Big Finish is offering part one of the Paul McGann audio Blood Of The Daleks for free download just prior to a major sale on the single-disc eighth Doctor adventures. It’s a good jumping-on point if you haven’t heard it, since it introduces new companion Lucie Miller, and of course it’s got Daleks in it – this was the first of the “new eighth Doctor adventures” that were rolled out in 2007, in the style/running length of the new TV series in the hopes that maybe Big Finish would snag some new fans.
The free download is good between today and Sunday.
Details of the sale are below:
Blood of the Daleks – Part 1 pits the Eighth Doctor against his oldest enemies and also stars Hayley Atwell (Captain America), Anita Dobson (EastEnders) and Kenneth Cranham (Rome, Hot Fuzz)
