Doctor Who: The Legacy of Time [Big Finish]

It was July 1999 when Big Finish released Sirens of Time, their first officially-licensed Doctor Who audio production.  Doctor #’s 5-7 (Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy) were all part of the adventure, and so began a new monthly line of adventures based on everyone’s favorite Time Lord.
