Her Final Flight was the second Doctor Who bonus story released by Big Finish Productions. It was written by Julian Shortman and featured Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor and Nicola Bryant as Peri Brown.

Publisher's summary[]

When the Doctor lands on Refiloe, he's not impressed.

In fact, he doesn't intend to stay for more than just a few minutes.

But someone has decided that the TARDIS has made her final flight.

Someone whose future depends on the Doctor's death.


The Doctor arrives on Refiloe and the TARDIS is on the edge of a cliff. The Doctor steps out of the TARDIS and falls from the cliff. He wakes many days later in a hut where he is being cared for by Peri. The TARDIS has been taken by the locals and they believe it heals them. It is in fact the energy that has been released when the TARDIS malfunctions.
