Big Finish licence renewed

The audio adventures of Doctor Who are set to continue, with Big Finish announcing that their licence to produce the stories has been extended to December 2012.

Says Executive Producer Jason Haigh-Ellery:
This is wonderful news. All of us at Big Finish love making the Audio Adventures of Doctor Who, and after a decade it remains both a thrill and an honour to continue doing so.

Producer David Richardson commented on the ranges:
We have many plans for the future. The main range starring Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann continues on a monthly basis, as do The Companion Chronicles. You’ll be hearing more from The Lost Stories and Jago and Litefoot. Plus… we’ve been in talks with Tom Baker, who is eager to join the audio range for a series of full cast plays.

Executive Producer Nick Briggs added:
We have a great and fruitful relationship with both BBC Wales and BBC Audiobooks, and long may it continue. Big Finish and BBC Audiobooks work alongside each other to provide the best possible range of audio productions for fans of the series. I never forget what a great privilege it is for us to be in this position.

Everything was planned up until the end of 2011, so now we can forge ahead with our plans for 2012. These are exciting times indeed!
