The Eleventh Doctor will be back next September for a second volume of The Eleventh Doctor Chronicles, produced as a full-cast drama, with cinematic sound design and complete musical score.
It’s the first time Big Finish’s Doctor Chronicles range will be treated as full-cast dramas.
Jacob Dudman takes on the role of the eleventh incarnation, as originally played by Matt Smith, alongside Jo Woodcock (Tess of the D’Urbervilles, Land Girls, All The Small Things), Nicholas Asbury (Chewing Gum, Innocent, Alma’s Not Normal), Jeany Spark (Man Down, Wallander, Collateral), Paul Panting (The Octonauts, Chuggington, Bob the Builder), and more.
Together, they’ll face zombies on a space station, populist preachers on a distant planet, and alien lifeforms who live down the plughole.
The four forthcoming adventures are as follows:
The Evolving Dead by Doris V Sutherland
The dead stalk the corridors of research station Romeo. For a technician (dead) and her ex-boyfriend (also dead), the Doctor’s their only chance to escape. For the rest of the crew, he’s their only chance to feed.
The Day Before They Came by Daniel Blythe
In the shabby seaside town of Bayview, Kayla Worthington is sitting on the beach waiting for an alien invasion. Her patience is rewarded when an alien arrives, although he doesn’t seem to be invading. He’s called the Doctor, and he wants to buy her a cup of tea.
The Melting Pot by Christopher Cooper
Arriving on Piir to sample the local cuisine, the Doctor finds a society wildly different from the one he remembers. With violence brewing on the streets, the Doctor will have to get to the bottom of what has gone wrong on Piir, before the world tears itself apart.
A Tragical History by Tessa North
To most of the inmates in Hythe Prison, life is miserable. However, some are living out their idealised lives within its walls. Amongst the dank conditions, the Doctor is about to uncover the key to everything he could ever desire.
Actor Jacob Dudman said:
“I’m thrilled to be stepping into the role of the Doctor for these full-cast audio adventures! As a fan, it’s really exciting that Big Finish has made this move into creating an Eleventh Doctor full-cast range, and I will give it my absolute all to do the character justice.”
The Eleventh Doctor Chronicles Volume 2 is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition CD box set (for £22.99) or digital download (for £19.99), from Big Finish. It’ll be released in September 2021.
