The Finished Product #6

The Finished Product #6 is out, and the latest issue of this Big Finish-centric fanzine looks at the audios given away with Doctor Who Magazine over the past few years.

The issue kicks off with a look at the relationship between Big Finish and Doctor Who Magazine, speaking to many of the people who have been involved over the years, including Gary Russell, Alan Barnes, Conrad Westmaas and Tom Spilsbury – and several more….

We then move on to look at the DWM exclusives which haven’t been covered by The Inside Story book, starting with The Veiled Leopard, moving on to Cuddlesome - including a plot breakdown of the Audio Visuals original which many of you won’t have heard – and then The Mists of Time (including writer Jonny Morris’ plot proposals and how they developed into the finished play) and Freakshow.

The Companion Chronicles specials continue with The Three Companions, before the issue is rounded off with interviews on how Spare Parts was developed into The Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel, with exclusive interviews with Marc Platt, Gary Russell and Tom Macrae – plus a polite note from Russell T Davies declining to be interviewed!

If you’re interested in obtaining a copy, The Finished Product #6 is just £2.50 in the UK, £4.50 overseas, and payment can be made by PayPal to If you don’t have PayPal, drop him a line and to make alternative arrangements.
