Forty-five is a Big Finish Productions audio drama based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. As the play released at the forty-fifth anniversary of the first episode of Doctor Who, it is made of four one-part stories, by different authors, rather than the usual multi-part serial. All episodes featured the Seventh Doctor as played by Sylvester McCoy, Ace played by Sophie Aldred and Hex played by Philip Olivier.
