The Worlds of Doctor Who

This box set of four linked stories was released in September 2014 to celebrate fifteen years of Doctor Who audio stories from Big Finish. They were directed by Ken Bentley and Lisa Bowerman.

Mind Games by Justin Richards

In Victorian England, Henry Gordon Jago and Professor Litefoot investigate worrying events on the streets of London – which seem to be linked to the New Regency Theatre’s resident act, the mesmerist Mr Rees…

The Reesinger Process by Justin Richards

London, 1964, and the repercussions of Jago and Litefoot’s adventure are dealt with by Sir Toby Kinsella and his crack team of specialists at Counter-Measures. What is the Reesinger Process – and who is behind it?

The Screaming Skull by Jonathan Morris

Disgraced soldiers Ruth Matheson and Charlie Sato are called back into action by Captain Mike Yates, when the UNIT Vault is mysteriously locked down by a deadly force. Together they must infiltrate the Vault and get those trapped out alive. But what enemy are they facing?

Second Sight by Nick Wallace and Justin Richards

The actions of Mr Rees have alerted the Time Lords of Gallifrey, and Romana has assigned her best warrior. Independently, the Sixth Doctor has arrived on Earth. A power from the dawn of the Universe is about to be unleashed once more…

Rather than doing a multi-Doctor series, which may have seemed a bit much after last year’s The Light at the End, Big Finish decided on a serial linking four of their spin-off series: Jago and Litefoot, Counter Measures, UNIT and Gallifrey.

Four groups of heroes fight the same enemy in different time zones.

And it is a triumph. These are four very good stories that flow from one to the next; and watch out for the cliffhangers, they’ll get you every time.

I think that The Screaming Skull is my favourite of the quartet.

This is a special release that can be highly recommended.
