For a while now, I’ve been posting reactions to big “meaty” arcs such as The Eighth Doctor Adventures, Dark Eyes, Doom Coalition and The Collected War Doctor. Some of the stories I plan to listen to in the near future, though, are either one-off adventures or three story arcs. I thought it would be easier on the indexer (Hi, Bob!) if I started one “catch-all” thread and maintain the index in the initial post myself. I invite others to contribute to this discussion as well, and it doesn’t have to be strictly Doctor Who, either; anything from Big Finish will qualify. I’m going to start in a couple of days) with…

One thing Big Finish excels at is taking things from the original series that don’t quite make sense and expounding upon them, explaining in the process why they do make sense. They do so not only without contradicting the original story but enhancing it. For example…

The Time Lords’ reason behind the Doctor’s mission to prevent the Daleks from coming into being (apparently without regard to the Web of Time) in “Genesis of the Daleks” is explained in “Ascension” (Gallifrey 6.3).

The reason behind Romana’s regeneration in “Destiny of the Daleks” is explained in “Lies” (Gallifrey 2.1).

The reason behind the Sixth Doctor’s regeneration into the Seventh in “Time and the Rani” is explained in “The Last Adventure.”

There is a real sense of continuity between the original series and the audios, much more than exists between the original series and the new.

The First Doctor (voiced by Peter Purves) and the Second Doctor (voiced by Frazer Hines) meet for the first time in the next set of Early Adventures, “contrasting the fun and frolics of the Troughton years with the darker days of the late Hartnell era,” but what I’m really excited about is “The Legacy of Time” (celebrating 20 years of Big Finish, due later this month) which features six Doctors and a multiplicity of companions from all eras. Notable pairings include: the Fifth Doctor and Jenny, River song and Bernice Summerfield, the Fourth Doctor, Romana and Leela…

Oh, just listen to the preview.

A while ago I said that not every companion could support a solo series of her own. Rose Tyler has one. Charley Pollard has two. The next will be...

(These stories will be slotted in after "Silence in the Library.")

“Remember when the First and Second Doctors met in an exciting adventure with the Daleks to mark Doctor Who’s fifth anniversary? What do you mean, ‘No’?! Well, that’s the thing about time travel, you see. These things happen, but not necessarily in the right order…”

That’s all I had to read about the upcoming “Daughter of the Gods” to know I wanted to listen to it.

Peter Purves plays the First Doctor (and Stephen)
Frazer Hines plays the Second Doctor (and Jamie)
