Big Finish’s 20th Anniversary Doctor Who Story: The Legacy Of Time

Big Finish celebrates 20 years of Doctor Who Stories

Big Finish is celebrating 20 years of original Doctor Who stories in the most “Doctor Whoish” way. Not only does The Legacy Of Time feature six (count ’em SIX) incarnations of the famous Time Lord, but it also has companions from both the old and new series. It’s a multi-generational mash-up that can only be done by Big Finish.

Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, and Paul McGann all reprise their respective Doctors, while Tim Treloar replaces the late great Jon Pertwee. Some of the familar supporting characters include Ace, Leela, Jo Grant, Osgood, Kate Stewart, and of course River Song.

The six CD set (?!?!) is currently available, but is limited to 4,000 copies. An MP3 edition is available for immediate download. Both are available at Big Finish’s site.

The Sixth Doctor: Colin Baker (1984-1986)

The mid-Eighties were a tumultuous time for Doctor Who. Peter Davison and his mild-mannered Fifth Doctor departed the show after three seasons and was replaced by the much more brash Sixth Doctor Colin Baker. Fans found the change a bit jarring. Still, despite the controversial casting change, the show continued to score great ratings.

Then came 1985. BBC Controller Michael Grade canceled the show. For over a year, fans petitioned to bring back Doctor Who. When it did return in 1986, the entire season became the 14-part Trial Of A Time Lord epic.

Join Seth, Mark, and Uncle Greg as they time-travel back to the mid-80s and recount the news and controversies using actual press clippings from the time. This is as close as you’ll get to hopping in a TARDIS and traveling back 30 years.
