Big Finish Audios

Doctor Who Unbound from Big Finish are “What if?” style adventures – things that wouldn’t happen in-canon, but contain interesting themes to explore.  I’ve listened to a couple before – Masters of War and Sympathy for the Devil – in which David Warner’s 3rd Doctor didn’t become scientific adviser to […]

He Jests At Scars

The latest newsletter from Big Finish offers a free download of episode one of The Third Doctor Adventures, volume 5. For some time, Big Finish have been producing Third Doctor adventures with the late Jon Pertwee replaced by the vocal talents of Tim Treloar. This Third Doctor has been joined […]

5.1A. Doctor Who: Primord Part 1

Having recently listened to The Sixth Doctor: The Last Adventure and being thoroughly confused about the new companion Constance Clarke, I surprised myself to discover that I had Criss-Cross in my collection.  Criss-Cross, from Big Finish‘s Doctor Who Main Range, was released in September 2015 and introduces Constance Clarke.  It […]

204. Criss-Cross

Short Trips are Big Finish‘s answer to audiobooks.  Unlike the “Chronicles” ranges (Doctor Who – Companion Chronicles, and Blakes 7 – The Liberator Chronicles), Short Trips feature just one voice who “reads” the story and does various attempts at other characters.  The occasional sound effect/music helps things nip along but, […]

DWST6.01 – Gardens of the Dead

The Turing Test by Simon Guerrier is the first adventure from the first box-set, released in February 2012, of The Liberator Chronicles, a range of enhanced Blakes 7 audios from the stables of Big Finish.  This first episode was released in standalone format during the 2014 “12 Days of Big Finish-Mas” […]

B7LC 1.01 – The Turing Test

Having finished listening to the first season of Big Finish‘s full-cast audio Blakes 7 adventures, with Caged effectively tying up that series of adventures, the only other full-cast episode I have at the moment is the opening episode of season 2 : Scimitar.  Season 2 is set during the third […]

B7 2.01 – Scimitar

The previous adventure, Cold Fury, ended on the cliffhanger of Travis on board the Liberator demanding Blake’s surrender.  The final adventure of Big Finish‘s first season of full-cast Blakes 7 adventures opens with Blake having his wounds patched up by Cally, whilst Jenna and Avon are being subjected to Travis’ […]

B7 1.06 – Caged

Following on almost directly after the previous adventure, Mirror, Cold Fury opens with Vila having apparently escaped Travis’ grasp just long enough to send an audio signal with location beacon to the Liberator.  He’s then locked up again, and suffers Travis asking him to tell him something which Vila is […]

B7 1.05 – Cold Fury

  Following on from the previous adventure, Drones, Mirror, by Peter Anghelides, is the fourth in the first series of full-cast Blakes 7 audio adventures from Big Finish.  Released in April 2014, Drones features all surviving members of the original Blakes 7 cast ably assisted by Alistair Lock as Orac […]

Blake (Gareth Thomas) is tracking down Alexa Michelov (Abigail […]
