Big Finish 273 Doctor Who Colony of Fear

Available to order from

Doctor Who: Colony of Fear by Roland Moore

Sometimes the TARDIS takes the Doctor to where he needs to go…

Answering a distress call from the out-world of Triketha, the Doctor and Constance Clarke discover human colonists battling against an onslaught of giant, malevolent insects. The insects’ sting induces a coma, and it is only a matter of time before all the colonists succumb.

The Doctor is curious as to the origins of the insects, which appeared from nowhere, and offers his assistance to the colony’s governor. But is this the Doctor’s first visit to Triketha, or has he been here before? The Doctor must confront a past that he has no memory of and take responsibility for the consequences of his actions.

Producer/ Director John Ainsworth said: “Roland Moore’s script combines many of the classic elements that have always made for great Doctor Who adventures; a group of disparate and desperate people, trapped together in isolation, fighting an alien menace.

“On top of this Roland introduces an element which asks difficult questions about the Doctor’s actions and his responsibility for how they impact on people’s lives”.

    Funny that everyone comments on the cover, rather than the synopsis.

      Oh good! Would hate for something to have happened to Flip. I own but haven’t listened to “The Lovecraft Invasion”

      Flip would of had to have moved on before the Doctor meets up with Mel (again ).

      Eventually both Flip and Constance will leave the Tardis so that the 6th doctor can start travelling with Mel

    Sometimes the simple covers are the most intriguing
