Tom Baker is to reprise the fourth Doctor Who in a new collection of Radio 4 audio adventures that will be a part of their BBC Radio 4 Extra audio dramas.

This new six part series is produced by the fantastic people at Big Finish audio, who have worked a lot with Tom Baker in recent years on numerous new adventures for the iconic fourth doctor.

Featuring a full voice cast, the first episode is titled ‘Destination: Nerva’, and sees the Doctor and Leela (played by Tenko‘s Louise Jameson) investigating an alien distress call that appears to be coming from Victorian England.

Their journey through time and space takes them to the newly built Space Dock Nerva, and sets in motion a homecoming that could put an end to the human race.

Nerva served as a location in the 1975 Doctor Who television episode ‘Ark in Space’, which inspired writer and director Nicholas Briggs to explore the setting further.

The Beeb has also teased a few other adventures in the series, which include a TARDIS trip to a museum of everything, a possible encounter with Boudica and a visit to London that takes place during a future energy crisis.

The series is said to conclude with “a showdown with some old enemies” – could we perhaps be hearing the infamous cry of “Exterminate!” ringing out across the airwaves?

    I’ve marked my calendar. This was apparently the first series Baker did with Big Finish.
