BBC Renews Big finish License Until 2012
The BBC has renewed the Big Finish Audio's Licence to produce Doctor Who audios until 2012 through its BBC Audio branch, the following statement was published to Facebook earlier today from Big finish.
Big Finish is delighted to announce that its licence with BBC Audiobooks to make Doctor Who on audio has been extended for another year, up to December 2012.
“This is wonderful news,” says executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery. “All of us at Big Finish love making the audio adventures of Doctor Who, and after a decade it remains both a thrill and an honour to continue doing so.”
“We have a great and fruitful relationship with both BBC Wales and BBC Audiobooks,” adds executive producer Nick Briggs. “And long may it continue. Big Finish and BBC Audiobooks work alongside each other to provide the best possible range of audio productions for fans of the series. I never forget what a great privilege it is for us to be in this position.”
“We have many plans for the future,” adds line producer David Richarson. “The main range starring Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann continues on a monthly basis, as do The Companion Chronicles. You’ll be hearing more from The Lost Stories and Jago and Litefoot. Plus… we’ve been in talks with Tom Baker, who is eager to join the audio range for a series of full cast plays.”
“Everything was planned up until the end of 2011, so now we can forge ahead with our plans for 2012,” says Nick. “These are exciting times indeed!”
