Sympathy for the Devil is a Big Finish Productions audio drama based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. The Doctor Who Unbound dramas pose a series of "What if...?" questions.


What if... the Doctor had not been UNIT's scientific advisor?

The Doctor arrives on Earth for his exile, not in the 1970s but in 1997, on the eve of Hong Kong's handover to the Chinese government. He finds a world that has faced some three decades of alien invasions and other incidents without him to help, and old friends and enemies bitterly transformed.

It is revealed that under the alias Ke Le, The Master defected to China and used a machine with alien parasites (as in The Mind of Evil) to brainwash political prisoners into the zombie-like Ke Le Division soldiers.


Other parts played by members of the cast.
