Thicker Than Water was the seventy-third story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Paul Sutton and featured Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor, Bonnie Langford as Melanie Bush and Maggie Stables as Evelyn Smythe.

A sequel to Arrangements for War, this story is set following Evelyn's first departure from travelling with the Doctor, which is presented in flashbacks in this episode and was previously briefly alluded to in The Juggernauts.

Publisher's summary Edit

Three years after Világ was all but laid waste by the Killorans, the Doctor is back alongside a different companion. And a lot has changed.

But he has to contend with opposition from his daughter, Sofia, who heads a public campaign demanding the destruction of all alien artefacts.

Politics has caused a rift between father and daughter, and as if that weren't enough, Sofia doesn't approve of her new stepmother either. Emotions soon boil over into violence — violence that seems to have gripped the entire city.

Friendships bind people close, but they say that blood is...
