Four new adventures from the time of the Tenth Doctor told by impressionist and actor Jacob Dudman have been released today. The Tenth Doctor Chronicles features some familiar faces plus old enemies returning – and we can’t wait to hear them.
The Tenth Doctor Chronicles is out now. Allons-y!
The Taste of Death by Helen Goldwyn
The Doctor and Rose sample the high-life on resort planet MXQ1, run by the famous Bluestone brothers. It has everything: exotic beaches, luxury accommodation and extravagant dining. Something’s cooking in the kitchen, and it’s to die for…
Backtrack by Matthew J Elliott
When the TARDIS crashes in the vortex, Martha and the Doctor find themselves on board the time-ship Best Before, where the host offers temporal cruises at reasonable prices.
But time travellers must never cut corners. Dangerous forces have been unleashed, and Martha finds her medical skills put to the test as she deals with some lethal fall-out.
Time is running out, and the clock is ticking towards disaster!
Wild Pastures by James Goss
Strange things are happening at the Wild Pastures Rest Home. When the Doctor calls on the Nobles to investigate, he doesn’t expect Sylvia to be the one to step up. Soon, they’re in too deep, and the Doctor and Sylvia will need all their faculties to get out alive.
Last Chance by Guy Adams
Trying to spare a few creatures from extinction, the Doctor bumps into an old acquaintance on the African plains – Lady Christina de Souza. They are about to find themselves on the endangered list…
Along with Jacob Dudman, Jacqueline King reprises the character of Sylvia Noble in Wild Pastures, a witty tale by James Goss. And Michelle Ryan reprises the role of Lady Christina de Souza, (first seen in the 2009 Doctor Who television special, Planet of the Dead), in Last Chance by Guy Adams. And of course Michelle is returning for her own range of adventures in Doctor Who: The New Series – Lady Christina.
Director Helen Goldwyn tells us more about Jacob taking over the reigns of the Chronicles for the Tenth and the Eleventh volumes in this month’s Vortex magazine: “Jake’s most definitely an actor first and foremost – he just happens to be able to do other people’s voices as well.
“After they auditioned him, David Richardson and Nicholas Briggs were raving about what he could do, and I’ll admit I’m always sceptical about these things. I often wonder what makes an actor better than others – but then you meet someone who has that extra-special something. Jake definitely has that. He’s amazing!”
“The scripts are all so much fun and really rip-roaring. There’s a great mix of characters, and it’s one of my favourite things that I’ve done.” (You can read the full article in this month’s free Vortex).
