New Tenth Doctor and Rose audio dramas out today

Three brand new audio dramas starring David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor and Billie Piper as companion Rose Tyler have been released today by Big Finish.

The Tenth Doctor Adventures - Volume Two - announced earlier this year - comes four years to the day since the pair appeared together in the show's 50th anniversary special The Day of the Doctor, which saw Tennant return as the Tenth Doctor while Piper took on the role of sentient Gallifreyan weapon the Moment.

The new release, which marks Piper's Big Finish debut, sees her reprise her role as Rose opposite Tennant's Doctor for the first time since their last on-screen appearance together in the Series 4 finale Journey's End almost ten years ago.



The three hour-long full cast audio adventures featuring in this latest release are:

2.1 Infamy of the Zaross by John Dorney
When Jackie Tyler takes an away day to visit her old friend Marge in Norwich, she finds her holiday immediately interrupted in the worst way possible - an alien invasion! The infamous Zaross have come to take over the Earth.

Or have they? After Jackie calls in the Doctor and Rose to deal with the menace, it soon becomes clear that this is a very unusual invasion indeed.

The Doctor is about to uncover one of the most heinous crimes in the history of the galaxy. And if he can't stop it an awful lot of people are going to die.
2.2 The Sword of the Chevalier by Guy Adams
1791 and the Doctor and Rose get to meet one of the most enigmatic, thrilling and important people in history: The Chevalier d’Eon. She used to be known as a spy, but then she used to be known as a lot of things.

If there’s one thing the Doctor knows it’s that identity is what you make it. Choose a life for yourself and be proud.

Mind you, if the Consortium of the Obsidian Asp get their way, all lives may soon be over...
2.3 Cold Vengeance by Matt Fitton
The TARDIS arrives on Coldstar, a vast freezer satellite, packed with supplies to feed a colony world.

But there are cracks in the ice, and something scuttles under the floors. Soon, Rose and the Doctor encounter robots, space pirates and... refuse collectors.

As Coldstar's tunnels begin to melt, an even greater threat stirs within. An old enemy of the Doctor puts a plan into action - a plan for retribution.

Nobody's vengeance is colder than an Ice Warrior's.
All three adventures are available to purchase individually from Big Finish on CD and digital download, and can also be bought together as a bundle on the same formats here.

The Tenth Doctor Adventures - Volume Two is also available from today as a special limited-edition boxset.

Limited to just 5,000 copies, the lavish book-sized box set includes exclusive artwork, photography, articles, a one-hour documentary featuring interviews with the stars and production team, and a bonus documentary examining the worlds of Doctor Who at Big Finish.

The Tenth Doctor Adventures - Volume Two standard release is available from today exclusively from Big Finish, before going on general sale on February 28th 2018. The limited edition boxset is only available through Big Finish.
