    Quick question: will the livestream be taken down or will all the audios be up on YouTube permanently?

      I doubt it, as it would take money away from Big Finish and they need the sales to keep going. They might keep the video messages and links up but I think the stories themselves would go.

      Not necessarily, many of these stories are available for free on their website/spotify or are really cheap so it could be permanent

    Happy Birthday Big Finish!

    How can it be twenty years? Impossible!

    At the time the excitement of hearing new adventures of ‘Doctor Who’ with the original actors was beyond thrilling. For me the highlights along the way have been original stories for the Eighth Doctor and new adventures for the Fourth Doctor. Long may they last and my shelves groan. Looking forward to ‘The Legacy of Time’.

    Thanks for all the fun!
