Big Finish: What Are The Top 5 Eighth Doctor Audio Adventures?

Following last month’s series of polls, Big Finish has revealed the top 5 Eighth Doctor Monthly Adventures – and to celebrate, you can download them for half price!

This was the fourth and final Doctor Who – The Monthly Adventures poll, in which Big Finish listeners voted on their favourite episodes from each Doctor featured in the range, via the Radio Times website.

25 years after he made his UK television debut, fans voted for their favourite Eighth Doctor titles. Here were the winners:

  • The Chimes of Midnight by Robert Shearman (February 2002), starring Paul McGann (the Eighth Doctor) & India Fisher (Charley).
  • The Silver Turk by Marc Platt (October 2011), starring Paul McGann (the Eighth Doctor) & Julie Cox (Mary Shelley).
  • The Natural History of Fear by Jim Mortimore (February 2004), starring Paul McGann (the Eighth Doctor), India Fisher (Charley) & Conrad Westmaas (C’rizz).
  • Scherzo by Robert Shearman (December 2003), starring Paul McGann (the Eighth Doctor) & India Fisher (Charley).
  • Seasons of Fear by Paul Cornell & Caroline Symcox (March 2002), starring Paul McGann (the Eighth Doctor) & India Fisher (Charley).

Download discounts on these top five Monthly Adventures, including bundle deals, are available now, for a limited time, over at the Big Finish site. Offers expire at 23:59 (GMT) on 7th June 2021.

Executive Editor of the Radio Times website, Morgan Jeffrey said:

“The results are in and, capping off this collaboration between Big Finish and, Doctor Who fans have named these five entries from the award-winning Monthly Range as their all-time Eighth Doctor favourites – from 2002’s The Chimes of Midnight to 2011’s The Silver Turk, this quintet offers a variety of moods, styles and companions, but their one unifying factor is Paul McGann’s superb lead performance… and how appropriate to be celebrating that 25 years after the Eighth Doctor made his debut on UK television.” 

Big Finish was recently awarded a Guinness World Record for the longest-running science fiction audio play series, after releasing a brand-new Doctor Who monthly adventure for 275 consecutive months.

Though the Monthly Adventures have now ended, the audio company has revealed plans for throughout 2022.
