And as quickly as we began, it was over! Dragonfire marks a significant turn in the Sylvester McCoy run as the Seventh Doctor. It most importantly introduces us to his mainstay companion in Ace played by Sophie Aldrea. Ace is an important character that will go on to enrich the idea and writing of a companion in Doctor Who which would echo all the way through to the new series.

Seeing as this is the end, Tony and I also reflect on this season as a whole, with its highs and lows and pick our favorite story of the four.

Tony Schaab from is the Companion for Doctor Who: The Sylvester McCoy Era.

The Brandon Peters Show will return Friday (8/5) with special guest Mike Vanderbilt to close with a song.
