The Tenth Doctor And Rose Reunite For Big Finish Audios

Big Finish have announced that David Tennant and Billie Piper are reprising their roles as the Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler in three brand new Doctor Who audio dramas.

The new dramas will be Piper's eagerly awaited Big Finish debut, as she returns to play the companion who she played on screen from 2005 to 2006, with a few guest appearances in 2008. David Tennant has previously appeared on audio for Big Finish in a series of dramas with Catherine Tate  in 2016.

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures – Volume 2 is comprised of three hour-long full cast audio adventures and will be released in November 2017. These adventures include:

Attack of the Zaross by John Dorney
Camille Coduri guest stars as Rose's mother, Jackie Tyler, in a story where an alien invasion of Earth isn’t quite what it appears to be

Sword of the Chevalier by Guy Adams
The Doctor and Rose arrive in Slough in 1791 and encounter Chevalier D’Eon, an enigmatic ex-spy who has lived his life as a woman. Together they must fend off alien slavers, who have come to Earth to abduct valuable humans.

Cold Vengeance by Matt Fitton
The TARDIS arrives on Coldstar, a vast frozen food asteroid in deep space. But there is something sinister defrosting in the network of storage units… the Doctor’s old enemies the Ice Warriors!


Executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery said:
Getting David and Billie back together was definitely on my bucket list – two wonderful actors who created an era of Doctor Who which is so fondly remembered and brought a different aspect of the relationship between the Doctor and his companion to the fore – love, both platonic and unrequited. It’s great to have the Tenth Doctor and Rose back again!
Nicholas Briggs, who voices Ice Lord Hasskor and Warrior Slaan in Cold Vengence, added:
It was such a special time for me, working with Billie and David on the TV show, and it is such an honour to revisit it with them on audio.
David Richardson, producer of the set, said:
We were thrilled by the response to the first volume. David Tennant and Catherine Tate were on fantastic form, and it’s so exciting to reunite David with Billie Piper, playing the Doctor and Rose together again after nine years! Their time in the series transformed Doctor Who into a prime-time and international hit, and we’ve worked very hard to live up to the incredible standards of Russell T Davies.
And if the return of Ten and Rose (plus Ice Warriors!) wasn't enough to whet your appetite, here's a special trailer:
