Blue Forgotten Planet was the one hundred and twenty-sixth story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Nicholas Briggs and featured Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor and India Fisher as Charlotte Pollard and Mila.
Released in September 2009, it was the final audio story in Big Finish's monthly Doctor Who range to feature Fisher as Charley until 2021's The End of the Beginning. In chronological order, it was also Charley's last story as a companion.
"So, this is the blue planet you've forgotten about. But take another look. You helped us once. I know you can help us again."
Will the mysterious Viyrans really help?
Without you, the human race will die out. And Planet Earth will surely be our tomb.
