After two successful volumes, in which David Tennant reprised his role of the Tenth Doctor alongside Catherine Tate and Billie Piper, Big Finish announced that a third set of audio adventures is in production and is set to come out in spring next year.
Not only will David Tennant and Catherine Tate return, but also two beloved characters we haven‘t heard of in a long time. After 11 years, to be precise, Jacqueline King and Bernard Cribbins will be returning as Sylvia Noble, Donna‘s mother, and Wilfred Mott, Donna’s grandfather. This time they will all be swept up in an adventure with the Doctor. Facing Judoon in an endangered underwater city, exploring historical London where dangerous creatures lurk in the deadly fog, or in a spooky journey in the world of reality television.
Read the official synopsis here:
3.1 No Place by James Goss
It’s Haunted Makeovers! The home improvement show with a spooky twist.
The Noble family are hoping to cast out a few spirits along with the old bathroom suite, as presenter Justin joins Donna, Wilf, Sylvia and the Doctor for the latest edition of his reality TV series.
Of course, Justin knows that any supernatural phenomena can be faked. Ghosts can’t possibly be real.
3.2 One Mile Down by Jenny T Colgan
Donna and the Doctor take a holiday – in the beautiful underwater city of Vallarasee.
Things have changed since the Doctor last swam through it: Vallarasee is now enclosed inside an airdome. Judoon patrol historic sites, and instead of tourists wearing helmets to breathe, the native Fins are forced to adapt.
But leaks have begun to trickle into the dome, and the Doctor and Donna must convince the Judoon that disaster is imminent. Or else thousands will be trapped, as the waters rise…
3.3 The Creeping Death by Roy Gill
London, 1952, and a deadly smog envelops the capital. But something even more dangerous – and alien – is hiding within the mists.
When the Doctor and Donna get lost in the fog, they find a motley group of Londoners trying to make their way home.
Soon the stakes are raised, as death creeps along fume-choked streets, and not everyone will make it out alive….
Coming out in May 2019, the box set will feature three stories written by three award-winning authors: James Goss, who has written a notable amount of novels, audiobooks and audio dramas for Doctor Who, Jenny T Colgan, also experienced in writing for the show, and Roy Gill, author of several Big Finish audio dramas such as the Class audio adventures.
Jacqueline King, who will be playing Donna‘s mother again, told Big Finish delightfully, ”Doctor Who has been the gift that keeps on giving. I started, believing I was to appear in one Christmas episode, then was thrilled to appear in more. I recently returned to the role with Big Finish and it was like putting a cherished old sweater back on. That old sweater will have to be washed and conditioned ready for this episode with the A team back in full. Can’t believe my luck. I’m guessing it might actually feel a bit emotional.”
Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume Three is available to preorder now on the Big Finish website for £22 on download and £25 on CD. A deluxe five-disc collector’s edition – limited to 5.000 copies only and packed with interviews and insights behind the scenes – will be available for a pre-release priced £35, with the download version for £25.
