The Big Finish Roundup

4 February 2018

What a week! With an exciting new release and looking forward to the future, make sure you have the lowdown with the Big Finish roundup.

This week we celebrated the birthday of the First Lady of Big Finish, Lisa Bowerman. A regular director and performer for Big Finish, you couldn’t spell Big Finish without Bernice Summerfield (it may seem impossible, but Benny would find a way!).

We looked further into one of our upcoming Big Finish Originals. Samuel Barnett (Dirk Gently, The History Boys, The Lady in the Van, Torchwood) plays the titular Cicero – one of the most celebrated and important figures in European language and culture – in a new historical audio thriller, filled with murder, romance and revolution.

Based on the true life and stories of the ancient Roman politician and lawyer, Cicero is given a twenty-first century re-invention on audio at Big Finish Productions, as the famed orator investigates dark deeds in Ancient Rome and beyond.

Out on Tuesday, The Authentic Experience kicks off the Doctor Who Short Trips range for 2018. Narrated by Nicola Bryant and written by Dan Starkey, you can get this new Sixth Doctor tale for £2.99. Ready for The Authentic Experience?

Tired of the old 9 to 5? The daily grind getting you down? Step this way to discover a universe of possibilities! If you're fed up with looking at screens all day, we can offer the authentic experience: whether you want to be as rich as Croesus and swim in gold, or feel the dirt and sweat of honest toil we're ready for your business. Forget the "Same Old", embrace the "New Old"!

We looked ahead to the upcoming Doctor Who Main Range, with a Fifth Doctor UNIT crossover. The Helliax Rift arrives in April.

Daniel Hopkins thought he knew what he was letting himself in for when he joined the top-secret UNIT organisation as its latest Medical Officer.

Racing about the countryside, chasing strange lights in the sky? Check. Defending the realm against extraterrestrial incursion? Check. Frequent ear-bashings from UNIT’s UK CO, the famously no-nonsense Lt-Col Lewis Price? Check. Close encounters of the First, Second and even Third kind? Check, check, check.

But he had no idea what alien beings were really like. Until the day of the Fallen Kestrel. Until the day he met the Doctor.

And for those with a comedy frame of mind going into February, you can try Long Way From Home, a new BBC/Big Finish comedy pilot starring Kai Owen (Rhys Williams in Torchwood) who plays Noel alongside Alexandria Riley (Torchwood Series 5, Aliens Among Us) as Eleri. They are joined by Laura Singleton (Or Something Better) playing Jenna and Justin Davies (Stella, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children) who plays Rhys.

And that’s the Big Finish news! Make sure you follow the Big Finish social channels, Facebook Twitter and Instagram for all the latest.
