Faith Stealer was the sixty-first story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Graham Duff and featured Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor, India Fisher as Charlotte Pollard, Conrad Westmaas as C'rizz and Stephen Perring as The Kro'ka.

It was the first story of the second tetralogy of Eighth Doctor stories set in the Divergent Universe. This story is Duff's only contribution to Doctor Who fiction as a writer.

Publisher's summary[]

When the Doctor, Charley and C'rizz find their journey through the Interzone interrupted by a nightmarish vision, they are surprised to find the Kro'ka offering the perfect solution...

The Multihaven — a vast array of religions and faiths housed in one harmonious community — appears to offer the perfect sanctuary in which to convalesce. But under the guidance of the charismatic Laan Carder, one religion seems to be gathering disciples at an alarming rate...

With the Doctor and Charley catching glimpses of an old friend and C'rizz on the receiving end of some unorthodox religious practices, their belief, hope and faith are about to be tested to the limit.

It's time to see the light.
