For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.

2024 marks forty years since Colin Baker’s first appearance as the Sixth Doctor. Big Finish’s celebration of this anniversary began in March with The Quin Dilemma, and next up is an expansive six-part story, told across a three-disc box set. 

The Trials of a Time Lord pairs Ol’ Sixie with both of his original television series companions, as he and Mel (Bonnie Langford) follow a distress call which leads to a reunion with Peri (Nicola Bryant). But there are dangers ahead for the time travellers, not least the Cyber Leader (David Banks, also reprising his role from the 1980s era of the TV series). 

Doctor Who – The Sixth Doctor Adventures: The Trials of a Time Lord is available to pre-order now for just £22.99 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) or £18.99 (download only). The collector’s edition CD box set is strictly limited to 1500 copies and will not be repressed.   

The Sixth Doctor's fortieth anniversary celebrations continue, courtesy of LudoSphere Incorporated, with the greatest adventure ever streamed… 

Responding to a distress call from an old friend, the Doctor and Mel find themselves in ‘Cyberia’, a prison camp run by an even older foe. But this time, the Cyber Leader’s machinations are just the tip of one very sinister iceberg, one that will test the Doctor to his very limit, and beyond…  

We hope you’re hiding behind the sofa, because ‘The Trials of a Time Lord’ are about to begin! 

The Trials of a Time Lord is one epic story scripted by three writers: Parts One and Two are by Rochana Patel, Parts Three and Four by Katharine Armitage, and Parts Five and Six by Stewart Pringle

Producer Jonathan S Powell said: “The Trials of a Time Lord is the ultimate celebration of all things Sixth Doctor: an epic three-hour fight for survival against foes old and new, with both of Sixie’s television companions Peri and Mel brought along for the ride. 

“It felt important when planning this anniversary special to capture the spirit of the Classic Series, but also to make something bold and expansive that speaks to the world we live in today. So while Trials will treat you to a host of familiar themes and faces, it’s also full of surprises, catapulting our hero into the far future to face a uniquely 21st century crisis...  

“The title is obviously a play on Colin’s final story just as The Quin Dilemma was a play on his first, but Trials takes its lead from Season 22 just as much as 23. And there isn't a court scene in sight! The scripts themselves have been beautifully written by the dream team of Rochana Patel, Katharine Armitage and Stewart Pringle.” 

The Trials of a Time Lord is the second of 2024’s Sixth Doctor Adventures box sets, after March’s The Quin Dilemma. Together, these sets form a celebration of the Sixth Doctor’s fortieth anniversary. Both can be pre-ordered together in a bundle for just £44 (collector’s edition CD box set + download) or £36 (download only). 

All the above prices include the special pre-order discount and are subject to change after general release. 

Please note that Big Finish is currently operating a digital-first release schedule. The mail-out of collector’s edition CDs may be delayed due to factors beyond our control, but all purchases of this release unlock a digital copy that can be immediately downloaded or played on the Big Finish app from the release date.
