Destination Nerva (Credit: Big Finish)The first season of Big Finish's Fourth Doctor adventures, is coming to BBC Radio 4 extra later this month.

The season starts with Destination Nerva, first released in January 2012, which reunites Tom Baker with his former companion Louise Jameson, in a story written and directed by Nicholas Briggs, and which sees the Doctor return to the location first seen in the 1975 story The Ark in Space

After saying their goodbyes to Professor Litefoot and Henry Gordon Jago, the Doctor and Leela respond to an alien distress call beamed direct from Victorian England. It is the beginning of a journey that will take them to the newly built Space Dock Nerva… where a long overdue homecoming is expected.

A homecoming that could bring about the end of the human race.
The series continues with The Renaissance Man, The Wrath Of The Iceni, Energy Of The Daleks, Trail Of The White Worm and The Oseidon Adventure.

Tom Baker previously revived the character of the Fourth Doctor in a series of stories for BBC Audiobooks, which were broadcast on Radio 4 extra in 2011. Since 2012 he has started in four seasons of Fourth Doctor stories for Big Finish, with a fifth Season planned for release next year.

The series begins on Radio 4 extra on Saturday 16th May at 6pm. Radio 4 extra can be heard globally on the BBC iPlayer.
