Jenny's Back! Georgia Tennant To Lead New Doctor Who Audio Adventure Series!
RadioTimes.com have announced that Georgia Tennant is to lead a brand new series of Doctor Who audio adventures for Big Finish as she reprises her iconic role as the Doctor's daughter Jenny.
Jenny was first introduced to fans in the David Tennant era of the show in the 2008 episode, The Doctor's Daughter. She was an artificially created Generation 5000 soldier cloned from the Doctor's DNA on Messaline, effectively making her his daughter. She was militaristic and driven, but she and the Doctor gradually warmed to one another, and Jenny quickly learned to take on board his morals and compassion.
When the Doctor exposed the truth on Messaline to both the human and Hath soldiers, General Cobb of the humans tried to murder him, but Jenny took the bullet instead and apparently died. Heartbroken, the Doctor, Donna Noble and Martha Jones left Jenny interred on Messaline, but she was revived by the gaseous compound released by the recently activated third-generation terraforming device the humans called the Source.
Stealing a shuttle from the humans, Jenny took off into space, hoping to have adventures just like her father's.
And now you'll be able to catch up on those adventures in the new audio adventures. Harry Potter actor, Sean Biggerstaff will also join the cast as Jenny's travelling companion and Poldark's Christian Brassington has penned one of the stories, which will be named "Neon Reign".
Production for the series will take place this summer with a release date in late 2017.
David Tennant is also working with Big Finish on another collection of Tenth Doctor adventures, this time he will team up with Billie Piper as Rose Tyler.
