River Song series 6 review on CultBox

I enjoyed The Diary of River Song Series 6 from Big Finish, and shared my thoughts in a review for CultBox. It’s focussed on contriving ways for River to visit all the past Doctors and while I think we’ve had that idea now, I did enjoy this set. Others may be less keen on seeing…

Jago and Litefoot lost story Claws of the Scarab

Here’s something unusual: writer Jonathan Morris shares not one but two iterations of a rejected outline for a Jago & Litefoot story. It would have been called Claws of the Scarab but never happened. Jonathan is worthy of much praise for being so forthcoming about his writing process.

Jago and Song!

Big Finish has announced two more boxsets for River Song (RIVER SONG SERIES 6 AND 7) with the news of Christopher Benjamin reprising the part of Henry Gordon Jago opposite Alex Kingston in a Paul Morris story The Talents of Greel. Excellent news! === Message Ends ===

Jago & Litefoot Forever review on CultBox

I put together some thoughts on the final outing for Messrs Jago & Litefoot over on CultBox: Jago & Litefoot Forever review. It’s a good tribute, not just to Trevor Baxter (now no longer with us), but the series as a whole. I’m sure if you’r a fan you’ve already listened and formed your own view;-|…

Centring on Jago’s search for Litefoot, it also features Ellie Higson and Inspector Quick, with a great mix of characters including the Sixth Doctor, Leela, Queen Victoria…

A Jago & Litefoot Celebration in Starburst Magazine

Just a quick mention, if you happen to see a copy of Starburst Magazine #441 (it’s got a Thor: Ragnorok cover), have a quick look at pages 52 & 53, and you’ll see my celebration of all things Jago & Litefoot. As I wrote it I found I could have filled half-a-dozen pages, and it was a challenge to pick…

Jago & Litefoot Series 13 review

Lumme! It’s forty years since Henry Gordon Jago and Professor George Litefoot first came to our notice in Talons of Weng-Chiang and here they are in their thirteen Big Finish boxset! Still fresh and still wonderful after nearly seven years and around 60 stories. What’s the secret? Why is this set such fun? Read on! The stories

Jago & Litefoot Revival – Act Two review

Gadzooks! No sooner have we enjoyed The Jago & Litefoot Revival Act One, than Jago & Litefoot Revival Act Two makes an appearance. Complete with two covers (the one I’m not showing is rather a spoiler;-) the action continues at pace, as Professor Litefoot and the Tenth Doctor make haste for the TARDIS!

Jago & Litefoot Revival – Act One review

Corks! It’s now a massive forty years since Jago and Litefoot first met the Doctor in Talons of Weng-Chiang and here we are with an anniversary release of The Jago & Litefoot Revival Act One. To make this event something special, producer Ian Atkins has broken the mould of the Short Trips range with not both Trevor Baxter…
