Doctor Who: First Listen To Big Finish's The Siege Of Big Ben
Are you still wondering what happened to the Metacrisis Doctor and the Tyler family when the Doctor left them on Bad Wolf Bay in the alternative dimension? The fate of the Doctor's clone and his beloved Rose remains one of the unanswered questions of Doctor Who lore, piquing the interest of fans worldwide and inspiring a wealth of fanfic.
But, wonder no more! Thanks to those excellent folks at Big Finish, you can get a little peek at what's been going on over in that other universe through new installments in their monthly download series Short Trips. Two brand new stories read by Camille Coduri (Jackie Tyler), continuing the adventures of the Metacrisis Doctor as played onscreen by David Tennant, are coming soon. The first The Siege Of Big Ben is due this month and you can get a sneaky listen to the first fifteen minutes of The Siege Of Big Ben read by Camille Coduri on the latest Big Finish podcast here.
