    Big Finish announces Susan Foreman's Return Views: 652
     Saturday, January 10 2009 @ 07:14 PM EST
    Here's is some fantastic news posted on Big Finish's official website:

    [Quote Forty-five years after she left Doctor Who, Carole Ann Ford is returning to the role of the Susan Foreman in An Earthly Child. This special hour-long audio play from Big Finish Productions finds the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) visiting the planet Earth in the 22nd Century to check the progress of the grand-daughter he left behind. Things have moved on since he was last there: Susan has become a key player in rebuilding the remnants of a world decimated by a Dalek invasion, and she has a son from her marriage to David. And Alex Campbell, the Doctor's great-grandson, is played by Jake McGann ­ the son of Paul...

    From its inception right through to the recording day, this production felt very special indeed, says executive producer Nicholas Briggs. Marc Platt has written an emotionally-charged and dramatic script, which delivers everything fans could wish to see in such a momentous reunion between the Doctor and Susan. And Paul McGann was just thrilled to be working on this episode ­he absolutely embraced the exploration of Doctor Who's own mythology, and Jake was just perfect in the role of Alex. It was also lovely to work with Carole again ­ the scenes between the Doctor and Susan will, I have no doubt, bring a tear or two to the eyes of listeners.

    The cast also includes Leslie Ash (Men Behaving Badly) as Marion Fleming and Ian Hallard as Duncan. An Earthly Child will be given away free in December 2009 to the subscribers of Big Finish's monthly Doctor Who range.


    This is wonderful news-McGann's Doctor is perfect for such a sentimental reunion-but I'm actually a little surprised that BF is sending out this short episode as a freebie to subscribers.

    This should be an exciting year for the Doctor Who audio adventures: the 5th Doctor finds himself in another race to find the segments of the Key to Time, Sir Alistair meets Polly, Lucie Miller and the 8th Doctor continues their travels in sixteen half-hour episodes, and the 7th Doctor introduces Hex to the Daleks.

    Wow! That's fantastic. I love when we get something like thios that adds to the Doctor Who mythology. I always wondered how Susan made out after she left her grandfather. Did she live as long as the Doctor? Did she ever regret leaving the Tardis? Did she ever miss Gallifrey and what did she think of the Time War?
    I think we could use more than one story covering her post Tardis life. --Billy

    Oh the phantom Piper!

    I couldn't agree more! I know it was a comedy and certainly not canon, but I've always wanted to hear BBC Radio 4's Whatever Happened to Susan Foreman? It's available as an extra on the Dalek Invasion of Earth DVD, but I always forget to listen to it.
