|'The Black Hole'
by Simon Guerrier
On a research station near a black hole, time keeps standing still. Investigating the phenomenon, the Doctor, Jamie and Victoria discover a power far greater than any of the monsters that have challenged them on their travels... The Doctor's own people.
With the safety of thousands balancing out the need to flee, and a policeman from his home planet working at his side, the Doctor reluctantly finds himself involved in a race against time.
But nothing is ever as simple as it appears. And if you can use the Doctor's compassion against him, you have the makings of a perfect trapů
Frazer Hines (Jamie McCrimmon / The Doctor), Deborah Watling (Victoria Waterfield), Rufus Hound (Constable Pavo), Janet Dibley (Commander Flail), Anthony Keetch (The Seeth), David Warner (Narrator)

*Featuring the Second Doctor, Jamie and Victoria
*Time-placing: this story leads into the events of 'The Two Doctors', which makes things complicated. It is generally thought that following the events of 'The War Games', the Doctor undertakes work for the Time Lords before he regenerates, which is the case in 'The Two Doctors'. However, this Big Finish story rewrites this idea, meaning that it and 'The Two Doctors' could also be set during Season 5. Given the fact that in 'The Two Doctors' the Doctor and Jamie look older than they were in Season 5, and in this audio they and Victoria sound much older, I'm still placing the two stories after 'The War Games'
*Each part is 45 minutes duration
