For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
The Tenth Doctor reunites with his dear old friends from past incarnations in a brand-new box set of mind-bending full-cast audio adventures, released today by Big Finish Productions.
In a dark, mythical tale, the Doctor finds Leela preparing to battle kidnapping giants! Then, Nyssa meets K9 for the first time in a fantastical film studio and finally, a modern-day Ace investigates a worryingly advanced app...
The Tenth Doctor revisits his 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 three rollicking adventures in this box set are as follows:
Splinters by John Dorney
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.
The Stuntman by Lizzie Hopley
The Doctor and K9 enter a virtual world of a movie stuntman to help Nyssa escape a Time War criminal’s scheme.
Quantum of Axos by Roy Gill
Ace investigates a new tech company which seems too good to be true, and meets the Doctor and K9 as Axos escapes its trap.
David Tennant said: “It’s great fun to revisit eras of the Doctor’s past that I wasn’t involved in the first time around. As someone who grew up watching Doctor Who and then became involved in it himself, it’s very much an exercise in nostalgia. It’s a really exciting journey to go on — to be the Doctor with people who I watched on TV!”
John Leeson added: “One of the thrills for me is getting to work with David again! The last time was of the days with Sarah Jane Smith back in Doctor Who. A lot of that was done in post-production but the way this has been recorded is absolutely wonderful. We’re all in each other’s ears.”
Sarah Sutton added: “It’s not always a given that these companions are going to have chemistry with other Doctors but because the Tenth Doctor has a touch more empathy, it’s easier to connect with him. He really respects and admires Nyssa which really comes through in this script. He thinks she’s clever, wise, and principled.
“I’ve always been ever so slightly jealous of the companions who had a relationship with K9. It’s been lovely to have the scenes with John Leeson. It was really special and I’m really pleased to have that opportunity and now I can say I’ve worked with K9!”
Sophie Aldred said: “It’s fantastic to have the chance to see how Ace, K9, and the Tenth Doctor go together. The companion-Doctor relationship is so touching.”
