The Big Finish Roundup

13 May 2018

Eighth Doctor special offers, behind the scenes in the studio, cyber-conversion and a look to the stars... don't miss any of the news in the Big Finish roundup.

At the time of writing, there are some special offers on some Eighth Doctor stories. From now until 23:59 UK Time on the 17th of May 2018, you can save 50% on the Eighth Doctor Adventures releases, Eighth Doctor stories in the Doctor Who Main Range in bundles, and the award-winning Dark Eyes and Doom Coalition box sets.

Enter code EIGHT50 at the checkout to save 50% on tales from the Eighth Doctor Adventures, and the award-winning sagas, Dark Eyes and Doom Coalition. Please note, the offer code does not work with bundles so these have been manually updated to reflect the offer.

We’ve more from behind-the-scenes with Samuel Barnett and George Naylor in an interview at the recording of Cicero back in September last year. Check out the behind the scenes video below: 

The 8th of May is always Big Finish's saddest day. To commemorate the much-missed Paul Spragg, the Paul Spragg Memorial Short Trips Opportunity opened Tuesday for a third year.

Now in its third year, the Paul Spragg Short Trips Memorial Opportunity is open again from Tuesday until the end of June. The full list of conditions can be found here, and should be read by anyone planning on sending a new story to us over the coming weeks.

Please note that some new updates to the Short Trips Memorial Opportunity are happening this year. As we received so many wonderful ideas in the first year and even more last year, to give each writer a fairer chance we’d like to request that each writer submits a maximum of two story submissions.

Previously the competition was only open to Classic Doctor Who, but this year we’ve been able to broaden our horizons. Story submissions can also include Doctor Who in the New Series defined as running from the 1st Doctor up to the 12th Doctor in Twice Upon a Time. The exception to this is the War Doctor – due to licensing agreements we cannot include the War Doctor in this Opportunity.

More details on the return of the First Doctor became available Wednesday. The second volume of the First Doctor Adventures is to be released in July, with two new adventures for the original TARDIS team.

The sixth series of UNIT adventures arrived Thursday, and the fate of Earth has never been more precarious. Can the UNIT team fight off a new race of Cybermen without the Doctor? Who will survive Cyber-conversion? And can the War Master be trusted?

Coming out later this month, the return of cult sci-fi detective drama Star Cops. You can catch the trailer for this exciting new audio release here from Saturday.

Created by Chris Boucher (Blake's 7, Doctor Who), British sci-fi TV series Star Cops was first broadcast on BBC2 in 1987. Nine episodes were made and this May Star Cops is back on audio from Big Finish. Tune in to the trailer now for Mother Earth 1.

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.
