We’ve had the past three Doctors, and this week step up Paul McGann as the Radio Times reveals the most voted for main range titles. The winner is no surprise, I’m pleased at the second and thought the fourth might have come second. Details below (spoiler — look at the picture!)
Eighth Doctor poll winners
The top five Eighth Doctor stories as chosen by listeners of Big Finish audio dramas have been revealed – and, for a limited time, they are available to download for half price!
The results are in for the fourth and final Radiotimes.com Doctor Who – The Monthly Adventures poll, in which Big Finish listeners (and Radio Times readers) decide which are their favourite episodes from each Doctor featured in the range.
This week, 25 years after he made his UK television debut, fans voted for their favourite Eighth Doctor titles with the winners as follows:
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)

Executive Editor of RadioTimes.com Morgan Jeffrey said: “The results are in and, capping off this collaboration between Big Finish and RadioTimes.com, 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
