Full-cast audio dramas based on the BBC sci-fi series are now being made available to download for free every Monday on the Big Finish website, Radio Times reports.

'Doctor Who' fans are being encouraged to register for a free Big Finish account, which will allow them to listen to 'Doctor Who: The War Doctor - The Innocent', the first of the free releases from Big Finish.

The audio drama stars John Hurt and tells the story of the War Doctor's recovery on the peaceful planet Keska.

Big Finish recently suspended studio sessions amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, the company is still in active production using remote recording.

Meanwhile, Billie Piper recently thanked 'Doctor Who' fans for the impact the TV show had on her life.

Writer Russell T Davies live tweeted during a watch-a-long of 'Rose' - the official reboot of the sci-fi show, which introduced the actress as Rose Tyler - to mark the 15th anniversary of the episode, and Billie also took to social media to reflect on her own 'Doctor Who' experience.

Billie - who first starred on the iconic sci-fi show back in 2005 - posted on Instagram: "In the midst of everything I forgot to say hey and yay and Happy Birthday. 'Rose' and the Dr Who reboot was 15 today.

"Love to all you fans out there. You positively changed my life for ever and so did you @russelltdavies63 and so did you #rosetyler. (sic)"
