The Five Companions was the ninth subscriber-exclusive release from Big Finish.

Publisher's summary Edit

Inside a cluster of fused-together derelict spaceships, four of the Doctor's oldest friends — and one of his newest ones — are lost and confused. They don't know how they got there or what they're meant to be doing — but as the place is infested with Daleks, Sontarans and dinosaurs, their first priority is staying alive.

To their collective relief, the Doctor turns up and has a reasonable idea of what's going on. If the six of them work together, they can escape this place and get home. But, unexpectedly, others may be working together to ensure they all die here...

Culture Edit

  • The Doctor mentions to Polly that he is attempting to get into contact with the Capitol.

Species Edit

  • Steven encountered the Sontarans when one of their scout ships crashed on the Elders' planet several years earlier in his personal timeline. This experience taught him that a Sontaran could be incapacitated by striking their probic vent.
  • A Tyrannosaurus rex is transported to the alternative Death Zone, where it kills several Daleks before it is exterminated.

Technology Edit

Notes Edit

  • This is a special release given away to Big Finish subscribers who have the audio story Army of Death as part of their subscription.
