Destination: Nerva is an audio drama based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. This audio drama was produced by Big Finish Productions. As with all Doctor Who spin-off media, its relationship to the televised serials is open to interpretation.
Tom Baker played the Fourth Doctor from 1974 to 1981. Although Big Finish Productions has been producing audio dramas with all the other living, Classic Series Doctors since 1999, Tom Baker had declined to participate. Baker finally reprised the role in a series of audio dramas for the BBC in 2009, starting with Hornets' Nest. Destination Nerva is the first in a series of audio dramas produced by Big Finish Productions.
Having wrapped up their adventure with Jago and Litefoot in Victorian London, the Doctor and Leela are alerted to an interstellar distress signal emanating from an English manor house, in the nearby year of 1895. From there, they chase an alien spaceship a millennium into the future, to the newly constructed Space Dock Nerva, orbiting Jupiter.
