Enjoyable addition to the series

Jago and Litefoot is one of my favourite Doctor Who spin-off, and is often better than the original series. Great performances and sound-design as usual from this series, stories are not alway uniformly strong, but there are some gems. Would definitely listen again.

Very entertaining but marred by poor recording

Every bit as good as the first two, with a couple of nice twists but some of the recording and editing is really not up to the BBC's usual standard. For example a scene involving a child was obviously recorded in multiple chunks and the join is so bad it's distracting and lumpy. Part three is also quite short at just over four hours.

Another great collection!

Big Finish does it again! Another great collection for the Doctor Who spin-off characters Henry Jago and Professor Lightfoot. Christopher Benjamin and Trevor Baxter are entertaining as always. And the incorporation of the character of Leela from the original Talons of Weng-Chiang storyline back in the 1970’s was a brilliant choice. Louise Jameson is a fantastic actress who knows her character well and brings a new dimension to the series. The writers also stepped it up and deliver us another great set of stories, a nice mix of stories different from one another but with an over-arching story arc to tie them together. I particularly enjoyed Swan Song by John Dorney which I think is one of his best. And the teaser at the end made me smile when I heard who would be joining next series. No spoilers, you will have to listen to find out.
