I'm kicking myself for missing the Shelved episode about this in December - I never knew about it, and just read it here on your forum.
Now, personally, I'm a huge Douglas Adams fan, and loved the stories he wrote for the Doctor, so when Big Finish produced a full audio adventure of Shada and released it on CD, I snapped it up. At the time, I was disappointed that Tom didn't get to play the Doctor but figured it was because he wasn't on contract with Big Finish whereas Paul McGann was.
But now, again here on your forum, I have heard about the Hornets Nest CDs that are being released. Wow, I want some of that! So are they Big Finish productions or is someone else doing these? I think it's a massive shame that if this has been possible, someone couldn't have pulled their finger out and got Tom to do Shada.
We had John Leeson as K9 and Lalla Ward as Romana, backed up by a stunning cast, but it just didn't work with Paul McGann playing the Doctor.
So what do you lot think?
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. Douglas Adams.
