Memories of a Tyrant was the two hundred and fifty third story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Roland Moore and featured Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor and Nicola Bryant as Peri.

The assembled representatives of two opposing factions, each with their own agenda, anxiously wait for the truth to be unlocked from Moro's mind. But when a memory does eventually surface, everyone is surprised to learn that it is of Peri...
