The Doctor’s seventh life is given the spotlight in the latest release from Big Finish and AudioGo in Destiny of the Doctor: Shockwave.
The Seventh Doctor was one of the most enigmatic incarnations of our favourite Time Lord and it’s the turn of Sophie Aldred, former companion 80’s Ace, to narrate a story that best represents her particular era of Doctor Who.
In the far future, the inhabitants of Tarsus Six face a desperate struggle to evacuate their world before their sun, Tarsus Ultra, collapses into a cataclysmic spatial anomaly.
When the Doctor navigates the TARDIS to a space station orbiting Tarsus Six, Ace assumes that he intends offer their assistance. But it soon becomes clear that the Doctor has an agenda of his own.
With the TARDIS immobilised, Ace realises that their own lives are as much in danger as those of the fleeing inhabitants. The race is on to escape the destruction of Tarsus Six and the devastating shockwave that will follow, reaching out and destroying everything in its wake.
Expect twists and turns, a darker version of the Doctor and a very probably chance for a cameo from the Eleventh Doctor in this story written by James Swallow and co-starring Ian Brooker.
