Animal is a Big Finish Productions audio drama based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who.

Plot[edit]

The Doctor and UNIT investigate a science laboratory at Margrave University, 2001.

Cast[edit]

Continuity[edit]

  • In the previous story, Crime of the Century, the Doctor encountered defensive government robots built by Margrave University in the 1980s.
  • UNIT officer Brigadier Bambera previously appeared with the Seventh Doctor and Ace in the 1989 story Battlefield.

Critical reception[edit]

Matt Michael reviewed the play favourably for Doctor Who Magazine. Paul Simpson of Sci-Fi Bulletin was more restrained, calling it a "throwback" to the late 1980s. Both the reviewers noted the inclusion of Cartmelisms, particularly animal rights, although Michael found that this was handled more subtly than might have been expected.[1][2]
