BRAND-NEW AUDIO ADVENTURES STARRING BBC TV‘S EVER-POPULAR TIME LORD!

Since 1999, Big Finish Productions have produced regular, fully-licensed ongoing audio adventures for the Doctor and his companions on CD. Each four-part story stars members of the original Doctor Who cast in brand-new adventures through time and space.

Presented in this book are the original scripts for four of Big Finish’s most popular plays, one per Doctor.

From the new run of Fifth Doctor adventures starring Peter Davison comes Loups-Garoux, penned by Marc Platt who wrote the very last Doctor Who story made by BBC Television in 1989. Colin Baker returned as the Sixth Doctor in The Holy Terror, by award-winning playwright Robert Shearman. Representing the Seventh Doctor, played once again by Sylvester McCoy, is The Fires of Vulcan by acclaimed novelist Steve Lyons. Rounding this collection off is Neverland, the most recent Eighth Doctor audio adventure featuring Paul McGann and authored by Doctor Who comic strip writer and editor Alan Barnes.

The scripts reprinted in this volume include dialogue and sequences missing from the finished releases. A must for every fan of the Doctor’s timeless adventures!


LOUPS-GAROUX
Featuring the Fifth Doctor and Turlough

Germany, 1589: the townspeople of Cologne pronounce a sentence of death on a mass-murderer who has stalked the countryside in the guise of a ferocious wolf.

Russia, 1812: retreating from Napoleon’s invading forces, a merchant’s daughter is rescued from bandits by a handsome partisan with a ravenous appetite.

Brazil, 2080: the Doctor and Turlough arrive for the Rio de Janeiro carnival.

Is wealthy heiress Ileana de Santos all that she seems? What sinister ailment afflicts her invalid son, tended by the mysterious Dr Hayashi? And who exactly is Rosa, engaged on a secret quest to fulfil the destiny of her extinct tribe?

Time is running out for Rosa, Ileana and the Doctor, as the fearsome shadow of an ancient werewolf moves ever closer...

THE HOLY TERROR
Featuring the Sixth Doctor and Frobisher

The TARDIS lands in a forbidding castle in a time of religious upheaval. The old god has been overthrown, and all heretics are to be slaughtered. Obviously it isn’t the sort of thing which would happen there every day — just very few years or so.

Soon after the Doctor and Frobisher are hailed as messengers from heaven, they become vital to opposing factions in their struggle for power. But will they be merely the acolytes of the new order — or will they be made gods themselves?

Evil is growing deep within the crypt. And the pair soon find out that they will be lucky to escape their new immortality with their lives...

THE FIRES OF VULCAN
Featuring the Seventh Doctor and Mel

Two thousand years ago, a cataclysmic volcanic eruption wiped the Roman city of Pompeii from the face of the Earth. It also buried the Doctor’s TARDIS...

Arriving in Pompeii one day before the disaster, the Doctor and Mel find themselves separated from their ship and entangled in local politics. With time running out, they fight to escape from the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, but how can they succeed when history itself is working against them?

NEVERLAND
Featuring the Eighth Doctor and Charley, with Romana

The Web of Time is stretched to breaking. History is leaking like a sieve. In the Citadel of Gallifrey, the Time Lords fear the end of everything that is, everything that was... everything that will be.

The Doctor holds the Time Lords’ only hope — but exactly what lengths will the Celestial Intervention Agency go to in their efforts to retrieve something important from within his TARDIS? What has caused the Imperiatrix Romanadvoratrelundar to declare war on the rest of creation? And can an old nursery rhyme about a monster called Zagreus really be coming true?

The answers can only be found outside the bounds of the universe itself, in a place that history forgot. In the wastegrounds of eternity.

In the Neverland.
