In Review: Big Finish: Short Trips: The Jago & Litefoot Revival Act 1

The lecture starts at 7:30 and will include an interval.

Synopsis: Doctor Who: Short Trips Monthly is a series of new short stories read by an original cast member.

Release #27 is a Tenth Doctor and Jago & Litefoot story.

Tonight’s lecture to the Club For Curious Scientific Men will be given by Professor George Litefoot, pathologist – assisted by his esteemed colleague Mr Henry Gordon Jago, theatrical impressario – who will recount a sequence of outlandish events in London and Greece, ruminate upon the nature of good fortune (or rather its absence), and provide a surprising account of a mercurial old friend. The lecture starts at 7:30 and will include an interval.

Review: Jonathan Barnes’ “The Jago & Litefoot Revival Act 1” was a wonderful study in character beats and exposition. I particularly enjoyed the shout outs to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and HG Wells.

Christopher Benjamin and Trevor Baxter have developed an almost supernatural rapport. Their rapport fit perfectly with the jointly told tale of London-based extra terrestrial arachnids and eerie gunslingers rising from the Aegean Sea.

The Tenth Doctor connected the seemingly disparate events. Ten wore Eleven’s fez for a badly bungled juggling act, which turned into the perfect cliffhanger for Act 2.
