A new Doctor Who Short Trips has just been released and it’s an adventure that takes us back in history as the Ninth Doctor makes a voyage on the Titanic… Doctor Who – Short Trips: Battle Scars by Selim Ulug is out now, on download exclusively from the Big Finish website.

Writer Selim Ulug, a previous winner of the Paul Spragg Memorial Short Trips Opportunity, told us more about this tale for the Ninth Doctor (set before he met Rose): “It’s a thrill to have the opportunity to write for Big Finish again. In Battle Scars we learn what happens when the Daniels family of Southampton encounter the Doctor. They’re booked to sail on the Titanic, but when you run into the Doctor, unexpected things are sure to happen.

In addition to answering the question of why the family stayed behind, I wanted to use this story to explore the impact of war on its participants. The Doctor, after all, was recently in the Time War. Other characters in the story fought in the second Boer War. They’re all looking for ways to move forward.

Come back to BlogtorWho.com at 12 noon BST for our review of Doctor Who: Battle Scars.
