Kiss of Death was the one hundred and forty-seventh story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Stephen Cole and featured Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor, Sarah Sutton as Nyssa, Janet Fielding as Tegan Jovanka and Mark Strickson as Turlough.

Released in May 2011, it was the second story in a series of three stories featuring the Fifth Doctor along with Tegan, Turlough and an older Nyssa who had re-joined them in 2010's previous series of three audio stories. This story notably features more information on Turlough's past and background, more so than in his departure story Planet of Fire.

Publisher's summary[]

The TARDIS travellers take a break on the beach world of Vektris. Hot sun, cold drinks and all the time in the worlds. What could possibly go wrong?

A kidnapping, a spaceship heist and a desperate chase to a distant galaxy later, Turlough finds himself in a strange winter palace... along with a face from his past. The Doctor, Tegan and Nyssa, meanwhile, fight to escape its frozen catacombs, guarded over by a vast and deadly alien Morass.

But what connects Turlough to the ancient treasure hidden somewhere in the palace? And how far will he go to acquire it?

  • The Doctor says he is rather good at 4-Dimensional chess.
  • Tegan asks if Turlough's family inherited the planet of Enid Blyton.
  • To hide that the Doctor and Nyssa survived the shuttle crash from Rennol, Hoss and Kanch, Tegan tells Turlough that they were killed and that they will "never see their native Earth again."
