Behind the scenes interviews.

1)Despite being part of The Companion Chronicles, this story focuses on two characters who have never been "official" companions of the Doctor.
2)This story served as a pilot episode for the Jago & Litefoot series which was confirmed after this title's success.
3)Jago recalls the "Weng-Chiang incident". (Tv: The Talons of Weng-Chiang).
4)This is also the first Companion Chronicles story to feature three credited separate actors, as director Lisa Bowerman has a small role as barmaid Ellie.

Whats The Story.
Professor George Litefoot: the eminent pathologist who advises the police in some of their grisliest cases, Henry Gordon Jago: the master of ceremonies at the Alhambra Theatre, These are two very different men from contrasting strata in society who became firm friends & collaborators after their adventure with the Doctor and Leela battling the evil Weng-Chiang.
Some years later, Jago and Litefoot have defeated dangerous denizens of the daemonic darkness together, They have stood side by side against threats to the British Empire but when a body is found on the banks of the River Thames & Litefoot's post mortum reveals that it is actually a highly detailed wooden mannequin, their most dangerous adventure begins.

I'm too young to remember the episode actually being on - far too young, in fact - but watching the video, I agree with most fans. The Talons of Weng Chiang is one of THE best Doctor Who stories EVER, EVER, EVER, rivalled only, perhaps, by 'The Pyramids of Mars' and 'Blink'. This is partly because of its main side characters, intellectual police doctor Professor Litefoot and bluff-and-bluster theatre man Henry Gordon Jago. It's long been my opinion, akin to many other fans, that the two lovable Victorian gentlemen deserve their own spin off series, and now they've very nearly got it with this one-off Big Finish audio drama. It's a one off in Companion Chronicles terms in that the Doctor doesn't appear and it's dealing with one off companions - Litefoot and Jago never actually entered the TARDIS, let alone travelled on it, but their experiences the Talons of Weng Chiang more than make up for the fact.

The format of the Companion Chronicles is, of course, that an old companion of the Doctor's returns to recount a story, with one other actor. This story takes place in a pub, where Litefoot and Jago, who have been teaming up to investigate unusual happenings since their encounter with the fourth Doctor and Leela, have met up to discuss their latest adventure. It's a creepy one. The idea of a body being dragged out of Thames is always a good beginning in any Victorian mystery, and it gets creepier from there. The body is actually a cleverly disguised wooden mannequin, and what happens next is very much a la ghost story writer M.R. James. It just gets creepier from there. Be prepared for a gruesome description in the middle of part two. In my opinion it was rather overdone (I thought I was going to see my dinner again). Enough said.

11th in the latest series of doctor who companion chronicles. These are talking books involving actors who played companions to the doctor on tv reprising their role to tell an all new story. But this one is a rather special release that breaks the usual format.

In 1977 Christopher Benjamin and Trevor Baxter played theatre owner Henry Gordon Jago and pathologist Professor George Litefoot opposite the fourth doctor in Doctor Who - The Talons Of Weng Chiang [1977] [DVD] [1963]. It was suggested at the end of that tale that the two might have further adventures. And now thirty two years later, they do.

This story is complete on one disc with two episodes, running twenty five and thirty five minutes respectively. And it involves Litefoot and Jago meeting in a pub to discuss their latest case. It involves living wooden mannequins, mad scientists, criminal gangs, strange electric machinery and a deadly threat to the nation! But fear not, because Litefoot and Jago are on the case.

The format of the story involves the two characters talking and one relating to the other how their investigations went. Some excellent writing really creates the setting and the spirit of the thing well, with some convincing descriptions of Victorian London and some excellent moments of witty dialogue.

This does present a slight problem pacing wise at first because it's well within Jago's nature to procrastinate, and you may find yourself wanting to tell him to get to the point a few times in the first part.
