Big Finish Productions has released details of their latest full-cast audio dramas for the Ninth Doctor, due for release in November 2022. 

Following their recent return in Doctor Who’s Legend of the Sea Devils, the aquatic monsters are back once again in the box set’s opening audio adventure. But this time they’re in space!   

The Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) also meets the first woman awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and faces a furniture store with a difference with Liv Chenka (Nicola Walker) and Tania Bell (Rebecca Root).  

Doctor Who — The Ninth Doctor Adventures: Hidden Depths is now available to pre-order for just £24.99 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) or £19.99 (download only) from

Alternatively, Big Finish listeners can save money by pre-ordering all four volumes of The Ninth Doctor Adventures series two in a bundle from just £78.  

The star-packed guest cast list includes Jeremy Swift (Ted Lasso, Downton Abbey), Olivier Award winner Jamie Parker (Becoming Elizabeth, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), Sasha Behar (Coronation Street, Foundation), Diana Quick (Doctor Who: Scream of the Shalka, Brideshead Revisited), Nicholas Briggs (Doctor Who) and Yasmin Mwanza (Spider-Man: Far from Home).  

Sometimes things lurk below the surface which only the Doctor can see… 

  From a moon with poison seas, to a 19th century health spa, even somewhere as everyday as a furniture store on a Sunday afternoon - there are always hidden depths and unseen dangers to uncover!  

The three adventures in this box set are as follows:  

The Seas of Titan by Lizbeth Myles  

Out on Saturn’s moon, Titan, an outpost all-but-forgotten by Earth struggles on against the odds. 

As the Doctor joins explorers deep in the methane seas, they discover a hidden civilisation. But will the Sea Devils prove to be the colony’s salvation or its final destruction?  

Lay Down Your Arms by Lisa McMullin  

1864. Instead of relaxing at the Bad Homburg Spa, its visitors are fighting. And Bertha Kinzky, housekeeper to Alfred Nobel, is appalled. Perhaps the mysterious Herr Schmidt can help? 

Soon, Bertha is contending with aliens, as well as her mother’s matchmaking, as she and the Doctor try to keep the peace.  

Flatpack by John Dorney  

Liv Chenka and Tania Bell are spending Sunday afternoon on that most traditional of couple activities. Furniture-shopping! 

But just how long has London’s newest Flatpack store been open? Who is its mysterious manager? And is it even Sunday? Liv is about to run into a very old friend…

Producer David Richardson said:

Sea Devils in space! We know from the Eleventh Doctor’s era that the Silurians were a space-faring species and now we find a colony of Sea Devils off-world, in the seas of Titan’s largest moon. What a glorious concept. And the Doctor is about to discover that human-Sea Devil relations are no less fractious away from Terra Firma…
