Good news for fans of the Fourth Doctor – the 2012 Big Finish adventure Destination: Nerva is to be aired on BBC Radio 4 Extra!
Written by Nicholas Briggs, the adventure stars Tom Baker in his first audio appearance with Big Finish, and is joined by Louise Jameson as Leela. Destination: Nerva is a sort of sequel to Ark in Space, and takes place straight after The Talons of Weng-Chiang.
After saying their goodbyes to Professor Litefoot and Henry Gordon Jago, the Doctor and Leela respond to an alien distress call beamed direct from Victorian England. It is the beginning of a journey that will take them to the newly built Space Dock Nerva… where a long overdue homecoming is expected.
It’s interesting to note that among the guest cast is Tim Treloar, who is currently narrating Third Doctor adventures with Big Finish.
If you want to listen to Destination: Nerva right now, you can order it on CD or as a download from Big Finish. Alternatively, wait a couple of weeks until Saturday May 16th, when the full series of adventures is scheduled on BBC Radio’s “classic drama and comedy” channel from 6pm.
