Whispers of Terror was the third story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Justin Richards and featured Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor and Nicola Bryant as Peri Brown.

Publisher's summary Edit

The Doctor and Peri find themselves in the Museum of Aural Antiquities, where every sound is stored for posterity — from the speeches of Visteen Krane to security service wire taps and interrogation tapes. But they also find an intruder, mysteriously changed recordings, and a dead body.

Before long the Doctor realises that there is more going on than a simple break-in or murder. How can he defeat a creature that is made of pure sound?

  • The production code 6Z/A puts it between the television stories Revelation of the Daleks (production code 6Z) and The Trial of a Time Lord (production codes starting from 7A).
  • This story was originally released on cassette and CD. Later the cassette version was replaced by a digital download. On 1 August 2013, Big Finish stopped repressing the CDs.[1] Only the download version remains available.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 17 and 18 July 1999 at the Nu Groove Studios, London.
  • Oddly, this story doesn't use either the Peter Howell or Dominic Glynn theme tunes associated with the Sixth Doctor's era, but rather the second rendition of the Delia Derbyshire theme tune used from 1967-1980.
  • The characters' names come from Justin Richards's Mission: Impossible episode guide.[2]
  • This is the first main range release to not feature the Fifth Doctor.
  • Working titles for the story included The Sound of Fear and Sound Judgement.[2]
