AAAAAAH JOHN HURT IS WORKING FOR BIG FINISH AND WE'RE GETTING TWELVE NEW WAR DOCTOR STORIES!!! PLUS A TIME WAR PREQUEL BOX WITH PAUL MCGANN!!!

(Details here with slightly less all-caps flailing.)

I think I'm even more excited by this than I am by the rumors about a Tennant & Tate audio reunion, partly because I've always assumed Tennant would return to Big Finish when time and licensing allowed, and partly because this is officially announced and at least partially recorded. (Although, this also explains why Big Finish haven't put out a press release to squash/confirm that story. Clearly they have a plan for how they're timing the post-2005 series news.)

I'm not generally a fan of Nicholas Briggs as an author - I don't think he's bad, we're just interested in very different things about Doctor Who - but having Hurt back is so delightful that I don't care if Briggs ends up writing most of it. And we already know John Dorney, Phil Mulryne and Matt Fitton are writing the second box, which is likely to be much more my speed.

My greatest wish for these (beyond their mere existence) is that we finally get to hear what happened to Romana, Leela, Narvin, Brax and the rest of the Gallifrey cast during the Time War. I'm sincerely hoping that the answer is 'they're all frozen in time waiting for the Doctor to find and defrost them' but I'd love to hear the details.

Also: more Rassilon! Even if they can't afford Timothy Dalton and John Hurt at the same time, there's nothing to say he didn't regenerate some time between his resurrection and when we saw him.
