Night's Black Agents was the eleventh story of the fourth series in The Companion Chronicles, produced by Big Finish Productions. It was written by Marty Ross, narrated by Frazer Hines and featured the Sixth Doctor and Jamie McCrimmon.

Publisher's summary[]

Jamie McCrimmon and his new friend the Sixth Doctor are lost on the moors of Scotland, where the legendary Kelpie roams...

They are offered shelter by the Reverend Merodach, the minister of the parish of Lammermoor, and are welcomed to his castle. But strange forces are at work within its walls, and Merodach is not what he appears.

Can the Doctor and Jamie prevent their powerful enemy from taking the TARDIS for himself?
