What a terrific neighbour to have had!
If you ever see him again, you can tell him that you’ve won for him at least one loyal listener in me, and congratulations in co starring in chronicles crammed with creativity! ;)
he says that Jago & Lightfoot series six is already being looked at, and series seven is a distinct possibility!
Thats good- I did hear talk of that in the Big Finish Jago and Litefoot preview podcast of series 4, and in Vortex Magazine, so that's very good news. However, in a way because of that, the 'cliffhanger' at the end of series 4 took me completely by surprise, but in a very nice way!
Being utterly out of order, I've only just got a copy of The Mahogany Murderers- the Companion Chronicle that started it all- and no wonder- it's a great well told tale in its own right- and a perfect pilot.
I found it interesting that the writer Andy Lane originally penned it for Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) if that was to have another season in the early 2000s. (I was a fan of the 1960s original when it was repeated on BBC 2 on Friday nights way back, and though I thought the Vic and Bob one had its moments, it didn't surprise me that another series wasn't commissioned.) I could well imagine Jack Yeovill's proposition to Litefoot at the climax of the story would have once been to Marty, but I don't think it loses any of its impact.
