2.1 Infamy of the Zaross
When Jackie Tyler takes a trip to visit her old friend Marge in Norwich, she finds her holiday immediately interrupted in the worst way possible – an alien invasion! The infamous Zaross have come to take over the Earth.
Or have they? After Jackie calls in The Doctor and Rose to deal with the menace, it soon becomes clear that this is a very unusual invasion indeed.
The Doctor is about to uncover one of the most heinous crimes in the history of the galaxy. And if he can’t stop it an awful lot of people are going to die.

The Tenth Doctor and Rose have landed in HMV!
In an exclusive deal with High Street retailer HMV, Doctor Who: Infamy of the Zaross produced by Big Finish Productions and starring David Tennant and Billie Piper will be available for the first time on vinyl record.
From the Saturday 16th June, HMV will be stocking a strictly limited pressing of Infamy of the Zaross on yellow 180GM heavyweight vinyl. This will be available in participating stores only, limited to 750 units.
To quote the Tenth Doctor … “OH YES!”
David Tennant’s Doctor, portrayed on screen from December 2005 until December 2009, returned in the 50th Anniversary special The Day of the Doctor, with Matt Smith and Sir John Hurt in 2013, and on audio for Big Finish with Catherine Tate in 2016.
Billie Piper portrayed The Doctor’s much-loved companion Rose in 2005 and 2006, returning for a number of stories in 2008. She also appeared as The Moment – which had taken Rose’s form – in The Day of the Doctor. This new story was Billie’s eagerly-awaited debut for Big Finish.
A spokesperson from HMV said, “We’re delighted to welcome Dr. Who back on vinyl in time for Father’s Day. It’s just what The Doctor ordered!”
Infamy of the Zaross guest stars Camille Coduri as Jackie Tyler who is Rose Tyler’s mum. When Jackie takes a trip to visit her old friend Marge in Norwich, she finds her holiday immediately interrupted in the worst way possible – an alien invasion! The infamous Zaross have come to take over Earth. Or have they?
“I’m delighted to see Infamy of the Zaross on vinyl, especially in HMV, ” says writer John Dorney. “I’ve still got my Gran’s old His Master’s Voice record player in my house. Quite a prized bit of furniture, which has such a store of memories for me… This record renaissance is delightful and I’m looking forward to listening to that beautiful warm sound on yellow vinyl soon.”
“It was such a special time for me, working with Billie and David on the show, ” says Nicholas Briggs, who is the Voice of the Daleks on and executive producer for Big Finish, “and it is such an honour to revisit it with them on audio.”
Big Finish Productions is a production company and publisher who produce CDs, downloads and books. They are best known for their Doctor Who ranges of plays but also produce a wide range of audio drama featuring the characters from Torchwood, Sherlock Holmes, Blake’s 7, Dark Shadows, Captain Scarlet, The Avengers, The Prisoner, Survivors, The Omega Factor and more.
Executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery says: “Getting David and Billie back together was definitely on my bucket list – two wonderful actors who created an era of Doctor Who which is so fondly remembered and who brought a different aspect of the relationship between The Doctor and his companion to the fore – love, both platonic and unrequited. It’s great to have the Tenth Doctor and Rose on record!”
David Tennant previously reprised his role for The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 1, released in May 2016 by Big Finish, which saw him back together with Catherine Tate’s Donna.
The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 2, was released in November 2017 and includes Infamy of the Zaross and two further Tenth Doctor adventures. CDs and downloads are available to buy now from the Big Finish website. www.bigfinish.com
