Tom Baker is back!

Posted by: Dr. Geek

Yesterday, Big Finish announced that Tom Baker, the 4th Doctor, will be starting his Big Finish audio adventures next year.

This is fantastic news for fans of Doctor Who. For several years now, Doctors 5-8 have had a chance to expand their adventures, and especially in the case of the 6th Doctor, the Big Finish audios have gone a long way to rehabilitate the past regenerations. While not every adventure is perfect, by far these adventures are just as good if not better than the modern television show. Now finally the 4th Doctor will get this expert treatment.

Big Finish has several Doctor Who ranges. There is the monthly range, The Lost Stories, and The 8th Doctor Adventures. Starting next year, though this will change. The separate 8th Doctor adventures is ending, and the 8th Doctor will join Doctors 5-7 in the monthly range. The 4th Doctor will get his own separate Adventures as well as a box set of the Doctor Who Lost Stories.

At the moment it has been announced that the companions for these adventures will be Romana I and Leela. Here is hoping that if things go well, eventually Romana II and K-9 might show up.

Favorite Big Finish Doctor Who Adventure?

Posted by: Dr. Geek

So how many of our readers also enjoy the Doctor Who audio adventures from Big Finish?
I have been a big fan since a friend gave me a subscription to the main monthly Doctor Who Range as a birthday present. I was so hooked I have made sure to renew the subscription ever since. I believe I have gone off about Big Finish before, but for the new visitor to this site, the reason I like the product so much is because it is as advertised, Classic Doctors in New Adventures.

The style of story telling has evolved since the first few adventures but what they have settled on recently is, to my mind, a perfect balance between the classic series and the new series. The plots are at times just as confusing as the original series but the pacing has picked up to meet the needs of a modern audience.

I have listened to all the main range adventures, all the special mini adventures, such as the Maltese Penguin, and all the 8th Doctor Adventures. Truly I am hard pressed to find a favorite. I guess I would say I liked the R101 story with The 8th Doctor and Charlie, and surprisingly I have really enjoyed the Sixth Doctor adventures since that incarnation was allowed to mellow out a bit. Colin Baker has really made the Big Finish medium his own.

So what was your favorite adventure? Why of all them was that the one?
