The Fifth Doctor’s 1001 Nights

Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton in Doctor Who: 1001 NightsWe’re all very excited by Big Finish’s offerings over the next few months but none seem as rich and as varied as the Fifth Doctor adventure 1001 Nights of which they have just revealed the cover artwork for you to drape a napkin over your lap and dribble over.

Following the house style which has become the norm over the last few year, 1001 Nights will include four episodic tales for the Doctor and Nyssa to go through that forms part of a bigger and more epic narrative for you to enjoy.

Written by Emma Beeby, Gordon Rennie, Jonathan Barnes and Catherine Harvey, the story unfolds with (and we’re quoting here) Nyssa being forced to tell a series of stories “in order to keep the Doctor alive…”

Directed by Big Finish legend Barnaby Edwards and featuring an impressive group of guest stars including Alexander Siddig (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Primeval), Nadim Sawalha (Syriana) and Malcolm Tierney (Terror of the Vervoids) this is truly a must have.

These special releases from Big Finish have now become a crucial and wonderful part of Big Finish’s end of year line up and always offer some rich and interesting stories.

You’re best off pre ordering your cop straight away and to do so, you can visit Big Finish’s website at to find out more details.

You can pre order 1001 Nights on CD for £14.99 or via download for £12.99 as of now.

    Great stuff, but I wonder if it’s a bit close in concept to Paul Magrs Aladdin Time from last years Serpent Crest sequence?
