Jenny – The Doctor’s Daughter starring Georgia Tennant and Sean Biggerstaff (Harry Potter) as her companion, Noah is available for download. The character first appeared in Series 4 during a war on the planet Messaline. She was born when the Tenth Doctor’s (David Tennant) cells were used in the progenation machine creating a new soldier, Jenny. Left wander the universe alone, Jenny stumbles around, seeking adventure, some trouble and a lot of running. Not unlike, dear old Dad.
Georgia Tennant was thrilled to bring back Jenny in her own series. The actress who is also the associate producer for the series declared, “I am terribly proud of Jenny, of the character we have all created. I feel like she is a woman girls and boys can look up to. She is next in a long line of brilliant female characters from the Whoniverse, and I hope she will be around for a long time yet.”
The series features some of Big Finish’s best-known writers including Matt Fitton, John Dorney and Adrian Poynton. Christian Brassington (best known for his role on Poldark) writes his first script for Big Finish.
Blogtor Who had a chance to sit in during a recording one of the episodes. We will have some behind the scenes details and an interview with Sean Biggerstaff and director, Barnaby Edwards later this month.
Jenny – The Doctor’s Daughter is available now at £23 on CD or £20 on download from Big Finish.
Jenny – The Doctor’s Daughter – Synopsys
1.1 Stolen Goods by Matt Fitton
Jenny is new to the universe and keen to explore – but in unfamiliar spaceships, accidents happen. She’s lucky to have someone on-hand to help. A slippery, fast-talking someone, called Garundel.
Soon, Jenny is mixed up in cons and explosions. But she also finds something strange, inexplicable, and as new to the universe as she is. She’ll call him Noah.
1.2 Prisoner of the Ood by John Dorney
Moving into Leafield Crescent, Angie Glazebrook is surprised by an unexpected caller. But not half as surprised as Jenny, suddenly transported to a suburban close on twenty-first century Earth.
And that’s nothing to the surprise of the neighbours when alien visitors start appearing. Visitors with tentacled mouths, carrying death-dealing orbs. The Ood have come for their prisoner…
1.3 Neon Reign by Christian Brassington
The Dragon Lord rules Kamshassa with fear. Half the oppressed population live in an addicted stupor, while the other half are forced into service. Factories belch poisonous smoke, and Dragon Guards patrol the streets, condemning dissenters to the Eternal Fire.
When Jenny and Noah arrive, it’s only a matter of time before they start a revolution.
1.4 Zero Space by Adrian Poynton
Out in deep space, in the middle of – quite literally – nowhere, Jenny and Noah believe they’ve found a safe haven. And, very possibly, some answers. But the space station holds many secrets, and it won’t be long before Jenny’s past catches her up.
Bounty hunter COLT-5000 is on her trail and will stop at nothing to hunt down its quarry… even in Zero Space!
