5.0 out of 5 stars Further Furious Flights of Fancy and Fearsome Phantasmagorical Phenomena, 24 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jago & Litefoot (Audio CD)
Three series' in, and the spin-off from the 1977 Doctor Who TV serial `The Talons of Weng Chiang' shows no signs of diminishing in quality. Trevor Baxter's droll Professor Litefoot, and Chris Benjamin's bibulous theatre owner Henry Gordon Jago continue to spark off one another, whilst the addition of Louise Jameson's Leela is the icing on a fantastically fruity cake.
With mysteries including watery zombies surfacing from the Thames, future echoes in the form of a group of modern day scientists slipping in and out of Victorian London, and sinister fairytale figures appearing at the bottom of the garden, there is some great stuff here, and I just hope this series will run and run - particularly as the final story whets our appetites with the appearance of a strangely familiar yet somehow different figure...

4.0 out of 5 stars The dynamic duo of Jago and Litefoot, 26 Mar 2013

I am so glad that I have been introduced to the Jago and Litefoot series. I like the way that there is a theme running through all the stories that relate to one 'baddie'. However, series 3 is very good but the first two series are even better and highly recommended especially if you enjoy listening to stories relating to the weird and definitely creepy. Every series leaves you with a cliffhanger ending so you are encouraged to buy the next. I am listening to the Talons of Weng Chian at the moment which is a forerunner to the series. This is excellent too and great for Dr Who fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fandom's luckiest day, 4 Nov 2011

This review is from: Jago & Litefoot (Audio CD)
Well, this was released 5 months ago and no-one has reviewed it. Doctor Who's finest era was season 12-14. The last story of season 14 was The Talons of Weng-Chiang; a top 5 story and one of the few that is on par with the very best of the 2005+ series. This six part Victoriana-heavy story featured a particularly noticeable pair of characters that eventually became a double act. They are one of the finest, if not the finest double act of the entire series 1963-2011, beautifully crafted by Robert Holmes, Doctor Who's finest writer and script editor.

Henry Gordon Jago and Professor Litefoot were reunited for a Companion Chronicles Doctor Who story Mahogany Murderers (Doctor Who: The Companion Chronicles). Which was so successful that they spawned a mini-series of their own. The fact that Big Finish were willing to commission this and that Christopher Benjamin and Trevor Baxter were willing to participate is an absolute god-send to Doctor Who fandom and therefore worthy of 5 stars anyway.

The second series ends with Louise Jameson (Leela) turning up (bringing a tear to my eye) and so the formidable quartet-minus the Doctor are reunited. It is a great moment for fandom, and so Jameson's character is available for this series.

Bought as a one-off I might only give this 3 stars, but as a succession to the marvellous "The Talons of Weng-Chiang", "The Mahogany Murders" and J&L Series one and two, we are so fortunate to have this series with the original actors, that it simply defaults to five stars, even if the stories might only garner four.
