Doctor Who: Happy Birthday David Tennant!

15 April 2016

The one and only Tenth Doctor is celebrating his birthday next week! And ahead of his return next month in Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures, you can save on some of David's classic Big Finish appearances in celebration!

Happy Birthday David Tennant!

One of the most respected actors working today, we've been proud to have David as part of the Big Finish family since our earliest years – beginning with his villainous turn as Feldwebel Kurtz in Doctor Who: Colditz. Since then, he's gone on to star in such memorable roles as Detective Alec Hardy in Broadchurch, Kilgrave in Marvel's Jessica Jones, Hamlet in a critically-acclaimed stage production and, of course, the Tenth Doctor in the New Series of Doctor Who!

Next month, David returns to both Big Finish and Doctor Who with his television co-star Catherine Tate for three new journeys in space and time. Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures is available to pre-order now, with three individual releases and a special Limited Edition set available. As a special preview, we're delighted to reveal the next instalment of our video interview with David and Catherine, which can be enjoyed below:

To celebrate David's birthday, this weekend we're offering listeners the chance to own some of his earlier Big Finish appearances at fantastic special offer prices. His debut Big Finish role in Doctor Who: Colditz is available at the permanatly reduced download price of just £2.99 – and that's just the start!

David starred opposite Colin Baker in Doctor Who: Medicinal Purposes available on both CD and download for just £5 this weekend. He then switched universes to play Colonel Brimmicombe-Wood against David Warner's Unbound Doctor in Doctor Who Unbound: Sympathy for the Devil; before switching again to appear as a Time Lord pursuing Arabella Weir's renegade incarnation in Doctor Who Unbound: Exile. Both of these alternative-reality treats can be enjoyed for the reduced price of £2.99 to download this weekend (with CDs available at the standard price of £5 each).

Back in the regular space-time continuum, David reprises Colonel Brimmicombe-Wood in UNIT: The Wasting, before defending the Universe from the Daleks in the six-part spectacular Dalek Empire 3. These seven titles have all had their downloads discounted to just £2.99 for this weekend, with the bundle of Dalek Empire 3 available for £20 on CD or £17.50 to download, with free UK postage. UNIT: Series 1 is also available together in a bundle – which as with the majority of Big Finish releases, includes a complimentary digital download with all CD orders, allowing you to enjoy the stories from the moment of purchase!

Finally, David brings Bryan Talbot's comic book hero to life in The Adventures of Luther Arkwright, a three-disc adaptation of the cult graphic novel. Featuring steampunk-powered combat and inter-dimensional political intrigue, this epic tale of high-adventure is available for just £7.50 this weekend.

Please note: CD orders for The Adventures of Luther Arkwright do not include a digital copy.

These offers must end noon Tuesday April 19th (UK time) – so order today! And don't forget to place your order for David's next appearance in Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures – click for more details!
