Dead Woman Walking was the fourth story of the tenth season of Big Finish Productions' Short Trips series.

Publisher's summary[]

The Doctor's meddling has taken a tremendous emotional toll on Ace over their many adventures. However, this time, it may just cost her life.

Landing in the middle of a civil war, the Doctor hoped to discreetly meddle and then slip away unnoticed. Instead, he's managed to infect Ace with an organic bomb. A bomb with a most unusual trigger.

If Ace dies, so does the planet.
