With the release of their first season imminent, Big Finish have announced a second season of adventures for Talons of Weng Chiang characters Henry Gordon Jago and Professor Litefoot!
The 19th century investigators – who assisted the Fourth Doctor and Leela in the 1977 adventure – first returned in Big Finish’s The Mahogany Murderers, one of The Companion Chronicles, in 2009. Reaction to this excellent drama was so good that a full season was announced, starring Christopher Benjamin and Trevor Baxter reprising their roles as Henry Gordon Jago and Professor Litefoot.
And now, a second season has been announced!
â€œWe had such a fun time making the first series,â€ says producer David Richardson, â€œand Iâ€™m really proud of it â€“ Iâ€™m optimistic that people will be scared, excited and amused by these new audio adventures. Thereâ€™s a real buzz about it â€“ and Iâ€™m delighted to say that as a result series two is already in a very advanced state of preparation.â€
Season Two, will be released individually and in a five-disc box set, in January 2011 and is available for pre-order now at an exclusive discounted rate from Big Finish.
Season Two will feature appearances by David Collings (The Robots of Death), Vernon Dobtcheff and Simon Williams (Remembrance of the Daleks).
We’ll have a review of the first episode of Season One later this week!
