The Deep (audio story)

From Tardis Wiki, the free Doctor Who reference

The Deep is a 2010 Big Finish audio short story read by Peter Davison. It features the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa. It is most notable for being the first piece of Doctor Who fiction written by the award-winning author of young adult fiction, Ally Kennen.

Narratively, it is one of the rare stories that dealt with repairing the chameleon circuit.


When Nyssa attempts to fix the chameleon circuit, the TARDIS turns into a whale. Can she and the Doctor recapture it and turn it back into the old TARDIS before it's stuck in the form of a whale forever?




  • Given that the TARDIS' chameleon circuit is operational, this is one of the few Doctor Who stories in any medium in which the TARDIS appears in a form other than that of a police box.
