[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. ;)

Doctor Who won three awards at last night's British Academy Television Awards, including the award for best drama series and the Pioneer Audience Award, which

aims to honour the show that has helped define television in 2005, receiving critical acclaim through its original approach and capturing the public's imagination. The award is unique as it's the only accolade that has been decided by the public vote and looks set to become one of the most coveted in the industry.

Billie Piper accepted the Best Drama Series award, accompanied by a dalek.
