Finally! That's fantastic. Part of what's kept me from folding Benny into my listening schedule is the simple fact I didn't want to invest in $400 worth of CDs. Here's hoping that 5-11 go digital as well.
Just moments ago, I clicked on my saved link for "released but not downloaded" titles from BF, and was shocked to see a whole bunch of titles that I knew I owned!
Then I realized: OMG, they are FINALLY catching up with the digital releases of early Benny. I legally bought them all from BF on CD a few years ago, they are sitting in a box on the other side of my living room as I type this.
I've been expecting this for some time now, but I'm glad it finally is happening.
I have my own MP3 rips, so now I have to decide if I should replace them these from BF. In the end, I think I probably will.
And I'm glad this might open up the Benny Backstory to more listeners in the future.
Congratulations on making this happen, Big Finish!
I already bought the lot on CD on E-bay some years back and ripped them, but all day long I've been debating about whether to get these just for the joy and wonder of seeing them in my downloads folder.
I only had one of these on CD. (Back when I got a bundle of Ice Warrior stories and BF were kind enough to send me the CD since there was no download option and didn't even charge me shipping.) To see it in my app, I had to go my account on the website and click on "Rebuild Download List." It's the bottom option on the side under My Downloads.
I know aussiedoctorwhofan already posted the general news announcement here, but I thought it would be worth noting that hidden in there is the news that series 5 and 6 are now also available in download format.
So... what are the must-have stories on the crop currently on sale? I need, recs, people!
Also stunned to realize Oh No It Isn't! was, apparently, the first Bernice Summerfield audio they recorded. Lisa Bowerman sounds like she'd been playing the role for years.
I've compiled all of my Big Finishes purchases into a single massive document, alongside those on my wishlist (bolded, right-justified). Check it out to see what I've already listened to (or soon will), or to recommend me something new to listen to!
Apologies in perpetuity for my many typos (FUAC) and poor memory.
