"Director Lisa Bowerman and I have had some long planning lunches (one of the best things about a producer's role) and we have a very long wishlist we're now pursuing. I'm also delighted with the response I've had from the writers I've approached so far, both familiar with and new to Big Finish's Doctor Who ranges. It's too early to be sure or make any firm announcements, but I'm certainly planning a couple of proper Christmas stories and to explore some periods and characters in Doctor Who which may have been forgotten about – and not just with companions either"
