Big Finish's Doctor Who Audio Licence extended to 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.’
‘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.’
Big Finish are celebrating Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary by releasing a special audio story featuring all surviving classic Doctors. You can hear the trailer for this below:
