The Other Side was the third story of The Ninth Doctor Chronicles, produced by Big Finish Productions. It was written by Scott Handcock, performed by Nicholas Briggs and Bruno Langley and featured the Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler and Adam Mitchell.
Rose has invited a new friend on board the TARDIS, against the Doctor’s better judgement. But when the Time Lord tries to take his unwelcome guest home, a temporal tsunami cuts the journey short. The travellers find the source of the disturbance inside an abandoned cinema. Will Adam Mitchell help or hinder when the Doctor and Rose discover what is lurking on the other side of the screen?
to be added
- Ninth Doctor - Nicholas Briggs (BFX: The Ninth Doctor Chronicles)
- Bygone Horde - Bruno Langley (BFX: The Ninth Doctor Chronicles)
- Rose and the Doctor quibble over whether TARDIS is "Time and Relative Dimensions in Space", or "Time and Relative Dimension in Space", in the singular.
- In the cinema, there was a poster for the first movie Adam's mum ever owned on DVD.
- When the Doctor re-encounters Rose in 1922, he tells her he waited 28 years from where he initially ended up.
- The Doctor tells Rose that young people from the 21st century are "all texting, emoticons and MySpace".
- Rose and Adam have swapped phone numbers.
- Adam has a smart phone, which vibrates continually when he receives a call.
- The Bygone Horde were victims of the Time War.
- The phrase "The trip of a lifetime" is used at the end of the story; this references the words spoken by the Doctor to the viewing audience during the first BBC One trailer promoting the return of the series in 2005.
- This story ended in such a way where more adventures with Adam were possible, but Langley's conviction of sexual assault the same year of its release resulted in these potential plans being completely abandoned.
- This story takes place in a short gap between Adam leaving GeoComTex with the Doctor and Rose (TV: Dalek) and his one trip to Satellite Five in the year 200,000, which ended with the Doctor sending him back home in light of his abuse of the Infospike. (TV: The Long Game)
- The Doctor has altered Rose's phone so she can call anyone in time and space. (TV: The End of the World)
- While Adam marvels at the TARDIS interior, Rose finishes his sentence by saying it's "bigger on the inside", as she had done herself. (TV: Rose) He corrects her, saying that it's dimensionally transcendental, (TV: The Robots of Death, et al.) similar to how Rory Williams will have knowledge of the concept. (TV: The Vampires of Venice)
- The Doctor refers to Adam as "pretty" again, (TV: Dalek) and as Rose's boyfriend. (TV: The Long Game) The latter confuses Rose and makes her believe he is talking about calling Mickey. The Doctor also reluctantly tells Adam he needs his help over the phone, as he'd done with Mickey. (TV: World War Three)
- The Doctor once again uses the phrases "stupid ape" (TV: Rose) and jiggery pokery. (TV: The End of the World)
- The Doctor says that Adam "reversed the polarity". (TV: The Sea Devils)
- The Doctor tells Adam that, among other things, the sonic screwdriver does shelves. (TV: The Doctor Dances)
- Rose recognises that the Doctor acknowledges the Bygone Horde just as he did the Gelth (TV: The Unquiet Dead) and the Nestene Consciousness, also victims of the Last Great Time War. (TV: Rose)
- The Doctor says that the TARDIS "..can take you anywhere in the universe. To any city on any planet, at any point in that planet's existence." His eighth incarnation offered up a near exact description of the ship. (TV: Doctor Who)
