Terror Firma was the seventy-second story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Joseph Lidster and featured Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor, India Fisher as Charlotte Pollard, Conrad Westmaas as C'rizz and Terry Molloy as Davros.

Continuing from the cliffhanger at the end of The Next Life, this story is the first Eighth Doctor story of 2005 and the first story to be set in the normal universe after eight previous stories set in the Divergent Universe. Furthermore, this is the first story to depict the Eighth Doctor's travels prior to the events of Big Finish's first Eighth Doctor audio drama Storm Warning and goes some way to explain why the Doctor was travelling alone in that story.

Publisher's summary[]

"Welcome back, Doctor..."

Centuries ago, on the war-torn planet Skaro, a great scientist created the most evil creatures the Universe would ever know... Daleks.

It was at their genesis that the scientist Davros first met and was defeated by the Doctor.

Over the years and throughout space, they fought.

It was a fight that ended with the Doctor's destruction of Skaro and the Daleks. Except...

Davros survived. Alone. In the dark. With only thoughts of revenge keeping him alive.

The Doctor is back. Davros is waiting.

Their destiny is now.
