Jenny, UNIT, River Song, Counter-Measures–a Big Finish sampler

In the wake of the whole COVID-19 pandemic, Big Finish–most famous for their original and licensed Doctor Who audios–began to release a variety of projects for free on a weekly basis.  On top of that, they’ve also had other bits and pieces from their catalog available to sample.  Some of these are “proper” Doctor Who adventures, some are licensed from other sources, and others are completely original.  This time around we’re looking at a bunch that are Doctor Who-related, but all featuring side-characters from the series.  Spin-offs, basically.

Big Finish has been pretty generous with all this free product, but each one also serves as a sampler to tempt me to buy other material.  Do they work?

Doctor Who: Leviathan [Big Finish – Lost Stories]

Up until now, I haven’t been terribly impressed by the quality of the Lost Stories range of Doctor Who audio dramas from Big Finish.  My waning interest combined with the fact that the preview made it sound like one of the adventures, Leviathan, was to do with a demonic forest spirit that stole people’s souls (the sort of thing I find off-putting) almost led me to skip this particular entry together.  But I gave it a go, and I’m glad I did.
