...and don't forget - starting in January, Big Finish will begin releasing their 4th Doctor adventures as well so look for Tom Baker and Louise Jameson (as Leela) when those start coming out.
EDIT: These plays seem to play out as an audio drama as opposed to a narration with drama accenting the story - more like a Big Finish play.
