For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.

As previously announced, Stephen Noonan makes his debut as the Doctor in two exciting stories, The Outlaws (a four-part adventure) and The Miniaturist (a two-part adventure), with Lauren Cornelius as plucky companion Dodo Chaplet.  

The new TARDIS team are joined by Glynis Barber as the indomitable Sheriff Nicholaa de la Haye, Doctor Who legend Annette Badland as the titular Miniaturist, and Paul Copley as a stoic security guard. Plus, Rufus Hound returns as the time-meddling Monk, once again causing trouble for his fellow Time Lord in English history.  

Doctor Who — The First Doctor AdventuresThe Outlaws is now available to pre-order on collector’s edition CD (+ download at £19.99) or digital (download only, for just £16.99), exclusively here

After leaving Steven Taylor on the planet of the Savages, a new era of adventures begins for the First Doctor and Dodo Chaplet. From swashbuckling adventure in the 13th century to unsettling happenings in the depths of a 21st-century mine, the Doctor and Dodo experience new dimensions and meet an old adversary… 

The two thrilling tales in this exclusive box set are as follows: 

The Outlaws by Lizbeth Myles

Landing in 13th-century Lincoln, the Doctor and Dodo are soon caught up in the battle between Sheriff Nicholaa de la Haye and outlaw gangs in the nearby forest. King John requires funds for his conflict with France, and Nicholaa is determined to provide it, whatever the efforts of William of Berkshire and his gang of wolves’ heads…  

After taking refuge in Lincoln Castle, the Doctor and Dodo are separated. The Doctor is detained at the pleasure of the Sheriff, while Dodo indulges her adventurous spirit and plays forest outlaw with William’s gang.  

But William is not acting alone. The outlaws’ true leader knows the Doctor and has a plan for revenge. A man with a passion for meddling. A man who wears a monk’s habit…  

The Miniaturist by Lizzie Hopley 

Coulton Salt Mine: a rare environment for geological exploration on the North Yorkshire coast. The Doctor is fascinated by the experiments of Professor Medra on the Zechstein seabed, but Dodo is distracted. Didn’t her family settle in this part of Yorkshire?

As the Doctor delves deeper into the work of Professor Medra, Dodo is helped by security guard Mick Huff, who is concerned about the strange happenings in recent weeks. Who are the children that keep appearing around the mine workings? Why are local landmarks vanishing? And how can the bedrock of a geological ‘quiet place’ be screaming? 

The cast is completed by Benedict BriggsCarly DayBarnaby EdwardsChristian EdwardsCaroline Hrycek-RobinsonYasmin Mwanza and Sam Stafford

Lauren Cornelius said: “Recording on The Outlaws has been so much fun. Although there are dramatic and sad moments, the writer has so cleverly infused a lot of humour into it.   

“We get to see Dodo’s cheeky side a lot more and how brazen she is. She gets herself into a bit of trouble and has to wriggle herself out of some tricky situations. 

“It’s daunting taking on the role of a companion, and obviously for Stephen [taking on the role of the Doctor], but we’re really enjoying building Dodo’s and the Doctor’s relationship and seeing it grow.” 

Glynis Barber added: “Stephen is doing such an amazing job. I felt like I had to rise to his performance because it’s quite dramatic. The scenes between our characters are great fun. They go from fighting to being charmed by each other.” 

Rufus Hound said: “The joy of playing the Monk is that he’s a creature of absolute self-service so whenever I approach the script, I’m always wondering, ‘what’s in this for him?’ What’s odd in this story is that he’s essentially become Robin Hood. But when the Doctor turns up, everything becomes infinitely more complicated.” 

Annette Badland said: “The Miniaturist is a lonely soul and looking to see how the world works. She is the baddie but she’s also someone seeking out a better way of being. 

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Stephen and Lauren. He is excellent as the First Doctor. It’s an onerous task but he’s stepped right up to the plate.”
