Day 12 - Your favourite spin off from a TV show

Big Finish produce audio dramas based on several different TV shows. They are perhaps mainly known for their extensive range of Doctor Who productions but they have also done Sherlock Holmes, Dark Shadows, Highlander, Stargate and even 2000AD.

Recently Brian suggested we cover their full run of Sapphire and Steel dramas for British Invaders and they were really fantastic. David Warner and Susannah Harker are both fantastic in the title roles. There's plenty of good spooky stories and the whole cast, production and sound design are just very well done.

I haven't listened to as much Big Finish as I would like to but what I have done has all been terrific. If only time and money were no object. Anyway my favourite spin off from a British Invaders show is the Big Finish Sapphire and Steel audios.


  1. The BF Sapphire & Steel audio dramas are absolutely brilliant. I loved the original TV show and these do the originals justice and are superbly written and acted. Hard to pick a favourite from the three series they did, but All Fall Down always chills me...

    It's just a shame that they didn't get the following the deserved.

  2. Yup, it's a pity there don't seem to be plans for more.
    High hopes for the Blake's 7 audio though
