Tom Baker stars as the Fourth Doctor in fifteen full-cast audio dramas written by Paul Magrs, plus bonus features exclusive to this edition.

Serpent Crest: The Doctor acquires a Skishtari egg, whose powers are both wondrous and deadly. When the village of Hexford comes under attack, Mrs Wibbsey and Mike discover that two Doctors aren’t necessarily better than one…

    I think it needs to be more clearly stated that these are not new dramas, but a repackaging (with new bonus features) of a trilogy of audio drama arcs released in the 2000s and early 2010s before Tom Baker joined Big Finish. It’s great to see them being reissued in one set in the post-AudioGO era, but they’re being treated as brand-new audios on a number of websites, when they are not. Hopefully the missing episodes audio soundtrack sets will come back into circulation too.

      Not really as these, when they first came out we’re £7 per story,with no bonus features. So it’s quite a reasonable price now.
