    Radio Times is in on the action:

    They may even have an interview, though I suspect it's nabbed from somewhere else:

    It's great to finally see this. Although I'm not the biggest fan of Tennant's Doctor, I enjoyed his partnership with Catherine Tate. But more importantly, it's simply nice to see the new series Doctors being given the same Big Finish treatment as the original series Doctors, and an opportunity to expand and possibly improve on their tv eras. Just look at how drastically Big Finish managed to improve Colin's Doctor.

    I wonder if we'll finally get Eccleston to do one 10 years or so down the line?

    I somehow think there's more chance of getting to Mars by Thursday fortnight...

    I'm pleased this is happening!

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    I'm pleased about this too - it's my fave Nu Who pairing!

    Eccleston will do it eventually I suspect.

    This is obviously great news, although I don't expect the quality will be very high. It's already stretched thin with an insane release rate, and the writers and casts of these stories (Beth Chalmers, Dan Starkey etc. I suspect they literally went through their address book and begged) suggest these will be production line big Finish.

    You can't blame them, but nabbing the New Series license has left them with literally more money-spinning release opportunities than they have time to release. Hence Paul McGann's Time War box set, under any other circumstances a top draw, has been shunted to an astonishing Christmas 2017 release slot. None of this bodes well quality-wise!

    Yes! You can hear the trailer here!

    I'm still dithering about whether to get the special edition or just the download versions of the three stories. The trailer has raised my expectations is has to be said and I tend to adore anything written by Jenny Colgan.

    The First one was great fun. Tennant and Tate sound delighted to be back and the fast paced fun story was very much in the vein of season 4- a little like Partners in Crime, a fun thriller.

    Only thing missing was Murray Gold's Doctor/ Donna themes, but even that only occurred to me afterwards.

    Good start

    Mette and I listened to Technophobia last night and enjoyed it a lot, it took a little while to get going but overall I've no complaints and it was lovely to hear Tennant and Tate back together again.

    I enjoyed it too - they managed to make it as both recognisably a TV episode of the period and a BF. Roll on the next one!

    Also mightily enjoyed Time Reaver - Donna Noble really flips between being hysterical and being highly sympathetic. There's something very disturbing about a weapon that slows down time at the point of impact so that your death is lingering Terry Molloy is in this one - a sure fire hallmark of quality!

    They're all pretty impressive, but Death & The Queen was the out-and-out winner for me.

    And happiness lingering to the point where you can't appreciate it. Brrr!

    Death and the Queen was well done, except for the awkward principal it's based on - aliens protecting a nation for 500 years, fine; but the royal family survives by, or despite the death of the new queens? How did the Dowager Queen survive, for a few years, let alone the royalty for half a millennium? (There are methods used in the real world which allows it, but...)

    Yep Death & The Queen was the highlight for me too! Her Noble Majesty really took to the role with great aplomb - despite now having the mother-in-law from hell
