A Thousand Tiny Wings was the one hundred and thirtieth story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Andy Lane and featured Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor and Tracey Childs as Elizabeth Klein.

Released in January 2010, it featured the return of Childs as Klein, a character whom she had previously played in Colditz in 2001. This story began a series of three audio releases featuring Elizabeth Klein travelling with the Seventh Doctor.

Publisher's summary Edit

1950s Kenya. The Mau Mau Uprising. A disparate group of women lie low in a remote house in the jungle, waiting for a resolution or for rescue. Among these British imperialists is Elizabeth Klein, a refugee from a timeline that no longer exists... thanks to the Doctor.

Reunited, the Doctor and Klein are forced to set aside their differences by terrifying circumstances. People are dying in this remote place. One by one. And there's something out there, in the jungle, accompanied only by the flutter of a thousand tiny wings...
