling full cast audio adventures. The set opens with Technophobia by Matt Fitton, which is set in London slightly in the future, where mankind is gradually losing its ability to use  everyday technology. Could there be an evil force at work?

In Time Reaver, by Jenny T Colgan the Doctor and Donna arrive on Calibris - ‘An entirely mechanical planet. Catch, hitch, fuel, fix, buy, pretty much any kind of transportation in existence.’ It’s also a world full of scoundrels, where a deadly black market has opened up in a device known only as the Time Reaver.

Finally, in Death and the Queen by James Goss, Donna is swept along in a fairytale romance and meets the man of her dreams in the beautiful land of Goritania. What can possibly go wrong? And why has the Doctor never heard of Goritania?

“I’ve enjoyed working with all the Doctors on TV, but David is on the only one I’d known before he became the Doctor,” says executive producer Nicholas Briggs. “I’d worked with him on our Dalek Empire series for Big Finish and had such fun. So along with the excitement of directing new Tenth Doctor adventures, I’m so happy to be working with an old chum again.”

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures is produced by David Richardson, script edited by Matt Fitton and James Goss and directed by Nicholas Briggs. “This is one of those dream projects where I’ve spent months pinching myself. I’m covered in bruises,’ says producer David Richardson. ‘With two major international stars in place, and the legacy of this era of the TV show to live up to, we’ve worked our socks off to try and make some very special stories for this box set. Expect adventure, fun, scares… and some tears too.”
