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.

Publisher's summary[]

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?

Uncredited cast[]


  • 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.

Story notes[]

  • 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.
