And no, there is no homophobic subtext to that title whatsoever.
Ah. Well, a brief update for anyone who's reading... the Big Finish spoof site is going on a hiatus for the next few weeks. Maybe more. But then, of course, it was being updated every day for two months, so come on!
Ah, that new archive site was a real inspiration, knowing that comedic dross wasn't just festering on my harddrive but out there! In Cyberspace! Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to tell Charles Daniels about it! But suddenly inspiration returned and I was churning out the spoofs like there was no tomorrow; from ones I'd always meant to do but never got round to (The One Doctor) to ones I never had any idea how to tackle (The Council of Nicea).
Since I started doing new ones for that site, I've done:
The One Doctor
The Maltese Penguin
The Dark Flame
Arrangements for War
The Roof of the World
Three's A Crowd
The Council of Nicea
Thicker Than Water
The Reaping (with the infinite help of Jared Hansen)
No Man's Land
Return of the Daleks
The inspiration and enthusiasm was going to run out sooner or later, and this, coupled with the fact there is less and less information, reviews and thought given to Big Finish means, quite simply, everything from The Settling onward was hardly given any coverage ever. Without a basic fan opinion of a story, what is there to be said? Plus, you know, I don't own the last thirty stories or so, which means I don't even have my own opinion to work on.
There are only twenty more mainstream releases to do and I'll finally have done the first 100 BF releases. Then I just need to do the 8th Doc/Lucie series, the subscriber only stories, and then... well... maybe I'll start on the AVs?
In the meantime, my reeling brain is turning its attention back to the DWADs - only seven to go and I finish the J Coburn era. First stop, Radio 2000! Next: Devinaura IV!
