I've uploaded all of the EDAs in PDF versions to this folder on mediafire. They all should be in order. For Fitz fans, his first appearance is in book nineteen The Taint and (excepting The Burning through Father Time) he's in every other book after that. You can find a more detailed list with who's in each book on Wikipedia and you can find summaries of each book at The Doctor Who Reference Guide.

Though all of these books are out of print, you can also support your public library, local used bookstore or online retailers (ebay, abebooks, amazon marketplace, etc) by checking out or buying the print versions. It is nice to have the good ol' paper versions.

Please let me know if any of the links don't work or if mediafire doesn't work for you so I can find a better solution!

And so this isn't just a resource post: what are some of your favorite EDAs? Which would you recommend to someone that hasn't read any of them?

Because [livejournal.com profile] cosmic_celery asked. 8D

So what did happen to Fitz?

We all know how the Eighth Doctor's run ended. The sweet, spacey romantic ended up committing double genocide, killing off the Daleks and blowing up Gallifrey (again). The big ol' Time War.

But... what happened to Fitz Kreiner? Because let's face it, Fitz is scarily devoted to the Doctor. (Please see EarthWorld, Book of the Still, and every book written by Cole or Orman for confirmation.) So what happened to Fitz? I'm curious what the popular opinion is! So here is a poll with what I consider to be the popular opinions.

This poll is a ticky-box poll, but please only pick two or three options. Pick the ones you really feel are the most likely.

[Poll #1626892]

Now that you've done the poll, go to the comments and elaborate on what YOU think happened!

As the water shot up towards him, it occurred to him that dear old Geronimo would have been puzzled to hear that he was now remembered mainly by people who were about to fall from a great height. )

Feel free to drop into The Act_three Chat Room any time this evening. I'll be there after four this afternoon (7 EST).

EDIT: Actually, the AIM chat is a bit...terrible, really, so I've set up an IRC channel through Mibbit. Go to http://www.mibbit.com/chat/, type in a nick and #act_three to join. Thanks, and I'm sorry people have been having some issues. Hopefully this'll work.

For our discussion post this week, instead of specific questions, I'd like to ask what has confused or intrigued you so far about the story? What do you think of Fitz's role in the story so far, and what do you expect from the second half?

At long last, today Big Finish released "The Company of Friends", a brand new collection of short audio adventures including the very first one featuring our beloved Fitz.


Go.
Buy.
Listen.
Drool.
Return.
Discuss.

If I may, I'd like to take this opportunity to encourage you to buy direct from Big Finish, and not use *other means* of obtaining this. Partly because BF is still basically a small fan-run company who really need our support to stay in production, and also partly because the more they sell the more likely they are to produce more Fitz!

Of note, if you buy the hardcopy, you also get a link to download it right away. So you can listen quick and still get the lovely cover work later.

The Big Finish audio with Fitz comes out next month (123. The Company of Friends) and they've got a trailer up on the site!

So! What do you think of Fitz voiced by Matt Di Angelo? Are you excited for his Big Finish debut?

I've recently re-read Mark Michalowski's Halflife, and I posted some Fitz-centric discussion here on my journal. Spoilers for Halflife and some vague spoilers for some later developments in Fitz's arc (though I believe those are pretty much common knowledge).
