The Fourth Doctor Has Landed!

It’s January 2012 and that can only mean one thing…the Fourth Doctor has finally materialised at Big Finish and is ready to make his spectacular debut on audio!

Joining Louise Jameson as Leela, Tom Baker has finally reprised his role as the Fourth Doctor and you can now be the owner of his brand new adventures on shiny CD or futuristic digital download.

You’ll have two choices of Baker-y greatness this month (trust us, they’re both fantastic – watch out for the review coming very soon to Kasterborous), the first is Destination: Nerva by Nicholas Briggs which sees the Doctor return to the Nerva beacon with Leela. But all is not going well and before they know it, they’ve landed themselves in a whole heap of trouble. This release is the first of six exciting new adventures in the lives of the Fourth Doctor and Leela.

The second release (or first if you’re considering story order) is a Lost Stories box set which contains The Foe From The Future which was originally devised by Robert Banks Stewart and finds the Doctor and Leela in trouble in a quiet little village in Devon. The Valley Of Death, the second story in the set which originally came from the mind of Philip Hinchcliffe, unfolds around events set in the Amazon Jungle and a lost city of Gold.

These incredibly exciting and, let’s face it, landmark, stories can be purchased from the good people at Big Finish. To find out how to catch up with the fourth Doctor and Leela visit www.bigfinish.com.

    Meredith, I don’t mean to be picky, but Tom Baker reprised his role as the Doctor in audio for BBC Audio’s Hornets’ Nest series some three years ago. He’s done fifteen stories for them which, exciting as his Big Finish debut is, ought not to be ignored.

  2. Paddy says:

    The above is a fair point, but while the Hornet’s Nest series was great (got better as it went on, particularly the last two installments with David Troughton) it was only part-dramatised, with heavy amounts of linking narration. This is Baker’s first full-cast drama. Having heard the opening ten minutes of Mission to Nerva on the BF podcast I can tell you there is quite a difference – the production is amazing.
