Back in 1993 for The 30th Anniversary of Doctor Who audiences and Doctor Who fans were treated to a 3D Crossover between Eastenders
and Doctor Who called Dimensions in Time which as we all know was the equivilant of The Star Wars Holiday Special and never would be released on Home Video
there was the original plans for The Dark Dimension (which Nick Briggs has gone on record to say it wont be adapted for a number of reasons- sadly)
however it turns out before Dimensions in Time was made there were 2 Other Stories
by David Roden
a 5 minute special featuring The 7th Doctor, Ace and The Brigaider that had only a storyline before being cancelled by JNT:
In the English countryside, the Brigadier collects the Doctor for a UNIT reunion. However, the Cybermen have been tracking the Doctor and their ship crashes nearby.
The Doctor and the Brigadier take refuge in a church as the Cybermen advance towards them.
Since David Roden has written for Doctor Who (The Nemonite Invasion and The Weeping Short story in the story of martha anthology) perhaps he could expand upon this storyline?
The Other Special written by David Roden was called The Endgame
a story featuring The Third/Fourth/Fifith/Sixth and Seventh Doctors, The Brigadier and The Celestial Toymaker
that is a complete script (2 episodes)
The Celestial Toymaker has captured the Doctor's earlier incarnations, whom he wants to possess and turn into more Toymakers. The Seventh Doctor agrees to compete against the Toymaker in a game, with all of his lives at stake. Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and UNIT must locate the TARDIS in a funfair guarded by Cybermen. When the Brigadier wins the game, the Doctors join together to attack the Toymaker. The Brigadier takes advantage of the opportunity to shoot the Toymaker, who is sucked into the sphere he had used to hold the Doctors captive. The earlier Doctors are returned to their proper place in the timestream, while the Seventh Doctor and the Brigadier plan to deposit the sphere in a black hole, trapping the Toymaker forever.
So where im getting at is what if Big Finish worked with Roden to adapt these ideas/script for a special boxset?
