The Eighth Doctor Meets His Successor in the Final War Doctor Begins Set from Big Finish

10 years on from his regeneration, the Eighth Doctor, aka Paul McGann, meets his successor, the War Doctor, for a new boxset from Big Finish.

The audio company has released details and cover art (above) for the final set in The War Doctor Begins series, Enemy Mine. It brings to a close the story of Case (Ajjaz Awad), the Berserker Class cyborg Dalek/human hybrid fighting the Time War. But will salvation come with a familiar face?

A decade on from The Night of the Doctor, the Eighth Doctor and the War Doctor (played here by Jonathon Carley) appear together in the same episode. Here’s the synopsis:

The Doctor is no more. A warrior has joined the Time War between the Daleks and Gallifrey. But how far will he go? What lines will he cross? How much of himself will he sacrifice?

The Hybrid’s Choice by Ajjaz Awad-Ibrahim

The War Doctor believes Case is dead. But her true fate may be worse – embracing her Dalek nature, recruited to the enemy’s cause.

But serving her new masters is not easy. The Dalek Time Strategist knows that Case’s inner self is in conflict, and seeks a way to seal her fate forever.

Fear Nothing by Mark Wright

The War Doctor’s search for Case is diverted by Commodore Tamasan, summoning him against his will to a remote TARDIS drydock facility at the very edge of the War. Tamasan has a dangerous proposition, but what is her true agenda?

Case has been unleashed by the Daleks to eliminate a key Time Lord asset, an asset who could change the course of the Time War. With nothing left to lose, Case has nothing left to fear…

Exit Strategy by Matt Fitton

Case is with the Daleks – but the Emperor is yet to be convinced of her effectiveness as a weapon. The Dalek Time Strategist will not give up and takes Case to a secret facility for readjustment.

The War Doctor will not give up on Case either. He hopes she can still be rescued. But he is not the man he was – and he may not be the man to save her…
