Big Finish must really love five pound notes. Their ‘Big Finish for a Fiver’ offer, which includes audios like Her Final Flight, Shada (with the Eighth Doctor) and the Dalek Empire series, has been going for a while now.
And for this weekend only, they’re celebrating the wonderful late Maggie Stables, who played Evelyn Smythe between 2000 and 2011. Stables retired from acting in 2013, and sadly passed away in September 2014. Big Finish’s latest offer includes all her adventures alongside the Doctor.
The first 50 CDs of the Doctor Who Main Range (from The Sirens of Time to Zagreus) are available for just £2.99 on download, and this includes Evelyn’s introduction in The Marian Conspiracy, her meeting the Brigadier and Romana in The Spectre of Lanyon Moor, and her battles against the Daleks in tales like The Apocalypse Element and Jubilee.
From Arrangements for War onwards, all her audio tales are available on CD and download for £5, including Medicinal Purposes (guest starring David Tennant), Pier Pressure, and 100. The Feast of Axos is also downloadable for £2.99 as part of Big Finish’s Listeners promotion.
A Death in the Family, starring Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred and Philip Oliver, brings a decade’s worth of adventures to a close for Big Finish’s first original companion.
Furthermore, Maggie appeared as Evelyn in two extra adventures, both available for just £5: Real Time pits our heroes against the Cybermen; while The Companion Chronicles: A Town Called Fortune takes the professor back to the Wild West. Maggie appears as alternative characters in two other dramas; aiding Lisa Bowerman in Bernice Summerfield: Just War (permanently reduced to £5 on CD) and in Sarah Jane Smith: The Tao Connection, featuring the late Elisabeth Sladen as the irreplaceable journalist.
Alternatively, you can enjoy all of the titles on offer in two special bundles. The Maggie Stables Collection CD bundle contains 15 titles for only £60 (with free UK postage and reduced international shipping) while the Download Collection bundle contains 22 releases for the low price of £85.
All offers end noon Monday February 29th (UK Time) – exclusively from Big Finish.
