As a celebration of 50 years of Doctor Who, easily the Big Finish production.

I have seen nothing (so far) to suggest that the live action effort is anything more than your average nu-Who 'special' episode. It may be really good, but as a 50th anniversary spectacular I'm decidedly underwhelmed (so far).
I don't mind at all that it won't feature the old Doctors, since those that shouldn't appear have gotten really, really old (Davison was fine back then, but he'd be pushing it now)... That is, except Paul McGann, whose non reappearence on Who is suspicious, since he's able extremely well and could have easily returned to the part for one last time, had he been asked to.

On that regard, the BBC seems, from all indications given by Moffat and Tennant in their respective interviews, seems rather unwilling to celebrate Old Who, at least in a direct manner. Thus, I reach the same unimpressed phase - and I'm a fan who came into Doctor Who through Nu Who.
"Spock...?" Kirk said, whispering.
"I am... most pleased to see again, Captain" Spock formally replied.
McCoy shook his head in disgust. "Oh, for crying out loud, Spock. Its been eighty years!"
"Seventy eight point four years, Doctor."
