WATCH: Trailer arrives for The Ravagers, Christopher Eccleston’s long-awaited return to Doctor Who

April 2nd, 2021 by Marc Comments

We finally have a trailer for The Ravagers, the Big Finish Doctor Who adventure that would see Christopher Eccleston return as the ninth Doctor and yes, it’s fantastic!

Big Finish continue to be the place for the best Doctor Who content and having Eccleston return to the role for the  first time in almost 20 years is exciting news, indeed.

Speaking to Doctor Who Magazine, Eccleston had this to say about returning to the iconic role which he famously left after just one series in 2005:

“He’s very straight, isn’t he, the Doctor? He does not go in for manipulation. He does exactly what he says on the tin. And I think the most intelligent of human beings – or apes, as he often refers to them – always respond well to that, particularly females. He has a leaning towards the feminine, does the Doctor, which is illustrated in his companions down the years – their emotional intelligence.

“He’s a sucker for emotional intelligence, and forgiveness and humanity in humans. And I think that’s demonstrated within a lot of the relationships throughout the wonderful adventures we’re recording at the moment.”

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….
