This week sees not one but two free Doctor Who audio drama downloads from Big Finish, one via the website and one in the pages of the latest Doctor Who Magazine.
In recent months, Big Finish has released a selection of giveaways entitled Weekly Freebies. These are made available to download exclusively from the Big Finish web site’s Weekly Deals page at https://www.bigfinish.com/collections/v/weekly-deals for one week only.
Each story 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). Accompanying each free release is a selection of discounts on related titles.
This week’s Weekly Freebie is:
Doctor Who: The War Doctor – The Innocent
Starring John Hurt and Jacqueline Pearce, this full-cast audio adventure is notable for being the first Big Finish release featuring a “new series” Doctor.
As the Daleks mass their time fleet for a final assault on Gallifrey, something ancient is waiting for them at Omega One. And a sacrifice must be made.
Arch-manipulator and Time Lord strategist, Cardinal Ollistra receives shock news of the Doctor’s death.
Meanwhile, on the planet Keska, a parochial war has returned to plague a peaceful civilisation after decades of tranquillity. But how can such a war have any connection with the great Time War which, at any one moment in the whole of eternity, could threaten to tear the universe apart?
If only the Doctor were still alive.
Big Finish listeners can get up to 50% off downloads of related Time War adventures at the Weekly Deals page, or save even more money with download bundles of The War Doctor 1-4, The War Master 1-4, The Time War 1-4, Gallifrey Time War 1-4 and more.
All the above offers end at 23:59 on 20 September 2020.
This week also sees the release of Doctor Who Magazine issue 556, which features an additional free release and discount offer.
Readers of the magazine will be able to download Doctor Who: The Lost Stories – Farewell Great Macedon completely free, via the printed link and code. That’s over three hours of exciting audio Doctor Who! Plus, there is an additional exclusive discount of 50% off Big Finish Doctor Who – The Novel Adaptations releases.
The above offers are subject to terms and conditions as detailed in issue 556 of Doctor Who Magazine, which is available to buy online or in shops from 17 September 2020.
