Every Monday, a new story (or episode from a box set collection) can be downloaded for free exclusively from the Big Finish website’s Weekly Deals page at Each freebie can be unlocked by anyone who has registered for a Big Finish account (which is free to create) and played on the Big Finish listening app (which is free to install). Accompanying each free release is a selection of discounts on related titles.

This week’s #lockdownloads are: 
Doctor Who – An Eye for Murder, by Una McCormack 

This complete Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) and Peri (Nicola Bryant) historical adventure was originally released in July 2014 as part of the Breaking Bubbles and Other Stories anthology.

The year is 1939, and a case of poison pen letters at St Ursula’s College threatens to change the course of the Second World War. Fortunately, thriller writer Miss Sarah Perry is on hand to investigate… 

Doctor Who – The Word Lord, by Steven Hall 

First released in November 2008 as part of the anniversary anthology Forty-FiveThe Word Lord finds the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy), Ace (Sophie Aldred) and Hex (Philip Olivier) beneath the ice for a frosty encounter with an eerily nonchalant villain.

In a top-secret military bunker deep beneath the Antarctic ice, a mysterious death threatens peace negotiations and could spell disaster for the inhabitants of Earth. Can the Doctor cross the t’s and dot the i’s? Or will his efforts get lost in translation?

100, Forty-Five, The Company of Friends, The Demons of Red Lodge and Other Stories, Recorded Time and Other Stories, 1001 Nights, Breaking Bubbles and Other Stories, You Are the Doctor and Other Stories, The Memory Bank and Other Stories, Alien Heart / Dalek Soul, Vortex Ice / Cortex Fire, Shadow Planet / World Apart, Black Thursday / Power Game and Blood on Santa’s Claw and Other Stories.
