Doctor Who - Big Finish Doctor Who License Renewed To 2020
Big Finish announced today that their license to make Doctor Who audio adventures has been renewed to 2020. That is great news as we will have five more years of Doctor Who adventures and spin offs. For fans of Big Finish, like myself, this is welcoming news as the stories from Big Finish are top notch and a lot of times better than the show on TV now. You can read the full press release below.
