Omega was the forty-seventh story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Nev Fountain and featured Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor and Ian Collier as Omega.

It was the first audio story in a rough tetralogy of single-word title stories featuring each Doctor from Big Finish's range; aside from the Eighth Doctor story Zagreus, each features an individual from the TV series. The next story was Davros, followed by Master. It was originally set to feature the Celestial Toymaker instead of Omega.[source needed]

Publisher's summary Edit

A strange telepathic message prompts the Doctor to travel to the Sector of Forgotten Souls, a place where, thousands of years ago, Omega's ship vanished whilst detonating a star.

He's not the only one journeying towards it. Jolly Chronolidays prides itself on giving its tourists an experience of galactic history that is far better than mere time travel.

Its motto is, "We don't go into history, we prefer to bring history to you".

When Omega's ship suddenly materialises in front of their shuttle, and one of their employees goes insane and tries to destroy his hands...

...suddenly it's not just a motto any more.

And Omega — and his madness — is closer than they think.

Time Lords Edit

  • Rassilon was a Prydonian and stole all of Omega's glory for himself.
  • Rassilon used to be nicknamed "Ras" but only Omega remained able to do so.
  • Omega's original name is Peylix.
  • The nickname "Omega" comes from when his old teacher Cardinal Luvis graded one of his essays with an Omega, the lowest mark possible which was the only time to ever be attributed to someone. Peylix explored the possibilities of increasing the Gallifreyan power by exploding a star, providing them enough energy to time travel. Luvis found this concept to be mad and purely idiotic and flunked Peylix. His peers then started calling him "Omega" to humiliate him, and the nickname stuck.
  • Omega ignited the star of Jartus in the Sector of Forgotten Souls where time itself is oldest to get mastery over time.
