The Doctor is going to embark on a string of experiences with a new company in the hottest Doctor Who’s spin-off from Big Finish.
Tom Baker’s incarnation is going to be connected by Naomi Cross,” an impetuous UNIT secretary”, to get a new set of full-cast sound dramas.
Inspired by Eleanor Crooks, Naomi is called”keen to make her stripes; very top of this course, trained at karate, and also quite tired of pen-pushing at a London office”.
In Large End’s 13th collection of Fourth Doctor experiences, Naomi takes about a mission”babysit” Surgeon-Lieutenant Harry Sullivan in an investigative visit to Calcutta along with Naomi shortly experiences the thrills and spills she has been hunting… courtesy of an odd guy who wears a very long scarf and carries out a sonic screwdriver.

Mixed Baker and Crooks, Chris Naylor will perform Harry Sullivan, the Fourth Doctor companion initially played on tv from the late Ian Marter.
This brand new TARDIS trio will appear against a classic danger at the opening narrative of their new boxset, Storm of the Sea Devils by David K Barnes, that will reintroduce the warrior warrior reptiles seen on TV at 1972.
“Naomi is very similar to me,” said Crooks. “She is very feisty and states exactly what she would like to convey. Along with her weakness, even if you may, is that she is rather headstrong. So it is great that she’s Harry there to tear out her a bit”
Nicholas Briggs, Big End’s Creative Director, added:”Naomi Cross includes a very intriguing route into the TARDIS, through the exact conservative Harry Sullivan. Virtually all her responses to space-time experiences are the complete reverse of that which we’ve come to expect out of a Doctor Who companion. And Ellie frees superbly lively life to the job.”
Although Naomi’s official introduction will not be published from Big End before 2024(!) , Old Producer David Richardson has theorized that lovers”can fulfill her in sudden places”, including that the personality has a”enormous arc which will play in the forthcoming years” — interesting!
