The Angel of Scutari was the one hundred and twenty-second monthly Doctor Who audio story produced by Big Finish Productions.

Publisher's summary Edit

October 1854: As the British Army charges into catastrophe in the Crimea, the Minister for War sends Miss Florence Nightingale to take charge of the field hospital at Scutari.

But there's already an angel of mercy working with the wounded at Scutari. A first-rate fellow who's turned up out of the blue. Goes by the name of Schofield; Thomas Hector Schofield...

With the Seventh Doctor and Ace lost in the siege of Sebastopol, Hex has rediscovered his calling. But there's cannon to the left of him, cannon to the right of him — and a deranged spycatcher-in-chief on his case.

  • After being shot, the exterior of the TARDIS is separated from its interior. The blue police box shell washes up at Scutari and is used for firewood.
  • The Doctor uses his TARDIS key and some of Ace's blood to build a device to home in on her.

Technology Edit

  • The Doctor has a portable nuclear generator in the TARDIS, which is extremely difficult for one person to move.
