The Fourth Doctor Boxset is a collection of two audio dramas by Big Finish Productions based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who.

The Foe from the Future[edit]

by Robert Banks Stewart (adapted by John Dorney)


The TARDIS arrives in Devon, in the year 1977. But history is unravelling. At the centre of it is a seemingly haunted manor owned by a mysterious man named Jalnik.


The Valley of Death[edit]

by Philip Hinchcliffe (adapted by Jonathan Morris)


In 1870, Professor Cornelius Perkins mounted an expedition to the Amazon rainforest and was never heard from again. A century later, his great-grandson flies to South America looking for answers. Joining him is the Doctor, on a mission from UNIT, investigating rumours of a crashed UFO.



  • Some elements of The Foe from the Future influenced Robert Holmes' The Talons of Weng-Chiang.[1]
