If you’re one of the Tenth Doctor’s many, many fans, you will have been pining for David Tennant’s version of Doctor Who—a Time Lord who was charming and clever and even admitted when he was scared—since his last appearance in 2010 (the 2013 episode “The Day of the Doctor” and flashback appearance in “The Girl Who Died” notwithstanding). Well, pine no more.
Both David Tennant and Catherine Tate, who played the brash, outspoken Donna, will be reprising their roles for three Big Finish audio dramas.
According to Vulture,
The specials will be released simultaneously in May 2016, and all feature different and unique plots: Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Technophobia is set in near-future London, when mankind starts to lose its ability to use technology; Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Time Reaver centers around a scoundrel-ridden mechanical planet; and Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Death and the Queen finds the lovestruck Noble in the unknown and mysterious land of Goritania.
In the video, below, we see Tennant and Tate, together again, talking about their admiration for each other. It’s an adorable little lovefest, which makes me look forward to the radio dramas even harder.
For those who haven’t heard Big Finish audio dramas, you’re missing out. The production company has produced some fabulous radio shows based on classic British science fiction, such as Blake’s 7, The Prisoner, Sapphire and Steel, 2000 AD, Torchwood and, of course, Doctor Who.
In fact, Big Finish continued the adventures of Doctor Who starting in 1999, near the end of the show’s 16-year hiatus.
