I've only pre-ordered 3 of these this is due to letterbox issues from 4-cd case boxes and I feel less inclination to hurry for downloads as I prefer physical I'm pretty certain I'll get the other 4 though...
"Perhaps I should tell him I've been possessed by dozens of aliens and it's never done me any harm"
Having really high hopes for the Time War set... after the Valeyard was revealed, this became one of my most anticipated releases. Plus now that we have seen how dark BF are willing to go with the 8th Doctor... this could be epic and the best Time War set for the 8th Doctor yet. Plus, of course meeting up with River Song again. The trailers promise a lot of fun. And last but not least another outing with the 6th Doctor. The July release already was very enjoyable and I hope they keep it up. Not sure about transference yet. If it is a mystery crime thriller it might be up my alley. Also if it is some absurd supernatural story. I am however too sensitive for horror... so might not get it if it turns out to be straight horror. So hopefully someone on here spoilers me in that regard beforehand... Already had a nasty shock with Lies in Ruins in the anniversary release- do not need another set of sleepless nights so shortly after that.
I'm looking forward to the stories in this River set perhaps more than any to date: it's my era she's visiting, but is it ready for River?!
And 'Transference' was bought on trust as part of the BF Originals bundle in what now seems like the distant past of January last year and it's still (deliberately) a mystery to me - wherever it goes, I'm ready to go along for the ride.
Sixie/Peri/Daleks, of course.
And my credit card is getting drawn into the Time War, I know it's going to happen sooner or later...
I say! It's #HarrySullivan. Good show.
(Also a personal anticipation - I'm going through J&L for the first time and making myself take it slowly! As it's August, I've promised to go on a cruise - a cruise on the Fata Morgana in J&L IX. I'm surely it will be a peaceful, relaxing four episodes at sea with no aliens, supernatural beings or other infernal incidents... )
What a month, Jesus. Getting everything. And based on pure Hour x Hour basis, this is the biggest month this year!
BF Original: Transference - I'm so excited for this. I like that Big Finish is willing to take risks for this sort of thing, and an 8 hour miniseries is a huge undertaking! This is the type of stuff you'd find on BBC Radio, and the promo art looks ridiculously good. I'm genuinely disappointed this isn't out as a Limited Book set, as it'd be flipping awesome.
8th Doctor Time War: I won't deny I'm not the hugest fan of these Time War sets, though I do certainly enjoy them. In saying that, The War Valeyard is amazing and the writers attached to this set can do wonders. I'm particularly curious for Lisa McMullins story (who's fast becoming one of Big Finish' most active writers, with 5 stories written before the first was released!).
Diary of River Song Vol 6: To say this set is self-indulgent is an understatement. This looks to be one of the most fanwankiest sets out there. Whether that's a good thing is another question, but I think if nothing else it'll absolutely be fun as heck. How couldn't it be!
The Emissary of the Daleks: Well Memories of a Tyrant was my favourite Main Range release this year so hopefully this can keep up the momentum. Andrew Smith can write for Sixie brilliantly, and is excellent at doing straight, fun adventures, so I think this'll be a fun ride at worst.
The Hope: The Torchwood Monthlies are always good, and Owen and Andy is a combo I adore, if based off of their previous adventure.
#harrysullivan: I'm sold on the title alone.
Dorian Gray: The Lost Confessions: Finally I'm very curious about this. I'm disappointed that Dorian disappeared, though I understand, so to get a brief return is a joy (even if its a different format). I just wish they were available on CD so I can add to my collection (or I had the technical knowhow to just do cover arts myself and make my own CD's).
Really looking forward to Transference, the premise sounds great and Alex Kingston is always value for money.
I’m hoping the presence of the Valeyard will add an element of darkness that’s missing in the Time War range. Something for McGann to get his teeth into, like The War Master and Lie of Ruins. The excerpt that delves into Bliss’ backstory is a step in the right direction.
I haven’t heard Memories of a Tyrant yet, so I must change that in time for Emissary of the Daleks.
I thinks River is better than the gimmicky approach they’re taking for Series 6, but as I said, Alex is always value for money. I rewatched Carnival of Monsters last week and think there’s potential for delving into the Miniscope. And that cover is very striking.
Harry is my favourite companion, with him, the Doctor and Sarah Jane my favourite TARDIS team, so I can’t wait for #HarrySullivan!

I have everything pre-ordered this month. Hoping the Time War will fall together more to my liking a little more than last time, but the Valeyard will probably help a lot. The River set might be limited in outcomes by history but the theme of the set sounds like a fun premise and I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with it. Looking forward to the Harry Sullivan story, too - Harry and Sarah are the first companions I ever "met" - and very, very glad for more Dorian, my second Big Finish range. It's also great to have Peri back in the monthly range and I always like a good Dalek story.
