John Hurt first appeared as The War Doctor in Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary special and he is coming back. John Hurt is set to return as The War Doctor in an ongoing audio drama set to be released in December. This audio drama will be set during the Time War.
Four boxed sets of audio plays—each set containing three linked stories, around an hour in length, set during the height of the Time Lord’s battle with the Daleks. Only one other cast member was announced: Blake’s 7 star Jacqueline Pierce, who will play a Time Lord Cardinal named Ollistra with a major role in the war against the Daleks.
The War Doctor: Only The Monstrous will be out in December.
