Former 'Doctor Who' Actor Christopher Eccleston is Returning To The Franchise - Find Out How Here!

Christopher Eccleston is making his return to the Doctor Who fandom!

The 56-year-old actor, who starred as the Ninth Doctor in the long-running BBC franchise, will be coming back as the voice of the Ninth Doctor in an audio series.

The series will feature twelve full-cast audio adventures that will be released across four box sets, starting with volume one in May 2021.

“After 15 years it will be exciting to revisit the Ninth Doctor’s world,” Christopher shared in a statement. “Bringing back to life a character I love playing.”

Big Finish’s Chairman, Jason Haigh-Ellery added, “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.”

He went on, “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.”

Christopher left the franchise after just one season playing the popular character, which is something he’s come to regret doing.

Recently, Christopher admitted that while he was on the show, he was very ill and battling anorexia.
