When Big Finish Productions announced last year that Christopher Eccleston was breaking his self-imposed
Even though 16 years have come and gone since Eccleston regenerated into David Tennant, he doesn’t sound like he’s aged a day. Good for a Time Lord, to be honest. There’s still the excitement, the swagger, the kind of dopey optimism hiding deep trauma that was present in 2005. We only had an all-too brief 13 episodes with the Ninth Doctor, but with Big Finish’s Ninth Doctor Adventures line, he’s basically going to double that.
Each volume will contain three episodes. The plan is for four volumes to come out between May and sometime early next year. So that’s 12 new Ninth Doctor stories. And I mean, come on! Volume 1 bears the overall title
The episode descriptions are as follows:
1.1 Sphere of Freedom
On the Sphere of Freedom, the Doctor is about to shut down an evil Immersive Games business empire. He’s assisted by a valiant galley chef called Nova. But his plan spectacularly fails… And who exactly is Audrey?
Nova is dislocated in time while the Time Eddies are out of control. Meanwhile, the Doctor is about to face the end of the universe. Or is that just the Battle of Waterloo?
1.3 Food Fight
The TARDIS is starting to get a little crowded! Audrey finds herself haunted by a ghostly Doctor.
It’s honestly just so lovely to hear the Ninth Doctor again, and utter his famous catchphrase. Eccleston is a lot of people’s first Doctor (myself included). We’re really just over the moon to get to hear more of him in a role we never expected him to play again.
Ninth Doctor Adventures Volume 1 will drop in May.
