Download Gallifrey: Weapon of Choice from Big Finish – For Free!

The first episode of Big Finish’s popular Gallifrey series is available to download – completely free, for one week only!

Gallifrey: Weapon of Choice is written by Alan Barnes and stars Lalla Ward, Louise Jameson, John Leeson, and Lynda Bellingham as President Romana, Leela, K9, and Inquisitor Darkel respectively.

In recent months, Big Finish has released a selection of giveaways, available to download exclusively from Big Finish’s Weekly Deals. Accompanying each free release is a selection of discounts on related titles.

Barnes said:

Gallifrey revolves around impossible choices and that’s a consistent thing that runs through most of the stories – Romana is always being presented with terrible dilemmas that come with power. This is a chance to experience one of the most interesting, sparky and intelligent Doctor Who companions in a position where she has to make hard choices.”

Here’s the synopsis:

The Time Lords of Gallifrey were the first to map the Web of Time. Now, under the reforming gaze of President Romanadvoratrelundar, the oldest civilisation is ready to shed its monopoly, sharing its secrets with a coalition of the Temporal Powers the Monan Host, the Nekkistani and the Warpsmiths of Phaidon among them. 

But the coalition is a fragile one, and despised in some quarters. When a team of Time Technology Assessors makes a horrific discovery on the barren moon of Kikrit, it seems their enemies are arming themselves to strike at the alliance. Has a terrorist group really acquired a temporal weapon so terrible the Time Lords forgot about its existence? 

In search of the truth, Romana sends the woman called Leela and the robot dog K9 to the enclave of Gryben, a reception centre for temporal refugees. But the truth is war’s first casualty and the fallout could destroy them all. 

For a limited time only, Big Finish listeners can also get 50% off all episodes in Gallifrey Series 1-3 and 50% off the complete series 4 box set.  All bundle prices are also 50% off.  

The Gallifrey series features guest appearances from many familiar names, including Mary Tamm, Colin Baker, Carole Ann Ford, and Katy Manning.  

All the above offers end at 23:59 (BST) on 4th October 2020.
