Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: Each audio opens with the appropriate theme for each Doctor except for Eight; as the rights to the TV Movie theme are held by a separate entity, a new theme was composed. The War Doctor gets his own theme for his audios.

'''Big Finish Doctor Who''' is a long-running and ongoing audio series by Creator/BigFinish, with Creator/NicholasBriggs as the current ShowRunner. The series is written and produced by much of the regular ''Series/DoctorWho'' crew. Pretty much every single companion and villain from the TV series shows up in the episodes, (almost) always played by the original actors, in addition to many new characters. Characters whose actors are unavailable (or dead) appear in prose stories told by their friends, or at times voiced by other actors. The episodes are available both as [=CDs=] and as digital downloads.

Additionally, [[http://www.bigfinish.com/ranges/v/doctor-who---the-lost-stories The Lost Stories]] are episodes that were intended for the TV series, but never made (the stories in this range vary from scripts that were completely written before being abandoned, to plot outlines that have been adapted into complete stories). Various adaptations of existing Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse stories, such as the ''Series/DoctorWho'' stage plays or various novels, have also been recorded; there is currently an ongoing range of Literature/VirginNewAdventures adaptations. The company also publishes original tie-in novels, and used to publish Short Trips books.

Although the audios are (and always have been) officially part of the Franchise/{{Whoniverse}}, other ''Doctor Who'' media can at times contradict or overwrite the events described here, or even adapt them for the televised continuity. In the early years, Big Finish marked stories taking place in the ''Literature/VirginNewAdventures'' continuity or ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' continuity as "Side Step" episodes. It soon took on a more holistic approach, and later stories cross over into various other ''Doctor Who'' continuities without setting strict boundaries. In the interest of avoiding a dread ContinuitySnarl (considering its massive amount of interconnected ''and yet'' mutually exclusive stories), Big Finish had long since introduced the concept of the Axis of Time, which allows for different timelines to [[TheMultiverse exist independently]] of each other. This allows the company to treat all its stories as canon within their own respective timelines and universes, which it happily does, without having to worry about being contradicting (or being contradicted by) other ''Who'' media. To cement Big Finish's general canonical status, though, the 2013 TV series minisode "[[Recap/DoctorWho50thPrequelTheNightOfTheDoctor The Night of the Doctor]]" (written by Creator/StevenMoffat) referenced several Big Finish companions by name.
