David Tennant and Billie Piper re-unite for 3 new ‘Doctor Who’ tales
Okay, so it might not be quite what you’re thinking — yes, David Tennant and Billie Piper are teaming up again for three new Doctor Who adventures.
The only catch? They’re not television episodes, they’re audio books.
On Monday, Big Finish — the audio drama company who have made a bunch of Torchwood and Doctor Who audio books before — announced the three new episodes, which will be released later this year.
You can listen to the trailer here:
The three new stories were described in a press release on the Big Finish website:
“The set opens with Infamy of the Zaross by John Dorney, in which an alien invasion of Earth isn’t quite what it appears to be – Camille Coduri guest stars as Jackie Tyler.
In the second adventure, Sword of the Chevalier by Guy Adams, the Doctor and Rose arrive in Slough in 1791 and encounter Chevalier D’Eon, an enigmatic ex-spy who has lived his life as a woman. Together they must fend off alien slavers, who have come to Earth to abduct valuable humans.
Finally, in Cold Vengeance by Matt Fitton, the TARDIS arrives on Coldstar, a vast frozen food asteroid in deep space. But there is something sinister defrosting in the network of storage units… the Doctor’s old enemies the Ice Warriors! Nicholas Briggs plays Ice Lord Hasskor and Warrior Slaan.”
Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures — Volume 2 (£8.99 – £10.99, $11.59 – $14.17 for individual episodes) is available for pre-order now.
