Tuesday saw the announcement of our Listeners' title for August - The Picture of Dorian Gray

Based on the classic novel by Oscar Wilde, this adaptation starring Alexander Vlahos is available for download at £2.99 the whole month. And you can catch the further adventures of Dorian Gray in The Confessions of Dorian Gray, which imagines a world where Dorian was real, and his antics inspired the Oscar Wilde novel.

On Wednesday, we announced the synopses and cover artwork for Torchwood - Series 5 - Aliens Among Us Part 1.

Plus, we interviewed James Goss, producer and writer of two epsiodes of Torchwood Series 5. Read the whole interview here for more information on characters, new Torchwood updates and Russell T Davies’ involvement in the Series.

Thursday was the release of Hamlet, Big Finish's first Shakespeare adaptation.

Starring Alexander Vlahos as Hamlet, you can get this release today from just £14.99. If you sign up to the Big Finish newsletter there is also a Free Extract of Act 1 to try! 

On Friday, we looked at the upcoming Doctor Who Main range stories The Blood Furnace, starring Sylvester McCoy, Bonnie Langford and Sophie Aldred, and Time in Office, starring Peter Davison, Louise Jameson and Janet Fielding, both written by Eddie Robson.

And on Saturday we looked at some advanced reviews of The Prisoner Volume 2, out this month!

‘I’m not a number. I’m a free man!’

January 16th, 1967...

A secret agent resigns, then wakes up to find himself imprisoned in ‘The Village’ - a bizarre community with a cheery veneer, but an underbelly of mystery and threat. All occupants of The Village have numbers instead of names, with our secret agent forced to accept the mantle of Number Six.

Read extracts of the reviews for Volume 2 here.

And that was the week! Keep an eye out for more news next week, when Everything Changes, and you've got to be ready…
