Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One.

The Last Voyage was the sixth release in the BBC's exclusive audio range. It was written by Dan Abnett and performed by David Tennant. Released by BBC Audio as a part of their ongoing line of original, single-actor plays, it went on sale on 7 January 2010, a week after Tennant's final televised adventure was first broadcast.

Originally promoted as being the final exclusive-to-audio Tenth Doctor adventure — as, for example, in DWM 417 — it was in fact followed by Tennant's true finalé, AUDIO: Dead Air, in March 2010.

Publisher's summary[]

The TARDIS materialises on board the maiden voyage of a pioneering space cruiser, travelling from Earth to the planet Eternity. The Doctor has just started exploring the vehicle when there is a loud bang, a massive jolt and a flash of light. Soon he discovers that nearly all the passengers and crew have disappeared. Unless The Doctor and flight attendant Sugar MacAuley can take control and steer the ship, they could crash-land -- or stay in space forever!



  • The Doctor hears the unidentified alien race refer to him by his real name.
