And I would guess it would be the newer, more feature laden version due to hit R2 next month. As a side note, I'm loving the audio dramas featuring the McGann Doctor.

I always had a soft spot for this one, probably because of Sylvester McCoy, who was the Doctor i first really watched.

Seems to be. Which means the McGann and McCoy commentary track is a go!

It's got one or two moments but yeah, really not very good. The best thing this pilot gave us are all those great audio adventures with the 8th Doctor.

Great or not, it be a piece of the show's history, and one many would love to have. Plus, it isn't that bad.
