[Geek] Doctor Who audio drama goodness whee!

So, a while ago, I blew more money than I should have ordering two CDs from the UK. (Especially 'blew more than I should have,' having learned since then that there's an American reseller who would've been cheaper. Ah, well.) The other day, they arrived.

I now am in possession of my two favorite Eighth Doctor audio serials once more: Storm Warning (the first Eighth Doctor adventure post-movie in the audio serial continuity, introducing Charley Pollard), and The Chimes of Midnight (considered by many to be one of the best, and creepiest, Doctor Who serials period).

I spent a chunk of time converting the multi-CD radio-style dramas to iTunes/iPod audiobook format (nicely split into the component episodes), and am muchly pleased with the result. This both makes it easier to listen to, AND means I won't have to order copies AGAIN. (First copy of Storm Warning, stolen. Second copy of Storm Warning, lost during a move. Third copy is bloody well being backed up digitally.)

Next, I really still do need to get another copy of Minuet in Hell, which I only ever heard a friend's copy of (and never heard the final episode of), and which has my favorite recurring Doctor Who ally (Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart). I'd also like to get all the ones leading up to the Zagreus saga (including NeverLand, where Romana appears), which I've never heard. So many to catch up on since I last heard.

I'm sane and sensible about most of my fandoms, a casual fan. But, Doctor Who? Noooooot so much. ;)

I found myself liking Mickey despite my first intention to the otherwise though I did think the ending was a little too cliche (and obvious, I think the entire audience was rolling their eyes at the doctor, even the five years on the fear factor page figured out what'd happen).
