The Audio Adventures of Doctor Who

Doctor WhoLaunched in 1999 by Big Finish Productions, a small company that had already been producing fully-licensed audio stories featuring Professor Bernice Summerfield (a companion of the seventh Doctor who featured only in Virgin Publishing’s New Adventures novel series), the Doctor Who Audio Adventures marked the return of Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy to their familiar Doctor Who roles, usually with one of their TV companions. In 2001 Paul McGann went into the studio to record the first new eighth Doctor adventures since that character’s singular television appearance in 1996. Initially aiming for a new release in alternating months, the Big Finish audio stories gained popularity rapidly, and went monthly before 1999 was out.

Under producer Gary Russell, Big Finish’s audio stories took place across four episodes of around 25 minutes each, echoing the traditional Doctor Who TV format, and the stories usually didn’t exceed the parameters of the television series in terms of content – sex and swearing were off the table for the main Doctor Who range. Though the initial writers’ guide published by Big Finish stressed that the audio stories represented Doctor Who moving forward without leaning on old enemies and characters, the Daleks and Ice Warriors and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart made their first appearances within the first year of Big Finish’s Doctor Who license.

In 2001, Big Finish began spinning off various characters and situations into their own series. The first audio spinoff was Dalek Empire, with the Cybermen, UNIT, Davros, Sarah Jane Smith and the political machinations of Gallifrey later getting their own spinoffs. In 2003, to mark the 40th anniversary of Doctor Who, Big Finish created a further short-lived spinoff, Doctor Who Unbound, to explore the Doctor Who format in a manner similar to DC Comics’ Elseworlds range, freeing the Doctor from the television show’s considerable continuity baggage and telling stories outside of that continuity. And alongside the Doctor Who range, Big Finish continued to produce Bernice Summerfield audio adventures; Bernice would occasionally cross over into the Doctor Who range, and increasingly, enemies from Doctor Who continuity appeared in Bernice’s solo adventures.
