November 23rd 1963 proves to be a significant day in the lives of all eight Doctors…

It’s the day that Bob Dovie’s life is ripped apart…

It’s also a day that sets in motion a catastrophic chain of events which forces the first eight incarnations of the Doctor to fight for their very existence. As a mysterious, insidious chaos unfolds within the TARDIS, the barriers of time break apart… From suburban England through war-torn alien landscapes and into a deadly, artificial dimension, all these Doctors and their companions must struggle against the power of an unfathomable, alien technology.


From the very beginning, it is clear that the Master is somehow involved. By the end, for the Doctors, there may only be darkness.

This is a five-disc limited Special Edition in deluxe premium packaging, which includes a stunning array of professional photos of the cast.

Discs 1 and 2 – The Light at the End
Disc 3 – The Making of The Light at the End (70 minute documentary)
Disc 4 – This is Doctor Who at Big Finish (70 minute documentary)
Disc 5 – Doctor Who – The Companion Chronicles: The Revenants performed by William Russell as Ian

    BIG FINISH have started sending this out early. If you have purchased it (I got the CD Special edition) you can download it now. It’s really rather good too – Definately no ZAGREUS
    Apologies if I posted to the wrong section

    Looking at the cover of this closley and to be honest, I find it very very poor.

    The inamge had CGI renders which are okay, buit my main complaint is that proper headshots have been photoshopped onto these bodies giving them a wierd look.

    Colin Baker doesn’t fare much better.

    The McGann Doctor comes off especially badly where the head shot is all out of porportion and at the wrong angle making this a very poor example of what can be done with modern day techniques.

    Why is BF not listed as the main supplier? Seems strange not to.

    Just out of interest – is the case like a DVD, as that’s how it looks?

    I’ve pre-ordered this (the limited edition version) and I really don’t like the cover image! I mean, it’s a nice novelty image, but I prefer and wish that they had used the standard edition cover. Sorry Big Finish.

    Literally considering buying this on the release I have £24 left from yesterdays birthday shopping!

    Start saving and it will be worth the wait!!!! 🙂


    September 15th, 2013 - 12:08pm

    Wow…. This looks amazing. Especially as the collector edition looks like a DVD box too, oh my I must have this…

    I ordered this a while back. It looks great.

    Does anyone think this version will be available to buy from the 50th anniversary convention at Excel in November? I know there is no way of knowing 100%, but at a guess what would you say?

    • seanwray1

      September 14th, 2013 - 8:28pm

      I was wondering the same thing :/ everything at the convention will be exclusive and limited to the shop on site

    • drjakeyoung

      September 14th, 2013 - 8:31pm

      In that case, buying everything i want there is going to murder my wallet :/

    • seanwray1

      September 14th, 2013 - 8:32pm

      I know the feeling 🙁 what day are you going?

    • drjakeyoung

      September 14th, 2013 - 8:37pm

      Saturday! Thought i wasn’t going at all as by the time i went onto the site (half an our after they went on sale) they were completely out! But after a few annoying emails i managed to get a couple of tickets 🙂

    • seanwray1

      September 15th, 2013 - 6:47am

      Well done mate 🙂 I barely got a Sunday ticket and I was on the sight an hour before they went live! I’ve ordered the t-shirt with the tickets too but I’m annoyed that we don’t know what it looks like

    • drjakeyoung

      September 15th, 2013 - 1:40pm

      I know the feeling. Was hoping to get a Matt smith photograph, but they had ran out straight away. Did you know Graeme Norton will be there?

    • seanwray1

      September 15th, 2013 - 2:03pm

      Hopefully well still get autographs from the other actors and yeah I heard, he’s doing a radio broadcast 🙂

    • drjakeyoung

      September 15th, 2013 - 2:44pm

      Hopefully yea! I emailed them and asked how people are supposed to get the autographs, and they said that you get them on the day, rather than pre booking them. Wow, i wand all the doctors and companions autographs, this is going to cost a lot! (as well as the hotel and lots of items i am going to buy there)Hope i have enough, as i have been saving up since March and should have about £300 by the time i go! Hope you have a good time and get everything you want!

    • seanwray1

      September 16th, 2013 - 6:49pm

      Thanks for letting me know about that, I’m happy to hear well get autographs now. And you have a great time to 🙂

    I’ve ordered both the vinyl and the collectors edition. Can’t wait for Them!

    September 13th, 2013 - 4:17pm

    How many of these are? 🙂

    • videogamemad00

      September 13th, 2013 - 8:45pm

      What do you mean? It’s a one off special but there are 3 versions of it (standard, collectors and vinyl)

    • doctorwhomad

      September 14th, 2013 - 7:22pm

      No, I mean, it says it’s a limited collectors edition. I was wondering what the limited edition number size is.

    • videogamemad00

      September 14th, 2013 - 7:30pm

      Oh right 😳 I can’t help you there, sorry.

    • doctorwhomad

      That’s okay. Thanks. 🙂

    Is this the official cover or just a promo image they used?

  • Some bloke

    January 27th, 2013 - 3:26pm

    pre-ordered it!!! 🙂

    Will the CD’s have different covers depending on the Edition?

    • booboo

      January 26th, 2013 - 11:23am

      dont know yet

    • Son of Skaro

      September 14th, 2013 - 7:54pm

      If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say the standard would come in a normal case with the same artwork, Just not lenticular.

    Pinch me and pinch me NOW! This is every fans dream, oh let it be good and the thought that Tom, yes Tom, will play alongside the other Doctors! If theres any justice they’ll have a massive photo-shoot as well. The sadness is that though they’ll be there in spirit, not to have Bill, Pat, Jon, Jacquie, Lis, Carrie, Mary, Ian and Nick there will be the downer.

  • Professor When

    January 10th, 2013 - 7:36am

    I know they have this ‘Destiny of the Doctors’ thing, but surely they could have a CD where all 11 doctors meet up, instead of just the 8? 🙂

    • Some bloke

      January 10th, 2013 - 9:17am

      big finish only have license over the first 8 doctors, and this production isn’t being made with bbc, just big finish

    • Professor When

      January 13th, 2013 - 10:15am

      Ahh, I see 🙂

    • Cyber lords

      September 15th, 2013 - 9:17am

      And 9 probably wouldn’t want to appear anyway

  • drjakeyoung

    January 9th, 2013 - 10:44pm

    i will get this for Christmas later this year, god, already thinking about next Christmas!

  • The TARDIS

    January 9th, 2013 - 8:52pm

    This sounds amazing, definitely getting this rather than the standard release! Although it could be a 3 disc adventure, couldn’t it? It’s just the same length as a normal Big Finish release… Anyway, getting it regardless!

  • Cyberking281

    January 9th, 2013 - 4:36pm

    This sounds AWESOME!, but is it a bonus story from the “destiny of the doctor” series?

    • Some bloke

      January 9th, 2013 - 5:04pm

      No, its a story of its own, made by just big finish, not big finish and the bbc

    • Jelly Baby

      January 22nd, 2013 - 9:33am

      Destiny of the Doctor is a collaboration between Big Finish and AUDIOGO not the BBC. The BBC have yet to announce their plans for the 50th anniversary

    • Some bloke

      January 27th, 2013 - 3:35pm

      ok, i just meant the bbc because audiogo publish the audios under the BBC audiobooks brand.
