For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Christopher Eccleston is joined by a star-studded ensemble cast in a brand-new box set of full-cast Ninth Doctor audio dramas, due for release in February 2023 from Big Finish Productions.
Alien threats come in many forms - and many different hues. A charity shop where customers vanish, a 1920s gentleman’s club besieged by giant plants, and a distant colony planet where death hides in darkness - wherever they manifest, the Doctor is on hand to fight every shade of fear...
Doctor Who - The Ninth Doctor Adventures: Shades of Fear is now available to pre-order for just £24.99 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) or £19.99 (download only) here.

Frank Skinner said: “I loved the Ninth Doctor [on TV]. Chris was brilliant with an amazing energy. I was very sad when he left but I’m glad we’ve got that one series as it’s an absolute corker. Without him, I don’t think we’d have everything we’ve had since. It’s pretty exciting viewing Chris as the Ninth Doctor close-up.
“I listen to Big Finish regularly and it’s great because it can take it anywhere. No one ever listens to the same recording - we’ve all got our own versions [in our imagination] and that makes it very intimate. I’m a big fan of audio.”
Director Helen Goldwyn added: “When Lizzie Hopley said she’d written the role of Pete specifically with Frank Skinner in mind, I thought we had to try! As Frank is a Doctor Who fan he said yes pretty much immediately.
“As soon as Chris and Frank met, they hit it off and you could see the mutual respect and admiration which was lovely to be around. Frank did admit to his Doctor Who passion. Chris is such a humble guy and he understands the love and affection people have for it. It was really good fun, with lots of anecdotes being told.”
Also joining Christopher Eccleston and Frank Skinner in this exciting box set are Dave Hearn (The Goes Wrong Show), Susan Penhaligon (A Fine Romance, Doctor Who), Laura Rollins (Doctors), actor and impressionist Luke Kempner, Clive Hayward (Anything Goes), Harki Bhambra (Our Girl, Coronation Street), and Moyo Akandé (The Cry).
