Big Finish – Doctor Who: 4th Doctor Adventures – The Pursuit of History / Casualties of Time

Review by Doctor Squee (Head Reviewer & host of Gallifrey Stands podcast)


I have been looking forward to this 2-part adventure! Not only is it always a pleasure to have Tom Baker stepping back into his role as the 4th Doctor, but to have the return of David Warner as Cuthbert and Toby Hadoke as Mr Dorrick is something not to be missed. These characters were originally introduced at the end of 4th Doctor series 2 (The Dalek Contract and The Final Phase) alongside Tom and Mary Tamm’s Romana 1. So it is a little bittersweet when you hear on the extra’s Nicholas Briggs talking about how bringing in Lalla Ward for this series meant that they could continue some of the storylines left open from Tamm’s adventures. As always though the trick of making you feel like it’s the same person no matter which Romana you are dealing with is achieved; something we maybe take for granted sometimes.
