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


The Doctor and his friends arrive in Calcutta, India, on the last day of 1926. There they join a quest for The Emerald Tiger, in the lost city of Lanka.



  • Vineeta Rishi was in the 2007 Doctor Who television episode, Smith and Jones.
  • Trevor Cooper was in the 1985 Doctor Who television story, Revelation of the Daleks.
  • Tegan calls Djahn the "Flying Vet" which is an in-joke about Davison. "The Flying Vet", is a book by James Herriot, who wrote All Creatures Great and Small in which Davison starred before he became the Doctor in the 1980s. Some unfair press called him the Wet Vet when he played the Doctor.
  • Nicholas Briggs' young son, Benedict, provides the voice of the infant at the start of this story.[1]
