The Ultimate Adventure

Playing to the right in Gallifrey TV is The Ultimate Adventure Stage Play. Which some wonderful person recorded in 1989 and has put on youtube. Got to love the fans!

The Ultimate Adventure was a 1989 stage play, written by Terrance Dicks based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who.

The play ran from 23 March and starred Jon Pertwee (who had played the Third Doctor in the series) as the Doctor. On 29 April Pertwee was ill, so his understudy David Banks, who played the Cyber Leader in the series from Earthshock onwards, played the Doctor for the matinee and evening performances. Pertwee continued in the role until 3 June and two days later Colin Baker, who had played the Sixth Doctor, took over the lead until the run ended on 19 August. The play was adjusted accordingly to conform with the Sixth Doctor's persona.
Big Finish Audio is releasing the play as an audio adventure staring Colin Baker in the role
