I’ve really enjoyed Big Finish’s 8th Doctor stuff. Started with Storm Warning and currently into Doom Coalition. It’s hard to find time to watch anything but I can listen more consistently. It’s especially fun knowing that the 8th Doctor essentially had a career due to wishes and fishes, sort of like fandom over Mara Jade or Thrawn back in the day.
The production quality is better than you’d think for an audio drama. It’s just as good as the show, just in a different format.
I plan to finish through what’s out for the 8th Doctor so far chronologically, then the War Doctor, then start rewatching the 2005 revived series.
Yes! I’m a huge fan of Big Finish.
Got into them at the same time I was first getting into the franchise itself. I incorporated the 6th Doctor’s Lost Stories into my watch through of the classic series. The original Lost Stories run from The Nightmare Fair through to The Macros makes for a fantastic replacement for the lost season of the classic series. It really builds up and enhances the Sixth Doctor’s friendship with Peri.
But it was Storm Warning and 8’s run in the main range that really sealed my love of Big Finish.
