David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor is teaming up with four classic companions for a Big Finish boxset, due out in 2022!
The Tenth Doctor revisits K9, Leela, Ace, and Nyssa, long after their time-travelling adventures have finished. Because they all need help, and when people need help, the Doctor never refuses.
Not only that – one story will also include the return of Axos, from The Claws of Axos!
These three full-cast audio dramas were recorded during the lockdown imposed by this year’s coronavirus pandemic.
Here’s the synopsis for Doctor Who: Tenth Doctor, Classic Companions:
Splinter by John Dorney
The Doctor finds K9 floating in space, and sets off to clear up Time War fallout. First, they find Leela protecting a village from the Spriggan.
The Stuntman by Lizzie Hopley
The Doctor and K9 enter a virtual world of a movie stuntman to help Nyssa escape a Time War criminal’s scheme.
Quantum of Axos by Roy Gill
Ace investigates a new tech company which seems too good to be true, and meets the Doctor and K9 as Axos escapes its trap.
Producer David Richardson said:
“We took our cue from School Reunion for this set – what would it be like if the Tenth Doctor met some of his past companions, later in their lives. The result is three emotional, exciting stories that cut to the core of Doctor Who, about moving on but never forgetting and always embracing the past.”
David Tennant said:
“It’s been one of the great unexpected delights of being locked in one’s house for months on end, that this was something I was able to do. To be not only doing all these wonderful stories but to be appearing alongside people like Louise Jameson, John Leeson, Sarah Sutton, and Sophie Aldred, it’s been just such a treat. I’ve loved it. It’s always such a lovely thing to return to, this show.”
Tenth Doctor, Classic Companions is out in September 2022, and is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition CD (for just £24.99) or a digital download (for just £19.99) exclusively from the Big Finish website.
