Army of Death was the one hundred and fifty-fifth story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Jason Arnopp and featured Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor and Julie Cox as Mary Shelley.

Until 2021, this was the last Eighth Doctor story to be featured in the Main Range. The Eighth Doctor continued to appear in other Big Finish ranges, including his own dedicated sagas, and finally returned alongside Charley Pollard in the Main Range's final release, The End of the Beginning.

Publishers summary[edit | edit source]

The TARDIS brings the Doctor and Mary Shelley to the continent of Zelonia, on the frontier world Draxine — where, many moons ago, the twin citystates of Garrak and Stronghaven bore testament to mankind's colonial spirit.

That was before the sinister death cult of Garrak's President Harmon took hold — and Garrak annihilated itself, utterly, in an apocalyptic explosion. Before the bones of Garrak's dead came back to life, and its skeletal citizens began marching, marching, marching on Stronghaven itself.

But what do they want, this army of death? And can anything stop them? In search of answers, the Doctor and Mary must journey into the dead heart of a dead city to face a terrifying adversary, whose ambitions transcend the stuff of life itself.
