Jacob Dudman returns as the Twelfth Doctor in a brand-new volume of full cast audio adventures from Big Finish

 

Due for release in February 2022, Timejacked! finds the Twelfth Doctor taken from his quiet life as a lecturer at St Luke’s and into adventure by a Time Agent on the run. Bhavnisha Parmar, who will be familiar to Doctor Who fans as Yaz’s younger sister, Sonya Khan, plays fugitive time traveller Keira Sandstrom. Meanwhile, as with the previous Twelfth Doctor Chronicles sets, man of many voices Jacob Dudman returns to play the Twelfth Doctor. But this time there’s a crucial difference compared to he earlier narrated stories…

Jacob Dudman explains, “I was delighted to create a voice for the Twelfth Doctor to suit full cast audio. It’s a character I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working on and have really grown into. I think fans will find this new ‘full cast’ format really lifts the box set to the next level!” The story itself, Dudman describes as “an epic three-hour story, told across three fantastic scripts – involving terrifying time agents, brand new planets, hatred of pears and wibbly-wobbly madness!”

Timejacked! is one of the first Big Finish productions since the pandemic to reunite cast and crew in the studio

Producer Alfie Shaw elaborates on Timejacked!’s setting between Series 9 and 10. “It’s an exciting new era for the Twelfth Doctor at Big Finish, as he’s unwillingly whisked away from his duties at St Luke’s,” he reveals, “It is always a delight to be work with Jake and Helen, and to welcome Bhav aboard the TARDIS as Keira. The chemistry between Jake and Bhav was amazing, and it was great to have everyone back in a studio. Lou and Matt have pulled together a brilliant story, perfectly capturing the spirit of the Twelfth Doctor’s TV adventures, while pushing it into new territory.”

Meanwhile, Bhavnisha Parmar talks about her role as the Doctor’s latest companion. “Working with Big Finish was an absolute dream. From the first day to the last, as a whole team – production and cast, we created some wonderful acting moments. Being back in the studio with the full cast was also a delight. Having the presence of actors and the character’s energy just brought an already exciting script to life! Jake is an amazing actor and human being. He made the days so fun and we gelled so well from the word go – I couldn’t have asked for a better scene partner.

“What can I say about playing Keira? She’s a strong female, funny and feisty – such a treat to play her. Her emotional arc is not one you see a lot in female characters and that is a true gem about her. I’m really excited about what the future holds for the box set, for the team and for Keira! Until then…”
