Stargate SG-1: Shell Game available now!  

As mentioned downblog, I recently wrote a Stargate SG-1 audio drama starring Claudia Black (in the role of Vala Mal Doran) and Michael Shanks (as Daniel Jackson) for Big Finish Productions; I'm pleased to say that the direct digital download release has just gone on-line several weeks ahead of shedule, and is available for purchase by clicking on the ad to the left, here. I believe the CD version is currently being pressed and will be in shops by the end of the month.

I'm really pleased with the way Shell Game turned out; there are some great performances from Claudia and Michael, good work by our audio ace Steve Foxon, a neat cover by Alex Mallinson and some spot-on direction by Sharon Gosling. I'll be returning to Stargate audios in the coming months with an Atlantis tale called Zero Point, featuring David Nykl (as Radek Zelenka).

Congrats, James. I'm really looking forward to hearing this one.

Downloaded in the morning, listening to it now. Congrats James on really great story and the performance from Claudia is really, really fantastic. Michael also did great job. I'd be more than happy to read the story too, 'cause if you know English is not my language and understanding the whole thing is impossible for me. Any chance for "Shell Game" being printed any time soon?

Thank you the heads up on the download, James.

I enjoyed listening to Shell Game very much. You balanced Vala's character with Stargate's mythology, and well, their version of "prime directive," equitably.

Well done!

Look forward to more of the audio dramas.

Best wishes, Morjana

Is there a written form? I bought the cd, but I have severe auditory issues so unless reading along with the cd, will not be able to follow it.

There's no script available for any of the Stargate audios at this time.

Big Finish Production have previously published script books for some of their Doctor Who titles in the past, and I believe there has been some discussion about possibly putting PDF versions of scripts up on the company site for download, but as this is a licensed product there may be issues with rights clearances and the like.

I would suggest that if you'd like to see scripts made available, you should drop Big Finish a line at enquiries@bigfinish.com.
