Jenny, the Doctor’s daughter, is back and ready to save planets, fight monsters and save the day once again! Though maybe not in the same manner as her father…
Georgia Tennant stars in four brand new full cast audio adventures from Big Finish Productions. Forget diplomacy and patience. When there’s fun to be had, Jenny – first seen in the 2008 Doctor Who television episode The Doctor’s Daughter – and sidekick Noah (the calming influence played by Sean Biggerstaff) are sure to end up in as much trouble as ever.
In an interview with the Radio Times, star Georgia Tennant said: “It took a while for me to want to give that character further life. I think mainly because I felt like it was kind of a perfectly formed character… she disappeared off into the universe and that felt like a lovely full stop – with a little question mark after it. And that was nice.
“So I felt like if I brought her back, I wanted it to be the right thing to have done. I didn’t want people to be like, ‘Oh, here she is again!’ – so it took me a long time and it was quite a creative process with Big Finish to figure out how that would work. So it took a couple of years actually.”
“Saddle up for some fun!”
Script editor Matt Fitton explained further: “This range has a different tone from a lot of the things Big Finish produces – it’s almost overtly comedic. Georgia, who is also associate producer, wanted these releases to be enjoyed by everyone. So you don’t need to be steeped in Doctor Who lore to understand it. A key note for the range was to make it fun.”
And producer Emma Haigh added: “It’s great to have Jenny and Noah back and I’ve loved getting to know them, their world and their adventures. This box set takes us on a great roller-coaster of a ride where we learn a little more about our heroes’ histories and those of their enemies. Saddle up for some fun!”
The cast also features guest appearances from Michael Brandon (The Stolen Earth), Simon Fisher-Becker (A Good Man Goes to War), Siân Phillips (I, Claudius) and Sara Powell, fresh from her triumphant appearance as Mary Seacole in the Doctor Who episode, War of the Sontarans.
Jenny – The Doctor’s Daughter: Still Running
Jenny was made as a soldier but has a Time Lord’s heritage – and that Time Lord is the Doctor. Exploring the universe, Jenny found a friend – Noah, a mystery boy from nowhere. Together they’re ready to save planets, fight monsters, and save the day with nothing but wit and instinct – and an awful lot of running.

Calamity Jenny by John Dorney
