This 2004 Big Finish full cast audio release was originally given away to Big Finish subscribers, but is now available for purchase.

The story is a stand-alone one, which features Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor, with Nicola Bryant as Peri. The story is quite unusual for the time it was made in that it features Peri post-Trial of a Time Lord, when she has apparently left the Doctor to marry Yrcanos and live with him. In this story, she is stranded on the planet Refiloe some years after she has last seen the Doctor, and the Doctor meets her again when the Tardis lands on the same planet, and the Doctor is injured.

What the Doctor doesn’t know, but the audience does, is that someone is watching him – two someones – one woman, who appears to be some type of mercenary/warrior, and one other, a male who appears to be in charge of whatever operation the woman is undertaking and which features the ultimate demise of the Doctor. But how this is all related remains a complete mystery for a large part of the story.

This is a great story; Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant are great in their parts. Given that it’s quite early on in history of the Big Finish audio adventure stories, they have settled back well into their tv counterparts, and play them to perfection. Hearing Peri tell of her life after she last saw the Doctor on Thoros-Beta was really sad, and very poignant. The Doctor’s distress at her life since he last saw her is also very affecting. Apart from the Doctor and Peri, there are only four other major parts in the story, so a small cast do a great job in projecting a big story. It’s a shame that The Agent (as he is listed in the credits for this story) has not, to date, reappeared in the Big Finish universe; it’s clear he and the Doctor have unfinished business, and it would be great to have this storyline taken further. This two-part story, sitting at about 75 minutes, is a great Doctor Who story, and is definitely recommended.

"When the Doctor lands on Refiloe, he's not impressed.

"In fact, he doesn't intend to stay for more than just a few minutes.

"But someone has decided that the TARDIS has made her final flight.

"Someone whose future depends on the Doctor's death."

"Her Final Flight", by Julian Shortman, was originally one of Big Finish's subscriber-only freebies, and is therefore only a single CD story, at two standard episodes in length. The Doctor lands on Refiloe and, after falling from a cliff, wakes up to find himself being tended to by Peri, who he had left behind on Thoros Beta in "The Trial of a Time Lord" / "Mindwarp".

As such, the story deals with the emotional consequences of the Doctor's abandonment of his companion, and Peri's quest to return home, with good performances by leads Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant. In many ways, it ties up the loose ends left by "Trial", although to some extent the Doctor's reconciliation with Peri takes second place to his misadventures in the primitive town in which he now finds himself, where the TARDIS has been taken to the temple and hailed as a vessel of the Gods, whilst the Doctor suffers periodic blackouts during which he imagines that he is being tortured.

This short story climaxes as the Dotor is confronted once again with the worst possible fate for his companion, in a manner that echoes the events of Trial. However, the emotional impact of the story is somewhat undermined by the resolution of the story's framing device, and at the end of the day certain matters are left frustratingly unresolved.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 11 Oct. 2007
originally given away free to subscribers to the big finish range of doctor who audios, and then put on sale to everyone else, this is a two part story featuring the sixth doctor. In it, circumstances cause him to be stranded on an alien world, and reunited with old companion peri, many years after they last saw each other.

Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant, who plays peri, are excellent together in this, the older peri being a very appealing character, and the doctor getting to show very well how much she means to him.

There is of course an alien threat to be dealt with. And another one that will cause the doctor to make a hard choice.

There's a big twist to this tale, that you will either guess right away or will hit you by total surprise. So you'll probably enjoy it more if it's the latter. but even so, this has a great cast, a clever script, a well realised alien world, and some very powerful emotional moments. It's a good little tale and well worth getting

An unexpected pleasure 3 Oct. 2009
By Peter Ingemi - Published on Amazon.com
When you are dealing with "Free bonus episodes" the expectations level tend to be lower than normal. I'm pleased to say that Her Final Flight without a question does not fit that mold.

The Doctor traveling alone finds himself reunited with Peri years after her departure and forced to deal with the deadly consequences of their reunion.

Since the episode is after the TV adventures it gives a bit more leeway on what can and can't happen, this along with strong performances by the cast make this one very much worth picking up.

On the minus side clues to the final plot resolution are given much too soon for my taste and the final solution was at least to me rather predictable.

Nevertheless you will not find yourself disappointed by this audio and it will be an excellent addition to your big finish collection.

Pick it up.
