Re: Big Finish Multi-Doctor 50th Anny Announcement

I wish they'd start making announcements like this for the TV series! They don't need to give specifics, but something to whet our appetitve, just like Big Finish has.

Does the fact some classic Doctor's are in the Big Finish production indicate anything about them not appearing in the TV series?

In other words, would the BBC allow this if there were plans for these classic Doctors to appear in the TV show? Or is it completely independent?

Written and directed by Nicholas Briggs. Of course it is.

Whatever the TV series has planned in the way of multiple Doctors, I doubt it will center on the classic series Doctors in the way this will, so I don't think it tells us anything either way.

Excited about this! Well ok it being by Nick Briggs dulls the thrill a bit since his recent stuff hasn't been anything great but this is definite special edition purchase for me!

Paging Sindatur. Sindy to the blue courtesy phone ...

Yeah, this will be mine too. I'm wondering what that special edition one is really about ... and if it will be signed by all the Doctors? They've done some pretty great signings in the past.

Sounds good. I'm not necessarily interested in the 2 hour long Documentaries (I'd have to know more about them), but, the Companion Chronicles extra sounds cool. Shame, it's not available on the Standard release.

Heh, Omaha's post wasn't up yet, when I opened the thread, he you posted while I was reading the article

Patience, BBC will announce something when there is something to announce.

This is by no means an indication of BBC's plans for the show. We may still get a multi-Doctor team-up on ths show, we just have to wait and see.

^^ Just an honest question to see if we could make any deductions from the Big Finish announcement.

If you click through it's already available for pre-order.

Nothing about signing but a 70 minute doc about the making of the special and another one about the history of Big Finish's Doctor Who range.

I know, five discs. Two are the story, two are the documentaries, and one is a special companion chronicle with William Russel. I'm speculating, might it be signed on top of the Doctors, companions, and other "special guests" they mention?

Provided they can come up with a new take on it, or at least an interesting story, why not take advantage of the audio medium and do something that just can't be done on screen now with the same effectiveness? It can also be aimed more squarely at the fans without having to take the casual viewers into account.

The TV series may do something entirely different.

Perhaps, but I still think it's a cool tradition!

I'm looking forward to it.
