Rule of the Eminence was the fourth and final story in the audio anthology Dark Eyes 3, produced by Big Finish Productions. It was written by Matt Fitton and featured Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor, Ruth Bradley as Molly O'Sullivan and Nicola Walker as Liv Chenka.

Publisher's summary[]

History tells us that humanity will win the war against the Eminence. That Grand Administrator Walter Vincent will welcome home the sons and daughters of fighting and starvation.

The newscasters of Alliance Update will announce across the Ten Systems that planet Earth is open for business, its air purified and its people victorious. The Eminence will be no more.

This is all a matter of historical fact.

But the Doctor and the Master both know, history can be rewritten.

Every line.

  • This is the only story of Dark Eyes 3 not to feature Sally Armstrong.
  • This is the last story to feature Ruth Bradley playing Molly; in the next Dark Eyes release she is portrayed by Sorcha Cusack.
  • The Doctor had to stop travelling with Molly because when they are together, they threaten the universe. Liv then joins him as a companion.
