The Great War was the first full cast audio story in the Dark Eyes audio anthology released in 2012 by Big Finish Productions. It featured Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor and Ruth Bradley as Molly O'Sullivan. This story was the first story to advance the Eighth Doctor's story forwards following 2011's To the Death. This story's cover and the box set's cover also features a new look for the Eighth Doctor whose appearance on the covers of audios and in their in-universe description has not majorly diverted from his appearance in the 1996 television movie.

Publisher's summary Edit

Voluntary Aid Detachment nursing assistant Molly O'Sullivan spends her days facing the horrors of the Great War. Little does she know that a man from another world has arrived, looking for her.

But what are the strange sounds coming from the battlefield at night? Where is the glowing gas coming from? And is everyone who they claim to be?

Time travel Edit

  • The supposed glowing gases are in actuality time winds which are leaking through to World War I-era France from the Time Vortex.

Notes Edit

  • This story features a complete new look for the Eighth Doctor, being the first Big Finish adventure to change the Doctor's style from the TV series. There are elements of the Ninth Doctor in the Eighth Doctor's new look, notably the leather jacket and the revamped sonic screwdriver.
  • Although the Doctor is described as having his characteristic long hair throughout the story, he is depicted as having short hair on the CD cover.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 1, 18, 19 and 20 June 2012 at The Moat Studios.
