Big Finish Announce New Tenth Doctor Short Trips Audio Adventure ‘Free Speech’


Big Finish have announced a new Doctor Who Short Trips audio adventure featuring the Tenth Doctor as portrayed by David Tennant in the TV series. 

Free Speech, written by Eugenie Pusenjak, is the 2020 Paul Spragg Memorial Short Trips Writing Opportunity winner and will be released next month. Pre-order here.  


Head judge Nicholas Briggs said: “We picked Free Speech because it had language at its heart. I love that it is a story in which the words themselves feel so valuable and scarce. It conveys immediate urgency and engagement when you read it and when you hear it spoken. Eugenie’s precision and power as an author really leapt out at me.” 

Alfie Shaw added: Free Speech engages with the fundamentals of storytelling, and what happens when someone limits your ability to tell your story. It’s been great working with Eugenie, and a privilege to see this story develop from the exciting pitch that gripped us all during the judging process.” 

And Emily Cook agreed: Free Speech was one of the first entries I read and it stuck with me throughout the judging process. I suspected fairly early on that it might be the winner! It's a brilliantly Doctor Who-y idea - an intriguing and unique concept, well-pitched and well-executed. And the Doctor that Eugenie has chosen to write for is perfectly suited to this Short Trip. I'm really looking forward to hearing the finished product. Well done, Eugenie. Thank you for sharing your story with us!”

About Free Speech: 

On Skaz, speaking costs money.

Aymius Todd is trapped in a police interrogation. They want to know about his links to the Garrulous Liberation, and his encounter with a man called the Doctor. But, Aymius is running out of words, and if he can’t afford to finish his story, then he’ll never be able to speak again.

Another Tenth Doctor Short Trips adventure, The Shattered Hourglass, by Robert Napton was previously announced and will also be released in December. Find out more here.
