Independent producers of Doctor Who audios Big Finish have announced that their licence has been extended by BBC Audiobooks through to December 31st 2011!
Of course, this is superb news as anyone who has been following the work of Big Finish will know – and they’re understandably happy!
“We’re thrilled that the license has been renewed,” says executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery, “and we’ve got some fantastic stories lined up for the rest of 2009, and through 2010 and beyond. Not only from the Doctor Who main range, but also the New Eighth Doctor Adventures and the Companion Chronicles, plus additional ranges like The Lost Stories.
“All of us at Big Finish love making Doctor Who on audio, and we feel privileged that the BBC has entrusted us to continue.”
They’re not the only ones who feel privileged! Every fan on the planet – whether they’ve heard a Big Finish production or not – should feel privileged that the audio adventures are in such safe hands, and that BBC Audiobooks are happy for the guys at Big Finish to carry on doing what they’ve done so well over the last 10 years or so.
