Big Finish has unveiled its latest free download, this time featuring Eagle Comic’s famous “Pilot of the Future”, starring Ed Stoppard, Geoff McGivern, and Heida Reed.
Over the coming weeks, Big Finish is releasing a selection of giveaways including free and discounted releases, entitled Weekly Freebies. 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.
This week’s Weekly Freebie is Dan Dare: Voyage to Venus, written by Richard Kurti and Bev Doyle. Here’s the synopsis:
Brilliant test pilot, Dan Dare, is chosen to fly the Anastasia – a new experimental spacecraft – on its maiden voyage to Venus. This isn’t exploration – it is to make first contact with a mysterious civilisation that has sent technological secrets as a goodwill gesture.
However, what Dan, Digby and Professor Peabody find on Venus isn’t goodwill, but a terrifyingly intelligent, cold-hearted ruler, the Mekon. A creature destined to become Dan Dare’s nemesis – and Earth’s greatest threat…
Big Finish listeners can also get up to 50% off the complete Dan Dare – The Audio Adventures box sets, either as collector’s edition CD, or as a digital download, while stocks last.
All offers end at 23:59 (BST) on 30th August 2020.
This audio version of the Dan Dare comic strips comes from the team behind Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles.
Note: Dan Dare features some mild swearing and content which may not be suitable for younger listeners.
