   What are the Big Finish productions?   Are those the audio-only stories?  If so, how many of them have there been, which Doctors are represented and are they available through Amazon?   
     Do those include Slipback?  I think that's the right title.  I heard part of it on a public radio station years ago with Colin Baker and Nicola something as Peri, but never did hear the whole thing.

Yeah, those are the audio-only ones. There's a full list over at the Big Finish website.

There are currently 92 releases in the 'monthly' series, plus assorted others (including the 'Unbound' series with various other actors as The Doctor, including Rifftrax-favourite David Warner).

Each doctor was good for the time (our time) in which they were introduced. I have fondness for the 2nd and 4th doctors. Though I am a fan of Doctor Who, I do think that a British MST could have a wonderful time at riffing that series.

I dunno. I thought  the second doctor was a bit flat in his performance.

I heard another one that featured doctors 5, 6, and 7, and that was pretty good. Had a very Douglas Adams-y feel. 

Might have to listen to that one. I'm planning on working my way through the Eighth Doctor's series - I've always been curious to see what might have been if the TV series had been commissioned back then.

Oh forgot about this thread, seems a good place to plug Luke's new song that he released to tie in with the start of the new season.

So, anyone see Smith and Jones yet?  I thought it was a pretty decent introduction for Martha Jones.  She's plucky.  I like that.

Yeah, thought it was a pretty good episode. She's certainly less annoying that Piper's constant chants of "Dok-tah!".

You really didn't like that one? I admit the 'villain' of the piece (i.e., Peter Kay, of whom I'm not a big fan) was pretty lacklustre but I felt that the story was strong enough (the average person's obsession with The Doctor - who can't relate to that?) and the overall message sufficiently bittersweet to carry it. Okay, it was done with all the subtlelty of a sledgehammer but that's the 21st Century Doctor for you.

Plus, how can you not love the "...the real world is much stranger than that; it is so much darker, madder, and so much better" refrain?

I guess it was the villian and the silly ending with the girl

The recent episode "Gridlock" was awesome!!

I admit I wasn't all that excited about seeing it after watching the previews, but story and execution was flawless!!

For the love of....!

The Radio Times is the worst when it come to keeping it's mouth shut and letting people be surprised by tv shows.

Season 3 episode 4/5 spoiler....seriously
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

On the front cover, millions of people are going to see this in the shops over the next week and I bet it won't even be revealed till the last 30 seconds of episode 4.

They did the same thing with the cybermen in season 2, I know they're trying to get people interested in the show but it would be nice to try and at least maintain a bit of suspense for the fans.  I don't really mind spoilers but I bet this could ruin the episode for some people.

(For those that don't know, the Radio Times is a popular 'tv guide' magazine in the UK)

I hate involuntary spoilers. >.< Ones where instead of saying "The skinny on the new episode of Dr. Who Inside" they just shove it into your face like a street-vendor shoving their wares into your face.
