    It's not Colditz, it's the trilogy where she came back, "A Thousand Tiny Wings" and the other two!

    Big Finish is pleased to announce details for six more tales of horror and intrigue as part of its popular Dark Shadows range. The new subscription package kicks off in July with Operation Victor.

    The adventure, by Jonathan Morris, sees Quentin Collins (David Selby) finally leaving London in the 1940s. Kidnapped and taken to Germany by the British Secret Service, he finds himself up against sinister Nazi scientist Doctor Moloch (Terry Molloy). Accompanying Quentin is the enigmatic Sally Green (Fay Masterson).

    The adventures continue with Speak No Evil and The Last Stop. Written by Scott Handcock, Speak No Evil tells the story of what happens when a sinister circus visits Collinsport, whilst The Last Stop, by David Llewellyn, sees a man trapped on a never-ending train journey and forced to make a choice that will change his life forever.

    October's and November's releases are both by writers new to Big Finish. Dreaming of the Water, by Kymberly Ashman, is a psychological thriller set at Windcliff Sanatorium. The Haunted Refrain, by Aaron Lamont, tells the story of a bored housewife discovering an abandoned gramophone player. And then discovering what's trapped on it...

    The year ends with A Collinwood Christmas, by acclaimed writer Lizzie Hopley. The story sees one member of the Collins family being offered the opportunity to turn his life around. The entire future of Collinwood depends on what choices he makes on a cold and lonely Christmas Eve...

    Interesting. It's a shame it's not Series 2 of Jago & Litefoot, they did an offer on S1 a while ago and I got it then.

    £5 is the right price for a sale on a main range CD. £10 just doesn't cut it, some of those are years old and you can get them for that price on Play at any time!

    There are only three Sara Kingdom plays, Si was referring to my previous post about the offers coming up next week.

    I'm slightly bemused that the Short Trips bundle is only £20 when they're retailing at £7.50 each. In any case I shall almost definitely be getting those and the Drama Showcase plays (again a steal at £15 for 4).

    There was a deliberate mistake in my original post as there are in fact only 3 plays in Sherlock Holmes season one (not including the short story reading of "The Speckled Band") which having just checked originates from the advert in Vortex.

    I'm not sure I will ever need the Drama Showcase plays.

    Well I certainly wouldn't buy them at full price but I'm glad Big Finish aren't afraid to try new things occasionally and hopefully they can't possibly reach the nadir of the comedy releases range...

    I think it's a shame we haven't had more of the classics range that started so promisingly with The Phantom of the Opera.

    I've just ordered them :-) I have to say, the BF website isn't the easiest thing to navigate your way around.... but it's better than it was.

    To be honest I'm not much of a fan of these limited time offers as I like to have a bit of time to consider before parting with my hard earned cash.
    I was bit annoyed that the one they were running over the Jubilee weekend only ran for the Saturday and Sunday as with all the goings on I forgot about until the Bank holidays by which point it had already finished much to my irritation.
    I suppose BF are getting more sales from these than they were from their previous sales of all the releases everyone's either already bought or in some cases (ahem Robin Hood, comedy releases) doesn't want to buy but I think they'd get more sales (particularly from me in relation to the Dark Shadows offers I've missed out on) if the offer windows were slightly longer.

    It's a marketing ploy, isn't it? Every time the balance sheet looks a bit red, they plump some oldies up at half price for two days and make a bit of an event of it.

    They're not the only company to do this!
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    It's extremely telling with regards what's sold and what hasn't. The same items crop up in the sale year after year, suggesting they must have hundreds of unsold CD's of them in a warehouse somewhere.

    Hmmmm I don't like it. To me, the Eighth Doctor will always have long hair and the frock coat.

    I wonder if he comes back for the 50th, whether McGann will get his way with his "new" costume?

    I love the new outfit!

    It's about time he ditched that awful frock coat!

    Hmm... will this tempt me to buy it? What do you think?
