"A strange telepathic message prompts the Doctor to travel to the 'Sector of Forgotten Souls', a place where, thousands of years ago, Omega's ship vanished whilst detonating a star.

"He's not the only one journeying towards it. 'Jolly Chronolidays' prides itself on giving its tourists an experience of galactic history that is far better than mere time travel.

"Its motto is 'We don't go into history, we prefer to bring history to you'.

"When Omega's ship suddenly materialises in front of their shuttle, and one of their employees goes insane and tries to destroy his hands...

"...suddenly it's not just a motto anymore.

"And Omega - and his madness - is closer than they think."

"Omega", by Nev Fountain, is the first of Big Finish's "Villains" trilogy released in 2003 to mark the 40th anniversary of "Doctor Who" and the run-up to Big Finish's 50th regular release, "Zagreus". Like the other "Villains" stories, "Davros" and "Master", "Omega" is a companionless story. Although the story follows directly on from the televised story "Arc of Infinity", the absence of Nyssa and Tegan is never really explained.

Ian Collier of "Arc of Infinity" returns to play the voice of Omega in this curious four part story. The story pits Peter Davison's Doctor against the ghost of his recent nemesis Omega, who has apparently reformed, fallen in love and now just wants a return ticket for he and his bride-to-be to Omega's own antimatter universe: a journey that the Doctor intends to help him accomplish. Unfortunately, in the midst of all of this, the employees of 'Jolly Chronolidays' are beginning to go mad and people are starting to die.

Omega is the first of four specials that Big Finish released to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of everyones favourite time lord. An inspired idea, having each drama focus on a villain from the series. At time of review i have not heard the next three. I approached Omega with characteristic trepidation, knowing full well the possibility of the spoiling the series continuity by ruining Omega as a character. In The Three Doctors he was a raving lunatic, in Arc of Infinity a troubled loony with a little heart. In Omega, well, without spoiling anything, they don't ruin his image.
"Jolly Chronolidays" delivers elderly tourists to areas of great historic interest throughout the universe and their latest venture is to where Omega first used the stellar manipulator to create the black hole from which all time travel originally derives, the "sector of forgotten souls." The Doc ( is on board, as well as a couple of actors ( and a bus load of tourists. I had predicted what was to happen next, (surely Omega will reappear and try to destroy the universe) but spectacularly Nev Fountain flips everything on its head and delivers a spellbinding story gripping from start to finish. The layers of psionic energy in the sector means nobody's ever quite sure who every one else is and the looming shadow of Omega himself is never far from the Doctor's thoughts. Just what is going on? Why is the actor playing Vandokeirion threatening to cut off his hands and calling himself "the conscience of the universe?" Why is the stewardess Sentia so driven to entering the black hole? IS Omega actually present or is it just madness...on everyone's part?
I was very impressed with this story.

Format: Audio CD
'The Arc of Infinity', The Doctor's 1983 trip to Amsterdam, has to rank as one of the shows all-time lemons. What idiot would either want, least of all attempt, to create a sequel to such a disaster? Nev Fountain, that's who!

'Omega' came as the first of three homages to past villains in the run up to the 40th anniversary behemoth that was 'Zagreus' and was the most surprising as well as the most entertaining. It is also downright barking and features one of the most jaw-dropping end-of-episode cliffhangers ever. The last part is admittedly far too long (it is in truth a five part story, not a four parter), over-indulging its task of expanding on the past. Yet, as a couple of hours of audio entertainment for anyone saturated in the Who universe, 'Omega' is hard to beat. There is a great support cast, the music and sound design are top notch and Peter Davison is at his very best. It is, moreover, often extremely funny.

Though I've only given 'Omega' four stars, it is nonetheless one of a select group of stories from Big Finish's monthly Doctor Who range that I would not willingly be without. (See also: 'Phantasmagoria', 'The Church and the Crown', 'The Kingmaker', 'Year of the Pig', 'Magic Mousetrap', the six stories of 'Season 2002', 'Zagreus', the four stories of 'Season 2004', 'Other Lives' and 'Memory Lane'.) But be warned: if you're not at least partially aware of the two Omega stories on TV, you will miss a lot of the what the story's about. Great though 'Omega' is, it is unshamedly fan-centric.

A fascinating audio adventure that features a Time Lord legend!

This is the first story of a multi-Doctor 'villains' trilogy to celebrate 40 years of 'Doctor Who'. It stars Peter Davison as the Doctor with Ian Collier as Omega. The story also guest stars Caroline Munro and Hugo Myatt. It is a four-part adventure by Nev Fountain.

`Omega' is a fascinating and enjoyable adventure where the Fifth Doctor meets the fallen, tragic Time Lord legend again. Nev Fountain delivers an intriguing and light-hearted tale about Omega by making him not the villain he seems to be and how others view him in the universe he now dislikes.

I've had the pleasure of having my CD cover of 'Omega' signed by lovely Caroline Munro at a sci-fi fair in Fareham before Christmas in December 2014!

Omega appeared in two 'Doctor Who' stories - 'The Three Doctors' and 'Arc of Infinity'. He is a Time Lord legend who tragically gave his people of Gallifrey the power to time travel by ending up in a black hole in a universe of anti-matter. This is the third adventure to feature this Time Lord legend.

This story takes place after 'Arc of Infinity' and is the Fifth Doctor's second encounter with Omega. The Doctor joins a sight-seeing tour by Jolly Chronolidays into the 'Sector of Forgotten Souls' where Omega was lost. It turns out Omega might still be alive when the Doctor finds him there.

If you're wondering where Nyssa and Tegan are, they're in Amsterdam spending time and enjoying a holiday whilst the Doctor's on an adventure.
