Big Finish Update


June 21, 2005 • Posted By Shaun Lyon
Big Finish has updated its website with a few items including the release of Gallifrey: Pandora and UNIT: The Wasting, as well as a sample downloadable story from the forthcoming Short Trips: A Day in the Life. They've also announced a summer sale of various audio adventures.

Elsewhere, Andrew Collins, who spoke on camera for the "Doctor Who Confidential" series, notes in a Guardian article that he will be appearing in a Big Finish audio, Live 34: "I received the call-up last Wednesday. 'How would you like to be in Doctor Who?' my agent asked. I think I just laughed out loud, which had been her exact response when the offer came in. I'm playing a radio presenter called Drew Shahan, who broadcasts on Live 34 to the residents of Earth Colony 34 in the distant future. I haven't been this excited since Newsnight Review. I can't reveal any more for obvious discretionary reasons - and to keep the Whovians in suspense. (What am I saying? They've probably posted the script up on Outpost Gallifrey or some such website by now!) You'll have to wait until it's released in September. But as you read this, I'll be in a recording studio in Stockwell, south London, getting into character, eating the meat out of the sandwiches and feigning nonchalance in the thrilling presence of the Doctor and Ace."
