While Christopher Eccleston may have brought Doctor Who back onto our TV screens, it was David Tenant who managed to bring a generation of new fans on board.

The Tenth Doctor, often cited as the most popular and best Doctor, last appeared on television in the one-off special, The Day of the Doctor, aired in 2013.

Finally, Tenant will be returning to the franchise once more, along with co-star Catherine Tate - who played Donna Noble in the series - for a three-part audio drama series.

According to Big Finish, the series, titled Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures, will open with Technophobia, written by Matt Fitton. The story is set in a London slightly in the future, where mankind is gradually losing its ability to use everyday technology.

The second, Time Reaver, by Jenny T Colgan, sees the Doctor and Donna end up on “an entirely mechanical planet” called Calibris, where a deadly black market has opened.

The last story, Death and the Queen, by James Goss, sees Donna fall in love with a man on the planet Goritiana, a place the Doctor has never heard of before.

Along with the news of new audio-dramas, Big Finish also released this short clip of the pair talking about the show and what makes Tenant such a great Doctor.

This won’t be the first time the pair have done Doctor Who audio dramas: both previously featured on the BBC’s book novels about the Tenth Doctors travels.

You can preorder the series now, which will be released May 2016.
