With the release date of Jenny – The Doctor’s Daughter approaching, Big Finish has let slip some exciting details.
Georgia Tennant reprises her role as the Doctor’s Daughter, Jenny, in four brand new adventures this June. Big Finish have revealed “we can’t tell you exactly what Jenny will get up to, but one things for sure – there’ll be LOTS of running!”. The cover art promises just that; teasing the return of the Ood, a mysterious cyborg and a companion for Jenny.
Jenny will be getting her own companion for this series, much like the Doctor. Her companion comes in the form of Noah, portrayed by Sean Biggerstaff (who you may know for portraying Oliver Wood in the Harry Potter series). This box-set also marks the first time that Big Finish have used the Ood in their wonderful audio adventures, with an episode entitled ‘Prisoner of the Ood’.
Big Finish have additionally released a synopsis for each story within the box-set.
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 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!
Upon the revival of her role as Jenny, Georgia told Big Finish “I’m so thrilled to be joining forces with Big Finish to bring Jenny back. As we head into the 21st century, FINALLY a female Time Lord in charge of her own spaceship… oh wait!”
Jenny – The Doctors Daughter is due for release in June 2018 and can be pre-ordered now from the Big Finish website.
