Time War: Volume One was a full cast audio anthology released in February 2018 by Big Finish Productions.

Publisher's summary[]

The Time Lords and the Daleks have opposed one another across millennia. But now, their conflict tips into an all-out Time War, and nowhere across the universe of spacetime is safe.

Battle plans will be drawn, allies recruited, and innocents caught in the crossfire.

Gallifrey is going to war, and the cosmos will never be the same again.

1.1 Celestial Intervention by David Llewellyn

The Temporal Powers are under threat. It is only a matter of time before the Daleks attack.

Now CIA Coordinator, Romana must protect the interests of Gallifrey, while dealing with demands from President Livia and an increasingly powerful War Council.

As allies are whittled away, the Time Lords are drawn into a conflict they can no longer avoid...

1.2 Soldier Obscura by Tim Foley

Braxiatel has always planned for contingencies. As hostilities escalate, he takes Ace into a deadly region of spacetime – The Obscura – to locate an ancient research station.

But Ace is about to learn more about Irving Braxiatel than anyone should know.

Some soldiers are ready for this fight, but some will not make it through the first round.

1.3 The Devil You Know by Scott Handcock

The Time War has begun in earnest, and Romana must think the unthinkable. For a most dangerous mission, she selects the most dangerous warriorthe Master.

But he will not be alone. Leela accompanies her old enemy as they begin an unusual interrogation.

What does Finnian Valentine know? And can Leela and the Master ever truly be on the same side?

1.4 Desperate Measures by Matt Fitton

The Dalek Emperor attacks a vital Time Lord outpost. Victory would be a devastating blow to Gallifrey.

Romana is caught in the machinations of a President who sees control slipping away. Is it time to bargain with the War Council, or perhaps to parlay with even more dangerous parties?

The Time War has barely begun, and for Gallifrey, desperate times are already here...

  • Scott Handcock, producer of Gallifrey, thought Enemy Lines was the end for the series, as it "had always been flirting around the edges of the Time War without ever addressing it, so [he] struggled to see what [they] could do to feel fresh without tackling the Time War head-on". (VOR 108)
  • Cover artist Lee Binding posted on his Twitter that he designed the covers in the same style as Gallifrey Falls No More, as if they were meant to be paintings hanging next to it.[1]
  • Tom Saunders did some 3D work for trailer of this anthology, including the Dalek Emperor parts.[2]
