New details on Big Finish’s Jago and Litefoot 12

Big Finish have confirmed the story details, writers and cast for the October release of Jago & Litefoot – Series 12; four fresh adventures for Henry Gordon Jago (Christopher Benjamin) and Professor George Litefoot (Trevor Baxter):

12.1: Picture This (by Justin Richards)

An art gallery is robbed, and the curator killed. That might not seem of interest to Jago and Litefoot. But this is the fabled Scarlet Gallery – where the paintings are said to be haunted. And the curator has been drained of blood, as if killed by a vampire.

Bizarrely, the only painting that has been stolen is in itself quite unremarkable compared with the others in the gallery. But even so, Jago and Litefoot soon find themselves caught up in events that could end in their deaths – or worse…

12.2: The Flickermen (by Paul Morris & Simon Bernard)

Jago is rather scathing of the new art of cinematography. Even so, he accompanies Litefoot to see a demonstration at a fairground. But this is no ordinary film. Can creatures live inside the film – or even escape from it?

Ellie recalls childhood stories about the ‘Flickermen’, and elsewhere people start to flicker in and out of existence. By the end of their adventure, Jago and Litefoot will themselves be film stars. But what they see when the film of them is shown will give them both pause for thought…

12.3: School of Blood (by Paul Morris)

Acting on a tip off about the possible source of the vampiric murders that are now plaguing London, Jago and Litefoot investigate a girls’ school. Due to a misunderstanding, Litefoot finds himself offered a job at the school, while Jago keeps watch on Ellie who they both think is behaving oddly.

But before long, they both discover that all is not as it should be at the school. Can Jago and Litefoot track down the vampire before it claims more innocent victims?

12.4: Warm Blood (by Justin Richards)

Ellie tells Jago and Litefoot that she has been in contact with a group of vampires and can lead the investigators to them. But can they trust her? With more victims turning up, Jago, Litefoot and Ellie make their way to a house that is supposed to be haunted, and which could be the vampires’ base of operations.

But what they find there will surprise and horrify Jago and Litefoot. Can they survive their encounter with the vampires when the Old One has decided that they must die?

Talking about the new stories, script editor and writer Justin Richards commented: “As we work on a series of Jago and Litefoot, we’re also thinking ahead about what to do with the next series. So as our heroes battled the Master in Series 11, we decided that at the end of it, the Master should leave something behind – some legacy that would haunt Jago and Litefoot throughout the next series. We also wanted to give the character of Ellie (Lisa Bowerman) a bit more to do. So remembering her vampire past, it seemed like a good idea to make her a villain… So we did…”

Cast details (including TV legend Ronald Pickup) have also been added to the release page. Jago & Litefoot – Series 12 can be pre-ordered now through the Big Finish website for a discounted price of £30 on CD and £25 on Download. Watch this space not only for further news of Series 12, but with pictures surfacing on Twitter of the Infernal Investigators in studio in July, perhaps more…
