With the recent investment Big Finish has made into Audiobooks for both Blake's 7 and Doctor Who, I was wondering what people would like to see in those and perhaps other ranges going forward.
- I would love if Torchwood had audiobooks, whether that be readings of previously released books(that never got an audiobook...) or original fiction, I would be super happy. It would also allow for even more in depth character exploration. Maybe a Colchester audiobook read by Paul Clayton or Ramon Tikram.
- For the Audio Novels range, we have 5 unannounced teams as it were and 5 unannounced writers so... - War Doctor, Ollistra, narrated by Carolyn Pickles. Written by Louise Jameson - 12th Doctor and Perkins narrated by Frank Skinner. Written by Guy Adams - 11th Doctor, Amy and Rory narrated by Arthur Darvill. Written by Sarah Ward - 1st Doctor, Ian, Susan and Barbara narrated by Carole Ann Ford. Written by Nigel Fairs - 2nd Doctor, Jamie, Ben and Polly narrated by Anneke Wills. Written by AK Benedict

I'm gonna be honest, I think Torchwood works at its absolute best as audio drama. I've heard some of the BBC original audiobooks and while they were good, they didn't come anywhere close to the plays and Big Finish Torchwood. Equally, it would be interesting to see, so who knows...
I'd love if they did audiobooks about the Master on his own. I think it would be a really good way to use Delgado's Master. After Terror of the Master, this Master really lends himself to prose.
I agree, some Survivors audiobooks would be great to hear. The Omega Factor audiobooks have been fantastic so hoping Big Finish can work the same magic for Survivors.
As for the audio novels I'd definitely be more interested in novels featuring the Doctors that aren't so well represented in Big Finish's current output. David Troughton would be a great choice for narration duties on a 2nd Doctor audio novel. He's narrated a few BBC releases including the audiobook version of the original novel Wheel of Ice and always does a great job.
Dan Starkey and Geoffrey Beevers are also very accomplished audiobook narrators that Big Finish already have on their books!
