We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.

This time-twisting audio adventure, read by Jacob Dudman (The Stranger), is the debut Big Finish story from writer Amy Veeres; a morality tale which explores the Time War, temporal paradoxes and the Doctor’s anguish. The setting – the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa – builds upon a sketch that alien conspiracist Clive showed Rose in the first episode of Doctor Who’s triumphant television revival in 2005. 
   
Doctor Who – Short Trips: Her Own Bootstraps is now available to download HERE for just £2.99!
 
Extracting a dangerous Time War weapon from an irresponsible scientist, the Doctor arrives on Krakatoa in 1883 to destroy it. Problematically, the scientist is also in Krakatoa to steal the weapon. This is where she found it before the Doctor stole it from her. Trapped in a paradox, the Doctor must overcome a future he cannot change. 
 
A future that has already happened. 


 Doctor Who – Short Trips are short stories, many written by some of Doctor Who’s most popular authors from the worlds of television, print, comics and audio, and read by a host of favourite Big Finish actors.  
 
Writer Amy Veeres said: “It was an honour to write for the Ninth Doctor. No way did I expect Big Finish to give him to a newbie like me. Her Own Bootstraps was a blast to write!” 
 
Producer Alfie Shaw added: “Like Battle Scars before it, Her Own Bootstraps is inspired by the evidence about the Doctor that Clive presents to Rose in Rose. In a similar way to Battle Scars, I wanted the evidence Clive has to be a springboard to a different story, rather than a story that exists to explain the drawing.  
  
Her Own Bootstraps explores how people change across their lifetime. With the Ninth Doctor reverting back to the life he had before the Time War, it felt like a theme that was perfect to explore with this particular incarnation!”  
 
Actor Jacob Dudman said: “It was a pleasure to lend my voice to my favourite Doctor. The script deals with time and the Doctor's grief in a fascinating way and I think it's a mighty addition to the Short Trips range.”
