Big Finish Productions is planning new Doctor Who audio adventures in the era of Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor, starring actor and impressionist Jacob Dudman.
The new Twelfth Doctor Chronicles boxed set will come in February 2020 and include four stories, the first to be announced being “The Charge of the Night Brigade” written 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.
“I am huge fan of the Twelfth Doctor and a chance to create new adventures for him is utterly thrilling,” said New Series Doctor Who Chronicles producer Alfie Shaw. “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 — you can also hear his uncanny portrayal in “Doctor Who Short Trip: Dead Media.”
Plus, the Eleventh Doctor and the Twelfth Doctor will be meeting in May 2020, in “Short Trip Regeneration Impossible,” coming May 2020.
