This is a really useful little diagram, so I thought I’d post it.
If you’ve only ever been here (this blog) a few times, then you probably already know that I’m a massive big finish fan. It’s true. I really like what they do, and I really like how they do it. Some of the newer series that they’re bringing out have been amazing, and I think that they are just going from strength to strength. Even so, I thought I’d put down a few things I’d really like to see them do in the future, just in case they’re listening (although in all seriousness I doubt that they are).
Here’s what I’d like them to do:
- Create an audiobook series for the War Doctor. John Hurt’s performance in the 50th Anniversary episode was inspired, and the character he created shouldn’t be lost forever. There was a single audiobook / book that came out with a war doctor story, but it shouldn’t end there. Certainly not. I think that Big Finish would do an admirable job of creating a whole series for the War Doctor. I hope that they’re considering it.
- Day of the Triffids. Big Finish created a follow on story from Day of the Triffids called ‘Night of the Triffids’, which was really good. However, I wish they’d also do a remake of the original. I think that they could do a great job of this. It’s an excellent story and worth a retelling. They could do it so well.
- UFO, I’d love to see that back again, and I think that Big Finish could do it some real justice.
- Space 1999. Same again!
I’m not sure they’ll listen, or even be aware of what I’m saying, but who knows. Maybe, just maybe …
I was a big fan of Citizen Smith as a kid. I thought he was great and funny. So it was awesome to hear that there’s a chance that the series might come back in the not too distant future. I’d love to see how it turns out. Apparently Robert Lindsey says he wants to reprise his role as he has ‘unfinished business’.
I checked this morning and my Spotify Discover playlist is back! Another 30 tracks for this week.
I’m looking forward to hearing it. I actually missed it quite a bit.
Another one in Edinburgh.
