The cover for Doctor Who: The Companion Chronicles – The Last Post is now online. The story stars Caroline John as Liz Shaw, in her last performance before her death in June.
“Carry’s death was a very sad blow for everyone at Big Finish, and the whole Doctor Who world,” says producer David Richardson. “We deliberated for a long time as to whether we should hold back the release of The Last Post until 2013, but Carry’s husband Geoffrey Beevers kindly suggested we should go ahead as planned. It is what Carry would have wanted.
“Carry really enjoyed working on this script, and the chance to work with Rowena Cooper as Liz’s mother, Emily. It was such a happy recording day that we had made plans for a sequel, which was storylined. But it was not to be.”
The Last Post will be released in October.
Nick Briggs and Benji Clifford present another edition of all the latest Big Finish audio drama news. Special guest star, Ian McNeice (Churchill in Doctor Who). There's also a behind-the-scenes feature on Charlotte Pollard Series 2.
