OK, so a subscription pays for the monthly releases of the category you subscribe to for the length of time you subscribe? you don't have to purchase a certain number of disks in that line, on top of the Subscription fee?
Pretty much. Basically, you're pre-ordering either 6 or 12 months at a time (of whatever range you choose), and get a discount, bonus stuff, and free shipping.

Re: Best Audio Book?

Looking at it you'd have to start with the August release - 176. Starlight Robbery but that's the middle part of a trilogy so you may be better starting with the second September release 178. Fanfare For The Common Men which is the first part of a 50th anniversary themed trilogy they are doing - one story each for Davison, Baker & McCoy all set in 1963.

Also announced in the cast? Lynda B, returning as The Inquisitor.

So yeah, time to save up for a year's sub.
I saw that. She was a fine addition to the Gallifrey series so I know she'll be great here, too. I just wish Bonnie Langford was in it as well.

She's a chubby chaser.

(Notice how quickly Melanie abandoned the thin 7th Doctor when she got a good look at Glitz's pie-belly?)

Who is the fat man she can cling to and feed diet shakes in/on Gallifrey?

If I'm reading this right, it sounds like a monthly sort of "book club" but with audios, and done online. Is there any interest in doing our own here, with each month's title? At 3 bucks, it's something most may be able to afford, and for those who have been listening for a long time, maybe they haven't heard each month's story in awhile (depending on what those later stories are).

Provided there are others who would be up for discussing, I'll start a new thread next weekend. That should give people time to get it and give it a listen.

Then again, if no one is up for it, that's cool too.

Re: Best Audio Book?

Well, this Book Club is really cool. I figured it would be a subscription service, and checked it out anyways, and I find out that, no, they just discount the download site-wide. Totally cool for me, since I prefer the downloads, it'll be a great way to add to my back catalog, which although I have quite a number of Audioplays already is rather small in the grand scheme of what's available. I would imagine they won't pick any stories that are universally considered poor (and probably sticking to stories that were well received, or at least just going in order for the range, either way, "Two Wings up" from Me)

Downloading Sirens of Time now

Re: Best Audio Book?

So, I finally got around to downloading those Minister of Chance Audios that Pindar linked a couple pages back, and decided to Google/Wiki to find out where The Minister of Chance came from, which led me to Death Comes to Time, and I found the Flash Animation for Death Comes to Time on both Youtube and another popular streaming site, in case there's anyone else like me, who's not familiar with Death Comes to Time or just wants to watch it again, if they have it. I'll probably watch the Flash Animation tomorrow Night (2hrs 58 minutes for the 5 episodes, and I'll be watching the S3 premiere episodes of Falling Skies tonight, so Death Comes to Time will be tomorrow night's entertainment)

I downloaded the Prologue, plus 5 episodes, last one is Episode 5 In a Bank on the River Hex 51:50 running time. Is that the latest, or do I need to look in another spot on the site? I just downloaded them yesterday about 3pm California Time

Be awhile before I listen to them, but, they are ready for me, when I do get to them.

BTW, how ya doin' now? All better? You seem to have some color back in your posting (You were sick and drugged up...right?)
