On Monday we were pleased to announce the selected entry of the Paul Spragg Memorial Short Trips Opportunity. The 2017 selected entry, performed by Nicholas Briggs, will be fully wrapped and ready for release later in the year. Congratulations to Selim Ulug, and his great new story, Landbound.

On Tuesday, With an all-star ensemble cast performing one of the classics of literature, Big Finish’s adaptation of King Lear was released!

In an ancient Britain of warring nobles and sibling rivalries, power is a precarious thing. When the ageing King Lear declares that he will divide his kingdom in three to prevent future strife, he unwittingly sets in motion a chain of events that will unravel into treachery, horror, conflict and death.

Renowned for its pathos and poetry as much as for its savage violence, Shakespeare’s wildest tragedy remains as thrilling and relevant today as when it was first performed: King Lear is a tale of politics, ambition, greed, vanity, betrayal, love, pride, madness, war and bloody vengeance.

King Lear is available now at £16.99 on CD or £14.99 on download. Don’t forget that all Big Finish CD purchases unlock a download exclusive on the Big Finish app.

On Wednesday, we announced Torchwood One: Machines, the second Torchwood One box set, coming out in July next year. With guest star Jane Asher and a script by Gareth David-Lloyd, Torchwood has never been in more peril with the return of arch-villain WOTAN.

On Thursday, the Time War began!

Out now is Part 1 of the Time War starring Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor trying to survive in a universe at war, in four new stories written by John Dorney and Matt Fitton.

For podcast fans, this week Toby Hadoke chatted to a man who has been in Not one, but two Whos, and both in this century, and as he puts it "I've played a lot of Luigis".

And Nick and Benji has all the latest audio drama news from Big Finish, a Martian Invasion of Earth preview, guest star Tom Price and a drama tease: Torchwood - Aliens Among Us Part 2 (definitely NOT suitable for younger listeners or those of aren’t familiar with the world of Torchwood!).

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