Big Finish continue to support fans on a budget with more weekly free downloads
Big Finish are following their successful Lockdownload initiative with a new series of free downloadable audio dramas. This week sees the first of the Weekly Freebies range of free download and discounts, Jago & Litefoot: Mind Games. Even as ovid-19 pandemic shut down a huge part of the British entertainment industry, Big Finish has continued to produce and release brand new full-cast Doctor Who audio dramas on a weekly basis. A dedicated team of engineers, sound designers and musicians have brought remote recording techniques to bear. And the results have maintained Big Finish’s usual high standards and schedule. All with the aid of actors who have often brought their DIY skills, or those of their loved ones, to bear in making their own home studios.
In addition, Big Finish has so far given away over 100,000 free downloads of stories from its various ranges, including Doctor Who, Blake’s 7, Sherlock Holmes, and Dorian Gray. Now, a new selection of giveaways, entitled Weekly Freebies, will be made available to download exclusively from the Big Finish website’s Weekly Deals page. 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 download will be available for one week only. And each is also accompanied by a special discount offer on related titles. These discount offers will be available as either downloads or collector’s edition CDs or box sets.
