The Doomsday Contract is a new full-cast audio adventure from Big Finish. The story was initially developed in 1979 by John Lloyd, who later became a successful TV comedy producer. It’s been  adapted for audio by Nev Fountain, and stars Tom Baker as the Doctor and Lalla Ward as Romana.

Earth – a small, insignificant planet. Entirely devoid of intelligent life. At least that’s according to the legal documents. The Doctor, Romana and K9 find themselves at the centre of a most unusual trial.

An intergalactic corporation wants to bulldoze the planet for a development project. Only a previous court’s preservation document is standing in their way. The Doctor has been summoned as an expert witness. If he can prove Earth contains intelligent life, the whole world will be saved.

The Doomsday Contract is available now from priced £14.99 and £12.99 to download. Thanks to Big Finish we have FIVE CD copies to give away. If you’d like the opportunity to win one, answer the following question correctly:
