Jackie Tyler returns in new Doctor Who audios

Big Finish has announced that actress Camille Coduri will be returning to Doctor Who as Jackie Tyler for two new audio stories.

Out in 2018, the two new additions to Big Finish's Short Trips range will see Jackie - mother of Ninth/Tenth Doctor companion Rose - encounter the Meta-Crisis Doctor, created as a result of the Tenth Doctor's aborted regeneration in 2008's Journey's End.

Producer Ian Atkins says:
“The Short Trips range always offers a nice chance to nip about and look at eras and people it’s harder to visit with other ranges. As soon as I’d heard Camille was happy to return to the role with Big Finish, I started talking to Joe Lidster about whether we could visit Pete’s World and see how things are going after Journey’s End. We got permission from Russell T Davies, and then Joe’s imagination took flight – as indeed do the Doctor and Jackie at one point – and came up with two exciting, funny and sad tales which Camille just knocked out of the park."
Written by Joseph Lidster, the upcoming new Short Trips adventures are:

The Siege Of Big Ben
Out in March 2018

Jackie Tyler has everything she's ever wanted: a loving husband, two children, and a vital role in the Earth Defence organisation headquartered in Big Ben. But now that the world is out of the shadow of the Cybus organisation, others have spotted an opportunity. A terrible, far-reaching plan is underway, and only Jackie and the new scientific adviser stand in the way.

But the Doctor isn't the man he was...

Out in May 2018

Jackie Tyler's lost a close friend, and this new Doctor is only a half-hearted replacement for him.

But as she tries to put the events of Big Ben behind her and take a well-earned break, others have spotted an opportunity. A well-intentioned, far-reaching plan is underway. But Jackie Tyler isn't the woman she was...

Both The Siege of Big Ben and Flight Into Hull! are available to pre-order now at £2.99 each on digital download ahead of their release next year.
