Peter Davison will star as the Fifth Doctor opposite his real-life daughter, Georgia Tennant (as the Doctor’s daughter, Jenny!) in the second part of Big Finish’s 60th anniversary event, Once and Future.
The Artist at the End of Time will be released in June 2023 after next month’s Past Lives starring the Fourth Doctor. It also features Colin Baker returning as the Curator (a retired incarnation of the Doctor originally played by Tom Baker in The Day of the Doctor)
Georgia Tennant said:
“I feel like I’m always working with Dad. It’s so nice to see a different side to him – he’s very impressive to watch. Also, I’ve known Colin since I was very small, so it was a little like being a kid back in the 1980s again. They haven’t changed and their rapport is pretty special. It was fun to try and find my space in that.”
Here’s the blurb:
Suffering the effects of degeneration, the Doctor heads towards the end of the universe in search of answers. Instead, he finds his daughter – Jenny – and an Artist whose works appear to mark the end of every world they touch.
The Doctor stabilises into his Fifth form to join forces with Jenny and the Curator to solve the mystery of the Final Gallery and the art it has collected.
Producer David Richardson said:
“James Goss is a master at painting on a broad, sweeping canvas while telling intimate stories that strike to the very heart of the characters. This is no exception and the characters here are none other than the Doctor (now reverted to his Fifth incarnation), his daughter Jenny and the enigmatic Curator. It’s an intoxicating mix to mark the second instalment of this 60th anniversary celebration.”
