Big Finish release a trailer for the 50th anniversary Doctor Who story, The Light At The End

It’s got Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann as the Doctor (obviously), as well as Louise Jameson as Leela, Sarah Sutton as Nyssa, Nicola Bryant as Peri, Sophie Aldred as Ace and India Fisher as Charley. Plus Geoffrey Beevers is back as The Master – well, one of them, obviously – and there are ‘special guest stars’ promised, too.

I might actually get this when it comes out (and review it for you lovely people). Even if it is written and directed by Nicholas Briggs.

November 23rd 1963 proves to be a significant day in the lives of all eight Doctors…

It’s the day that Bob Dovie’s life is ripped apart…

It’s also a day that sets in motion a catastrophic chain of events which forces the first eight incarnations of the Doctor to fight for their very existence. As a mysterious, insidious chaos unfolds within the TARDIS, the barriers of time break apart…

From suburban England through war-torn alien landscapes and into a deadly, artificial dimension, all these Doctors and their companions must struggle against the power of an unfathomable, alien technology.

From the very beginning, it is clear that the Master is somehow involved. By the end, for the Doctors, there may only be darkness.
