A fun little game where you have to try and avoid hearing "Last Christmas" by Wham between Dec 1st and Dec 24th...which considering how often the bloody thing is played everywhere once December gets here you are destined to fail by at least the second day. Which by a staggering coincidence is exactly how long it took me to fail Whogeddon...🤣
Discovered a new one today: when you feel an odd sense of solidarity/camaraderie with the actors/writers/producers when you listen to the BTS track and it turns out it's just as hard for them to discuss audio dramas without resorting to visual language as it is for the rest of us.
Around the start of COVID, I posted that I was becoming far less addicted to Big Finish than I used to be. Sadly, I have continued to significantly decrease my BF listening/interest since then.
Now that David Warner and Paul Darrow are no longer with us, the Early Adventures and the Companion Chronicles have ended, Lalla has stopped recording Gallifrey, the Time war releases have grown stale etc... the only releases I still regularly buy are 1) the 3rd Dr Adventures (though only Liz and Sarah stories now that we are only getting older Jo), 2) the 4th Dr Adventures, 3) the 5th Dr Adventures, 4) the Lost Stories, 5) War Master, and the occasional 7th Doctor or Torchwood audio. Still 12-ish releases a year, but FAR down on what it used to be.
As a friend of mine said the other day, "it feels like the magic has gone". Does anyone else feel the same?
That being said, and as aussiedoctorwhofan will confirm, the BF releases I am still "addicted" to I am still VERY addicted to.
I still adore the David Warner Unbound Doctor stories and it will be bittersweet hearing my favourite audio Dr Who one last time in Once and Future.
Also, I still absolutely count three of the Fourth Doctor Lost stores (The Foe from the Future, The Valley of Death and The Doomsday Contract) and the five Fifth Doctor Lost Stories (The Elite, Hexagora, The Children of Seth, Nightmare Country, and Loups-Garoux) as absolutely canonical along with the Pertwee BBC audios (Paradise of Death and Ghosts of N-Space), The Pescatons, Exploration Earth: The Time Machine and Slipback. It's an odd list, but as someone whose favourite Doctors are 3, 4 and 5, it works for me.
So, my addiction is still clearly there, just more manageable
