    Such a long wait!

    Right now I'm the most excited about Big Finish's The Light at the End. I've lost count the number of times I've listened to the trailer now.

    I'm also highly anticipating An Adventure in Time and Space.

    It's hard to be excited by Moffat's anniversary special when there's so little we know about it (and it seems the 60 minutes part might be wrong based on today's interview with Moffat). Only time will tell...

    274.

    I'm just happy that the show is still in production at this time.

    What will everyone be doing on November 23rd?

    Quiet thought to remember the show? Watching your favourite story? Watching An Unearthly Child? Watching a marathon from each Doctor...?

    I'll be a 2 weeks past my 44th birthday by then, so I should have a decent single malt or two on hand for toasting each of the Doctors.

    Hard to say because I'm going to be moving soon, but if time allows, I plan on a major Doctor Who marathon to include all of the Doctors, both BBC and Big Finish.

    I'll likely pick a story from each Doctor:

    1 - The Dalek Invasion of Earth

    The first Hartnell I saw, back in November 1988 on the 25th anniversary. Might watch An Unearthly Child ep 1 as well.

    2 - Orphan eps

    Not too fond of his surviving complete stories, though Tomb and Seeds come close. May just chose a selection of orphans.

    3 - Inferno

    No contest here...

    4 - Genesis of the Daleks

    Haven't seen it in years so should be a good catch up.

    5 - Earthshock or The Five Doctors

    Two favourites as a kid.

    6 - Attack of the Cybermen

    Revelation is my favourite but I haven't seem this in years.

    7 - Silver Nemesis

    Same reasoning as 6.

    8 - The Movie

    Easy one.

    9 - Parting of the Ways

    Best of his year IMO

    10 - Doomsday

    My favourite Tennent ep. Either that or Gridlock. Or the Season Three Dalek eps.

    11 - The Eleventh Hour

    The only episode of his I truly enjoyed.
