The Big Finish Roundup

6 May 2018

We hope you’re dressed for the occasion… Some big news announced this week, special offers on award nominated titles and the second of our Big Finish Originals released. Ready for the Big Finish roundup?

Last weekend Big Finish received some welcome news from the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers who honour licenced works that tie in with other media. Big Finish was delighted to find four of its releases nominated in the Scribe Awards 2018 Audio category.

To celebrate the hard work put in by our fantastic writers, actors, directors and production team, the four nominated releases on now on special offer. These offers end at midday (UK time) on Tuesday 8th May. Find our more here.

We returned to Gallifrey for the latest journey in the Doctor Who Short Trips range on Monday. Seán Carlsen stars as Narvin (from the Gallifrey range) in this Fourth Doctor and Adric tale, which will change the web of time forever.

Erasure is out now from the Big Finish website (only) at £2.99 a download.

For the Listeners Title this month we have not one but two adventures! For the whole of May you can pick up two journeys with the Sixth Doctor joined by those infernal investigators, Jago & Litefoot. For the whole of May you can pick up Voyage to Venus and Voyage to the New World for just 99p each on download.

Professor Litefoot and Henry Gordon Jago are accustomed to the murky fog of Victorian London and the palatable pints of half and half at the Red Tavern. They are not used to travelling through time and space with their old friend the Doctor.

And now they find themselves whisked off to the planet Venus in the distant future, at a time when warrior women rule from a floating city in the clouds. There’s a mystery here, one that the Grand Empress Vulpina intends to keep secret. Even if it means destroying these visitors from the long-dead planet Earth...

Roanoke Island, 1590.
The TARDIS materializes in the past, and the Doctor’s companions, Professor Litefoot and Henry Gordon Jago, find themselves prisoners of the natives in the New World. But there’s
something something strange here – stranger than even the colonists, led by Englishman John White.
What are the ghostly children? And who is the Old Man of Croaton? The
travellers are about to discover the secret of the lost colony... and it may cost Jago's life.

The second of our Big Finish Originals came out Wednesday. The continued adventures of one of history's most famous orators, Cicero, stars Samuel Barnett and George Naylor in a journey 2,000 years into our past.

Exploring Ancient Rome in all its life, corruption and gory detail, you can discover the life of Cicero now.

It’s River Song versus the Masters! On Thursday we announced that Michelle Gomez returns as Missy and Eric Roberts reprises his portrayal of the Master after a 22 year hiatus in the fifth series of The Diary of River Song.

The Diary of River Song series 5

And we announced on Friday the 1980s Cybermen are returning! The Hour of the Cybermen, a Sixth Doctor tale, is out this July, and the Sixth Doctor meets the new UNIT team – but will they trust him? Read here for some exciting cast news for this release.

Answering a call from UNIT, the Doctor arrives in London to find the streets deserted, apart from looters in possession of a valuable commodity – water.

Britain is suffering an extreme and bizarre drought. The cause is suspected to be extra-terrestrial.

The discovery of a signal being transmitted into space, and of a spacecraft whose crew are desiccated corpses, provides a possible answer. But the true enemy is an old foe of the Doctor’s.

The Cybermen have been patient, setting their plans in place over a number of years. As the final stage is implemented, in the darkest hour, the Doctor must identify who among his allies he can trust.

Catch the trailer for Callan Volume 1 now, with Ben Miles as the eponymous Callan, Frank Skinner as Lonely – the thieving sidekick to Callan, Nicholas Briggs as Callan’s superior and head of The Section, and Jane Slavin as Liz – Section secretary.

And that’s the news, stay tuned for all the latest on the Big Finish site, and on our social media Facebook Twitter and Instagram.
