Old Whovian who grew up on Pertwee, Tom Baker, and Davison, and was devasted when the show was canceled during my first year of college. I've seen all of classic Who, apart from some of the lost serials of the One and Two era.

I'm delighted that Who has been revived for modern generations. However, I'm so enthralled by Big Finish audios giving me more fantastic stories with MY Doctors and MY companions that I may never catch up on all the new series.

A Kiss to Remember by helluin [Reviews - 0]
On Terminus, Nyssa was the first companion to kiss the Doctor goodbye. What if something had happened between them in private to explain that kiss and his haunted look? Slow burn, exploring their partnership of mutual respect which, as the Doctor said in Circular Time, is "nothing that you could so easily define."

Before and After by helluin [Reviews - 2]
After the Big Finish "Five Companions" Audio, the Doctor has to see his friends back to their proper places and times. Saying goodbye to one of them is more pleasant than expected, and more painful than the Doctor lets on.

Coronation of the High Hierophant: Unrevealed Truths by helluin [Reviews - 3]
Five and Nyssa are swept up in the grandeur of the Celestial Basilica, a literal castle in the air. Court dances, Neo-Baroque pageantry and advanced gravitational engineering provide an epic backdrop for murder and intrigue. Misunderstanding her ruse, the Doctor leaves Nyssa to enjoy her new life—only to learn she's in mortal danger, and he can't save her without altering history!

Eye of Orion by helluin [Reviews - 1]
The Doctor takes Nyssa to his favorite vacation spot. And for once, absolutely nothing horrible happens. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Master's Thesis by helluin [Reviews - 6]
When Nyssa tries to return home with the cure to a deadly plague, the TARDIS overshoots and slips back into her past, the Doctor's future. Worse, the Master is already there, taking a sinister interest in her family. Hemmed in by potential time paradoxes, there's only one person to whom Nyssa can turn for help: her best friend Tegan. (Big Finish's older Nyssa arc, but you don't need to have heard those audios to follow this.)

Physician, Heal Thyself by helluin [Reviews - 0]
Sacrificing himself to a swamp god was just one more of the Fifth Doctor's spectacularly bad ideas to save the universe, or at least protect a village. Nyssa had good reason to fear he wouldn't come out of this one unscathed.

Pool Therapy by helluin [Reviews - 2]
A bout of Dalek brainwashing left Nyssa mentally scarred after the events of "The Elite," so the Doctor and Tegan rented a luxury villa outside Brisbane for her to recuperate. That part's canon (audio, anyway). This part... isn't.

This Bird Has Flown by helluin [Reviews - 2]
Space tourists, scientists, old friends: the Doctor has not had a rapport with a companion like this since Romana left. (A series of "day in the life" vignettes between Five and Nyssa that roughly parallel their later Big Finish adventures.)

After a trying day dealing with prats wearing pasta on their foreheads (Mawdryn Undead), our Totally Just Friends duo goes exploring deep in the TARDIS to clear their minds and talk nerdy at one another. Smut ensues.

Victorian Indiscretions by helluin [Reviews - 0]
Nyssa of Traken: an alien, a scientist, and a companion with an unfortunate knack for falling out of the TARDIS. In the audio "The Haunting of Thomas Brewster," the Doctor had to live in Victorian London for a whole year before he caught up with her again. Suppose their happy reunion was... happier and more prolonged than in canon?
