Dear Big Finish: Five Properties On Our Wish List

big finish new doctor who

Big Finish Productions has, since 1999, had the license from the BBC to make Doctor Who audio plays. Big Finish has turned this into a gold mine. They have created new stories for the five remaining classic Doctor Who actors (Tom Baker, Peter Davidson, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, and Paul McGann) and for many of the remaining companions as well. New companions for the Doctor have been created, old characters have been given new spinoff series, and the Whoniverse has been explored and expanded unbound by visual effects. The BBC seems to be quite pleased by Big Finish. Not only were the Eight Doctor’s Big Finish companions named-checked in “The Night of the Doctor,” their license has been extended til 2020.

However, one area has been verboten. The BBC has made any reference to the new Doctor Who series off limits. So no Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, or Twelve Doctors or any of the new companions, monsters, or events can be used in any Big Finish production.

Until now.

    Stuff You Need to Know: “Norman Bates Begins” and More…

    Bates Motel with Bud Cort and Lori Petty

    Pop culture news. There’s a lot of it and before you can say Jack Robinson and wonder who the hell Jack Robinson is…there’s more of it. Here we try to give you a week’s worth of updates in a single post so you can read it all at once and get it out of the way. This week we have a large amount of home video updates…so we’ve given them their own section at the bottom. Enjoy.

  • They’re trying Bates Motel again? Yes, apparently so. I’m referring to the 1987 TV movie which had Bud Cort as the new owner of the Motel…but in this case, we’re talking a TV series prequel to the original film. In this case we’re also talking it showing up on A&E. This is in development, so a pilot hasn’t been greenlighted yet. I have a suspicion it won’t go any further. Pictured there is a bit from a TV Guide issue promoting the TV movie. Yes, that’s Lori Petty. Yes, it also says “Guest Starring Jason Bateman.” Yes. Article source. Image source.
