This week’s free audio adventure from Big Finish’s back catalogue is now available to download from the Big Finish website.
During the lockdown imposed by the coronavirus crisis, Big Finish is releasing free downloads of full-cast audio dramas – or #lockdownloads – for a limited time.
Every Monday, a new story (or episode from a box set collection) can be downloaded exclusively from the Big Finish web site’s Weekly Deals page at https://www.bigfinish.com/collections/v/weekly-deals.
These stories can be unlocked by anyone who has registered for a Big Finish account (which is free to create) and played on the Big Finish listening app (which is free to install).
Each story will be available for one week only, and comes accompanied by a special discount offer on related titles.
This week’s free title is:
Doctor Who – The Companion Chronicles: The Beginning, written by Marc Platt, and starring Carole Ann Ford and Terry Molloy.
This story marks the maiden voyage of the Doctor inside a Type 40 TARDIS he chose to steal and the day both he and Susan fled from Gallifrey. It was originally released in November 2013, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who.
When the First Doctor and his grand-daughter Susan escape through the cloisters of Gallifrey to an old Type 40 Time Travel capsule, little do they realize the adventures that lie ahead…
And little do they know, as the TARDIS dematerializes and they leave their home world behind, there is someone else aboard the ship. He is Quadrigger Stoyn, and he is very unhappy…
Big Finish listeners can get 50% off the Doctor Who – Lost Stories: First Doctor box set adventures at the Weekly Deals page, and save even more money with a download bundle of Doctor Who – The Companion Chronicles: The First Doctor volumes 1-3 (for just £36): https://www.bigfinish.com/bundles/start/3/1132
Further free stories will be released over the next seven weeks.
Please note that Big Finish is currently operating a digital-first release schedule. The mailout of collector’s edition CDs will be delayed, but all purchases of CD releases unlock a digital copy that can be immediately downloaded or played on the Big Finish app from the release date.
