For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Doctor Who, New York musical theatre and football: three unlikely worlds collide in a brand-new full-cast audio drama released today by Big Finish Productions.
O’Neill, a former Nottingham Forest midfielder, as well as the hugely successful manager of Celtic and Leicester football clubs, pops up as theatre heckler Arthur Lee in Matthew Sweet’s tribute to 1930s musicals, Broadway Belongs To Me!
Producer Jacqueline Rayner said: “Many paths cross in the studios, but I don't think I've ever witnessed a cast so excited as when they encountered football legend Martin O'Neill! I think everyone involved was already a fan, and ended the day even bigger fans.
“I was listening in remotely, gutted not to be there, but Martin kindly signed an autograph for my son, with a lovely message. His small part in the play is the best cameo ever! If he ever wants to move on from football, there's most definitely a place for him in comedy!”
Doctor Who – The Sixth Doctor Adventures: Purity Unleashed is now available to own as a collector’s edition 3-disc CD box set (for just £19.99) or download only (for just £16.99), exclusively here.

Purification by Chris Chapman
The Doctor and Mel follow the trail to a port in New Zealand, 1910. A ship is being prepared for a journey to Antarctica and the Doctor realises that this is Captain Scott's Terra Nova expedition. But this is merely the beginning of an intricate scheme to rewrite the future of humanity.
Time-Burst by Ian Potter
