“Peter Capaldi also has a lot of meaning for me personally. At the time, Capaldi had yet to appear on screen as Doctor Who, but his love and respect for the character was very evident. The concept was to show Capaldi’s transition into the role through his costume and I imagined him changing in his sleeping quarters in an unseen part of the Tardis.”

Oooh, oooh, oooh! Please tell me your favorite story from Big Finish, where you think someone should start in Big Finish (regardless of whether they've started listening to stories or not), and your opinion on how willing you think Capaldi will be to do Twelfth Doctor stories.

Favorite story from Big Finish: since I already told Nonny it is The Red Lady, I’m going to add a bonus answer and say that I just listened to The Revolution, which is the first of the stories in The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield Vol. 1, which I bought on @scriptscribbles‘ recommendation, and it was brilliant. There are very few unapologetically silly stories that actually hold together really quite well in the plot department (I’m looking at you, Zagreus–please don’t eat me when I’m sleeping, though). I love the Seventh Doctor, but like Benny, I get a bit impatient when he’s being all Grand Chessmaster of Time, so I really enjoyed hearing that aspect of his character get sent up good and proper. Also Benny is great and she and River should be in an audio together, with the Seventh Doctor, because it would annoy him so much.

Where I think someone should start in Big Finish: I started with Storm Warning, which is Charley Pollard’s first audio with the Eighth Doctor (and Paul McGann’s first Big Finish audio). I love lots about Charley’s arc with the Eighth Doctor, and there are a lot of really good stories. But honestly, Storm Warning is a bit rough, both in its script and its technical execution. Unless like me they are already a massive Eighth Doctor fan, I worry there are a lot of fans who might not continue with the audios if that’s the first one they listen to. So I’m going to be so very unpredictable and say Doom Coalition, because it’s immediately good, with a fantastic TARDIS team, mostly great scripts (a few are so-so), and a really solid arc. The aforementioned The Red Lady is the second story in the first set, and not only is it a cracking good story, but it shows off some of the brilliant things that Big Finish can do with the audio medium. And I cannot stress this enough: DOCTOR WHO IS MADE FOR AUDIO. But if someone is not an Eighth Doctor fan, then lol what a ridiculous idea, as if. 

Anyway the great thing about Big Finish is you can really start anywhere, with any Doctor, and just dive in and find what you like (there’s lots to choose from free to listen on Spotify). A more pragmatic answer might be that Big Finish have been having weekend sales loosely themed on the series 10 episode that airs that weekend. I expect Cybermen stories to go on sale this coming weekend and unless you really hate Cybermen stories you should just buy what’s on sale because lbr Big Finish is kind of expensive (but totally worth it, please don’t pirate Big Finish audios, they’re a small company and we want them to stay in business, and they do give away a lot of stuff free or on sale, so you don’t have to resort to piracy).

How willing Capaldi will be to do Twelfth Doctor audio stories: Absolutely 100%, no margin of error. I do think it’s probable that he’ll take some time to do other things. He’s said that one reason he decided not to continue for series 11 is because he feels that once you think you’ve worked out how to play a character, it’s time to go–otherwise you get lazy, and he loves Doctor Who too much to ever do that. I also think he will not want to overshadow whoever the new Doctor on telly is. So realistically (and it pains me very much to say it), I think the soonest we could possibly expect even an announcement of Twelfth Doctor audios is early 2019. But I think after a break, he won’t be able to say no. Especially if Jenna Coleman wants to do it, and she’s already worked with Big Finish once, on their 50th anniversary Destiny of the Doctor set.

Pictured above is Georgia Moffett Tennant with her father, her husband, and some guy named Peter, who I think might be her doctor or something. 

I didn’t go to the Long Island Who convention last week, but I listened to the Big Finish podcast and there was a fun bit of (possible) news in there. 

Nicholas Briggs was interviewing Paul McGann, Colin Baker, and Peter Davison. At one point Davison pressed Briggs (who is executive producer at Big Finish) to provide more work for his real-life daughter Georgia Moffett—perhaps by making audio adventures with Jenny, the Doctor’s cloned daughter from the David Tennant episode of televised Doctor Who “The Doctor’s Daughter” broadcast in 2008. Initially Briggs replied in a neutral tone, but then he hemmed and hawed a bit, making noises about it being a good idea, and a possibility if certain things fall into place. As he went on, he then seemed to chide Davison slightly about confidential information, and then there is what sounds like an edit in the podcast and the foursome suddenly begin talking about something completely different.

Not everyone is a fan of that episode, of the character of Jenny in general principle. Personally, it’s not my favorite episode, but the character could certainly be used in interesting ways. I like the idea of a tough adventurer, who tries to use her parentage as a commodity to negotiate advantages during her adventures. I don’t know if that’s the approach they would take at Big Finish, but I’d bet cash money we’ll see the publication of a Doctor’s Daughter Adventures boxed set some time before the end of 2017.
