Christopher Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor Faces Off Against the Sea Devils

Not only will the Ninth Doctor meet up again with his Eighth Doctor companions, Liv Chenka (Nicola Walker) and Tania Bell (Rebecca Root), in the next box set from Big Finish; he’ll also be facing off against the Sea Devils — only this time, they’re in space!

Plus, the Doctor meets the first woman awarded the Nobel Peace Prize!

The Ninth Doctor Adventures: Hidden Depths also stars Jeremy Swift (Downton Abbey), Jamie Parker (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), Sasha Behar (Coronation Street), Diana Quick (Scream of the Shalka), Nicholas Briggs (aka. voice of the Daleks and Cybermen), and Yasmin Mwanza (Spider-Man: Far from Home).

Here’s the synopsis:

Sometimes things lurk below the surface which only the Doctor can see… 

From a moon with poison seas, to a 19th century health spa, even somewhere as everyday as a furniture store on a Sunday afternoon – there are always hidden depths and unseen dangers to uncover!

And here are the stories in the set:

The Seas of Titan by Lizbeth Myles

Out on Saturn’s moon, Titan, an outpost all-but-forgotten by Earth struggles on against the odds.

As the Doctor joins explorers deep in the methane seas, they discover a hidden civilisation. But will the Sea Devils prove to be the colony’s salvation or its final destruction?

Lay Down Your Arms by Lisa McMullin

1864. Instead of relaxing at the Bad Homburg Spa, its visitors are fighting. And Bertha Kinzky, housekeeper to Alfred Nobel, is appalled. Perhaps the mysterious Herr Schmidt can help?

Soon, Bertha is contending with aliens, as well as her mother’s matchmaking, as she and the Doctor try to keep the peace.

Flatpack by John Dorney

Liv Chenka and Tania Bell are spending Sunday afternoon on that most traditional of couple activities. Furniture-shopping!

But just how long has London’s newest Flatpack store been open? Who is its mysterious manager? And is it even Sunday? Liv is about to run into a very old friend… 

Producer David Richardson said:

“Sea Devils in space! We know from the Eleventh Doctor’s era that the Silurians were a space faring species and now we find a colony of Sea Devils off-world, in the seas of Titan’s largest moon. What a glorious concept. And the Doctor is about to discover that human-Sea Devil relations are no less fractious away from Terra Firma…”

The Ninth Doctor Adventures: Hidden Depths is now available to pre-order for £24.99 (as a CD box set and download) or £19.99 (download only) from Big Finish.
