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

The Doctor was dead, to begin with. Killed alongside his beloved Jo Grant in an explosion in the UNIT labs. But Time Lords are notoriously hard to kill.

Because with UNIT under siege, the Brigadier is rescued by two familiar faces... the Doctor he first encountered, fighting the Yeti, and Jamie McCrimmon. With yet one more waiting in the wings.

They are all pawns in a deadly game of chess played by a being more powerful than any they’ve ever encountered before. And when you battle Death himself... can anyone even win?

Adapted from the original treatment by Bob Baker and Dave Martin for what later became the TV episode The Three Doctors.

Producer David O’Mahony said: “After Baker and Martin submitted the idea for Deathworld in 1972, the story had many challenges and went through multiple rounds of re-writes and changes to characters, locations and actors, to the point that The Three Doctors was now completely different to the story first conceived.

“John Dorney and script editor Simon Guerrier wanted to go back to the original concept and explore what that idea could have been. It’s in keeping with early ’70s films such as Sinbad with its mythical monsters, high stakes adventure, and rollercoaster storylines.”

“With the contribution of Stephen Noonan, Michael Troughton and Tim Treloar as our first three Doctors, and Frazer Hines, Katy Manning, and the brilliant Brigadier played by Jon Culshaw, we have a cast worthy of an anniversary adventure.”

Deathworld is the epitome of a Lost Story – taking a great idea and being able to fulfil it without the time and budget constraints of when it was pitched for television.”
