Big Finish Free
This week’s free title is Doctor Who: The War Doctor – The Innocent

Starring John Hurt and Jacqueline Pearce, this story is notable for being the first Big Finish release featuring a “new series” Doctor. Set during the Time War, it concerns the War Doctor’s recovery on the peaceful planet Keska. As the Daleks mass their time fleet for a final assault on Gallifrey, something ancient is waiting for them at Omega One. And a sacrifice must be made. Arch-manipulator and Time Lord strategist, Cardinal Ollistra receives shock news of the Doctor’s death. Meanwhile, on the planet Keska, a parochial war has returned to plague a peaceful civilisation after decades of tranquillity. But how can such a war have any connection with the great Time War which, at any one moment in the whole of eternity, could threaten to tear the universe apart? If only the Doctor were still alive.

Big Finish listeners can get up to 50% off related War Doctor adventures at the Weekly Deals page, or save even more money with a download bundle of The War Doctor 1-4 (These offers expire at 23:59 UK time on 12 April 2020.)
Further free stories will be released over the next eight weeks.
Please note that Big Finish is currently operating a digital-first release schedule. The mailing of collector’s edition CDs will be delayed. However, all purchases of CD releases unlock a digital copy that can be immediately downloaded or played on the Big Finish app, subject to the release date.
