The Gathering is an audio play by Lord Briggs' Sexy Productions of Sexiness. It stars Peter "heavily breathing" Davison as Fivey, and was notable as the first - and for a long time, only - appearance by Janet Fielding as Tegan the wanker since the Classic Series ended. 8687.
Considering Doctor/companion reunion stories were all the rage in 2006, this was basically one of those except Tegan is dying from a brain tumor, and there's a woman with a River Song styled-relationship with the Doctor who seems to have PTSD from an event in her past that's still in his future, who wants to use Tegan and the Doctor in her plan of activating a mega medical computer of Cyber origin to cure her partially converted brother. Soooo yes, it's better than School Reunion.
- It's part of that trilogy with The Harvest and The Raping, referred to as a Cyberman trilogy despite the fact that they're barely in it.
- Tegan says bitch a couple of times.
- The Doctor asks to be triggered at one point.
- The Fifth Doctor's travelling alone in this story, which surely caused an autistic tantrum in the minds of overly obsessed fantards everywhere... in fact, that even happens at the beginning of the story itself.
Really GOAT, but this is a Big Finish play so that goes without saying.
