Paul McGann returns as the Eighth in trailer for Doctor Who: Connections

The Eighth Doctor may have not had much time in the TARDIS on screen over the years, but those who are fans of the work of Paul McGann as the famous Time Lord from the BBC’s flagship show will today be pleased to see that trailer has been released for McGann’s new adventure, Doctor Who: Connections from Big Finish.

The audio adventure, which also stars Nicola Walker, Hattie Morahan, Nina Wadia and Shane Ritchie to name but a few is out now, but you can enjoy a two-minute sample of the series in the video below.

The official synopsis for the series from Big Finish read: “The Doctor, Liv and Helen are out in the universe, picking up missing pieces, and finding lost connections.

“After a package entangles them with shifty Time Lord Drax, the TARDIS crew are haunted by past loves on a space station, before Helen encounters somebody she believed long gone…”

Part one of the series is called Here Lies Drax and is written by John Dorney. The second part of the story is called The Love Vampires and is written by James Kettle, with the third part entitled Albie’s Angels by Roy Gill. 

Big Finish recently also announced that Eve Myles will be reprising her role as Eve Myles for a new audio version of Torchwood.

In Torchwood: Among Us, “Torchwood are on the run. As the world puts itself back together, Torchwood are there to pick up the pieces. And they find something nasty hiding in them.”

There is also to be a multi-Doctor spectacular in 2023 which will star no less than seven Doctors unite, including David Tennant and Christopher Eccleston.

On TV, of course, we have the three 60th anniversary specials starring David Tennant to look forward to as well as the first episode of Doctor Who season 14 starring Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson.
