No More Lies was the fifth story in the first series of the Eighth Doctor Adventures, produced by Big Finish Productions. It was written by Paul Sutton and featured Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor and Sheridan Smith as Lucie Miller.
Because Blood of the Daleks was released in two-parts, it was the sixth release of the series. It was co-produced with BBC 7. This story featured Vortisaurs, a species that had been introduced in the first series of Big Finish's Eighth Doctor audio stories and had last appeared in Minuet in Hell.

But they're not the only uninvited guests — ferocious alien warriors riding pterodactyl-like Vortisaurs are about to make their entrance!
