David Tennant and Tom Baker team-up for new Doctor Who Big Finish adventure!

June 1st, 2020 by Marc Comments

I’ll not lie, this is one of my dream Doctor Who team-ups as David Tennant and Tom Baker’s incarnations of the iconic time-traveller come together in a new Big Finish audio adventure.

And the best part is it’s only the beginning.

The Fourth and Tenth Doctors will unite to battle the Daleks in what’s being called “the first of an explosive new full-cast audio drama series” from Big Finish.

The first volume of Doctor Who: Out of Time is due for release in August 2020, with future releases pairing up different Doctors! Oh, yes!

Writer Matt Fitton said: “Of course it was hugely exciting – with a certain amount of pressure too – to bring together two of the most iconic Doctors, cemented in the public imagination from new and classic TV eras of Doctor Who. I thought putting them up against the Daleks – the Doctor’s most persistent enemy – would bring out all the ways in which they are at once the same Time Lord – and also very different versions too.

 “We find them both at particular points in their lives. The Tenth Doctor is avoiding his destiny; and the Fourth Doctor is wandering alone, missing a friend – but even he may be shocked at what his future holds…”

Honestly, I cannot wait to get this in my ears!

The Cathedral of Contemplation is an enigma, existing outside time. It turns through history, opening its doors across the universe to offer solace to those in need.

Occasionally, the Doctor drops in – when he’s avoiding his destiny, it’s an ideal place to get some perspective. Only, he’s already there several lives earlier, so when dimension barriers break down, his past and present collide.

And when the Daleks invade and commandeer the Cathedral, two Doctors must unite to stop them – or face extermination twice over!

Starring: David Tennant (The Doctor), Tom Baker (The Doctor) and Nicholas Briggs (The Daleks)

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….
