Audio drama producers Big Finish have had their licence with AudioGO to make Doctor Who plays extended up to December 2016.
‘It’s an absolute privilege to be entrusted with making audio adventures for Doctor Who for at least another three years,’ says executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery. ‘And it’s wonderful that we will be able to continue our excellent working relationships with our friends and colleagues at AudioGO and Cardiff.’
To celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary, a special celebration story, The Light at the End, will be released in November, starring Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann.
‘This year will mark my seventh anniversary as executive producer at Big Finish,’ says executive producer Nicholas Briggs. ‘For me, it's a clear indication of how much fun I've been having with the work and the people I'm privileged to work with that I am looking forward to the possibilities opening up with this latest extension of our licence so much. And by that time, I'll have been in the role for ten years! Bring it on, I say. We have a great relationship with AudioGO and there will be exciting developments ahead.'
‘We have so many more tales to tell with the first eight Doctors and their companions,’ says line producer David Richardson. ‘We can promise that 2016 will see more of your favourite ranges – plus maybe a brand new range or two that will surprise and delight. Certainly, as a team, we could not be happier that we will continue to be able to make our Doctor Who dreams a reality.’
