No plot details have been made public just yet, but Fugitive Doctor actress Martin previously told the Big Finish site: "Big Finish do amazing work – they are a vital part of the fandom. I'm over the moon to be joining this iconic show. I can't wait to see what stories they have in store for the Fugitive Doctor."

The audiobook company's chairman Jason Haigh-Ellery added: "I first met Jo Martin at a Doctor Who convention in February of this year, where she wowed the crowds with her enthusiasm for the programme and the role of the Fugitive Doctor.

"Her excitement was palpable – Jo obviously loves the role and we are so excited to create new adventures for her to star in. As the Fugitive Doctor herself once said, 'You're going to love this...'"

Doctor Who will return for its 14th series in May, airing on BBC One in the UK and Disney+ elsewhere. Classic episodes of Doctor Who are available on BBC iPlayer in the UK.
