As the faithful await Season 7...
Caught up in a chronic hysteresis, a.k.a. "Planet Rerun" where you've watched every recording of Doctor Who in your possession at least 13 times and are craving something new, something different or something else while we dawdle, lurk and loiter in anticipation of Season 7? In no particular order, here are the URLs for a few of my favorite wide-screen audio productions:
Big Finish Productions: 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. There's also a huge back catalogue to choose from. In addition to the monthly releases, Big Finish also relase a series of short story collections and a second line of 'spin-off' audio plays featuring popular characters and monsters from Doctor Who.
Broken Sea Audio Productions: Doctor Who - Across the dimensions and beyond space comes BrokenSea Audio Productions' incarnation of the intrepid Time Lord, Doctor Who! Whether you are new to the series or a fan from decades past, you will thrill to the exciting adventures of Mark Kalita as time's champion in this fully dramatised audio series based on the legendary BBC TV show.
Darker Projects: Darker Projects offers you a new Doctor, new situations and a new darker streak, in a universe that is no longer black and white. The decisions are tougher, and who can really walk the difficult line to keep order?
The Doctor Who Audio Dramas: "Radio-style" presentations done by professional, semi-professional, and amateur actors. These stories are available for download, each in the section of the respective Doctor.
The Gallifreyan Embassy: Home to the Doctor Who Podcast - Doctor Who: Podshock. You are there. Over 250 episodes to pick from. Can't decide? Download all of them!
The Minister of Chance: Gathering together some of the finest British acting talent to bring you the highest standard of performance and recording possible in audio drama.
The Minster Of Chance happens to be my most recent finding. It features the likes of Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann; acclaimed stage and screen actor Julian Wadham (Spielberg's War Horse, The Madness Of King George, The English Patient, The Iron Lady); the appealing and deeply talented Lauren Crace (EastEnders); the inimitable Paul Darrow (narrator in Star Wars: The Old Republic, as well as starring in Law and Order UK and having burnt his place in sci-fi TV history best anti-hero ever as 'Avon' in the BBC's Blake's 7), Jenny Agutter (An American Werewolf In London, Logan's Run, Equus) and more!
Many of the above productions are available through iTunes.
