    What I've done in approaching them is to try to approach it like thematic seasons. I find it works well both because that's the format I'm used to with the TV series and because that's how the 'main ranges' later on go.

    My approach:
    Spoiler:
    Specials
    The movie
    Shada

    Mary
    Mary's Story
    The Silver Turk
    The Witch from the Well
    Army of Death

    Charley
    Storm Warning
    Sword of Orion
    The Stones of Venice
    Minuet in Hell
    Invaders from Mars
    The Chimes of Midnight
    Living Legend
    Seasons of Fear
    Embrace the Darkness
    The Time of the Daleks
    Solitaire
    Neverland
    Zagreus

    Divergent Universe
    Scherzo
    The Creed of the Kromon
    The Natural History of Fear
    The Twilight Kingdom
    Faith Stealer
    The Last
    Caerdroida
    The Next Life

    Moving On
    Terror Firma
    Scaredy Cat
    Other Lives
    Time Works
    Something Inside
    Memory Lane
    Absolution
    The Girl Who Never Was

    NEDA Year 1
    Blood of the Daleks, Part 1
    Blood of the Daleks, Part 2
    Horror of Glam Rock
    Immortal Beloved
    Phobos
    No More Lies
    Human Resources, Part 1
    Human Resources, Part 2

    NEDA Year 2
    Dead London
    Max Warp
    Brave New Town
    The Skull of Sobek
    Grand Theft Cosmos
    The Zygon Who Fell to Earth
    Sisters of the Flame
    The Vengeance of Morbius

    NEDA Year 3
    Orbis
    Hothouse
    The Beast of Orlok
    Wirrn Dawn
    The Scapegoat
    The Cannibalists
    The Eight Truths
    Worldwide Web

    NEDA Year 4
    Death in Blackpool
    An Earthly Child
    Situation Vacant
    Nevermore
    The Book of Kells
    Deimos
    The Resurrection of Mars
    Relative Dimensions
    The Four Doctors
    Prisoner of the Sun
    Lucie Miller
    To the Death

    Special - Mary's Story (from the other Doctor's POV)

    Dark Eyes
    The Great War
    Fugitives
    Tangled Web
    X and the Daleks

    Dark Eyes II

    Dark Eyes III

    Dark Eyes IV


    Special - The Night of the Doctor



    I know that there's a lot of prose and comics that I'm skipping, but there's something nicely 'authentic' about being able to hear Paul McGann speaking in the role.

    I think I've got my chronology nailed down right--I've tried to do a lot of sorting based on Tardis Wikia articles, sticking one-off stories in their appropriate spots relative to the regular 'seasons.' And obviously there's plenty of story to tell between the upcoming Dark Eyes stories and the 50th minisode. But hey, it works for now

    Oh, and a question!

    The New Eighth Doctor Adventures line (the Lucie stories), I've noticed that they changed the intro so that some knob is reading the title/actors/etc and speaking over the DW theme song. Considering ALL of that information is right there on the cover art and how much I love the theme song, I find this incredibly annoying. Do they stop doing this at some point?

    They do - what you have to remember is that the 8th Doctor Adventures range was pretty much designed FOR BBC Radio 4, where as most other ranges were designed to be purchased. Consequently, they needed to present the cast information and title somehow...

    I've just finished the 'Cyberman' spin off series 1.

    It is amazing. Every bit as good as The Dalek Empire saga, and in some ways better. I would highly recommend series 1 to anyone - and it's quite cheap at the moment. It's so wonderful executed by all those involved that it really draws you into the story. I'm beginning to think that (bar the 8th Doctor offerings) Big Finish's best work is in fact their spin off material....

    EDIT:

    If anyone wants to get into these, listen to the 8th Doctor Audio "Sword of Orion" first, before starting with the Cyberman series.

    I'm thinking of getting my wages sent directly to Big Finish. It's probably easier that way.

    You and me both...

    I started properly collecting them when I was in Afghanistan last, they were easy to download via the MOD provided internet and served me nicely after I'd run out of ripped Doctor Who eps on my hard drive. I've spent far too much of my Ops Bonus on the damn things, but they're SO addictive! I love them! (on a side note, just for something a bit different - I downloaded Big Finish's 'Beyond the Grave', a non-DW 'Ghostwatch' style 'live' episode, which was great, and also their first full cast SG1 audio drama, also great! Has Cliff Simon and everything!).

    I'm loving the experimental ones... 'Live 34' is a great and innovative offering!

    So at some point I intend to go through the Seventh Doctor series of audios.... I've gone through his article on the Tardis Wikia and come up with (what appears to be) a reasonable chronology of episodes, but I'm a bit stuck because there are a number of stories which are not referenced in his article and I'm not sure where to place them beyond 'well let's try here and see how that goes.'

    Since you, FOB (you'll always be FOB to me ), Alan, and possibly Blen are the ones likely to be most familiar with the Big Finish material I thought I'd ask for a little input. If you have any, of course, no obligation obviously

    Now obviously I doubt I'll get to all of these, but it's nice to be prepared!

    I must admit, I am *very* impressed with your chronologiscing (new word) of it all, that's a seriously good effort there!

    I must admit, I cannot help with the ST or CC chronicles stories, because - rightly or wrongly - I just can't sink into the Doctor Who audio BOOKS. Gave it a try, just isn't working for me - hearing the tale read rather than voice acted.

    As for the other stories - Sirens of Time, I believe, is often implied to be one of the last 7th Doctor adventures. In my mind, it comes right before the Movie. However - doctorwhoreviews.net has it placed inbetween Project Lazarus and Valhalla.

    I believe Bang-Bang-a-boom has been placed too late, as it's a Mel adventure and needs to be shifted much earlier. DWR would suggest that the correct order should be Red, Paradise Towers, BBAM, Flip-Flop and then Delta and the Bannermen directly.

    http://www.doctorwhoreviews.co.uk/Seventh%20Doctor.htm this may help, although be aware it also includes the books!

    Now there's an interesting observation. I don't think I've actually listened to any ST or CC material so I hadn't even landed on that observation yet. I suspect my reaction would be largely the same as yours -- I like the format of dialogue- and incidental music-only, and the one time there was a narrative line (I forget which story, something about a note in a bottle) -- I found it very jarring. This would also serve the dual benefit of allowing me to skip a whole heap of the ones that I can't figure out where to place

    Happy to help! I'm glad you're enjoying them! I'm also glad I've sold someone on 'Beyond the Grave' too. Part of me thinks I should be getting a commission from Big Finish sales!

    Ladies & Gents,

    I've just come away from my latest audio drama session thoroughly in awe....

    If you listen to only ONE single 6th Doctor audio, be sure it's 'The Nowhere Place'. There are not the words to explain this one - you have to hear it. Set aside 2 hours, turn the lights out and just enjoy. It is... to use entirely right terms.... epic.

    http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/...here-place-250





    Whilst I'm on the subject of creepiness.... though not as epic, you simply *must* listen to the 7th Doctor's 'Night Thoughts'. Takes a while to warm up, but in the final two parts this becomes bloody chilling - and quite frankly - is another turn the lights off story. It is *not* child friendly. http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/night-thoughts-245

    These all sound so good!

    I need...

    1) more hours in the day to listen

    2) more money

    And oh I wish that Big Finish had such a thing as a Wish List, then I could add them & my family would know what to buy me for Christmas/birthdays.

    I don't own any Dr. Who Audio's by Big Finish... Yet...!

    But I do own...

    2 Strontium Dog adventures with Simon Pegg as Johnny Alpha.
    Vienna : The Memory Box
    All the Stargate/Stargate Atlantis Audio's.
    And a couple of their Warhammer 40k adventres.

    Team Starfist protects all. But having a fully loaded P-90 helps...

    Finished off the NEDA stuff last night ( to certain deaths I won't name here so I don't spoil anyone)...

    A fleeting thought: in the Dalek audios I've heard (Time of the, Terror Firma, Blood of the, The Four Doctors, LM/TTD), wow are they ever more menacing and terrifying than I've ever found them on TV! Chilling! Especially in Four Docs & LM/TTD.

    Another fleeting thought: I'm also very content with the 45-60m episode length they settled into for the NEDA range. My commute to/from work every day is 40-60 mins each way depending on traffic, so they're just perfect for popping onto my phone, plugging in the aux and enjoying a couple DW stories a day

    I KNOW RIGHT!? The Daleks and the Cybermen in BF are just so much... MORE than they are on TV. I whole heartedly believe Terror Firma to be one of THE best Dalek stories ever, regardless of medium.

    I must admit, I've warmed to that format. The 4 part, 2+ hr main range is beginning to feel a little bit long winded in many ways.

    Might end up pissing Digi off again here...

    But oh good lord, you simply MUST check out 'I, Davros'. I said earlier that Big Finish's BEST work is their spin off material, and I, Davros proves this to be correct.

    This is the perfect run up to Genesis of the Daleks. And though NOT a dalek story, this charters the rise of Davros, to the point where the Daleks become a reality. It's not only a TRUE 'Genesis' story for Davros, but the Daleks as well.

    After seeing the full background behind their creation... they honestly become even more unpalatable, disturbing, and abhorrent.

    http://www.bigfinish.com/ranges/released/i-davros

    It's about £15 for the subscription to all four parts. I'd really recommend this!

    (The Davros Missiion is a kind of post-word, that I've not listened to yet - but is a seperate arc).

    Finished Dark Eyes off... I liked it, though not as much as I did the NEDA range.
