Bang-Bang-a-Boom! is a Big Finish Productions audio drama based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. The title is a parody of Lulu's 1969 Eurovision Song Contest winning entry Boom Bang-a-Bang.


On the space station Dark Space 8, the Seventh Doctor and Mel arrive at the hosting of the Intergalactic Song Contest when a series of murders threatens the peace of the galaxy.



  • The Intergalactic Song Contest is a parody of the Eurovision Song Contest while Commentator Logan (who speaks with an Irish accent) is based upon and named after Terry Wogan, who provided commentary for the Eurovision on BBC One every year from 1980 to 2008. Like Wogan, he is seemingly known for his sardonic wit and frequently mentions his wife during broadcasts.
