Yes...if they're given the rights to make audios based on him which they don't for The Ninth, Tenth, and Eleventh Doctors.

If John Hurt is playing the Doctor, and he's a real Doctor and not an alternate or fake Doctor, then I hope that we do get some exploitation of the character elsewhere. A single outing for the John Hurt Doctor would not be enough!

Of course, i still want that Jackson Lake novel that RTD mentioned years ago.

Absolutely. I would love even just a one-off series/boxset of John Hurt as The Doctor. I'm just not holding my breath that Big Finish will be able to do such a product anytime soon.

Yeah I think BF's license specifically forbids any nuWho which is a bummer because there is so much interesting materials. 9th and 10th doctors, Torchwood, River Song, Madam Vastra, nu-UNIT, companion chronicles. BF stuff is better than most of the crappy audio books that are out now.

Re: Finale discussion thread (spoilerifictitle insided) *SPOILERS WITH

One thing that kinda annoys me with the alleged finale spoilers is that this is something I excluded as an option back in the Asylum of the Daleks, and completely wrote off in Snowmen giving up the hope that it could be this simple.

In this instance, we know that Moffat is making up Clara's story as he goes. In other cases, we may or may not suspect that, but he always says he has a masterplan we'll never figure out. In the case of Clara, he's said explicitly that he cast her as the companion first then decided to cast her as Oswin. What we have are characters who weren't connected but now are, so things may not join correctly.

Maybe AudioGO could, the way they did the first two (or was it three) Tom Baker box sets.

I admit, I'm grasping at straws here. And it's possible that a John Hurt Doctor audio would be such a niche product that it wouldn't be worth doing even if someone could.

True, although I've read mixed reviews about them (and I believe it's three box sets).

No more niche than the Unbound Doctors, and while they may not have sold well (like The Holy Terror), several of them are highly regarded (I've only listened to the David Warner audios, but I've heard that at least the Geoffrey Bayldon audios are also very good). Hell, would it be all that more niche than doing an ongoing series of The Eighth Doctor considering how poorly TV Movie was received (except Paul McGann's performance)?

Re: Finale discussion thread (spoilerifictitle insided) *SPOILERS WITH

The Preview of TNOTD in the new DWM basically confirms the accuracy of the leaked synopsis. (I'd love to know where it came from originally.)

***

Every journey taken by a time-traveller tears a wound in the fabric of reality, and the Doctor has time-travelled more than anyone. But the trail runs cold in Trenzalore, the one place in all of time and space that he should never go. The most dangerous place in the universe… Who is kidnapping the Doctor’s friends, leading him to Trenzalore? Could the Fall of the Eleventh be nigh? Or does an impossible girl hold the key? The Doctor’s past, present, and future lives are in grave danger… and his greatest secret is about to be revealed.

THE DOCTOR: “The path I carved through time and space, from Gallifrey to Trenzalore. My own personal Time Tunnel, leading back to every moment I ever lived. Every step, every tear, every kiss. Even the days I haven’t lived yet. Which is why I shouldn’t be here. The paradoxes… very bad…”

Re: Finale discussion thread (spoilerifictitle insided) *SPOILERS WITH

Someone who was at the Press Screening for the Finale has blabbed everything on IMDb and backed it up with some sneakily taken photos. The original leaked synopsis was spot on but missed out on one major detail that should make half the audience happy the other half not so much.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0436992/...nest/214303270

Here's the "web" of the Doctor's timeline.

As was just pointed out on Gallifrey Base, those pictures look to be fake. Here's another IMDb thread where you can see the same theater backgrounds on alleged shots from the trailer from the second Hobbit movie, which also turned out to be bogus: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1170358/...&p=1#212292477

Blimey, it's all getting a bit crazy on the whole Spoiler front these days. I wonder if it's Whistleblower having another try? (And then there's the childish I-know-more-than-you antics between Timeboy and TDT.)

Re: Finale discussion thread (spoilerifictitle insided) *SPOILERS WITH

There does seem to be a lot more elaborate fakery going on now than in the past. There's also an alleged screengrab from "The Name of the Doctor" of Clara edited into a William Hartnell scene, though that one is more obviously a cheap trick.

I stopped believing that particular idea when it was claimed they'd be using the cliffhanging cliffhanger from 'Dragonfire' for McCoy.

Yeah, those look fake. The image on the screen looks to clear, to crisp to have been projected.

Personally, whoever is doing all of the fake spoilers, my heart goes out to them. I think it's hilarious watching the internet crack in half sometimes.
