The Big Finish Doctor Who Audio Drama Podcast: Into the TARDIS

Since 1999, Big Finish Productions has been producing full-cast audio adventures set in the world of Doctor Who. Featuring specially composed music and cinematic sound effects, these stories are officially licensed by the BBC and star original cast members of the TV series.

To mark 25 years of this output, Big Finish Productions, in association with BBC Studios, Zebralution Podcast, Apple and Acast, are excited to announce Into the TARDIS, which will showcase fan-favourite stories from Big Finish’s back catalogue.

The stories will be presented in episodic instalments released weekly on Saturdays – like the original serialised broadcast of classic Doctor Who stories on the BBC. Each episode will feature a brand-new introduction read by Colin Baker (who played the Sixth Doctor on TV and continues to do so for Big Finish), as well as behind-the-scenes interviews.

Into the TARDIS will begin in March 2024, with the first two episodes serialising Death and the Queen. Originally released by Big Finish in 2016, this full-cast audio drama stars David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor and Catherine Tate as Donna Noble, with a script by James Goss.

Big Finish chairman Jason Haigh-Ellery said:

“As part of the celebration marking 25 years of Big Finish Doctor Who audio drama productions, I am delighted to announce that Big Finish are partnering with BBC Studios, Zebralution, Apple and Acast to launch Into the TARDIS – the first officially licensed Doctor Who audio drama podcast. This is an initiative that we have been working on for some time and I am particularly excited about, as it will bring Big Finish’s work to a far wider audience.”

Jan Paterson, director of audiobooks at BBC Studios, added:

“For many years now, Big Finish has provided Doctor Who fans with thrilling audio dramas and we’re excited to see them extend their offering with a podcast.
