You Are the Doctor was the first story in the audio anthology, You Are the Doctor and Other Stories, which comprised the two hundred and seventh release in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by John Dorney and featured Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor and Sophie Aldred as Ace.

It took the form of a "choose-your-own-adventure" story.

Notes Edit

  • This story uses the conventions of a "choose-your-own-adventure" story, a device that has previously been used in earnest in the Decide Your Destiny and Make Your Own Adventure/Find Your Fate series. However, unlike with those books, this story makes the deviations based on the listener's choices a part of the narrative through the use of the Resurrectionist, meaning there are no real choices made by the listener, and no alternative sequences of events.
  • John Dorney, the writer, originally planned on using a different villain for this story. However, this "obvious" villain, presumably the Ogrons, were already being used in one of Dorney's stories in a different range.
