For the love of stories. note 

Big Finish is a British company that produces audio plays, mostly Sci-Fi and licensed from franchises originating in other media. Not to be confused with Grand Finale. Named after Steven Moffat's Press Gang.

Their productions include audios for:

They have also produced audio adaptations of various classic literature including The Phantom of the Opera, Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Invisible Man, and several wholly original productions including:

  • ATA Girl, a WWII drama
  • Blind Terror: The Gods of Frost, a gothic horror
  • Cicero, a thriller set in Ancient Rome
  • The Human Frontier, a science fiction serial
  • Jeremiah Bourne in Time, a time travel-adventure series
  • Shilling & Sixpence Investigate, a murder mystery
  • Transference, a crime thriller

  • Acting for Two: You'd be hard pressed to find a Big Finish story, that didn't have at least one actor playing multiple parts.
  • Production Posse: A great number of actors, writers and directors have regularly contributed to several Big Finish productions, despite many of them not being permanent members of the company. Acting wise, two of the most prolific mainstays are Lisa Bowerman, and the late David Warner.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • There was nearly a range based off of the cult American sci-fi show Firefly, which never happened either due to money or rights.
    • Had John Hurt not passed away, he was very much prepared to more stories with Big Finish beyond his signature role as the War Doctor. Playing the title character in The Invisible Man gave us taste of what it could've been.
