ID[edit]

Plot[edit]

The Doctor arrives in the future at a huge dumping site for old computers. Scavenger ships scour the discarded materials for valuable data: one of the ships is from the borderline illegal Lonway Clinic, which specialises in personality surgery. The Doctor investigates the death of one of the clinic's researchers, and realises that what the clinic is searching for here should perhaps remain lost.

Continuity[edit]

Urgent Calls begins the "Virus Strand" story arc, which spans the three subsequent one-episode stories Urban Myths, The Vanity Box and Mission of the Viyrans.

Notes[edit]

  • Sara Griffiths played Ray in the Seventh Doctor TV story Delta and the Bannermen.
  • There is an interview with Gyles Brandreth at the end of CD 1, where he discusses his meeting each of the Doctors and other topics.
  • Excluding multi-Doctor stories, this is the first Doctor Who main range audio released by Big Finish that does not feature a companion or returning enemy.
