Survival of the Fittest

Sylvester McCoy and Tracey Childs in Survival of the Fittest from Big FinishBig Finish have released confirmation of their February schedule of Doctor Who adventures, and it’s a great selection with plenty of Doctors to go around!

Survival of the Fittest stars Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor and Tracey Childs as Elizabeth Klein.

The hive of the Vrill bears the scars of a terrifying cataclysm. Only a handful remain alive, hatched after the holocaust of the mysterious Winterlack. The Vrill seek a new Authority. They find the Doctor, a two-legged creature who can lead them to survival. He must solve the mystery of the Carrion beast that haunts the lower chambers. He must face the Winterlack that still stalk the mountains. And he must find a path that does not lead to extinction…

Also included on that release is the one-parter Klein’s Story, in which the Nazi scientist recalls her past history to the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy). And featuring in this adventure is none other than Paul McGann as a very significant character called ‘Johann Schmidt’…

Meanwhile February also sees the release of the Lost Stories: The Hollows of Time, a Sixth Doctor adventure starring Colin Baker as the Doctor and Nicola Bryant as Peri, while the Companions Chronicles adventure The Suffering stars Peter Purves and Maureen O’Brien as Steven Taylor and Vicki.

All of these releases are available to order now from!
