So I just started listening to Series 2 of Jago and Litefoot and am currently listening to the Necropolis Express. From where I'm at it's obvious that Gabriel Sanders isn't dead and Ellie is going to become a vampire. I'm loving the set and I want to see what people think. The reveal at the end of Litefoot and Sanders that Ellie is dead made me get a bit teary eyed it was done so well.
I know nothing is perfect, but this remains my very favourite series of Jago and Litefoot. Terrific stories, brilliant turns from the leads and an EXCELLENT villain. Funny and terrifying - so a 'perfect' from me!
I thought, alas, that it fell prey to the curse of the Sophomore Effort. It's not at all bad, more consistent than Series One (by virtue of having nothing as mixed as Similarity Engine, though Necropolis Express lacks a proper ending,) but lacking its predecessor's spark. It's also lumbered with a rather unsatisfactory arc (though Mr. Collings makes a brilliant villain,) and
I'm six series in so far and Series 2 is still my favourite. Although the introduction of Leela and other familiar faces in Series 3 & 4 works really well (who could ever say no to more Louise and Colin?), part of me will always prefer the earlier series when the stories were a bit more removed from the Worlds of Who.
