It is with sadness that we report the passing of Jonathan Frid, who died peacefully last week at the age of 87. As vampire Barnabas Collins, he created a truly enduring character and cemented Dark Shadows' place as a pop culture phenomenon. Big Finish was lucky enough to work with Jonathan on the 2010 audio drama The Night Whispers, which featured his one and only return to the role that made him famous.
To mark the release in cinemas of the new Dark Shadows film by Tim Burton, for the three days of the 11th, 12th and 13th May Big Finish will be offering some very special discounts on Dark Shadows audiobook and full cast releases. We are also offering you the chance to download for FREE the first part of the recent Dark Shadows audiobook release, The House by the Sea, starring Colin Baker.
Sherlock Holmes - A Study in Fear, the stage play starring our own Nicholas Briggs as Sherlock Holmes, continues its UK tour. And for those of you who have not caught up with it yet, here's a teaser trailer.
Eight days in the jungle for Colin Baker (the Doctor from 1984-1986) in I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here!, and to kick off week two, we're reducing the price – on download only – of Dark Shadows: The House by the Sea.
We've had a few people contacting us asking if their order will arrive in time for Christmas. The Sales team is currently up to date with orders, so anything ordered up to Tuesday has been processed and shipped, with yesterday's orders being processed today. Those still intending to order should note the Post Office's last posting dates in the main news story. Orders may still arrive in time if sent after these dates, but sadly we can't guarantee it.
Big Finish is pleased to announce details of the 2013 series of Dark Shadows Dramatic Readings. As ever, the series will feature characters both old and new facing a terrifying array of spooky horrors...
A massive, massive thank you to everyone who took part in our May Day special offer last week. We really appreciate all customers, new and old, who dropped by and supported us, and shared the details of the offer with friends, family and any strangers they happened to chance upon. And, indeed, a huge thank you to our Sales team for tackling the increased demand in orders.
