It has been announced that David Tennant and Billie Piper will be reprising their roles as the Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler for three original Big Finish audios.

The beloved duo won a legion of followers when they shared the TARDIS together during Series 2 back in 2006. Most recently, they both appeared in the 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor, in 2013, however this new trilogy of adventures – which, for obvious reasons, is set before the events of Doomsday – will serve as the official reunion that fans have been waiting for.

Their comeback will form The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Volume 2 and will be released in November 2017. The first story, Attack of the Zaross by John Dorney, will also co-star Camille Coduri as Jackie Tyler, followed by Sword of the Chevalier by Guy Adam and then Cold Vengeance by Matt Fitton, featuring the Ice Warriors voiced by Nicholas Briggs.

Colin Baker has recently released a collection of his weekly columns that were originally published in his local newspaper, the Bucks Free Press.

The Sixth Doctor actor has been contributing to the paper for the past 21 years and this compilation brings together his articles from 2011 to 2016, covering national and international affairs as well as more parochial issues such as local parking and school plays. Described as “the perfect book when you need a realistic view of life”, Colin’s unique wisdom will resonate with all, whether old, grumpy or otherwise.

Published by FBS Publishing, with illustrations and cover artwork by Owen Claxton, the aptly titled Sixth Sense is available now from Amazon and other online sellers, RRP £9.99.

The end of last night’s Series 10 premiere treated us to a brand new Coming Soon trailer which gave us our first look at the Master’s upcoming return.

Ok, so admittedly it was a very brief look (blink and you’ll miss it, in fact), but it’s still enough to get us excited. John Simm will be reprising his role as the renegade Time Lord to come face to face with his current incarnation, Missy.

The trailer also teases Mondasian Cybermen, Ice Warriors and the Doctor regenerating. No biggie. Nothing to see here…

Class creator Patrick Ness has urged US viewers to watch his Young Adult drama in order to help secure its future.

The Doctor Who spin off will make its debut across the pond on BBC America tonight, immediately after its parent show’s Series 10 premiere. Its showrunner has insisted that “there has been no decision made” regarding a second series, despite the fact that persistent rumours have suggested the contrary following its underwhelming response in the UK.

“America, watch it,” he told Inverse. “We want to do more.”

He continued: “There are still lots of stories for us to tell, especially with how it ends. I’ve got some evil stuff planned. I’ve got some evil ideas. Make sure you tell people, there’s evil stuff coming, so you need to watch. We’d love for America to embrace it. Fingers crossed.”
