Virtual Big Finish Day promises exclusive Doctor Who news and surprises
The company’s Creative Director, Nicholas Briggs, spoke of the team’s disappointment at having to cancel the annual one-day Big Finish Day event at Derby QUAD. “We racked our brains to think what was possible by way of an alternative. Throughout the coronavirus crisis, we’ve continued to produce many audio dramas. So we thought a little peek into our lockdown lives might be fun. Virtual Big Finish Day promises star guests and surprises, as cast, crew and fans come together to make a special online event where everyone is invited.”
Expect the livestream to reveal exclusive news about future releases. But they won’t be publishing a formal running order as guests are being booked right until the last minute. So make sure you join the fun from the start at 16:00 (UK time) on Saturday 01 August 2020, or you might miss out.
