Doctor Who: The Newbies Guide

Eye of the Scorpion

This is the 24th release in Big Finish's main series of Doctor Who audios.

Where does this fit?

This happens in Season 21 between Planet of Fire and The Caves of Androzani .


The fifth Doctor is much younger-looking than his other incarnations. He wears old-style cricketing clothes and a sprig of celery. He is much more vulnerable and innocent than his other incarnations and more like an older brother to his companions.


Perpugilliam (Peri) Brown is an American botany student from the 1980s. She met the fifth Doctor in Planet of Fire when she was on holiday in Lanzerote with her stepfather Howard, and helped him to defeat the Master.
