Big Finish - The Five Companions

This is the Big Finish subscribers bonus release The Five Companions written by Eddie Robson with Peter Davison as the Doctor.

Set during a brief gap in the events of The Five Doctors this reunites the Fifth Doctor with five of his former companions in a battle with Daleks and Sontarans. William Russell, Peter Purves, Jean Marsh, Anneke Wills and Sarah Sutton return to their roles and give able support to Peter Davison.

It's not a long story, or at least it didn't seem so to me, but it is fun. It's difficult to pick between the five companions but I think William Russell perhaps edged it for me, maybe because his character was one of the great things about the original series.

A nice bonus from Big Finish which gets 3.5 out of 5 Probic vents. Next up is the Sixth Doctor in The Fourth Wall.
