Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures will be released in May 2016 and comprises three thrilling full cast audio adventures:
Written by Matt Fitton,
The opening adventure is set in London slightly in the future, where mankind is gradually losing its ability to use everyday technology. Could there be an evil force at work?
Written by Jenny T Colgan
The Doctor and Donna arrive on Calibris - ‘An entirely mechanical planet. Catch, hitch, fuel, fix, buy, pretty much any kind of transportation in existence.’ It’s also a world full of scoundrels, where a deadly black market has opened up in a device known only as the Time Reaver.
Death and the Queen
Written by James Goss,
Donna is swept along in a fairytale romance and meets the man of her dreams in the beautiful land of Goritania. What can possibly go wrong? And why has the Doctor never heard of Goritania?

The new adventures are a collaboration between Big Finish Productions and BBC Worldwide. Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures is produced by David Richardson, script edited by Matt Fitton and James Goss and directed by Nicholas Briggs. The series cast also includes Dan Starkey, Alice Krige and Rory Keenan.
David is no stranger to Big Finish, having recorded a number of stories with them in his pre-Doctor Who years, including The Adventures Of Luther Arkwright, UNIT: Sympathy For The Devil and Sixth Doctor Adventure Medicinal Purposes. However, this is the first time he has played the Doctor himself for the company.
Fellow executive producer Nicholas Briggs adds, "I’ve enjoyed working with all the Doctors on TV, but David is the only one I’d known before he became the Doctor. I’d worked with him on our Dalek Empire series for Big Finish and had such fun. So along with the excitement of directing new Tenth Doctor adventures, I’m so happy to be working with an old chum again."
David Tennant portrayed the Doctor on screen from 2005 until 1 January 2010, returning to play alongside Matt Smith and John Hurt in the 50th Anniversary special The Day of the Doctor in 2013. Catherine Tate made her debut as Donna in December 2006, and after a series and two festive specials she made her last appearance alongside David on 1 January 2010. Their on-screen partnership is generally regarded as one of the great high-points of the enduring science fiction phenomenon.
