We're apparently going to be getting some stories with Leela and some stories with Romana I. MORE STORIES WITH ROMANA I !!
I am very excited about this. Yes I am.
However... I listened to a few of those very random Four and Yates in a haunted cottage audios that BBC produced and they weren't all that good. I don't know if that was the BBC or the actors. Baker T. didn't seem very engaged (it was very reading off the page) so...
Still, Big Finish makes very snazzy and high quality stuff, that plus Tom's legendary voice should be a great combination.
Well, that sounds like something worth looking forward too... ;D
I listened to one of the Four-Yatesy audios too and wasn't that impressed with it either. No disrespect to Richard Franklin, but maybe Baker, T, will be more energised (for good or ill! ;D) working with actors that he has history with, so to speak?
But still, could be good - could be very good indeed. You can never have too much Romana, of whatever numeral, but we haven't had any new Romana I in a very, very long time have we?
Edit: Hmm, Tome Baker, he's the chap who writes all the big thick, unwieldy books, right??
I'm still in a state of high excitement at the prospect of working with Louise and Mary and with ONE OTHER. 18 stories!
Any idea who the "ONE OTHER" could be?
The most likely other person he'd be working with would be John Leeson. If not in the Leela ones, K-9 should certainly be in the Romana ones, no? However, I can't think of why Tom wouldn't be able to mention him by name, unless they haven't finalized him and he's not allowed to or something.
The other thought is that BIg Finish is supposedly introducing a new companion to their range next year, one that they're being all hush-hush about. So it could conceivably be them.
Four (or anyone over 3 years old) trying to conduct a conversation with Teletubbies would be very funny.
"You know, when you're a kid, they tell you it's all 'Grow up, get a job, get married, get a house, have a kid'... and that's it. The truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It's so much darker, and so much madder... and so much better."
