Audio Dramas in 2010

December 30, 2010

It’s time to start the year in review.  In previous years I listed my books read that year, and I still intend to do that this year. The list will be quite a bit shorter this year, though, because I made the decision at the beginning of 2010 not to listen to any audiobooks. I even canceled my Aubible subscription. Why? Well for years I’ve been buying audio dramas, mainly from Big Finish and primarily Doctor Who related. But I never listened to many of them because most of my spare “listening” time was taken up with audiobooks. So I decided to take a year and see how many audio dramas I could get through.  How did I do?

Bernice Summerfield: Dead and Buried

September 5, 2010

This came out a few days ago, but I finally got around to watching it.  If your a fan of Big Finish’s Bernice Summerfield series, you might be interested in this new animated short , which falls canonically between series 10 and series 11.  If you’ve never read or listened to any of Benny’s adventures, maybe this will get you interested.

Doctor Who: Cobwebs

July 31, 2010

Today Big Finish Productions released the much-awaited Doctor Who audio adventure Cobwebs, a a four part story by Jonathan Morris.  It’s noteworthy as it is the first time in 26 years that the 5th Doctor ensemble of Peter Davison (The Doctor), Janet Fielding (Tegan Jovanka), Sarah Sutton (Nyssa), Mark Strickson (Vislor Turlough) are all together for a Doctor Who adventure of any kind.  Here’s the trailer:

It’s the first of 3 audios featuring the 4 actors together.  As much as I like the Big Finish Doctor Who audio stories, there’s always been a sense of incompleteness when the crew was doing separate audio stories or companion chronicles.  I just listened to it, and it was like coming home again.  I was grinning the entire time.  Plus the story is a very good time travel one, complex without being mind-numbing.

You can order Doctor Who: Cobwebs online or purchase it for download on the Big Finish website.
