New Weekly Doctor Who Adventures in 2009
Gonna miss your weekly fix of Doctor Who in 2009 with the reduced television schedule? Well you can catch weekly new Doctor Who stories in 2009 with Big Finish’s Eighth Doctor adventures! For sixteen weeks starting in March 2009, you can download a new Eighth Doctor audio adventure from the Big Finish web site every Saturday night. Click here for more information.
If you like Doctor Who and you’ve never listened to a Big Finish Doctor Who audio adventure, then you are definitely missing out. A new Doctor Who audio adventure, starring one of the original actors to play the Doctor on television, is released by Big Finish every month. In addition to the monthly releases, Big Finish also releases a series of short story collections and a second line of ‘spin-off’ audio plays featuring popular characters and monsters from Doctor Who.
The recent Eighth Doctor Adventures have been especially good. Big Finish purposely tried to blend the best elements of the Doctor Who classic series with the best elements of the new series. The Doctor and Lucie in Season One and Two faced memorable villains such as: Daleks, Cybermen, Zygons, and Morbius. Some foes from the upcoming Season Three that have been announced include: Krynoids, Wirrn, and the Spiders (from ‘Planet of Spiders‘). The companion, Lucie Miller, is also lots of fun with her brash, no-nonsense attitude.
You do have to pay for Big Finish adventures, but they are well worth the expense. You can still download the Eighth Doctor Adventures Season One and Two directly from the Big Finish site or order them on CD. If you are here in the United States and would prefer CD, I personally recommend you order them from a company called Who North America. They have the best customer service of any retailer I’ve ever dealt with.
