The Black Hole was the third story of the second series of The Early Adventures, produced by Big Finish Productions. It was written by Simon Guerrier, narrated by Frazer Hines and Deborah Watling and featured the Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon and Victoria Waterfield.

The story is notable in that it offers an alternate account of the Second Doctor's history with regard to The Two Doctors to the Season 6B theory, explaining why the Doctor was working for the Time Lords and why Jamie was aware of their existence. This puts it at odds with the earlier novel World Game, which takes place, and therefore places The Two Doctors, after The War Games.

Publisher's summary Edit

On a research station near a black hole, time keeps standing still. Investigating the phenomenon, the Doctor, Jamie and Victoria discover a power far greater than any of the monsters that have challenged them on their travels... The Doctor's own people.

With the safety of thousands balancing out the need to flee, and a policeman from his home planet working at his side, the Doctor reluctantly finds himself involved in a race against time.

But nothing is ever as simple as it appears. And if you can use the Doctor's compassion against him, you have the makings of a perfect trap...
