This week’s Weekly Freebie is:
Doctor Who: The Nightmare Fair part one, written by Graham Williams, adapted by John Ainsworth.
This full-cast audio drama was Big Finish’s first ever Lost Story, adapted from the script originally planned for Doctor Who’s twenty-third season on television. It stars Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant (as the Sixth Doctor and Peri), with guest star david baillie as The Celestial Toymaker (a part originated by Michael Gough in the 1960s).
The TARDIS has been drawn to Blackpool in the year 1985, where the Doctor intends to investigate a dangerous space/time vortex… while enjoying some local attractions along the way. But an old enemy is watching from his base deep within the amusement park, a timeless being who craves revenge.
The Celestial Toymaker has returned. The game is on. And, should he lose, the Doctor will pay the ultimate forfeit…
The complete Doctor Who: The Nightmare Fair is available for £4.99 as a collector’s edition CD or download (at over 60% OFF), while stocks last.
Big Finish listeners can also get up to 60% OFF any story in Doctor Who: The Lost Stories (series one), and up to 50% OFF Doctor Who – The Lost Stories: The Second Doctor box set, either as collector’s edition CD, or as a digital download, while stocks last.
All offers end at 23:59 on 16 August 2020. All titles offered are going out of print – once the current stock is sold, these will not be repressed.
Please note that Big Finish has now re-opened its warehouse and commenced the shipping of back orders. The mailout of collector’s edition CDs will still be delayed, but all purchases of these CD titles unlock a digital copy that can be downloaded or played on the Big Finish app immediately.
