Publisher's summary Edit

A special audio adaptation of the Doctor Who stage-play from the 1980s.

The Daleks have allied themselves with the Cybermen and a deadly band of mercenaries. The future of Earth depends upon a vital peace conference. And Mrs T knows that only one Time Lord can save the world.

There are epic battles. There are betrayals. There is love, and there even songs.

Take your seat for... Doctor Who – The Ultimate Adventure!

Notes Edit

The Ultimate Adventure Potser

A poster for the Big Finish version of the play.

  • This was an adaptation of the original stage play Doctor Who: The Ultimate Adventure. Colin Baker and David Banks are the only actors from the original play to reprise their roles for the audio version.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 5 and 6 June 2008.
  • Chronologically, this is the earliest story to feature the Daleks and the Cybermen alongside each other. It is not, however, the first story to feature them both — an honour instead held by the television story The Five Doctors (or more accurately the novelisation which was released first). It is also not the earliest story to be produced in which the Daleks and Cybermen appear side by side each other since, as it was released in 2008, it was beaten to that position by the television story Doomsday by two years.
  • Daleks are present in the TARDIS. Once more, The Ultimate Adventure is chronologically the earliest story in which this has happened. From a release standpoint however, it was beaten by the novel War of the Daleks in 1997 and the television story The Parting of the Ways in 2005.
  • This story sees a very rare instance where the Sixth Doctor has a sonic screwdriver in his possession, though it does not explain when or where he obtained another one to replace his predecessor's after it was destroyed in the television story The Visitation.
