Centuries after the First Doctor tangled with the fearsome Zarbi (on TV back in 1965), we return to the Web Planet with the Fifth Doctor.
On the third day of Big Finishmas, Big Finish gave to me… a Fifth Doctor tale with a Sixties twist, as we return to the planet Vortis.
"It's an ancient name. From the dark time..."
It's been hundreds of years and several regenerations since the Doctor last visited the insect world of Vortis. Much has changed during his absence, but not necessarily for the better.
This now green and pleasant land isn't the paradise it first appears. Something malevolent is living out in The Desolation... And the Doctor and Nyssa must solve the mystery before the City of Light is overrun.
Starring Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor and Sarah Sutton as Nyssa, this story takes place between the television adventures, Time-Flight and Arc of Infinity.
Keep an eye on the Big Finish website and our social media, as we’ll be adding more special offers every day for the 12 days of Big Finishmas. Tomorrow's offer is something both spooky and Christmassy
