Notes

Familiar friends and foes revisit the Seventh Doctor in the first of a two-box set series of full-cast audio dramas, released today from Big Finish Productions

The Seventh Doctor begins The Last Day

At the start of the Doctor Who TV Movie in 1996, the Seventh Doctor collected The Master’s mortal remains after he was executed by the Daleks on Skaro.

But what was the situation that led up to those events? Who sent The Doctor, of all people, on that mission? Now, it’s time to find out in a 12-part epic tale, The Seventh Doctor – The Last Day, which will be told over two box sets.

Doctor Who – The Seventh Doctor Adventures: The Last Day Parts One and Two are available to pre-order together in a bundle for just £41 (collector’s edition CD box set + download), or £35 (download only).

There is always injustice to fight. There is always a new danger for the universe. But what if The Doctor found a way to put things right, once and for all? Would it really be so terrible to take a stand? Would the end justify the means? And would his friends agree? The Seventh Doctor’s last day is coming…

With the Seventh Doctor having had so many companions, friends and enemies across various media such as television, the New Adventures books, Doctor Who Magazine and Big Finish – to name but four – there were a plethora of potential characters to feature.

Joining Sylvester McCoy as The Doctor in The Last Day Part One are Sophie Aldred as Ace, Bonnie Langford as Melanie Bush, Lisa Bowerman as Professor Bernice Summerfield, Philip Olivier as Thomas Hector Schofield (aka Hex), Amy Pemberton as Sally Morgan, Maggie O’Neill as Lysandra Aristedes, Edward Peel as Kane, Geoffrey Beevers as the Master, Dan Starkey as the Sontarans, Richenda Carey as Mother, Chase Masterson as Vienna, and Stuart Milligan as Garundel.

Co-writer Matt Fitton said: “The setting of it all, without giving anything away, gave us the premise of The Last Day and allowed us to play with other versions of reality and universes. So, we’ve got a version of Ace who can interact with characters in a different way to how we’d normally expect her to. It brings alternative dynamics to them all.

“Each of the companions brings their own strengths, and there are varied reasons as to why The Doctor chose to travel with them. That all comes to the fore here when they become part of the team that’s assembled during the course of the story.”

Co-writer Guy Adams added: “Once we had decided this was going to be the big send off for the Seventh Doctor, the obvious thing to do was look at the cross-section if you cut through the trunk of the Seventh Doctor stories. We worked our way through all the best bits and tried to find what and who might be achievable, and who would add something to it as a character, because that’s always a consideration.

“It was quite easy to include a shopping list across two whole box sets, as this is, but I hope we were quite fastidious in our conversations to try and make sure that everyone has their space.”
