Big Finish 168: 1001 Nights
I thought I recognized the voice of Alexander Siddig! I’d love to hear more of him in Big Finish. I wonder if they could get licensing to do a Section 31 series…

30 Days of Summer Time Doctor Who
Hello, Whovians and happy summer! With all this sunshine and fun times going on, we thought to ourselves “hey, we should do a thing.”
- Day eight: What’s your favorite Doctor Who audio adventure? If you don’t listen to the audios, click here tell us which summary you think sounds exciting!
It is really hard to pick only one. I’ve listened to all but a few through 160 or so and really only found two that I would call not good but so many that were exceptional. Narrowing it down to one Doctor, Six is easily my favorite. He showed great potential in his TV run, but circumstances of the time prevented him from reaching his full glory. In the audios Colin Baker delivers and becomes the great Doctor he was meant to be.
Still, picking just one Sixth Doctor audio is very difficult. Jubilee? The Sandman? The One Doctor? Davros? They’re so diverse and yet so good. In the end, I have to go with …Ish.
…Ish. is a story that I don’t think would ever have worked on TV, but is brilliant in audio because it is all about wordplay. It also makes me appreciate Peri like I never could in the show. It has some tricky dialog and heady abstract stuff going on, but it isn’t hard to follow. Go give …ish a listen.
