Big Finish have announced that Matthew Waterhouse will be reprising his role as Adric in three new adventures alongside Peter Davison as the Doctor, Janet Fielding as Tegan and Sarah Sutton as Nyssa:
2017 will find the Fifth Doctor joined by Adric, Nyssa and Tegan for three new adventures set within Season 19 of the classic television series!
Thirty-five years since they parted ways on television, Matthew Waterhouse will rejoin his TV co-stars Peter Davison, Sarah Sutton and Janet Fielding for three new Big Finish releases, following an appearance together in the critically-acclaimed Doctor Who: The Fifth Doctor Box Set.
Doctor Who main range script editor Alan Barnes said:
I've got a huge amount of affection for Adric and the whole of Season 19. It's the series that was on TV when I was 11, turning 12, which is a great moment to be a Doctor Who fan, when you're madly enthusiastic but not yet so insanely critical that you can't enjoy it!
The new trilogy begins with Doctor Who: The Star Men by Andrew Smith; who made his writing debut with Adric's introductory adventure Full Circle. Barnes continues:
The first thing I wanted to do was to get Andrew writing Adric again, because he'd been such a huge part of the character's development. So with The Star Men I asked Andrew to write something significant for Adric, something to serve the character well and perhaps show him in a slightly different light. I wanted a cosmically big sort of story, too, “full of spacey stuff”. I think it's a bit of a shame that Season 18's script editor Christopher H Bidmead didn't do Season 19 as well, so that was part of the thinking: “What would Bidmead do...?
The trilogy continues with Doctor Who: The Contingency Club by Phil Mulryne – set within an exclusive Victorian gentleman's club - and Doctor Who: Zaltysby Matthew J Elliot.
Zaltys came about because it struck me that there are a few hints in Season 19 that some of the directors have been looking at pop videos of the day – in the “Tegan's mind” bits of Kinda, for example, and in the Adam Ant-like “chandelier jump” in Castrovalva – so I asked Matthew to think about the sort of story that could have been told in the language of the pop video circa 1981/2. Yes, obviously, we don't have the visuals, but every story needs a starting point, and that can be almost anything. You'll have to wait to work out which particular videos we were looking at!
The three stories will be released by Big Finish from January next year, and can be pre-ordered from their website.
Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! The bumbling duffel-coated Nardole is back!
Following his hilarious appearance in The Husbands Of River Song, Matt Lucas returns to Doctor Who from the opening episode of series 10, which starts filming next week in Cardiff (Monday 20 June).
Commenting on his return to Doctor Who, Matt Lucas, says: “I’m chuffed to bits that Nardole is returning to the TARDIS for some more adventures. I loved acting with Peter and I’m excited to work with Pearl.”
Bringing her energy and zest to the show, Pearl Mackie embarks on her first week of filming as she takes up the role of the Doctor’s companion. In her first major television role following her West End appearance in The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time, she’ll be bursting on to screens in the opening episode.
Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, adds: “Delighted and slightly amazed to be welcoming Matt Lucas back on to the TARDIS – and this time it’s not just for Christmas, he’s sticking around. One of the greatest comedy talents on planet Earth is being unleashed on all of time and space.”
Stephanie Hyam will play a guest cast role in the new series and is recognised for her performance as Lily Clarke in Jekyll & Hyde. She’s also appeared in Peaky Blinders, Murdered By My Boyfriend, and Sherlock.
The opening episode of series 10 is written by Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat, executive produced by Brian Minchin, produced by Peter Bennett and directed by Lawrence Gough. The second episode in the new series has been crafted by award-winning screenwriter Frank Cottrell-Boyce.
Block 2 writers are Sarah Dollard (writer of acclaimed episode Face The Raven) and Mike Bartlett (multi-award-winning Doctor Foster).
Doctor Who is a BBC Cymru Wales-produced drama for BBC One. It will return in December 2016 with a Christmas Special, followed by the new series in 2017.
Peter Capaldi has revealed he has filmed ‘something’ new concerning former companion Clara Oswald.
Speaking at a recent Awesome Con panel he teases: “I’m not sure how successfully Clara was able to wipe his mind. In fact I just did a… I was about to tell you something I can’t tell you.”
He adds: “I just shot something that Clara was still there in…”
However given that Capaldi has not yet started filming Doctor Who, it seems he was probably talking about his rumoured appearance in spin-off Class where -- The Doctor returns to Coal Hill School and sees a memorial wall dedicated to Clara, triggering his memory of her briefly.
Peter Capaldisaid he will begin filming in a couple weeks. It is expected production will begin with the 2016 Christmas special.
Secondly, Mark Gatiss stated he is scripting his ninth episode for since the show returned.
Gatiss confirmed the inevitable in an interview with WhoSFX when quizzed about his first contribution: “It seems so natural now (as I write my ninth episode – ten if you count the un-produced one!) but the forty five minute format took some getting used to.”
Up to this point Gatiss has penned The Unquiet Dead, The Idiot’s Lantern, Victory of the Daleks, Night Terrors, Cold War, The Crimson Horror, Robot of Sherwood, and finally Sleep No More.
Previously Gatiss indicated he may follow Sleep No More with a sequel: “It does have an unhappy ending. Earthshock might be the last time that happened. The Doctor loses … It doesn’t mean they’re going to win eventually. The Doctor knows something’s wrong, so he’s not fooled…and I do have a sequel planned.”
