Absolution was the one hundred and first story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Scott Alan Woodard and featured Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor, India Fisher as Charlotte Pollard and Conrad Westmaas as C'rizz.

It was Westmaas' final story in his role and saw C'rizz sacrifice himself; to this end, C'rizz joins a small group of companions who died whilst travelling with the Doctor. The consequences of his demise were felt by Charley, leading her to voice a desire to leave the Eighth Doctor's company.

Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

Confession. Penance. Absolution.

The TARDIS breaks down in a forbidden sector of space. Ghostly voices cry out for salvation and only C'rizz, the Doctor's Eutermesan companion, can answer their call — for only he knows the secret of the Absolver. But will he use it to rescue his friends or save the universe?

The Doctor's sins are catching up with him and the infernal beast Borarus is hungry. Time is running out and Judgement Day is at hand.

Welcome to Hell.

Continuity[edit | edit source]

  • Shortly before his death, C'rizz refers to his mate L'da, whom he killed in the Kromon biosphere as she had been transformed into a Kromon queen. (AUDIO: The Creed of the Kromon)
  • After C'rizz's death, Charley tells the Doctor that she wants to go home. The Doctor tells her that home is "back aboard the R101", where she met him for the first time in her personal timeline on 5 October 1930. (AUDIO: Storm Warning)
  • Later in his personal timeline, the Doctor would meet C'rizz on one further occasion when he and Lucie Miller encountered his younger self while he was travelling with him and Charley in an American frontier town in the 1870s. This encounter was observed by the Sixth Doctor and his companion Evelyn Smythe. (AUDIO: The 100 Days of the Doctor)
