David Tennant and Billie Piper reunite for three new Big Finish Doctor Who productions…
David Tennant and Billie Piper are reprising their roles of The Tenth Doctor and his companion Rose Tyler in three new Doctor Who audio dramas from Big Finish Productions in arrangement with BBC Worldwide:
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. These new stories will be Billie’s eagerly-awaited debut for Big Finish.
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 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 back again!”
