Jenny: the Doctor’s Daughter is coming to Big Finish

Coming soon from the Worlds of Doctor Who – Jenny: the Doctor’s Daughter! She’s back, and the universe better be ready for her.

Georgia Tennant (née Moffett) returns to the world of Doctor Who as the title role in Jenny: The Doctor’s Daughter in four new adventures from Big Finish, made in arrangement with BBC Worldwide. Jenny originally featured in the Doctor Who television episode, The Doctor’s Daughter, from Series 4 back in 2008.

“I’m so thrilled to be joining forces with Big Finish to bring Jenny back,” Georgia tells us, “As we head into the 21st century, FINALLY a female Time Lord in charge of her own spaceship… oh wait!”

“Having worked with Georgia before at Big Finish,” says producer David Richardson, “I was very keen to make this series happen – and how brilliant to be able to bring Jenny into her own audio adventure series. I’m very proud of the female role models we have in our catalogue – River Song, Bernice Summerfield, Sarah Jane Smith, Charlotte Pollard among them – and in Jenny we have another brave, bold, intelligent woman who risks everything to save and protect others.”

The last we saw of Jenny, the fantastic creation of Russell T Davies and Stephen Greenhorn, was her revival after a fatal shooting at the end of episode six, series four of Doctor Who, and her setting off to explore the cosmos. These new adventures will find out what exactly she saw, and where she ran off to amongst the stars.

Joining Georgia Tennant will be her own companion, much like the Doctor! Sean Biggerstaff (Harry Potter) plays Noah and follows Jenny in her adventures through time and space.

Georgia, also associate producer of these adventures, has been instrumental in continuing the legacy of the character in the Doctor Who universe. As the wife of David Tennant and daughter of Peter Davison – both former incarnations of the Doctor – the rebellious Time Lord spirit certainly runs in the family!

“I am very excited about discovering the new adventures of Jenny – a rogue element in the universe of Doctor Who,” says executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery. “There is so much we can do with the character and I’m really glad that Georgia has agreed to not only come back to play the part, but also to participate in moving the series forward.”

These four new adventures come from popular Doctor Who writers Matt Fitton and John Dorney, joined by Christian Brassington from BBC One’s Poldark, and Adrian Poynton, writer of BBC Three’s White Van Man. Available as a box set, the stories consist of:

  • Stolen Goods by Matt Fitton
  • Prisoner of the Ood by John Dorney
  • Neon Reign by Christian Brassington
  • Zero Space by Adrian Poynton

Jenny: The Doctor’s Daughter is available for pre-order for its release in June 2018 at £23 on CD or £20 on download from Big Finish and will remain at this price until general release when it will be available for £35 on CD or £30 on download.

    Looks interesting, but what I really want is a Paternoster Gang spin off!

    Nice to see Jenny back. Nice to see Oliver Wood in Doctor Who. Nice to see someone who looks suspiciously like Cyborg too.

    Looks like Cyborg has left the Justice League and has come to the Doctor Who universe for a bit.

    You might want to add Hank Marvin’s “Without a Word” album to the soundtrack section 😉 He did a cover of the Doctor Who theme for his CD

    I’ve been saying i want this ever since Big Finish got the New Who license. Yes! With her returning in the Titan Comics too,I hope it’s only a matter of time before she heads to he small screen once more.

    It was such a shame they never persuaded her to return to the series and I,m surprised its taken Big finish this long to give her, her own spin off. Its belated but i think its the perfect home for this kind of thing. I hope one day they can persuade maisie williams and Jenna coleman to enter those booths at some point.

      No, please, anything but a Clara and Ashildr spin-off.
      *Huddles in the corner, rocking back and forth*

      Putting aside my hatred of Clara and Hell Bent, it doesn’t seem as though either Jenna or Maisie will be free anytime soon. And even then, it seems from a recent convention panel Jenna doesn’t want to do any Big Finish after a bad experience (I think it might have been that Destiny of the Doctors audio she did).

      Did she actually say she wouldnt do it though? I know maisies calendar is full what with the final thrones and the Xmen spin off, but i,d gladly have them on some spin off adventure together, unless of course they return to the series with them both together for the 60th which is some time off anyway.

      I believe Jenna was joking about hating Big Finish in a “Oh god i’d never return there again!!!” style of joking, But as some other panels shes expressed interest in doing Big Finish and said “They haven’t asked me” so, you never know!

      I think that Jenna hated doing the narration/Matt Smith impersonation, not necessarily voice acting period. So theoretically she’d still be good for full-cast.

      Does anyone know when Jenna said this?

      It was in a recent Q&A at a convention. Basically, it went around Twitter.
