Since the show was first cancelled, experiments were made in creating Doctor Who programs for the radio. Only a few were made at first, with long gaps in between. With the invention of the internet, and internet radio, more were made (some with flash/powerpoint-style animation). Finally, Big Finish Productions was able to get the license and contracts with the original cast actors to begin creating a regular series of episodes, 12 stories per year. This is here: So, since lots of people know the TV show, I thought I'd talk about the various Audio plays. Slip-Back. 6 15-minute episodes. The 6th Doctor and Peri arrive on a space ship that has gone awry. The captain is a recluse who can incubate any disease, then infects crewmen with it as a disciplinary action (a gross variation on the Darth Vader technique). There's a ravenous indestructible monster in the cargo hold that broke loose. The ship's computer is having some sort of identity crisis. The experimental drive sends the ship plunging back in time. The Doctor eventually realizes that the ship exploding is the source of the Big Bang. The computer is delighted to be the first artificial intelligence to commit suicide. Valantine Dyle is excellent as the captain, but the story is mostly a bunch of rubbish that makes little sense thrown together like an infant at dinner-time eating peas. Paradise of Death: five 30-minute episodes 3rd Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, and The Brigadier. Um, it's there, but not really memorable. Except for the side note that during the first hiatus, Jon Pertwee declared at a convention that he was once again The Current Doctor.
