Big Finish Productions have announced “Doctor Who: The Lost Season”, recreating the original, never produced, season 23 with Colin Baker (The Doctor) and Nicola Bryant (Peri).
Long, long ago (1985) the BBC put Doctor Who (then staring Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor) on “hiatus” while pre-production was underway for it’s 23rd season. When the show came back 18 months later an entirely different Season 23 was produced. A few of the stories from the “lost” season 23 have been novelized but most have not.
Now Big Finish Productions (who have been producing amazing audio drama for years) announced that they’re going to be recreating the entire season on audio, including one previously unknown story.
The new series of Doctor Who begins airing tonight on the Sci-Fi channel in the US. The first two episodes will air back to back. I’ve seen it and it’s good stuff. Watch it! Set your Tivo.
You can find the schedule here.
Haven’t posted much lately (still waiting for my new glasses),
but this is big news. The 2005 Series of Doctor Who is finally
going to air in the US (there’s a nice summary at
Outpost Gallifrey). I’ve seen it, and it’s great. I can’t begin
to explain how great it is. Even Denise enjoyed watching it.
There’s no need to have seen the classic series to enjoy this, so
don’t let the show’s history put you off.
