Which "missing" character would you most like to hear in a Big Finish audio?
dragonq
A naughty part of me wanted to add Og to this poll, but seriously, there are three regular characters who have not been featured in the new plays. Who would you most like to reappear, and, since we've lost David Jackson, who would you cast as Gan?

Has to be Glynis Barber since:

David Jackson = dead
Josette Simon = highly unlikely to do it.

I don't like the actors being recast.

Glynis; I'm in agreement with TT regarding not recasting regular characters.
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

I understand that one might prefer the original actors if available. But what about the recasting of Zen and Orac? I'm at a loss as to why they don't count as regular characters.

I'm obviously not speaking for how anyone else feels but for me the difference is that I have formed an association between the appearance of the actor, their voice, and the character they play; this was not the case with Peter Tuddenham because not only do we not see him but I consider computers in any series to be items of equipment rather than characters.

Soolin: Couldn't abide anyone but David as Gan, and Soolin's back story has far more drama.

Soolin all the way.

Would love to see Glynis come back as Soolin. But we have to wait for Big Finish to get the 4th series rights, correct? I am still hoping Josette Simon will be lured back to playing the role of Dayna as she has already done a Doctor Who disc and I'm convinced the BF guys can be very persuasive... I would rather not recast Gan and I for one am saddened even more that we lost David Jackson so long ago, because he would have had his chance to play Gan 'right' all these years later. I met him once and he was an angel! He really is now. Bless.

Looks like I'm the minority view, but I would be okay with recasting Gan (though it is a shame David Jackson isn't still around to play the part). None of the others sound exactly like they did 30 years ago and Zen and Orac have already been recast (I do count them as characters). When I first started listening to the audios, I had a hard time putting the voices with the characters; Blake was the most difficult. It took several disks to get past that problem. So if BF could find someone who sounds a bit like David did, I think I could get past the "different" voice. On the other hand, I wouldn't object to some Soolin stories. There is plenty of ground to explore in her character.
 
dragonq
I think that the crew dynamic of that first season is very special, and if you don't have a Gan, you can't explore that in a full cast audio. I don't have a problem with Gan being recast, if they get the right person. I'm thoroughly accustomed to the recast computer voices, and some people are just incredible mimics. (Frazer Hines as the second doctor--oh, my goodness.) Gareth Thomas sounds very different as an old man, and Jacqueline Pearce's voice has also altered, while Steven Pacey's present audio Tarrant doesn't greatly resemble the one he did on TV. These audio plays can only ever be approximations, after all.

Soolin would definitely be my second choice. I hope someone at BF is noting this.

Clive mantle as Gan

I voted for Gan, but that was without considering the fact that David Jackson is dead. I just loved his voice. But if we could get someone who sounded like him that would be okay with me.

I'd be happy for any Post-Gauda Prime adventures with Avon, Vila, Tarrant and Soolin to get around the lack of Dayna.

I know this post is kind of old, but I'd love some permutation of this idea... (maybe similar to the Liberator Chronicles where it's just one or two actors?)

And I voted for Soolin, for most of the same practical reasons listed in the other posts. :/

Given that most of the actors are onboard, and if Big Finish did do a fifth season, would anyone want to see Blake survive? Or should the new adventures abide by Gareth Thomas' desire for Blake to be dead at the end of the final episode. Seeing as it'd be a cop-out (in the nicest sense of the word) for most of the Scorpio crew to survive being shot, but would Blake living be a stretch too far?

Not if it was the Blake clone. It could have been the clone that was shot, or if it was the real Blake who's dead, then the clone could be somewhere around. And having Rashel with him would be an added interesting bonus. Either way, not a stretch!

Unless of course it was all Avon's dream in which case they are all alive!!! Or better yet Servalan's!

Maybe everything after the massacre in the tunnels (TWB) was dreams given to Blake to confuse and distract his mind and prevent him leading a second rebellion...
