Times have changed. A choice was made and the universe diverged. And now all of history is at war.

One man stands at the centre of it all. But whose side is he on? Is he with the angels? Or the demons? And does anyone even know which is which?

He was a Doctor once, but now he is Doctor no more. He is the Warrior. The Doctor of War.

1.1 Dust Devil by John Dorney
The TARDIS crew are on the run, pursued by an unstoppable force. But who is hunting them? And why? Will they find the answers on Aridius? Or just more questions?

1.2 Aftershocks by Lou Morgan
The ripples are spreading out. The Warrior is on trial. Or is he? No-one’s willing to tell him his crime so how can he know if he’s guilty? And who is trying him anyway?

1.3 The Difference Office by James Kettle
The Warrior is President of the Time Lords… and suffering from visions. Is he the right man to combat an invasion? Because there’s someone out there in the wilderness of Gallifrey. Someone with the Warrior’s face. And he’s heading for the Capitol.

Recorded on: 9 September 2021 and other dates TBA
Recorded at: The Soundhouse and recorded remotely


Doctor of War promises to be one of the most exciting things to happen to Doctor Who - be that on TV, or in audio - for quite some time. This first set invites a repeat listen, not just because of how much there is to try and take in due to the severely fractured nature of time and reality, but also to bask in an absolute gem, providing clear evidence that the creative juices at Big Finish show no signs of drying up anytime soon.

Set The Tape

Doctor of War: Genesis may be a set that I have been intentionally vague in discussing since it does things very differently and relies on twists on the Doctor Who formula, it comes highly recommended for brilliant performances. The only reservations are that it’s all setup and some small implications may try and connect it to the universe proper which may not turn out, but it is a brilliant use of the Unbound format and contender for one of the best releases of the year. 9/10.

Doctor of War: Genesis is a triumphant return to form for the Unbound range. It's an opportunity to let writers and actors alike showcase a new version of not just the Doctor Who universe but Colin Baker as the Doctor with non-linear storytelling and all the production values that have made Big Finish work stand the test of time. With a second set, Destiny, set to conclude the Doctor of War run this autumn, now's the time to discover the power of a simple question: "What if?"
