Mistfall was the one hundred and ninety-fifth story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Andrew Smith and featured Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor, Sarah Sutton as Nyssa, Janet Fielding as Tegan Jovanka and Mark Strickson as Turlough.

It began a trilogy of the Fifth Doctor's return to E-Space and was a sequel to Full Circle.

Drawn off-course, the TARDIS passes through a CVE into a closed universe – a hugely improbable event with a tragically obvious cause. In order to escape inescapable E-Space, the Doctor, Nyssa, Tegan and Turlough are forced to venture in the wilds of planet Alzarius.
