minuet to hell

“the books are not technically canon with the audio dramas” SMH

  • The Zygon Who Fell to Earth references The Bodysnatchers
  • Sam is in a list of the Doctor’s old companions in Minuet in Hell (many people think this was retconned with Samson, but that doesn’t work because of the mind wipe in Terror Firma)
  • Fitz’s Story?!?!
  • Mary’s Story has the Doctor mentioning Compassion and Trix
  • This doesn’t really count but the whole “Imperiatrix Romana” thing is 100% based on how she’s portrayed in the EDAs
  • Yes Zagreus tries to show the EDAs in a different universe but what they see doesn’t even match what happened in Adventuress of Henrietta Street soo
  • The Tomorrow Windows (I think) even shows something that looks like Storm Warnings in the Doctor’s future

BIG FINISH EXCLUSIONISM NEEDS TO STOP

So, just how many times has the Eighth Doctor lost his memory? Because it’s a joke that everyone makes about him, but it’s crazy how many times it actually happens. Stories that I remember involve Eight losing his memory:

-The Movie

-The Eight Doctors

-The Ancestor Cell (an amnesia that persists for the following THIRTY-NINE novels)

-Minuet in Hell

-Terror Firma

-Fear Itself

-Something Inside

He forgets things in The Light at the End, The Starship of Theseus, and One Life due to time changing.

And an honourable mention to The Natural History of Fear, which doesnt quite qualify for spoilery reasons.

Please feel free to add more, I’m certain there are some others I haven’t listened to or read yet.
