Well, this author at least never saw this coming…
Previously only the topic of myth and teasing references, the Time War becomes the setting for a new series from Big Finish, starring John Hurt as the War Doctor, and Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor.
Following the proven format of the popular Dark Eyes boxsets, and starting this December, Big Finish have lined up four boxsets starring John Hurt as the War Doctor as introduced during the 50th anniversary. The Eighth Doctor will appear in a boxset in 2017 exploring the early days of the War prior to the events of Night of the Doctor.
The first boxset, Only the Monstrous, is out in a few short months in December 2015, followed by Infernal Devices in February and 2 more volumes currently in pre-production.
