The former journalist is a lifelong fan of the series and was understandably thrilled to learn that his story had been accepted. A True Gentleman is a story featuring the Third Doctor, Bessie and is set in Scotland…
â€œItâ€™s based in the Highlands, as my mum comes from Scotland, and is about a young boy who gets caught up in a mini-adventure with the Doctor â€“ something we all dream.
â€œWhile he experiences the Doctor dealing with an inter-galactic, diplomatic incident, the boy gets the puncture in his bike tyre mended into the bargain.â€
To complement Jamieâ€™s story perfectly, Big Finish cast Katy Manning to narrate it, adding a welcomne veneer of credibility; Manning starred as Jo Grant alongside Pertwee from 1971-1973.
â€œShe is an amazing actress and has done such a fantastic job with it.
â€œThe story is told by the boy in the first person, and she has made a tremendous job of bringing him to life.â€
Short Trips Volume 1 is released on November 30th on CD and MP3 and features 8 titles (including one written and read by Sixth Doctor Colin Baker) – find out more at www.bigfinish.com!
