Big Finish Doctor Who audio stories
Summer Winter

Autumn was a 2007 Big Finish Productions full-cast audio short story, featuring the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa. It was notable for being the story which explored Nyssa's first, tentative steps into the world of romantic love. It was further significant for being Big Finish's first foray into Stockbridge, England, a fictional hamlet that had been introduced in Doctor Who Magazine comic strips.

Publisher's summary Edit

References Edit

  • When Nyssa tells Andrew Harper that she is from Traken, he assumes that it is in Ireland.
  • Though she falls in love with him quite uneasily, Nyssa is clearly implied to have had sex with Andrew.
  • The Doctor and Nyssa have met P. G. Wodehouse.

Notes Edit

  • This story is set in the recent past (relative to the publication date of 2007), and involves no science fictional elements other than the Doctor and Nyssa themselves. Thus it is technically a "pure historical" episode, however short the hop back in time is.
  • According to a 20 November 2006 blog post, Paul Cornell wrote this story without the assistance of Mike Maddox.

Continuity Edit
