Well that's the end of that:

So I guess we'll have to hope that Big Finish will be allowed to sell the download version of the last part of Destiny.

Crazy. A real shame for the people losing their jobs, but how could you not make money with the BBC catalogue at your disposal.

Missmanagement etc. can do a lot of damage I guess.

Re: AudioGo Going, Going, Gone?

I suppose the one positive that could come out of this situation is that BF will end up with the entire audio license, rather then it being split in two and we'll finally get some New Series audios. (Or 10th Doctor audios, since Eccleston won't and Smith will probably want a few years off before coming back again.)

I'd really like to have more Tenth Doctor audios, though the 9th audios would be even more preferable - but, BF won't get to have anyone else for the part, so...

If they did recast, Stephen Beckett from The Kingmaker would be ideal; his Richard III sounded like Eccleston's Doctor. (That one also had Jon Culshaw as the fourth Doctor.)

Re: AudioGo Going, Going, Gone?

To update: Paul Spragg from Big Finish has confirmed that the last DOTD release will be available as a download only for the time being. Sucks for those of us still old fashioned enough to want a physical object but at least we'll get to hear it.

Especially bad for people holding out for the boxed set! I subscribed to the BF downloads, though.

Yup, like me. I have had the boxset sitting in my cart at Amazon for a few weeks now.

Re: AudioGo Going, Going, Gone?

Oh dear. It looks like it's not just another case of a business failing in a fragile economy.

While awful for the 100 people who are going to lose their jobs due to the greed of a few, I can see it working out better for BF in the long run with them coming away with the exclusive audio license for all of Doctor Who, not just the Original Series.

Re: AudioGo Going, Going, Gone?

How possible will this be, though? The aquisition of the NuWho Doctors by BF, that is?

Back when the series returned to TV there were seperate licenses for Original and New Series material but that's no longer the case. It's only split at the moment because of AudioGO. Basically they have the entire DW audio license and they have (soon to be had) a contract with BF that sub-licensed them the rights to produce material based on anything up to the TVM.

And even then BF have started to be given permission to include a few New Series things here and there; like the Time War Daleks appearing in the last series of 'Gallifrey'.

It's not available yet, still says November. I got 1-10 as digital downloads and they were all available promptly.

7th of November was the original release date; but I think we can cut them some slack if it doesn't quite hit that.

The Time Machine is already available on Audible in both the US and the UK, so I doubt Big Finish will be too far behind.
