Big Finish Productions has announced that three new adventures in time and space will be coming this November in Doctor Who – The Ninth Doctor Adventures: Lost Warriors. This next box of full cast audio dramas will see the Ninth Doctor head to a 1930’s country mansion, the Scottish Highlands and an iconic movie set.
There’s three new audio adventures for Christopher Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor and listeners will follow him and the TARDIS on a journey where they will meet many strangers, some of which are friends, others enemies and some former warriors with their own personal reasons to remain hidden.
The three new stories in this upcoming volume include:
- The Hunting Season by James Kettle.
- The Curse of Lady Macbeth by Lizzie Hopley.
- Monsters In Metropolis by John Dorney.
The upcoming volume of Doctor Who – The Ninth Doctor Adventures features the acting talent of Christopher Eccleston, BAFTA nominee Alex Jennings (The Crown, A Very English Scandal) as the master of Dewberry Hall Lord Hawthorn, Annette Badland (Doctor Who, Ted Lasso) as Mrs Goose and Don Gilét (Doctor Who, EastEnders) as the butler Streatham, while The Curse of Lady Macbeth stars Neve McIntosh (The Paternoster Gang, Traces) as ruler Gruach, and the closing episode features Nicholas Briggs as the Cybermen.
Christopher Eccleston said: “It’s just magical to me, to be playing a hero again. There’s a great positivity and optimism to the Doctor, and what Doctor Who can do with these audios by reaching out to those young hearts and minds, to those young imaginations – it’s beautiful.”
Director Barnaby Edwards added: “It was a huge treat to be reunited with Christopher Eccleston, 16 years after we last worked together on Doctor Who. He had such energy and enthusiasm and inventive brilliance then – and he’s still got it now. These three stories see the Ninth Doctor, himself a lone veteran of a great war, encountering three other ‘lost warriors’. Each adventure works as an entirely separate entity with great plots, fun characters and surprising villains, but together they present a fascinating dialogue on how conflict can change a person. And that’s especially true of the Doctor himself.”
Doctor Who – The Ninth Doctor Adventures: Lost Warriors arrives this November.
