Jago & Litefoot was an audio series from Big Finish Productions. The stories involved Henry Gordon Jago and George Litefoot, characters first introduced in the Doctor Who story The Talons of Weng-Chiang. In the series, they solved mysteries involving paranormal or alien phenomena in 1890s London. Christopher Benjamin, Trevor Baxter and Conrad Asquith reprised their roles as Jago, Litefoot and PC Quick (promoted to Sergeant Quick, and subsequently to Inspector). They were joined in the regular cast by Lisa Bowerman as barmaid Ellie Higson.

Jago & Litefoot

The titular duo in their only televised appearance, The Talons of Weng-Chiang.

A Companion Chronicles release entitled The Mahogany Murderers was released as a standalone story, but served as a backdoor pilot for a potential series. After favourable reception, a season of four stories were announced for release as a boxed CD set as well as digitally on 30 June 2010.[1][2] Weeks before the release of the first series, a second series was confirmed for release in January 2011,[3] and continual popularity saw a third series begin recording in August 2010 for a June 2011 release.[4] The series subsequently adopted a bi-annual release pattern, with fourteen series having been released until the end of the series.[5][6]
