Wirrn Isle is a Big Finish Productions audio drama based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who.[1][2]


The Earth is slowly being repopulated in the year 16127, by the descendants of the Nerva Beacon. But the Wirrn have also come down from the Beacon.



  • This story is a sequel to the 1975 Fourth Doctor television story The Ark in Space, which introduced the Wirrn. It takes place about forty years later.

Critical reception[edit]

Doctor Who Magazine reviewer Matt Michael called the story a "very strong conclusion" to the three-story miniseason.[3]
