So, for Doctor Who's 50th anniversary, what we have is half a normal season, Matt Smith leaving, a 60-minute long special and our hopes of ever seeing lost episodes brutally crushed by the steel boots of harsh reality? Happy anniversary, everyone!
Plus a huge number of special audios, the DVD range completed (with all Pertwee stories in color), a classic story in HD, e-books with all the Doctors, and a 90-minute serial about the very beginnings of the show. That's a pretty nice celebration.
To elaborate further, Big Finish and AudioGo is in the process of releasing an 11-part series called Destiny of the Doctor
which features one story of each Doctor as told through two actors, usually one companion and a guest star.
Additionally, and this is what I'm most excited about for the entire anniversary, Big Finish will be releasing The Light at the End
, which features Tom Baker through Paul McGann with one companion each with additional companion cameos, all facing off against Geoffrey Beevers as The Master.
Edit: Also, we have animated episodes of The Reign of Terror
(already released), The Ice Warriors
, The Tenth Planet
, and The Moonbase
. That's pretty damn significant in itself.
