A trip down memory lane

It’s the nostalgic trip of a lifetime for the Tenth Doctor, as he teams up with the best friends of his previous selves in a brand-new box set from Big Finish Productions. Due for release in September 2022, David Tennant stars in three full-cast audio dramas recorded during the lockdown imposed by this year’s coronavirus pandemic.

The Tenth Doctor revisits classic companions 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 will never refuse.

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.

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.” 
Doctor Who – Tenth Doctor, Classic Companions 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 www.bigfinish.com
