The latest free Big Finish story to download during coronavirus lockdown features new UNIT and the Silence in UNIT: Silenced – House of Silents.
It’s the new UNIT team versus terrifying monsters as, decades after their defeat by the Eleventh Doctor, the Silence prepare to rise against humanity in UNIT: Silenced – House of Silents.
Since the beginning of the lockdown imposed by the coronavirus crisis, Big Finish has been releasing weekly FREE DOWNLOADS of audio dramas – or #lockdownloads – for a limited time.
Every Monday, a new story (or episode from a box set collection) can be downloaded exclusively from the Big Finish web site’s Weekly Deals page at https://www.bigfinish.com/
These stories can be unlocked by anyone who has registered for a Big Finish account (which is free to create) and played on the Big Finish listening app (which is free to install). Each story will be available for one week only, and comes accompanied by a special discount offer on related titles.
This week’s free title is:
UNIT: Silenced – House of Silents, written by Matt Fitton
There is no record of the presence of an alien species known as ‘The Silents’ on Earth. UNIT has never engaged hostiles capable of editing themselves from observers’ memories.
There is no evidence that such an opponent, if real, is regrouping and beginning a new plan of infiltration and manipulation.
Kate Stewart and her team are in no mortal danger. How can they be, when they don’t even know the enemy exists?
Starring Jemma Redgrave and Ingrid Oliver, UNIT – The New Series was the first Big Finish range to use characters from the BBC mega-hit 21st century relaunching of Doctor Who!
Listeners can download House of Silents FREE from now until 23:59 (UK time) 7 June 2020 at the Big Finish website. For a limited time, Big Finish listeners can also download any of the first three volumes of UNIT – The New Series for 33% off, at the Weekly Deals page.
Optionally, the bundle price of the complete UNIT – The New Series 1-4 will be available at its lowest ever download price of just £68 when all four volumes are bought together: https://www.
Big Finish’s schedule of free lockdownload stories has been extended and new free adventures will continue to be released over the next three weeks.
Please note that Big Finish is currently operating a digital-first release schedule. The mailout of collector’s edition CDs will be delayed, but all purchases of CD releases unlock a digital copy that can be immediately downloaded or played on the Big Finish app from the release date.
