Big Finish The Ninth Doctor Chronicles

Available to order from

Four news stories from the Ninth Doctor’s era, performed by Nicholas Briggs. Featuring Bruno Langley as Adam Mitchell and Camille Coduri as Jackie Tyler.

1. The Bleeding Heart by Cavan Scott

Galen is a place where people come to heal. The renowned ‘planet of peace’ seems the ideal venue for talks between two warring races. But when death disrupts the diplomacy, Cosmic Nine news reporter Adriana Jarsdel uncovers a different story. Luckily, someone is there to help. A battle-weary veteran from another war. The Doctor has come to Galen – but is he looking for peace, or something else entirely?

2. The Window on the Moor by Una McCormack

Emily and her sisters once told each other fables of warring kingdoms: wicked princes, noble dukes, and their battling armies. Now she wanders the moors of her childhood alone, remembering those tales. The TARDIS arrives amid a strange civil war, with prisons made of glass and cities stalked by terrifying beasts. As windows open between worlds, stories and storyteller meet, and Rose comes face to face with Emily Brontë.

3. The Other Side by Scott Handcock

Rose has invited a new friend on board the TARDIS, against the Doctor’s better judgement. But when the Time Lord tries to take his unwelcome guest home, a temporal tsunami cuts the journey short. The travellers find the source of the disturbance inside an abandoned cinema. Will Adam Mitchell help or hinder when the Doctor and Rose discover what is lurking on the other side of the screen?

4. Retail Therapy by James Goss

Jackie Tyler is a success. Every home should have a Glubby Glub, and Jackie is star saleswoman on the Powell Estate. At last, she’s found her calling and it’s only a matter of time before she can give Rose the life she deserves. But the Doctor isn’t impressed. Jackie Tyler isn’t just filling peoples’ houses with useless clutter. He believes she’s launching an alien invasion…

    Kinda think they should have hid Eccleston’s face kind of like for the pertwee adventures to symbolise it’s a different actor

    I’m kind of hoping this will tie into The Prisoners of Time Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Comic and not mess up continuity (No Spoilers)

    Im not a fan of the cover, yes it looks really good but the Jackie and Adam images just look misplaced to me

      The Adam one more so for me, as it’s been lifted from a screenshot, rather than coming from a promotional photo shoot. I do understand that they didn’t do those for many characters in season one, but still.

    Am I the only one who is excited to see Adam in this. Dont see why a lot of people hate him. Plus its a new set of writers who can improve the characters

      I don’t think you’re the only one excited that we’re getting some returning characters. But I would say there are a great many that are disappointed that Christopher Eccleston is not one of them.

      I believe it could go bad or good. I don’t understand the haters… we finally get a chance to flesh out his character more. I’m also glad it is before The Long Game so it doesn’t infringe upon the Prisoners Of Time.

    Adam makes Adric look like Ace (or who ever your favorite companion is)

    Hoping Christopher Eccleston would return, but oh well.

    How can Adam be in this? There’s no space, right? Aren’t Dalek and The Long Game set straight after each other?

    • Jay Glover

      February 10th, 2017 - 5:54pm

      Yes, exactly

    • Doctor Mysterio

      February 10th, 2017 - 7:41pm

      It could be set afterwards…

    • Anonymous

      February 10th, 2017 - 10:55pm

      I honestly don’t see why it would be set afterwards. It wouldn’t make much sense. Plus I doubt the Doctor would go back for him or to like, idk, chat? But again. You never know. Maybe it is set afterwards and it’s something to do with his forehead.

    • Doctor Mysterio

      February 11th, 2017 - 6:25am

      Well his forehead was left unresolved.

    • Jay Glover

      February 11th, 2017 - 8:21am

      Well, not quite they did make a comic book series called Prisoners of Time in 2013 about Adam kidnapping the other Doctor companions, I think IDW did that

    • The Werewolf

      March 31st, 2017 - 2:27am

      If you read the description, I think it implies it happens in between Dalek and Long Game somehow?

  • Jay Glover

    February 10th, 2017 - 3:34pm

    Saw this coming
    But I didn’t want adam

    Why is Adam in it, i thought he was the most hated character?

    • sam

      both the 6th and 8th doctors were pretty hated before big finish did stories with them too though so i’m interested to see what they do with him

  • Omega63

    February 10th, 2017 - 2:33pm

    oh that got me so excited for a moment :/

    • TheWarDoctor

      February 10th, 2017 - 2:56pm

      it is exciting!?!

    • Omega63

      February 10th, 2017 - 3:08pm

      Yeah, very exciting. But I mean like, ‘oh my is Chris back?’ excited is very different.
      Granted, I sort of predicted it would be this narration format 🙂
