As many of you Doctor Who fans fell for that click-bait earlier on Monday, we have to say that David Tennant is returning to the role of The Doctor but only for the audio adventure. As many Who fans know, many of the old Doctors and companions have returned to the roles for new audio adventures, recently John Hurt was announced to be playing the War Doctor in an upcoming adventure. Now, the news is that Tennant and Catherine Tate will be returning together for another round of adventures.
Big Finish will be releasing three new Doctor Who audio adventures featuring the two. It begins with Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Technophobia by Matt Fitton, which is set in a London slightly in the future, where mankind is gradually losing its ability to use everyday technology. Could there be an evil force at work?
That will be followed by Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures: 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.
And the grand finale will be Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Death and the Queen by James Goss, in which 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 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.”
“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.’
Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures will be released in May and all three stories are also available in the Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 1 – Limited Edition set, limited to 5,000 copies and available exclusively from bigfinish.com.
