This has been a very busy summer for Big Finish. They’ve announced plans to do audios based off The Avengers as well as an old Terry Nation TV series called The Survivors. They’ve announced the return of Flip to the Sixth Doctor audios, and the return of Sil. These are all good things, but for the longest time, there’s been one thing I really, really wanted with my Big Finish audios.
I wanted Adric.
Well, good news from Big Finish today, confirming a rumor I’d picked up a week or two ago. Yes, after years of saying no, Matthew Waterhouse, Adric himself, has finally said yes. Beginning in 2014, he will start appearing in audio stories playing Adric alongside the Fifth Doctor, Tegan and Nyssa. It is truly a glorious day.
We shall have to wait to see the other rumor I’ve picked up, that we could be looking at a season of Fourth Doctor and Adric audios, comes to fruition.
Meantime, all we need now is Jackie Lane to pop up as Dodo and we will have a complete set.
