Big Finish has announced a mammoth celebratory project for the Doctor Who Diamond Anniversary next year, with a cast of eight incarnations of the Doctor and a host of guest stars. To celebrate the world’s longest-running action-adventure TV show, it’s time to revisit the past and commemorate the legacy of those who came before...
Doctor Who – Once and Future
The Time War. The Doctor has been injured and brought to a Time Lord field hospital. His body glows with energy, but this is no regeneration into a future form - instead, the Doctor’s past faces begin to appear as he flits haphazardly between incarnations...
Staggering to his TARDIS, the Doctor sets out to solve the mystery of his ‘degeneration’. Who has done this to him? How? And why? From the Earth to the stars, across an array of familiar times and places, he follows clues to retrace his steps, encountering old friends and enemies along the way. Tumbling through his lives, the Doctor must stop his degeneration before he loses himself completely...
Doctor Who – Once and Future stars Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant, with dozens more guest cast still to be revealed.
Producer David Richardson said: “An astonishing array of talent has come aboard to be a part of this epic eight-hour anniversary story. It’s a huge Doctor Who party and a massive celebration that has been years in the making.”
The series will be released monthly, with parts One to Seven releasing between May and October 2023, and a final coda in November 2024.
