The Big Finish sampler works! For only the second time, I think, I have gone ahead and bought something that I’d previously heard a portion of as part of Big Finish’s habit of releasing free samples of their work. In this case, the release is a collection of related one part stories that have been released as Shadow of the Daleks.

I’ll pick one of them at random (using this convenient random number generator) and then write up an answer.

OK, back to The Five Companions.
As I noted previously, this is “special episode” of Big Finish’s Doctor Who audio line, made available when one subscribes to 12 titles from one of their lines of stories. It’s a bit shorter than a regular Doctor Who audio – about half the length, but treated as one long episode, sans cliff hangers. Continue reading Doctor Who: The Five Companions [Big Finish]
Doctor Who t-shirts. Toy sonic screwdrivers. Girls wearing bow-ties. Boys wearing fezzes. Someone dressed as a Tardis. People discussing their favorite companions. Yes, it’s The Day of the Doctor, the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who, on the big screen, and in goofy 3D. Continue reading The Day of the Doctor
