Christopher Eccleston Returning to Doctor Who

Big Finish announced today that Christopher Eccleston will be returning to the role of the 9th Doctor for a series of audio stories. The set of twelve full-cast stories will be released beginning in May, with more information set to be released at a later date. Big Finish chairman Jason Haigh-Ellery commented,
I first talked to Christopher about returning to the role of the Doctor at the Gallifrey One convention in February this year. Christopher said he was enjoying meeting the fans and was pleased that his Doctor was remembered so fondly.  He indicated he would be open to discussing a project with Big Finish. And then the pandemic happened and time moved both quickly and very slowly. Over recent months, ideas have been exchanged and discussions had. I am so pleased that Christopher has decided to return to the role with us – and I'm excited to welcome him to the Big Finish family as we discover the new adventures of the Ninth Doctor.
Eccleston himself said,
After 15 years it will be exciting to revisit the Ninth Doctor's world, bringing back to life a character I love playing.
Pre-orders are currently available.
