If you’re a fan of the Third Doctor (1970-74) as played by Jon Pertwee, why not try The Prisoner of Peladon? Read by the son of Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton), David Troughton, the Doctor’s legacy is still felt on Peladon.
"Tonight, I am going to tell you the story of the Prisoner of Peladon, and of the time when a friend and protector returned to our planet. A man called… the Doctor."
The planet Peladon has joined the Galactic Federation, and has undergone a painful period of change. Still eager to embrace alien culture, King Peladon has welcomed refugee Ice Warriors to his world - innocent creatures that are fleeing the New Martian Republic.
But, as an old friend returns to the capitol, there is murder in the refugee camps. Could the truth lie in an ancient legend?
Or try the Companion Chronicles’ trilogy of stories for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, starting at The Beginning by Marc Platt (who wrote Doctor Who TV story Ghost Light, and many Big Finish releases). This first part stars Carole Ann Ford who plays Susan, the granddaughter of the Doctor, and Terry Molloy (the voice of Davros) as Quadrigger Stoyn.
Another popular story is The Mahogany Murderers, starring Christopher Benjamin as Henry Gordon Jago, and the late Trevor Baxter (Professor George Litefoot, continuing their adventures from the Doctor Who tv story The Talons of Weng Chiang and continuing their adventures in Jago and Litefoot.
Professor George Litefoot: the eminent pathologist who advises the police in some of their grisliest cases. Henry Gordon Jago: the master of ceremonies at the Alhambra Theatre. These are two very different men from contrasting strata in society who became firm friends and collaborators after their adventure with the Doctor and Leela battling the evil Weng-Chiang.
Some years later, Jago and Litefoot have defeated dangerous denizens of the daemonic darkness together. They have stood side by side against threats to the British Empire. But when a body is found on the banks of the River Thames and Litefoot's post mortum reveals that it is actually a highly detailed wooden mannequin, their most dangerous adventure begins.
Dr Tulp has masterminded a deadly scheme, Jack Yeovil and his murderous gang plan to live forever, and only Jago and Litefoot can stop them...
Or there’s the Companion Chronicles- The Specials, with Nicholas Courtney, Anneke Wills, Katy Manning and Mark Strickson, The First Doctor Volume 1 with Carole Ann Ford, Maureen O'Brien, and Peter Purves or a saga popular amoung the Big Finish staff, The Rocket Men with William Russell and Return of the Rocket Men with Peter Purves.
