Of course this announcement comes in our Big Finish month; but it’s been announced that Big Finish now has the licence to produce audio productions based on Doctor Who and Torchwood until at least 2025!
In a statement, Jan Peterson, Head of Audio Publishing at BBC Worldwide said; “We very much look forward to continuing to work with Big Finish over the coming years… The high standards of their productions — quality scripts, impeccable sound design and music, and impressive casting that utilises some of the country’s biggest stars — are a reflection of the care and thought that goes into every audio.”
With this news, it’s also been confirmed that we can expect a third series of the exceptional Torchwood as Big Finish has said; “The audio adventures of Torchwood were launched to great acclaim in September 2015, based on the popular spin-off series by Russell T Davies. To date series stars John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Gareth David-Lloyd, Kai Owen and Naoko Mori have all returned to their roles and 2016 and 2017 will see many exciting developments in the range…”
