❉ Big Finish’s #lockdownloads continue with a comedic caper featuring companion duos Peri & Erimem and Ace & Hex.
Another week, another lockdownload – and this time Big Finish has gone classic companion crazy for Doctor Who!
As announced last week, 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.
Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Big Finish has given away more than 175,000 free downloads of stories from its various ranges, including Doctor Who, Blake’s 7, Sherlock Holmes, and Dorian Gray.
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 Veiled Leopard
Originally released in March 2006 and featuring Nicola Bryant (Peri), Caroline Morris (Erimem), Sophie Aldred (Ace) and Philip Olivier (Hex) all in their original roles, this comedic caper sees the Fifth Doctor and the Seventh Doctor’s companions face off on opposing missions about the very same jewel.
Monte Carlo, 1966.
Four time travellers. Two missions. One costumed ball. The Doctor has sent Peri and Erimem to prevent the fabulous Veiled Leopard diamond from being stolen. Which is odd, seeing as the Doctor has sent Ace and Hex to steal the diamond. How will the two teams cope with this contradictory task? Will Peri’s asp slip? Why does Ace have to pretend to be a French maid? How will Erimem cope with Pharaoh Rammalamadingdong? And can Hex really ‘do posh’?
