The Doctor Chronicles series brings the era of New Series Doctor Who to life, utilising the talents of actor and impressionist, Jacob Dudman. From the era of David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor to Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor, we’ve marvelled at stories based on the works of Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat. But now we head to the Twelfth Doctor, originally played by Peter Capaldi.

There will be four stories in the first box set of The Twelfth Doctor Chronicles, set for release in February 2020. The first is entitled:

1.1. The Charge of the Night Brigade by David Llewellyn.

The Doctor finds himself in the Crimean War in 1855. There’s a strange sickness stalking the streets of Balaklava and it’s up to the Doctor and Mary Seacole to put a stop to it.

More details on the co-stars and other three adventures will be coming soon.

The new sets of New Series Doctor Who Chronicles are produced by Alfie Shaw. Alfie tells more; “I am huge fan of the Twelfth Doctor and a chance to create new adventures for him is utterly thrilling. I continue to marvel at the seemingly endless talent of Jacob Dudman and am overjoyed to get the chance to work with him on a boxset. We’ve got four fabulous stories from amazing writers and the Doctor will be joined by some familiar faces along the way. As to who they might be and what they’ll get up to, well, that’s for another day…”.

This isn’t the first time that Jacob Dudman has taken on the mantle of the Twelfth Doctor. His portrayal can also be heard in Short Trip: Dead Media available in September from bigfinish.com. Plus, the Eleventh Doctor and the Twelfth Doctor will be meeting in May 2020 in Short Trip: Regeneration Impossible.
