Captain Yates Returns

Big Finish have revealed that Richard Franklin will return as Captain Mike Yates in Doctor Who: The Companion Chronicles tale The Magician’s Oath, scheduled for release in April.

Richard Franklin appeared as a regular companion to the Earthbound Third Doctor (played by Jon Pertwee) between 1971 and 1974.  The character of UNIT Captain Mike Yates was a senior assistant to Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart, and fought both the Master and the Daleks as well as spending considerable effort trying to pull Jo Grant.

To celebrate, Richard Franklin will be interviewed at www.bigfinish.com. All questions will be from Big Finish listeners, so listeners are encouraged to send questions in – if you have anything to ask Richard please send it to info@bigfinish.com, where the best will be included.
