Out Now: The Fourth Doctor Adventures – The Legacy of Death

The fifth (!) series of Big Finish’s Fourth Doctor Adventures ploughs on with this month’s release: Legacy of Death!

The fourth release of this series (meaning we’re at the halfway mark already), Legacy of Death continues the events of last month’s The Paradox Planet – with a war on the planet Aoris reaching fever pitch when both sides acquire time travel… Here’s what to expect:

The Doctor, Romana and K9 have found themselves trapped in a temporal war. On Aoris, the past battles the future – and the future fights back!

With both sides of the war now capable of time travel, the conflict is about to enter a deadly stage. As the pieces of history lock into place, there is little the Doctor can do.

With more Time Tanks moving into combat, the endgame is approaching. The people of Aoris risk extinction at their own hand.

Can even the Doctor save the same planet twice in the same day?

Written by Jonathan Morris, Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor is once again accompanied by the second Romana (Lalla Ward) and K9 (John Leeson).

And they’re joined by a few familiar fac– uh, voices: Emma Campbell-Jones (The Night of the Doctor) playing Shola; Tom Chadbon (City of Death) as Embery; and Simon Rouse (Broadchurch) as Drang. The audio adventure also stars Paul Panting (Fyrax), Laura Rees (Tyrus), Bryan Pilkington (Lostar), and Jane Slavin (Medea).

Directed by Ken Bentley, The Legacy of Death is out now, exclusively from Big Finish: £10.99 for a good ol’ CD, and just £8.99 for minimalists who prefer downloads.
