UNIT: The Coup is a Big Finish Productions audio drama based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It stars Nicholas Courtney reprising his role as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, the former commander of UNIT (United Nations Intelligence Taskforce). The Coup was given away free with Doctor Who Magazine #351 as a prologue to a four-part mini-series. The Coup occupies the first thirteen tracks on the CD, the fourteenth to twenty-first being occupied by Silver Lining, and the twenty-second to thirty-third occupied by promotions for various Big Finish Productions Doctor Who and Bernice Summerfield audio plays.
From September 2008, Big Finish re-released the play as a free download.
As London faces the return of the Silurians, the UK branch of UNIT is preparing to shut down.
