It’s time to get excited, because David Tennant and Catherine Tate are returning to Doctor Who – and we’ve got the very first clip of their new adventures.
The pair are reuniting as the Doctor and Donna – seven years after their on-screen partnership ended – in a trio of new Big Finish audio dramas which will see the Time Lord and his companion visit near-future London, discover an entirely mechanical planet and find fairytale romance, with a twist…
In this exclusive excerpt from the second of the new audio dramas, the Time Reaver, the duo seem to be having a bit of trouble with the TARDIS – not to mention Donna’s wardrobe.
Have a listen – it’s like we’ve gone back in time to 2008…
Having listened ourselves, we’ve got a few queries. Wench costumes, Planet of the Boys – what’s going on?
The one thing we do know is that whatever’s happening to the Doctor and Donna, they’re not headed to a planet of dancing boys – according to the episode synopsis, they end up somewhere quite different:
Calibris. The spaceport planet where anything goes. Where anyone who doesn’t want to be found can be lost, and where everything has its price. Where betentacled gangster Gully holds sway at the smugglers’ tavern, Vagabond’s Reach.
The alien Vacintians are trying to impose some order on the chaos. Soon the Doctor and Donna discover why. An illegal weapon is loose on the streets. A weapon that destroys lives… Slowly and agonisingly.
The Time Reaver.
Could the Time Reaver be what’s causing the trouble with the Tardis? Are the Doctor and Donna headed into a trap? And will Donna ever find an outfit that fits her? We’ll have to wait until May 2016 to find out…
