Big Finish 8th Doctor Doom Coalition 3

Available to order from

3.1 Absent Friends by John Dorney

Earth. The late 20th century. Across the world, the mobile phone is gaining popularity as more and more people decide to join the digital age. But for the residents of a sleepy English town sitting in the shade of a new transmission mast, that ubiquity has a troubling cost.

When the TARDIS veers off-course, the Doctor and his companions find themselves in the middle of a mystery. Sometimes the past comes back to haunt you. And sometimes the future does as well.

3.2 The Eighth Piece by Matt Fitton

15th Century Prague: in the castle dungeons, a prisoner raves about the end of the world. Outside, Liv Chenka seeks out the workshop of a strange Clockmaker to see what he is creating.

England, 1538: Lord Thomas Cromwell finds his duties interrupted by otherworldly forces – clockwork soldiers, an unusual nun, and a mysterious scholar calling himself ‘the Doctor’. Perhaps the truth can be extracted in the torture chamber of London’s Bloody Tower?

Rome, 2016: Helen Sinclair has an appointment with an enigmatic Professor, whose greatest work is almost complete. Only the Eighth Piece is missing…

3.3 The Doomsday Chronometer by Matt Fitton

While River Song takes Helen on an archaeological expedition like no other, the Doctor finds himself enlisted by an alien Queen to save her people.

Trapped and alone, Liv stares death in the face as she meets the enemy who’s been dogging the TARDIS travellers’ footsteps throughout Earth’s history.

The Doomsday Chronometer has been protected for five centuries: secret cults and societies jealously guarding its mystery. But what is their real purpose? The Doctor is about to discover the truth…

3.4. The Crucible of Souls by John Dorney

The date has been set.

The trap has been sprung.

A life has been taken and a maniac is on the loose.

With the TARDIS crew separated and in terrible trouble, will today be the day the bad guys win?

    I confess that I have loved the Doom Coalition saga as a whole but I do think that The Eleven and Caleera need to be in the last two box set heavily because the saga is coming down to the final phases.

    I do wish they had left River out of this one. She’s a great character and, for all I know, this will probably be a great story, but every time Big Finish pair her with a pre-10th Doctor you know they are going to have to contrive some way of him not remembering it. And with her also appearing with the 6th and 7th next year…

      From what happened at the end of dc 2 it was inevitable that river was going to be part of the arc in some form

    Why does every Big Finish boxset cover these days have cogs and fire? Would be nice to see something a little different

      think your wrong as the unit sets don’t have fire and cogs the classic doctors new monsters don’t have cogs and fire the diary of river song don’t have cogs and fire its only the doom coalition series and maybe the war doctor ones that do.
