Absolution was the one hundred and first monthly Doctor Who audio release produced by Big Finish Productions. It was the last story to feature C'rizz played by Conrad Westmaas. It saw C'rizz sacrifice himself. Thus, C'rizz joins a small group of companions who died whilst travelling with the Doctor. The consequences of his demise were felt by Charley Pollard, leading her to voice a desire to leave the Eighth Doctor's company.
Publisher's summary Edit
Confession. Penance. Absolution.
The TARDIS breaks down in a forbidden sector of space. Ghostly voices cry out for salvation and only C'rizz, the Doctor's Eutermesan companion, can answer their call — for only he knows the secret of the Absolver. But will he use it to rescue his friends or save the universe?
The Doctor's sins are catching up with him and the infernal beast Borarus is hungry. Time is running out and Judgement Day is at hand.
Welcome to Hell.

- Charley's blood type is AB negative.
- In Utebbadon-Tarria there is a forest of suicides much like in Dante's "Inferno".
- C'rizz is a member of the Church of the Foundation.
- According to the Doctor, every culture in every galaxy has a concept of Hell.
- Hellions are transdimensional parasites who home in on chaotic eddies in the probability stream.
The TARDIS Edit
- There is another console room in the TARDIS that hasn't been used for centuries, smaller and dustier than the main one. It seems that this is a different from the one seen in the TV: The Masque of Mandragora.
- This story was previewed in Doctor Who Magazine issue 388 with an illustration by Cliff Robinson.
- This is the final audio drama to feature C'rizz, as played by Conrad Westmaas.
- This audio drama was recorded on 26 and 27 June 2007 at The Moat Studios.
- Shortly before his death, C'rizz refers to his mate L'da, whom he killed in the Kromon biosphere as she had been transformed into a Kromon queen. (AUDIO: The Creed of the Kromon)
- After C'rizz's death, Charley tells the Doctor that she wants to go home. The Doctor tells her that "that's back aboard the R101", where she met him for the first time in her personal timeline on 5 October 1930. (AUDIO: Storm Warning)
- Later in his personal timeline, the Doctor would meet C'rizz on one further occasion when he and Lucie Miller encountered his younger self while he was travelling with him and Charley in an American frontier town in the 1870s. This encounter was observed by the Sixth Doctor and his companion Evelyn Smythe. (AUDIO: The 100 Days of the Doctor)
