It’s almost time for the final ever Doctor Who main range title to be released, so what better way to mark the occasion than revisiting the very first story Sirens of Time?

Full details of this week’s Big Finish give-away follow…

Back to the beginning

As Doctor Who – The Monthly Adventures marks its 275th and final release this week, Big Finish celebrates with a special FREE download edition of the very first audio adventure. While the UK remains in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, Big Finish is 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 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 #lockdownload is:

 Doctor Who: The Monthly Adventures – The Sirens of Time 

Originally released in July 1999 and written by Nicholas Briggs, this was the very first Monthly Adventure. Featuring the Fifth (Peter Davison), Sixth (Colin Baker) and Seventh (Sylvester McCoy) Doctors, this classic tale is best enjoyed alongside Talking ‘Bout My Regeneration, a free full-length documentary about how Doctor Who at Big Finish began.

Gallifrey is in a state of crisis, facing destruction at the hands of an overwhelming enemy. And the Doctor is involved in three different incarnations – each caught up in a deadly adventure, scattered across time and space. The web of time is threatened – and someone wants the Doctor dead.  

The three incarnations of the Doctor must join together to set time back on the right track – but in doing so, will they unleash a still greater threat? 

This special FREE download of The Sirens of Time is only available until 23:59 (UK time) on 18 March 2021. 

Plus, for a limited time, Big Finish listeners can get up to 50% off the first 100 Monthly Adventures, including the original version of Doctor Who: The Monthly Adventures – The Sirens of Time.
