    Just ordered this with my June Audible credit. It’s worth the £7.99 alone just for Tom’s excellent reading of Morbius, but all together it’s a great collection too.

    For future sets, I reckon a Gallifrey one is being planned as it would explain why Deadly Assassin was left off the Master set (maybe War Games, Deadly Assassin, Invasion of Time, Arc of Infinity, Five Doctors).

    A Dalek set featuring all the John Peel novelisations would be nice (Chase, Mission to the Unknown, Daleks Master Plan, Power, and Evil), but these sets look to be trying to be multi author/era, and Power and Evil don’t even have audiobooks yet, so if there is a Dalek set it’s likely to be a different selection.

      Arc of infinity has yet to be done and 5 doctors is only 6 months old. Might be seen as too new to be put in a set. As for Daleks I can see them do the first 3 dalek stories 1 of the pertwee ones and genesis.

    I have found joining Audible to be a great, convenient and (using credits) a cheap way of listening to and collecting these sets and stories, so can highly recommend.

    I can see that it is going to become very hard to differentiate the BBC Audios from the Big Finish ones.

      What are the differences?

      They are two completely different companies

      I think OP is referring to the cover formats, with the logo stretched across the top, writers on the bottom etc.

      ???? What no
      Big Finish will say big Finish on them and clearly you can tell as they aren’t just one picture on the front

      The big finish logo is tiny now compared to the bbc one
