Free Download: Callan, Starring Ben Miles and Frank Skinner, from Big Finish

There are very few positives when it comes to lockdown. But one is, at least, Big Finish, releasing free downloads of full-cast audio dramas – or #lockdownloads – for a limited time.

Every Monday, a new story (or episode from a box set collection) can be downloaded for free exclusively from the Big Finish’s Weekly Deals page.

This week’s #lockdownload is Callan – Volume 1: File on a Deadly Deadshot  

Originally released in July 2018, File on a Deadly Deadshot is adapted by Peter Mitchell and directed by Ken Bentley. Starring Ben Miles as trained assassin David Callan with Frank Skinner as his friend, former cellmate, and partner in crime Lonely, this devious drama takes us to the heart of high society with a murderer on the loose.

Here’s the synopsis:

With Lonely posing as his gentleman’s gentleman, the section’s top operative David Callan is sent to a country estate in Northumberland to infiltrate a rich men’s shooting party. One of his companions is an assassin but which one?  

High living and high stakes on the grouse moors as Callan attempts to work out which of the dead-shots is a man-hunter. 

And for a limited time, you can get up to 40% off Callan – Volume 1 and Volume 2. And for those who’d like to save more, there is also a bundle deal of 20% off both!

All deals are available as a CD box set and as a download. All the above offers can be accessed at the Big Finish Weekly Deals page and must end at 23:59 on 21st February 2021.
