Sometimes the best parts of Doctor Who don't even appear in the TV show.
The feisty Lucie Miller (voiced by national treasure Sheridan Smith) was a companion for the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) in a series of audio adventures from Big Finish several years ago.
And the brash Northern lass won over our hearts and minds.
And now, this week, one of the Doctor's greatest companions, is back in a new series of adventures, filling in some of the gaps in her previous timeline of tales with The Doctor.
It’s been several months since Lucie Miller, Blackpool’s mouthiest, landed up travelling through space and time in the company of the Doctor, the last living person to believe that frock coats are acceptable apparel.
They’ve met Daleks on Red Rocket Rising, Cybermen on the planet Lonsis and alien monsters eating glam rockers at a service station just off the M62.
But their greatest adventures are yet to come…
Volume One of The Further Adventures Of Lucie Miller is now available direct from Big Finish, for £19.99 on download or £24.99 on CD, and you can learn more about the four adventures in this box set here.
