Big Finish The Ninth Doctor Adventures 1.3 Lost Warriors

Available to order from

The Ninth Doctor finds the Lost Warriors

Join the hunt for warriors of war in three new Doctor Who – The Ninth Doctor Adventures, due for release in November 2021 from Big Finish Productions.

The next box set of full cast audio adventures for Christopher Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor invites listeners to follow the TARDIS to a 1930s country mansion, the Scottish Highlands and an iconic movie set – where he runs into one very familiar face…

The Doctor meets many strangers on his travels. Some are destined to end up friends, while others were always going to become his enemies.

And some were once warriors, with reasons of their own to remain hidden from the universe…

The three exciting new stories included in this volume are as follows:

  • The Hunting Season by James Kettle
  • The Curse of Lady Macbeth by Lizzie Hopley
  • Monsters In Metropolis by John Dorney

Doctor Who – The Ninth Doctor Adventures: Lost Warriors is now available for pre-order exclusively at the Big Finish website , from just £19.99.

Christopher Eccleston said: “It’s just magical to me, to be playing a hero again. There’s a great positivity and optimism to the Doctor, and what Doctor Who can do with these audios by reaching out to those young hearts and minds, to those young imaginations – it’s beautiful.”

Director Barnaby Edwards added: “It was a huge treat to be reunited with Christopher Eccleston, 16 years after we last worked together on Doctor Who. He had such energy and enthusiasm and inventive brilliance then – and he’s still got it now.

“These three stories see the Ninth Doctor, himself a lone veteran of a great war, encountering three other ‘lost warriors’. Each adventure works as an entirely separate entity with great plots, fun characters and surprising villains, but together they present a fascinating dialogue on how conflict can change a person. And that’s especially true of the Doctor himself.

“I love all three scripts. They’re so varied and so perfect for the Ninth Doctor. All are period pieces, which is an area where Chris’s very modern Doctor works so brilliantly, and all have a background of conflict, be it the aftershock of the First World War, the genesis of the Second World War or the innumerable battles in 11th-century Scotland. And, hey, where else could you find the Doctor encountering not only Macbeth and Lady Macbeth but also Fritz Lang?”

Throughout these historical adventures, Christopher Eccleston is joined by a brilliantly talented vocal cast. Box set opener The Hunting Season features BAFTA nominee Alex Jennings (The Crown, A Very English Scandal) as master of Dewberry Hall Lord Hawthorn, Annette Badland (Doctor Who, Ted Lasso) as cook Mrs Goose and Don Gilét (Doctor Who, EastEnders) as the brutal butler Streatham, while The Curse of Lady Macbeth stars Neve McIntosh (The Paternoster Gang, Traces) as brave ruler Gruach, and closing episode Monsters in Metropolis features Big Finish’s own Nicholas Briggs as the Cyberman.

Doctor Who fans worldwide can now order all four volumes of The Ninth Doctor Adventures, which are available in three formats – collector’s edition CD, digital download or limited edition gatefold triple LP vinyl – exclusively from the Big Finish website at

Big Finish listeners can save by ordering a bundle of the entire series for just £88 (as a collector’s edition box set) or £78 (as a download).

Doctor Who – The Ninth Doctor Adventures triple LP vinyls are strictly limited to a pressing of 1,000 per volume, and can be ordered at £35.99 each, or £132 for the bundle of all four albums, again exclusively at the Big Finish website.

However, listeners purchasing vinyl LP editions will receive a download of the story automatically and be given access to the CD edits as a bonus download. Episodes will be edited specifically for the vinyl format, presented as 2 episodes, one on each side, each with opening and closing music. In addition, all pre-orders of the vinyls will also receive the behind the extras as a bonus download.

    Is the cyberman not designed to look like the robot in metropolis, hence Fritz Lang?

      If you look at the head you can see that design

      That’s what I meant, there are a few comments on the cybermans appearance but I think it’s been altered to resemble Maria in metropolis hence the look.

    Such a cute Cyberman! His head is held on with paperclips!

    That Cyberman is too cute, why does it look cute?
    I like my Cybermen to have glass jaws and hidden eyebrows that you don’t notice until somebody points them out to you when you are 40 and now can’t unsee.

      I think it’s meant to resemble a robot from the film ‘Metropolis.’

    Really looking forward to this! Thoroughly enjoyed volume 2, ‘Respond to all Calls’, despite initially not having high hopes for this range after the hugely disappointing ‘Ravagers’. Can’t wait to see the individual covers, as well.

    That creature to the left of the cyberman looks like the artist photoshopped one of those power armor guys from Fallout (T-45 suit from Fallout 3/New Vegas era graphics, to be exact)

      Its holding the fallout 3 Super Sledge too… exactly the same.

      Is that legal? Due to copyrights etc.

      I’ve observed this before when they blatantly used an image of the Indominus Rex from Jurassic World in one of their covers. These are definitely copyright protected, so I imagine they only get away with it due to the general lack of exposure these audios get.

      That Jurassic World image was used by mistake and was then changed when the artist found out where it was from.

      Looks like the NCR salvaged power armour, they even kept the red stripes on the biceps…

    Love that Cyberman design

    That cyberman is amazing, creeps me the hell out

      That is a cyberman with a difference. It has a comical babyface.
