Special Releases were stories released by Big Finish on special occasions and that don't fit in other ranges. The grouping was changed significantly, following the redesign of Big Finish's website in 2019.

Doctor Who Magazine Free Gifts Edit

Several Big Finish stories have been released alongside issues of Doctor Who Magazine, and together they were considered a sub-range of the Special Releases in the BF website[1]. After the 2019 Big Finish website redesign, only The Veiled Leopard was still considered part of the range.
