The Lady of Mercia was the one hundred and seventy-third story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Paul Magrs and featured Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor, Sarah Sutton as Nyssa, Janet Fielding as Tegan Jovanka and Mark Strickson as Turlough.

This story was set in 1983, making it contemporaneous with the TV stories of this era.

Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

The TARDIS brings the Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Nyssa to the University of Frodsham, close to where the warrior queen Æthelfrid fought a desperate and bloody rearguard action against the savage Danes. Over a thousand years later, in 1983, battle is still being raged, with student activists taking on savage funding cuts... and disrupting a conference about Æthelfrid convened by history professor John Bleak.

Meanwhile, over in the Physics Department, Dr Philippa Stone is working night and day on a top-secret project — but can her theoretical time machine really be the solution to the university's problems?

Present and past are about to collide — and the results, as the TARDIS crew is about to discover, will be far from academic!
