The Crimes of Thomas Brewster is a Big Finish Productions audio drama based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra from 28 May - 4 June 2016.[1]


In modern-day London, Detective Inspector Patricia Menzies is investigating a strange new mob boss known as the Doctor. Meanwhile, the real Doctor is being chased by giant robot mosquitoes and Evelyn Smythe is taking the tube to an alien world.



  • Brewster, a Victorian era urchin, stole the TARDIS from the Fifth Doctor in The Haunting of Thomas Brewster. After reuniting, they briefly travelled together, until Brewster chose to stay in modern-day England.
  • Brewster's time machine was built under the instructions of a gaseous alien pretending to be his mother. This was also in The Haunting of Thomas Brewster, his introduction story.
  • Menzies previously met the Sixth Doctor in The Condemned and The Raincloud Man. However, from his perspective, those events take place after this story, while travelling with Charley Pollard.
  • Flip reunites with the Sixth Doctor and travels with him in the first 2012 releases, starting with The Curse of Davros.
