I reviewed Paternoster Gang: Heritage 4 for Cultbox, and I have to be up front and say I didn’t feel this set worked very well, and failed to deliver on the potential of the series as a whole. Even Henry Gordon Jago wasn’t able to bring this to life and the stories failed to deliver…
Full details for Paternoster Gang: Heritage 4
Big Finish has released more information for the release of Paternoster Gang: Heritage 4, due later this month (October 2020). It may only just be autumn, but no fear, Christmas is coming! Full details below…
Jago joins the Paternoster Gang for Christmas 2020!
It’s a one-off rather than a regular occurrence, but there can only be so many mysteries to go round even in Victorian London! As part of Paternoster Gang: Heritage 4, Henry Gordon Jago will be helping Mme Vastra, Jenny and Strax! It’s also a Christmas story!
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…
Paternoster Gang: Heritage 1 thoughts
I’ve just finished Paternoster Gang: Heritage 1 and thought I’d capture some observations (review coming). These should be pretty much spoiler free, at least regards content, though you may wish to come back to this if you’ve not heard the boxset yet.
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;-|…
One last outing for Jago & Litefoot
Surprise but welcome news: there will be one more outing for Jago & Litefoot! Called Jago & Litefoot Forever, it’s written by Paul Morris and will be released in May 2018. 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!
