Big Finish: Cherie Lunghi - The Emerald Tiger

Big Finish have announced that Cherie Lunghi will join Peter Davison for their forthcoming audio adventure, The Emerald Tiger. The actress joins the Fifth Doctor team of Janet Fielding, Sarah Sutton and Mark Strickson for the story that opens a new mini-season in April 2012.

Writer and director Barnaby Edwards said:
I wrote the part of the brittle and beautiful Lady Adela with Cherie in mind. Her husky, experienced and emotional voice seemed to fit the part perfectly. Of course, I didn't think I'd get her, but I spoke to her agent on the off‐chance. Cherie read the script and, much to my delight, said yes!

It's always a pleasure to work with this particular TARDIS team. They're just as fun and sparky off‐mic as they are when we're recording. That magical dynamic established in the TV episodes is still as strong today as it was thirty years ago – if anything, more so!

The cast also includes Sam Dastor, Neil Stacy, Vincent Ebrahim, Vineeta Rishi, Trevor Cooper and Gwilym Lee.


The adventure is available to pre-order from Big Finish.
