Big Finish The Fifth Doctor Adventures – Forty Volume 2

The Fifth Doctor turns Forty!

We’re smelling a flower, watching a sunset, eating a well-prepared meal and releasing two brand-new volumes of full-cast audio adventures to celebrate forty years of Peter Davison’s Fifth Doctor.

Comprising two anniversary box sets released in April and September 2022 respectively, Doctor Who: The Fifth Doctor Adventures – Forty celebrates four decades since the Fifth Doctor made his first regular appearance in Doctor Who.

The dynamic dramas are plucked from various points in the Fifth Doctor’s timeline, as he adventures alongside beloved companions Tegan (Janet Fielding), Turlough (Mark Strickson), Nyssa (Sarah Sutton), Adric (Matthew Waterhouse) and Kamelion (Jon Culshaw) across the episodes.

Doctor Who: The Fifth Doctor Adventures – Forty Volume 1 and Doctor Who: The Fifth Doctor Adventures – Forty Volume 2 are now available to pre-order individually as a collector’s edition CD at £19.99 or on download at £16.99, exclusively at www.bigfinish.com.

Expect to hear fearsome adversaries, the Cybermen, Ice Warriors and Autons in the trio of TARDIS tales across the two volumes.

Volume 1

  • Secrets of Telos by Matt Fitton
  • God of War by Sarah Grochala

Volume 2

  • The Auton Infinity by Tim Foley

Opening story, Secrets of Telos, is a direct sequel to the Doctor Who television episode Tomb of the Cybermen (1967).

Producer David Richardson said: “It’s always fascinated me that Tomb of the Cybermen isn’t a story that definitively ends. There’s a loose strand of story left floating at the end of episode four – and that strand of story launches us straight into Forty, a lavish celebration of forty years of the Fifth Doctor. What strange force is pulling the Doctor forwards through his incarnation? The mystery will be solved but along the way enjoy spending time with Tegan, Nyssa, Adric, Turlough and Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart. As birthday parties go, this is going to be a spectacular one!”

Doctor Who: The Fifth Doctor Adventures – Forty Volume 1 and Doctor Who: The Fifth Doctor Adventures – Forty Volume 2 are now available to pre-order individually as a collector’s edition CD at £19.99 or on download from the Big Finish Website at £16.99.

Big Finish listeners can save money by ordering both volumes of Forty together in a bundle for £38 on CD or £33 on download.

Please note that Big Finish is currently operating a digital-first release schedule. The mail-out of collector’s edition CDs may be delayed due to factors beyond our control, but all purchases of this release unlock a digital copy that can be immediately downloaded or played on the Big Finish app from the release date.

    Can’t say no to more Auton stories. Ice warriors and cybermen are also great as well. Secrets of telos = a sequel to tomb of the cybermen and all about that one surviving cybermat trying to conquer the universe
