Doctor Who: Big Finish's Other Doctor

As the latest TV series takes a break between now and Christmas, Big Finish continues to break new ground with its range of audio releases.

UNIT: Dominion stars Sylvester McCoy, who played the seventh Doctor (1987-9 and 1996), and Alex Macqueen as a future incarnation of the Time Lord.  This is by no means the first time Big Finish has given us a taste of future or alternative incarnations of the Doctor. Its 'Unbound' range of audio stories uses new and reimagined plotlines, with distinguished actors such as Geoffrey Bayldon and David Warner playing the Doctor.
 
As the title indicates, it also features UNIT, the Earth-based scientific/military organisation last seen on TV in The Power of Three.
