The Doctor’s disavowed incarnation wages war through time in three new adventures. He finds a new friend in street smart cyborg Case, with the Daleks getting ever closer…
The Doctor is no more. In his place, a warrior, finally joining the Time War between the Daleks and Gallifrey.
But how far will he go to end the conflict? What lines will he cross? How much of himself will he sacrifice?
The War Doctor is beginning to find out who he is…
2.1 Consequences by Timothy X Atack
The War Doctor and Veklin crash on a ravaged planet. On the fringes of the Time War, this world has its own battles raging. Elsewhere, a survivor works out how she came to be here.
But these newcomers are harbingers of something terrible, following in their wake…
2.2 Destroyer by Andrew Smith
Trapped on a world that worships war, the War Doctor finds himself fulfilling an ancient prophecy – could he be the Warbringer of legend?
His new ally Case is testing her abilities, too. And both will be called on to fight when the Daleks come…
2.3 Saviour by Jonathan Morris
The truth of how events on Tharius were set in motion is revealed. On a mission to destroy a Dalek Harvester vessel, the War Doctor discovers a new breed of Dalek.
Whatever action he takes next, we have seen the consequences – and they are devastating for everyone.

Saviour by Jonathan Morris
Jonathon Carley said: “Now it’s finally out there, I’ve been pretty overwhelmed by how positively Forged in Fire has been received and how enthusiastically the audience has embraced the first steps of this new journey. The bar is set pretty high, but we’ve got another incredible set of stories that build upon what we’ve established and bring something bold and new too.
“We’re embarking on an intense three-part epic in the thick of the Time War where difficult choices have to be made, which will really push the War Doctor and his allies to their limits.”
Producer David Richardson added: “I was absolutely delighted by the amazing outpouring of love from listeners for the first War Doctor Begins. We all worked so hard on it, and Jonathon – in Louise’s wonderful guiding hands – did such a fantastic job.
“But that was just the beginning of The War Doctor Begins – next up is Warbringer, a huge three-hour story about a doomed world and its inevitable fate as a casualty of the Time War. The scripts are dark, tense and never let up. The recordings were riveting to listen to, so I can’t wait to receive the edits!”
This box set also features the return of Adèle Anderson (Fascinating Aïda, Doctor Who: Time War) as Commander Tamasan, Beth Chalmers (The Paternoster Gang, Callan) as agent Commander Veklin, Angela Bruce (Press Gang, Red Dwarf) as Andarta, War Leader of the Incipients, Stephen Frost (Vanity Fair, The Young Ones) as Rondig, captain of a space salvage ship and Nicholas Briggs as the voice of the Daleks.
