Donna Noble is Back for More Big Finish Stories


Catherine Tate is back today for more Doctor Who adventures!

The British actress reprises her role of Donna Noble in Donna Noble: Kidnapped! from Big Finish Productions. Jacqueline King is back as well as Sylvia Noble. Niky Wardley plays Donna’s best pal from school, Natalie. The stories take place after the events of The Library. Donna Noble: Kidnapped! is composed of four new adventures: 

‘Out of this World’ by Jacqueline Rayner

Donna’s home, but she’s not quite herself. Sylvia has some ideas to bring her out of herself – involving an old friend, and speed-dating… As schoolgirl BFFs Donna and Natalie get reacquainted, a mysterious stranger dogs their steps. Is the Doctor keeping tabs on her, or is the truth far more sinister?

‘Spinvasion’ by John Dorney

Donna and Nat have been stolen – along with the TARDIS – and they find themselves crash-landing on an alien world. On the planet Valdacki a very successful invasion is already underway. And it’s one that has the very best PR.

‘The Sorcerer’ of Albion by James Goss

Trying to get home, Donna and Nat end up in the right place at the wrong time – the Middle Ages! A monastery is under siege from the Burning Knights, and the great Sorcerer Parval calls on the assistance of another great mage. He has summoned Merlin herself – or as Nat knows her, Donna Noble!

‘The Chiswick Cuckoos’ by Matt Fitton

Donna’s home, but she’s not quite herself. Sylvia couldn’t be more pleased to see her daughter finally getting on with her life. But an alien plot is nearing completion, and the world needs saving. The Doctor is nowhere to be found, so it’s all up to Donna – and Nat!

Producer David Richardson recalled, “When we approached Catherine to see if she’d like to do more Tenth Doctor adventures, we also pitched the idea of Donna having her own spin-off series – and Catherine was hugely enthusiastic about the idea. Niky Wardley was our first choice for Donna’s best friend, Natalie, not only because we love working with her, but her long-standing creative relationship with Catherine just inspires truly golden moments.”

Actor, Catherine Tate said, “It’s just lovely to come back and do Donna, and especially doing it with Niky, that’s great fun. We’re friends, and we’ve known each other for a long time, so there’s a shorthand, like there is with me and David Tennant. It’s always great doing audio stuff. There are so many big ticks for audio. You don’t have to get up too early. It’s always warm. No one cares what you look like. And it just means you never have to let it go.”

Donna Noble: Kidnapped! is available on the Big Finish website as a five-disc box set or as a digital download.
