What’s Next for Jago & Litefoot?
Those intrepid investigators of infernal affairs Jago & Litefoot have been recently pleasing fans with the release of their sixth (!) series of spin off adventures from the world of Doctor Who thanks to the good people at Big Finish.
But now that the latest series is out of the way, is that it for the London based duo? Will we hear from the friends of the Doctor ever again? Of course we will!
Hot off the heels of series 6, Big Finish have announced the stories, actors and writers that will form series 7 of Jago & Litefoot and these new adventures sound like they won’t disappoint! Big Finish revealed the following information:
Once more starring Christopher Benjamin and Trevor Baxter (who first appeared together back in the 1977 serial The Talons of Weng Chiang) as the titular sleuths, the Jago & Litefoot – Series Seven box set also guest stars Louise Jameson as Leela, Steven Miler, Lizzie Roper and Philip Pope, alongside old favourites Lisa Bowerman and Conrad Asquith as Ellie and Quick. The stories are:
7.1 The Monstrous Menagerie by Jonathan Morris
A trail of clues leads Jago and Litefoot to 221B Baker Street – the (empty) London home of the Doctor, where they can rest and plan their next move. Then a meeting with Arthur Conan Doyle leads them into the strangest case of the investigating career…
7.2 The Night of 1000 Stars by James Goss
For one night only, Leela has returned to Victorian England. And for one night only, everyone will get to perform. There are stories to tell – but there may not be a happy ending.
7.3 Murder at Moorsey Manor by Simon Barnard and Paul Morris
Jago and Litefoot’s quest takes them to Moorsey Manor, where Sherlock Holmes fans are meeting to mourn the anniversary of their hero’s death at the Reichenbach Falls. But why is someone trying to kill them?
7.4 The Wax Princess by Justin Richards
Jago and Litefoot learn the greatest secret in the Empire – Jack the Ripper has escaped!
Mentions of the Doctor, the return of Leela, 221b Baker Street, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the Reichenbach falls and Jack the Ripper, you couldn’t ask for a more action-packed series!
Due out in April 2014, Jago & Litefoot Series 7 is available for pre order now on CD or via download from www.bigfinish.com .
