For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.

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 website’s Weekly Deals page at  

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: 1001 Nights (part one) written by Emma Beeby & Gordon Rennie.  

This story was originally released in December 2012 as part of a four-story anthology, and stars Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor, and Sarah Sutton as Nyssa. The Doctor has been imprisoned and Nyssa must tell stories to save him. But the stories' true purpose is much more sinister... 

A long time ago, two travellers came from far away... 

In the perfumed palace of an omnipotent Sultan, a girl must tell stories to keep the man she cares about from a cruel and horrible death. She spins tales of distant lands she has visited with a mysterious traveller, of fabulous creatures and fantastic adventures — and of a blue box that can travel in time and space. 

Meanwhile, in the dungeons below the throne room, there lurks a secret which will bring down the kingdom — perhaps even the universe. 

Can the Doctor and Nyssa escape from this never-ending story before the final chapter spells their end? 

Big Finish listeners can get 50% off the complete Doctor Who: 1001 Nights anthology of adventures at the Weekly Deals page, and save even more money with a download bundle of Doctor Who: Fifth Doctor monthly adventures 166-197 (11 releases for just £65 - a saving of 50% off the regular price): These offers expire at 23:59 UK time on 03 May 2020.

Further free stories will be released over the next five weeks. (We're keeping each free title a surprise until we release it, so keep checking back every Monday.)
