Due for release in April 2018, actor and impressionist Jake Dudman will be taking the reins and narrating tales from the Tenth Doctor’s time. Allons-y!
Jacob Dudman, known online for his impressions from the world of Doctor Who amongst others, will be breathing life into the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors in Big Finish’s Tenth Doctor and Eleventh Doctor Chronicles. You can see Jake’s take on Matt Smith’s Doctor (with Jon Culshaw playing the Curator) below:
The first of the Chronicles will be released in April 2018, with Jake narrating adventures from David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor era.
Co-starring with him is Jacqueline King, reprising her role as Sylvia Noble, and he will also be reunited with partner in crime, Jon Culshaw.
The first two adventures directed by Helen Goldwyn, are:
Back Track by Matthew J Elliott
Wild Pastures by James Goss
Further details on other adventures coming soon.
We chatted to producer Scott Handcock about these exciting upcoming tales: “As the Short Trips range has demonstrated, there’s plenty of room for narrated stories alongside the full-cast releases, so we’re thrilled to be tackling the Tenth Doctor era in the latest set of Chronicles releases – and with a new narrator in the form of Jacob Dudman!
“Fans may already know Jake from his impressions of the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors, which of course he’s great at, but we also really put him through his paces in the audition. Audiobooks generally require a very specific set of skills – far more than just capturing a single voice – and we’re thrilled to say Jake’s performance blew us away. He developed an instant rapport with director Helen Goldwyn, and executive producer and Ninth Doctor narrator Nicholas Briggs felt more than confident in handing over the reins for the next few sets! We’ve got a really exciting variety of tales in store for both the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear Jake and Helen’s work.”
