On the planet Cray, it’s game time.
The Gora and the Lineen are set to face off in the grudge match to end all grudge matches. The players are limbering up, the commentators are preparing, the fans are daubing themselves in their team’s colours. The arena is set, and the kick-off is approaching.
When the Doctor and Nyssa arrive, however, they find that Naxy is a sport that anyone can play – whether they want to or not. Cray’s entire future depends on the match’s outcome, but the time travellers soon realise that it is anything but just a game.

- The Game was the sixty-sixth monthly Doctor Who audio story produced by Big Finish Productions. Released in February 2005, it featured Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor and Sarah Sutton as Nyssa. William Russell also appeared, playing a different character than that of companion Ian Chesterton.
- Cray has recently been twinned with Earth, a status which causes much embarrassment to Earth due to Cray’s poor reputation and ongoing civil war.
- The planet Galtry is on the other side of Cray’s galaxy and uses coin currency.
