Big Finish has announced a new programme of weekly free downloads and related discounts, starting today with Jago & Litefoot: Mind Games, written by Justin Richards.
This project follows the wildly successful series of free downloadable audio dramas made available during lockdown. Since the Coronavirus pandemic, Big Finish has continued to produce and release dramas using remote recording techniques and employing actors with (often self-made) home studios, plus a dedicated team of engineers, sound designers and musicians.
In addition, Big Finish has 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’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 comes accompanied by a special discount offer on related titles, available as either downloads or collector’s edition CDs or box sets.
