Professor George Litefoot: the eminent pathologist who advises the police in some of their grisliest cases. Henry Gordon Jago: the master of ceremonies at the Alhambra Theatre. These are two very different men from contrasting strata in society who became firm friends and collaborators after their adventure with the Doctor and Leela battling the evil Weng-Chiang.
Some years later, Jago and Litefoot have defeated dangerous denizens of the daemonic darkness together. They have stood side by side against threats to the British Empire. But when a body is found on the banks of the River Thames and Litefoot's post mortum reveals that it is actually a highly detailed wooden mannequin, their most dangerous adventure begins.

An entertaining throwback to Dr. Who 1977
A very entertaining throwback to the 1977 days of Dr. Who. How thrilling that Big Finish thought to revisit two much loved characters from the Philip Hinchcliffe era of Dr Who. Christopher Benjamin and Trevor Baxter step right into their old roles as Jago and Lightfoot, brilliantly sending us back in time to a period after the meet the Doctor in the The Talons of Weng-Chiang. Andy Lane also does a fabulous job writing a script that embodies the heart and soul of the original Who world, while giving us something new to sink into. I'm excited to know there is even more of Jago and Lightfoot in the Big Finish Productions archive. Well done by all involved.
