FAQ For Big Finish Buyers

Does the vinyl come with a download of the story?

  • If you buy the vinyl from the Big Finish website, the download will be added to your account. (Note: if you buy from Amazon or another online retailer, this will not be possible.)

    How many copies can I buy?

    • While we do not have the ability to restrict orders on the website, anyone buying more than one copy will have the multiple orders cancelled and refunded.

    I’ve already pre-ordered a download. Can I cancel my order and buy a vinyl copy instead?

    • We do not recommend cancelling your order. There will only be a very limited number of vinyl copies available from the Big Finish website. If you are lucky enough to secure one, we can arrange a refund of your initial download order.

    Can I ‘upgrade’ my download pre-order to a vinyl pre-order?

    • Sorry, due to the very limited number of copies of the vinyl LP edition, we are unable to facilitate such an offer.

    Big Finish, in association with Demon Records and BBC Studios, today announces the opening of pre-orders for the limited edition Time Lord Victorious vinyl starring David Tennant and Paul McGann.

    Due for release via the Big Finish website and other online retailers on 16 April 2021, Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious – Echoes of Extinction comprises two separate adventures that listeners can play in any order and features a different incarnation of the Doctor on each side. This very special double-A side LP conclusion to the Time Lord Victorious multi-platform event is issued on split red/blue vinyl.

    Originally planned to launch in selected UK ASDA stores in November 2020, this very special double-A side LP conclusion to the Time Lord Victorious multi-platform event was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. But from April the adventure, issued on split red/blue vinyl, will be available for pre-order from a number of online stores, including Amazon and the Big Finish Website, enabling fans worldwide to secure their own copy.

    A digital download of the story will also be available globally from the Big Finish website and is now available for pre-order at £8.99. (Note: products are sold in £ sterling on the Big Finish website but will be converted to local currency upon checkout.)

    Stocks of this release are strictly limited and are expected to sell out quickly. A list of other international online retailers taking pre-orders will be published as and when they become available. Please note that Big Finish has no control over the product pricing and shipping costs of third party retailers.

    David Tennant and Paul McGann star in Doctor Who Time Lord Victorious

    Big Finish has today revealed its final contribution to the Doctor Who multi-platform adventure Time Lord Victorious with a new limited edition vinyl – starring David Tennant and Paul McGann.

    Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious – Echoes of Extinction comprises of two separate adventures that listeners can play in any order and form a greater narrative.

    This very special double-A side vinyl Doctor Who release features a different incarnation of the Doctor on each side and will be released on split red/blue vinyl.

    Trapped, a haunted monster waits to consume new victims. It needs help. It needs a doctor. Unfortunately, it also needs to kill whoever it meets. Thrust into immediate danger, and on the back-foot, it will take all of the Doctor’s ingenuity to triumph.

    Two interlinked adventures. Two Doctors. One foe.

    The stellar supporting cast also includes Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who, Broadchurch), Burn Gorman (Torchwood, The Expanse), Mina Anwar (The Thin Blue Line, The Sarah Jane Adventures), Kathryn Drysdale (Benidorm, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps) and Paul Clayton (The Crown, Him and Her).

    David Tennant said: “The Doctor in Time Lord Victorious is a different character. He’s slightly lonelier, slightly scratchier, when he doesn’t have one of his pals to hold him back.

    “But it’s nice to tell stories from different times of his life. You just have to try and make sure you’re in the right mindset. The script is fascinating. I’ve only got one side of it, but I’m very aware there’s more to this story, that there’s another Doctor on the other side of the disc. I look forward to getting my LP so I can listen to it all.”

    Paul McGann added: “I’ve read this script twice through and I’m still none the wiser. I’m more confused after the second time than I was after the first. It’s only while working on it that I’ve become aware of how it’s going to be structured.

    “It really appeals to me, the idea that it’s in two parts, on two sides of vinyl. I think it’s fun for people listening. Part of the excitement is when the different incarnations meet… or nearly meet.”

    Writer and Producer Alfie Shaw said: “Director Scott Handcock has pulled together an amazing who’s who of Doctor Who for the cast. We’ve got alumni from the series as well as Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.”

    “It’s been an honour to create Big Finish’s first commissioned-for-vinyl story, and utterly thrilling to write for both the Eighth and Tenth Doctors.”

    A digital download of the story will be released from the Big Finish Website on 04 December 2020, and is now available for pre-order at £8.99.

    Ordered mine, been looking forward to this, really like the coloured vinyl.
    I think when they do the normal black vinyl it looks abit bland

    I,ll hold out for a limited CD release, if not it won,t make much difference to the Mcgann trilogy. I would have liked this but its my chosen format or not at all.

      Its confirmed that there won’t be a CD release as this story was commissioned by Demon Records who only release vinyls. I mean I would have rather have had a CD release, but I always buy physical big finish releases, so the vinyl was the only option for me in this situation.

    Considering how doomed this release has been, I’m assuming nothing until it is in my hands.

    Went for Big Finish (was lucky enough to have a day off today and be in front of my own computer when the BF e-mail arrived) despite being an Amazon Prime member, chiefly for the download being thrown in (and that’s how I mostly listen to my BF purchases) – and the fact that the last 2 BBC ‘narrated soundtrack’ releases that just came as 2-disc sets in a gatefold (Underwater Menace and Horror of Fang Rock) that I ordered from them both arrived with quite pronounced creases across the outer sleeve, which was disappointing.

    Unfortuantly unavailable from Amazon in Northern Ireland, so have had to have a friend in England get it for me. Really close to eBay with this one, and with how fast Big Finish sold out, would have been an expensive one. Probably some Brexit thing for why we can’t get it.

    • Deano

      Managed to order on Amazon which is still available but sold out almost as soon as up to order on the probably because of the free download + extras still just glad to secure a copy as there’s no way I’d had got one if it had just been Asda.

      Hi Mrs Croot. I had the same issue for NI delivery earlier this morning but it seems to be available for delivery to NI now. At least, I was able to order a copy! Good luck!

    I’ve exchanged e-mails with Big Finish as I have already pre-ordered the download and ideally would like to purchase the vinyl from them too (if there is availability). Apparently if that is the case (and availability is expected to be very limited) it would be possible to email them to request a credit for the download already purchased. They don’t recommend cancelling (I didn’t know that you could!) prior to ordering a copy of the vinyl in case you aren’t able to get one.

      I cannot understand why Demon records/Big Finish would now be making this limited if it is to be available for pre-order. Surely they would have some idea of demand for this from previously issued Time Lord Victorius products from them and would make it available for fans who have collected the other merchandise to get this too.

    Do we know if a download will come with a purchase of the LP direct from Big Finish?

    • bryan

      March 5th, 2021 - 7:49pm

      Yes. It says so on the BF website.


      Does the vinyl come with a download of the story?
      Yes, if you buy the vinyl from the Big Finish website, the download will be added to your account.

      Will copies be limited to one per person?

      While we do not have the ability to restrict orders on the website, anyone buying more than one will have the multiple orders cancelled and refunded.

    I still imagine it will go quick on pre order as these vinyl releases are normally limited.

    Oh superb news. I am sure its been a nightmare for all concerned, So thank you to the teams involved. for making this happen.

    This is good news. Should now be no problems with acquiring this to complete the Time Lord Victorius Series. I only hope making it available this way does not mean ASDA have lost interest in these LPs and we still get the other LPs that were due to be released at ASDA either from ASDA or available online.

    • MJS

      March 5th, 2021 - 11:32am

      I think it might be because by April it’ll be almost 6 mo this overdue. Stores still don’t know when they will be able to sell non-essential items so this is great news. I hold out hope for the other BF/ASDA releases now

  • Rich L

    January 27th, 2021 - 4:25pm

    Looks like April now. Just got an email from Demon Records:


    Thanks for contacting Demon Music.

    Yes the release date will be moving but we’re still in talks with ASDA about what day they would like to release it. At the moment we’re looking at April but this is not yet confirmed. As soon as we have a date confirmed with ASDA, we will let you know.

    Thanks for your patience,

    • Peter

      Thanks for that, good to know. I’m guessing that all of the vinyl releases will now be delayed due to pandemic. (I’m keeping my eyes peeled as I promised a fan who lives abroad I’d get copies of some titles for them).

  • Deano

    It has been announced unsurprisingly by Demon records and Asda that it will not now be released in February but only after the lockdown has been lifted.

  • morgstersmash

    January 5th, 2021 - 10:10pm

    Will this be released as a cd or not?

    • booboo

      January 6th, 2021 - 8:46am

      no, its a demon records commissioned product who only do LP’s but it will be available on a download
