The Sirens of Time

Dr Who

The Sirens of Time

Big Finish Audio Drama (1999)



Gallifrey is in a state of crisis, facing destruction at the hands of an overwhelming enemy. And the Doctor is involved in three different incarnations – each caught up in a deadly adventure, scattered across time and space. The web of time is threatened – and someone wants the Doctor dead. The three incarnations of the Doctor must join together to set time back on the right track – but in doing so, will they unleash a still greater threat? The Seventh Doctor is in Episode 1 of this four-part story; the Fifth Doctor is in episode 2; the Sixth Doctor is in episode 3; and all three Doctors are in the final episode.

Initially confusing, this tale is four stories on 2 hours, loosely joined with yet another timey-whimy time travel tale. The first three episodes are just average, but the final provides opportunity for the three incarnations of the doctor; Sylvester McCoy, Peter Davison and Colin Baker some fun interaction, illustrating the differing characteristics of each incarnation of the character. The villain only becomes apparent at the and and hence not as interesting as the doctor(s) (3/5)
