Which of the 50th Multi-DoctorAnniversarySpecials do u most await for?

Is it The Light at the End, Big Finish's audio drama extravaganza, with the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Doctors appearing with their respective companions? Or is the, admittedly more eagerly anticipated live-action Special, with the Eleventh Doctor joining forces with the Tenth Doctor and the, mysterious-to-date Forgotten Doctor, portrayed by John Hurt?

I must admit, I find both quite enticing... But with Big Finish, the certainty of quality is more assured than it is, sadly, with the live-action counterpart.

But, in any case, whats your vote? Vote away!

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.

I don't listen to any audios, so by dfualt it simply has to be the live action one with 10,11 and the 8.5th.

The Light at the End by a long margin. While it may not contain any of the new series characters or elements, it's far more exclusive to the overall Doctor Who universe.

I have no interest whatsoever in audio dramas and don't plan to listen to this one or any other. As far as I'm concerned, Doctor Who is a television series, and that's where it's at its best.

The audio seems more like a celebration of the classic series, for sure.

If they turn the audios into books I might be interested. I like reading books not listening to them.

I look forward to seeing to see Hurt, 10 and 11 together. It would have been nice to see teh earlier doctors but it will still be a good special.

Its not an audio book, though. Its audio drama - not the same thing at all.

You might thinking of The Companion Chronicles which are actually "enhanced" audio-books.

I enjoy the audios, but it's the tv show that keeps me in the fandom. So yeah, the LA Special.

I'd be looking forward to the BF special if it wasn't written by Nicholas Briggs who has worn out his welcome with me. Unless it gets great reviews I can't see myself checking it out.

On the other hand, I'm psyched for the 50th special.

Neither of them.

I don't like Big Finish's stuff and I can't stand David Tennant.

I'm excited for both...but I'm most anticipating the 50th Anniversary episode.

The episode for me, I don't read the books or listen to the audio dramas so I don't really care about that.

I voted for the TV Special, but even though I've never really listened to any Audios, I'm going to make a point of getting hold of this one.
