Christopher Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor will encounter some old friends and foes in the forthcoming volumes of Big Finish’s Doctor Who – The Ninth Doctor Adventures
Following the exclusive premiere of the first trailer for The Ninth Doctor Adventures last week, Big Finish have revealed that future volumes of the series will tick some outstanding Doctor Who boxes for Christopher Eccleston’s incarnation. Including the Ninth Doctor finally facing off against one of his greatest enemies. It’s the terrifying Cybermen, as voiced by Nicholas Briggs! The final episode of volume three, due for release in November, features one of the menacing Mondasian monsters. But more than that, this Cyberman has invaded the set of Fritz Lang’s celebrated 1927 motion picture, Metropolis.
Writer John Dorney spoke about his excitement in finally bringing together an encounter we never got on television. “I know everyone was very keen for the Ninth Doctor to have an encounter with the Cybermen, and as they were the only Doctor and monster I hadn’t written for at Big Finish, I was very keen to be the one to write it! It was a real honour getting to script their meeting… particularly as it gave me the chance to dive into my love for the movies and write a bit of a celebrity historical.”
