Big Finish to produce Doctor Who/Torchwood till 2025

bfLogoThe BBC has extended Big Finish’s licence to produce Doctor Who and Torchwood audios until 30 June 2025.

“We very much look forward to continuing to work with Big Finish over the coming years,” says Jan Paterson, Head of Audio Publishing at BBC Worldwide. “The high standards of their productions — quality scripts, impeccable sound design and music, and impressive casting that utilises some of the country’s biggest stars — are a reflection of the care and thought that goes into every audio.”

“It is very rare that a production company is given the luxury of being able to plan so far ahead,” says Big Finish executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery. “Thanks to the faith placed in Big Finish by the BBC we can look forward to many years of story progression and real character development for the Doctors and their companions. We are excited about what the future holds and look forward to the next decade of adventures travelling in time and space.”

“Doctor Who is my favourite thing,” says executive producer — and voice of the Daleks — Nicholas Briggs. “It’s been with me all my life in one form or another. So it’s truly delightful for me that the good old BBC has given us permission to carry on space-time travelling.”

“It’s such an honour for us to tell new stories in the worlds of Doctor Who and Torchwood,” says line producer David Richardson. “The possibilities truly are endless, the potential for ideas is infinite. It’s a wonderful feeling when we have been doing this for seventeen years, yet feel like we’ve only just begun and that the best is yet to come.”
