Enjoy TWO Free Doctor Who Downloads from Big Finish This Week!

Big Finish is giving away two free downloads this week – one through its own site and the other through this Thursday’s issues of Doctor Who Magazine!

While you can enjoy The War Doctor – The Innocent from the Big Finish Weekly Deals page, readers of Doctor Who Magazine #556, on sale this week, will be able to download The Lost Stories – Farewell Great Macedon completely free, via the printed link and code. That’s over three hours of exciting audio Doctor Who! Plus, there is an additional exclusive discount of 50% off Big Finish Doctor Who – The Novel Adaptations releases.  

In recent months, Big Finish has released a selection of giveaways entitled Weekly Freebies, available to download exclusively from the Big Finish’s Weekly Deals page for one week only.

Here’s the blurb for The War Doctor – The Innocent

Starring John Hurt and Jacqueline Pearce, this full-cast audio adventure is notable for being the first Big Finish release featuring a “new series” Doctor.  

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 downloads of related Time War adventures at the Weekly Deals page, or save even more money with download bundles of The War Doctor 1-4, The War Master 1-4, The Time War 1-4, Gallifrey Time War 1-4, and more.  

All the above offers end at 23:59 on 20th September 2020. 

Doctor Who Magazine #556 also sees the comic strip return of the Ninth Doctor and Rose in the first part of Time Lord Victorious: Monstrous Beauty.

The above offers are subject to terms and conditions as detailed in the magazine, which is available to buy online or in shops from 17 September 2020.
