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.
