May 13th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Today’s the day, folks. Today is the day that the Ninth Doctor, Christopher Eccleston returns to the role that brought Doctor Who back with a bang in 2005.

It could be argued that it’s since been run into the ground, but in 2005 Doctor Who was the biggest news on the planet and, if you look at the excitement about Eccleston’s return over the last while, it’s hard to imagine that the TV series has got to the stage where people barley care anymore but audio adventures from Big Finish are where Doctor Who truly lives and breathes.

The Eccleston first adventure, Ravagers, is great by the way, I’m listening at the minute.

Anyway, check out the trailer and let me know if this excited you because, if you’re a Doctor Who fan, it really should have.

I love that reversal of the opening shot of earth from the first episode of Eccleston’s era.

Check it out and let me know your thoughts.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
