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

You are cordially invited to Argentia, the galaxy’s most exclusive tax haven, to attend the funeral of mining magnate Carlo Mazzini. The memorial service will be followed by music, light refreshments, and murder!

Carlo’s heirs have come to say their final goodbyes (and find out how much they’ve inherited) but when a masked killer begins picking them off one by one, Argentia goes into lock-down, closed off behind its own temporal displacement field.

Can the Doctor, Nyssa, Tegan and Adric apprehend the murderer before Argentia – and everyone on board - is forever cut off from the rest of the Universe?

Recorded on: 27-28 July 2017
Recorded at: Moat Studios


It’s all highly entertaining, and highly recommended. 5/5


It finds the perfect balance of plot, characterisation, mystery and fun. If you enjoy the lighter Davison episodes like Black Orchid, then you’ll love Serpent in the Silver Mask. If you’re not a fan of lighter stories, this tremendously fun adventure is still worth a listen for Sam West playing an entire family at once. 10/10

Blogtor Who

When you have a whole TARDIS team at your disposal, it only makes sense to do a Scooby-Doo style murder mystery, complete with a culprit 'under the mask' reveal to finish.

The Host Productions

I did enjoy this episode, as much as I did the Fifth Doctor’s series on television. In fact, if you wanted a best representation of the Fifth Doctor’s tenure for the most part on audio, Serpent in the Silver Mask is the best.

Indie Mac User

Another classic film inspires a terrific Doctor Who audio tale. 9/10

Sci-Fi Bulletin

The whole thing is tremendous fun and the producers are to be applauded for taking a risk. In less assured hands this could easily have ended up as an embarrassing farce. Serpent is, however, a triumph.

Doctor Who Magazine

The TARDIS crew are on fine form here, not one of them sound a day older than they did thirty-six years ago – there must be something in the Argentian waters.


Serpent in the Silver Mask is a delightful little murder mystery, with some intriguing sci-fi twists, black humour and plenty of drama for the Doctor and his companions to get their teeth into. Samuel West is terrific.

The Digital Fix

(David) Llewellyn has crafted an exemplary script with a central mystery that genuinely surprised me.

Doctor Who Online

If you have yet to try the Big Finish main range then this may well be a good introduction to it. This is a fun, rollicking tale that will keep you guessing until the final reveal. Well worth a listen.

Glam Adelaide

It’s a joy, this story. It’s the kind of story you want to finish, and then loop straight back to the beginning to listen to again.
