Sisters of the Flame was the seventh release of the second series of Big Finish Productions' The New Eighth Doctor Adventures audio stories.

Publisher's summary Edit
The richest man in the galaxy has just bought a backwards planet with no obvious mineral wealth in the outer reaches of the universe. An obscure mystical sect has been revived after centuries of neglect. A new race of aliens are hunting for prey. Why?
As the Doctor and Lucie attempt to discover the answer, it becomes clear that someone is attempting to resurrect the past — and they need a Time Lord to help them achieve it.
