Big Finish audio story The Light at the End will feature multiple Doctors and a number of old friends...

While details of the BBC's TV plans to mark Doctor Who's 50th anniversary are still largely under wraps, Big Finish has confirmed its audio adventure celebration.

Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann are all set to voice their Doctors in Doctor Who: The Light at the End, a 100-minute story that will see multiple Doctors facing "imminent destruction", to be released in November.

Here's what writer/director Nicholas Briggs had to say:

“We wanted to do a proper, fully-fledged multi-Doctor story for this very special occasion, and it’s wonderful that all the surviving Doctors threw themselves behind the project so enthusiastically. That’s not to say the first three Doctors don’t appear – we wanted to pay homage to the whole history of the classic series.” All the surviving Doctors you say Briggs? That'll do us nicely.

Geoffrey Beevers has also been confirmed as returning to voice the Master, alongside the Doctor's regular companions Louise Jameson (Leela), Sarah Sutton (Nyssa), Nicola Bryant (Peri), Sophie Aldred (Ace) and India Fisher (Charley Pollard). Producer David Richardson has also teased "...a number of appearances from some much-cherished old friends from the TV series."
