    While I loved just about every last moment of "The Day of the Doctor" (including getting a bit lump in my throat at a certain surprise scene), part of the classic Whovian in me was still a bit disappointed that we didn't an appearance by all the remaining living Doctors. I realize that time has passed and that seeing the Doctors older might interfere with our memories of them (since they're all ageless on the DVD releases), but I still think it would have been fun to see the Doctor run into some While I loved just about every last moment of "The Day of the Doctor" (including getting a bit lump in my throat at a certain surprise scene), part of the classic Whovian in me was still a bit disappointed that we didn't an appearance by all the remaining living Doctors. I realize that time has passed and that seeing the Doctors older might interfere with our memories of them (since they're all ageless on the DVD releases), but I still think it would have been fun to see the Doctor run into some of his previous selves from the classic series run. Leave it to Big Finish to fill in the gap with a year of connected audio stories, a series of adventures from the audio Doctors centered around the year 1963 and the jewel in the crown, "The Light at the End," featuring all the remaining classic series Doctors and their companions in a huge, sprawling, convoluted and utterly enjoyable adventures that celebrates the fiftieth anniversary in style. The story even manages to find passable imitators of those Doctors no longer with us so we really can have a sprawling story featuring each of the first eight Doctors in a rousing adventures. Interestingly, the story centers around November 1963 and several adventures by various Doctors all converging together. The script has just enough continuity nods and Easter eggs to the classic era, all while managing to tell a solid little tale. Of course, a lot of my enjoyment of this story could be the nostalgia factor alone and the realization that this is as close as we'll get to the Doctors getting back together for one last reunion before we push on to the sixtieth anniversary.

    The Light at the End hangs on a gimmick -- get all 8 Doctors from the classic era together for one rousing adventure -- and it succeeds! Baker, Davison, Baker, McCoy, and McGann are all together, along with companions Leela, Nyssa, Peri, Ace, and Charley. Any worries I had that some would be short-changed were not realized. Each of them gets plenty of time in the spotlight, playing off each other, their companions, and finally The Master (Geoffrey Beevers version).

Each of them gets plenty of time in the spotlight, playing off each other, their companions, and finally The Master (Geoffrey Beevers version). As for the first three Doctors? They're in there, too. Sound production exceeds Big Finish's typically high standards, including a rousing new version of the opening theme that I wouldn't mind hearing used again. The plot is a little light, as might befit a story that has to feature so many characters. The effect is sort of like a Big Loud Summer Blockbuster Movie where you go for the thrill ride action more than for plot, but the plot isn't particularly weak. It's actually kind of dark, and the aliens the Master is working with (or using or whatever) are pretty nasty. So it's dependent on the interplay of the characters to keep it light. (Four and Eight have some fantastic banter.) The Maguffin that puts the Doctor in peril is actually rather clever, and though there are plenty of little nods and references for the long-time fan, even a casual Whovian will enjoy this. It's not perfect, but I have a hard time imagining how the current TV series could come up with something better for the 50th Anniversary celebration. Well done, Big Finish! Well done!

    A 50th anniversary celebration featuring Doctors Four through Eight. The story is remarkably coherent and remains so despite incorporating a plethora of characters and cameos. The Doctors themselves take centre stage and all feel important. Definitely one of Big Finish’s better efforts.

    The Big Finish anniversary special was released a month early. What a delightful surprise! It was everything that it promised to be. A big multi-Doctor story crossing timelines and averting all kinds of catastrophes. By far my favourite parts were the ones with Tom Baker and Paul McGann. Two of my favourites together and they were so funny. They really were a great combination. It was nice to see the other doctors working together and even to see the hints with Hartnell, Troughton and Pertwee as The Big Finish anniversary special was released a month early.

I must admit that I was a little disappointed that the companions were written out quite so quickly. Leela meeting Charlie was brilliant. As was Ace addressing all the Doctors. I would have liked to have seen more of that but then I suppose the cast was just too unwieldy if some didn't go. I think this is the big multi-doctor story people were wanting for the 50th. Though it is a little bit of a shame it couldn't cross into new who and bring the three more recent doctors in as well. (Though how they would have had room for them I have no ideas.) While not as emotional as Dark Eyes or as clever as Gallifrey VI it was the perfect way for Big Finish to celebrate the 50th. I just wish I could have afforded the special edition.

    The Light at the End was AMAZING. 100x better than the last anniversary special they did at Big Finish (Zagreus, which I did enjoy as well but not nearly as much as this). It was great to see all of the Doctors' interacting, especially 4 and 8 who were just wonderful together. I just love when Doctors and Companions meet past and future Doctors' and Companions, it's always so wonderful.

Unlike what a lot of people have said though, I thought the plot held together extremely well, especially for a large multi-doctor story, and I can see myself re-listening to this quite a few times in the next few weeks, theres just so much to catch and it is just great. (Also on the sidenote, not related to the story but the theme at the beginning and end of the audio is one of my all time favorites, it is epic)

    I for one love multiple-Doctor stories because the way the Doctors play off of each other is fun. 8 making fun of 4's scarf, for example. Each manages to bring their unique traits to the table for this story, and although it's slow in a few places, overall it was a great story. Colin Baker, who always seems to express The Doctor's outrage with he Time Lords, does so admirably here.

    A decently fun anniversary adventure. The first half is a bit slow, but things pick up in the second half. The Fifth Doctor and especially the Sixth Doctor have the most prominent roles, though all the classic Doctors have their moments. I was particularly pleased they found a way to include (view spoiler)[the first three Doctors (hide spoiler)] . I was hoping for a bit more inter-Doctor banter than we got, however.

    It's traditional that decadal anniversaries of Doctor Who feature multi-Doctor stories. For the 50th, on TV we got The Day of the Doctor, while on audio, we got this. (Interestingly, according to the sleeve notes, the producers had decided not to bother this time round, but Tom Baker apparently talked them into it, making this the first multi-Doctor story he'd properly appeared in).

For the 50th, on TV we got The Day of the Doctor, while on audio, we got this. (Interestingly, according to the sleeve notes, the producers had decided not to bother this time round, but Tom Baker apparently talked them into it, making this the first multi-Doctor story he'd properly appeared in). A time distortion emanating from when else but the time and date of the TV show's first broadcast traps the TARDIS, pulling it into a pocket universe. As is clear from the cover, the story primarily involves the fourth to eighth Doctors, but there are also cameos from the first three, using a plot device that means we can never quite hear them clearly (thus disguising the fact that they aren't voiced by their original actors). The story is a complex one, as one might expect, and quite a bit better than the novel The Eight Doctors that kicked off the BBC Books range back in 1997 - or, indeed, the audio story Zagreus, which celebrated the 40th anniversary. Since he's also on the cover, it's no surprise that the Master is involved in it all, but the story also brings in interstellar arms dealers and events at a suburban house in Hampshire. Despite the large number of characters, all of the Doctors get a good share of the spotlight, although the five featured companions are a little more side-lined. Quite why it's all happening is rather harder to follow at times, although it does all make sense in the end. Along the way there are plenty of nods to past stories which, in fairness, may reduce the appeal to casual fans or those who follow the new series alone - they're not essential to the plot, but part of the fun is spotting them. Naturally, there's also the enjoyment of seeing different Doctors and companions interact, which, again, does require you to be familiar with who they all are. Normally, BF releases use the theme tune of the relevant era, but, in the case of this pan-era release, they've created a new variation. It's rather good, and to my mind, feels like a mixture of the themes for the Eighth and Tenth Doctors. That it's two one-hour episodes, rather than four half-hour ones, also adds to the "special" feel. Is it perfect? No, but it's everything you want from a big multi-Doctor team up, a story that's clearly celebrating the show down the years. It's aimed straight at the long-term fan, and merely the fact that it unites so many of the 'classic' Doctors, still played by their original actors, is a delight in itself. One for the fans, to be sure, but definitely a good one.

    Wow, just wow, this was mind-blowing, certainly worth waiting for 4 years to listen to! This audio is just perfection, featuring the first 8th Doctors and their companions which are beautifully written going up against The Master for the sake of The Doctor's past and future!

    I love the Big Finish Dr. Who audio books and I especially love the ones where they bring together multiple Doctors. This was their 50th anniversary special released in 2013 featuring five Doctors and their companions. It also made nice references to the earlier Doctors and their companions. I particularly liked how the different stories all eventually merged together at the very end. If you are a Classic Dr. Who fan, this is for you.

You've got the Doctor's foe The Master, and for an anniversary story, of COURSE this makes perfect sense! You've got all sorts of "timey-whimey" going on. I felt that the story was pretty well paced out, it wasn't too slow, wasn't too fast, and most importantly, it held my attention. My favorite bits had to be the interaction between the Fourth & Eighth Doctors, my two favorite Doctors. I love the callbacks to the first three Doctors, though they are no longer with us, and I felt the voice actors for them were fairly believable. They also did it in a way that I thought was nice - they weren't "up front" in the audio, they were almost ghostly...well, you'd have to listen to know what I mean, but it works! Overall, this is probably one of the best Doctor Who stories I've had to pleasure of hearing, and I'm glad the Classic Doctors were recognized for the Fiftieth in this way!

    Multi-Doctor stories can get pretty messy. You've got a lot of big personalities all trying to play the same guy, tons of companions and a whole bunch of continuity to try and crow-bar into a pretty small space. This one was handled pretty well. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the story itself was. It was interesting enough while leaving room for the Doctors to run the show and only a little contrived. It does get a bit repetative at points.

They had a good rapport. That was different. The little sound bites of the first three Doctors was a very nice touch. It'll make you smile. The companions aren't really much more than scenery in this one but I guess you had to expect something like that somewhere in a story with this much going on. Over all, quite enjoyable and a fitting tribute to a great story.

    This is the multi Doctor story we had all hoped for with the 50th anniversary, shame its on audio. The Master has a plan to kill the Doctor, all the Doctors, and they have to stop him. I don't want to say anymore as that will spoil the fun. All the Doctors get their chance to shine, and there's some really good cameos.

    I always like multi Doctor adventures. It was an ambitious idea to try and have eight doctors participate in this story in some form or other. The story mainly features Doctors 4-8. But, Doctors 1-3 are also represented. In a nice touch, and an homage to the series history, the First Doctor is voiced by first Doctor Companion Ian prtrayed by William Russell nad the Second Doctor is voiced by companion Jamie portrayed by Frazer Hines.

    Amazing 50th anniversary story for the series. Doctors 1-8 face off against the Master (though 1-3 are just old clips repurposed for the new story due to the actors, sadly, no longer being with us) and a plot to erase them all from existence one by one. FAR better than the actual, official, BBC 50th anniversary. But, then, I'm not a fan of the Moffat era of Doctor Who. The guy is okay at one off stories here and there, but as the show runner, he's just completely ruining the series. Anyway, you Amazing 50th anniversary story for the series.

    This is how the 50th anniversary is done! All eight of the classic Doctors are represented, and pretty equally. The first three Doctors never fully "materialize" but they are still represented (they managed to get pretty decent imitators, including Frazer Hines doing his excellent Second Doctor imitation). Each Doctor has a part to play in figuring out the mystery and defeating the Master.

    This was Big Finish's 50th anniversary story, and it is brilliant. It includes the first eight Doctors, plus Leela, Nyssa, Peri, Ace, and Charley. Since I'm still catching up on Classic Who, this was the first time I'd met any of those companions except for Charley. The story was... perfect. Eight Doctors, the Master, the CIA, possible destruction of the TARDIS itself, and a perfectly constructed causal loop that the Doctors managed to break, because of course they did they're the Doctor.

    Fun audio (only) book. Plot was meh, but it was true to the classic sounds and characters of the original series. I, like other fans, was drawn in by all the voice acting talent that they managed to pull together for this 50th anniversary effort: - Doctors: Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann - Companions: Louise Jameson (Leela), Sarah Sutton (Nyssa), Nicola Bryant (Peri), Sophie Aldred (Ace), India Fisher (Charley Pollard) - and Geoffrey Beevers (The Master)

    I was drawn to re listen to The Light At the End because it was actually the first Big Finish Doctor Who adventure I'd experienced and now, as an experienced listener, I wanted to give it another go. This was Big Finish's contribution to the 50th anniversary of the show and is better than I remember it. I've actually given it another star. You cannot beat the first eight Doctors interacting. Highly recommended.

    Produced as part of the fiftieth anniversary celebration of Doctor Who, this thrilling full-cast audio-drama features Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann as the Doctor with appearances from companions across the years of the original series. For fans of the series, that should be all you need to know. But the narrative itself is pure classic Whovian fun filled with hi-jinks and daring-do. All you need is your mind’s eye and you’re good to go.

    Released as a celebration of 50 years of Doctor Who this story features the first eight Doctors with their companions and the Master. Probably the most successful multi-Doctor audio so far. A simple concept but with many threads and clear well-written dialogue. If you are a fan of the Doctor Who television programme and want to enjoy an audio adventure this is one the very best.

    The mind blowing 50th anniversary special that BBC tv could never have given us. Doctors 4-8 interact beautifully (especially Four and Eight), and numbers 1-3 are brought to brief life by some very good impressions.

    I'll have to rate it again when I relisten to the physical copy - but right now I'm riding pretty high on fangirling. Multi-Doctor story. All eight classic Doctors, yes, even the first three get to play along. Feel the fanlove that went into this production.

    I finished the actually story some time ago so my memory of the story isn't so strong. Overall, what more could you ask for from an anniversary story? Five different doctors, a smattering of companions and some nice surprises. Great fun and well worth it.

    BF have done themselves proud with their 50th anniversary special. Great storyline with several twists and turns and loved 1-8 working together and the different incarnations interacting. The companions were used well too, and a nice nod to Elizabeth Sladen toward the end. Highly recommended.

    The end felt like a rather simple solution to the problem, as if they just hit a reset button. But it still was lovely to hear all the Big Finish Doctors cooperating in one adventure. None of them were shortchanged here.
