I did wonder whether Helen was referencing Lady Christina series 2, actually. I appreciate that the dates don’t necessarily line up, but who can tell what year anything is any more. I was amazed to remember that Donna Noble Kidnapped was out this year!
* I wonder if its Rose Tyler Series 2 as that is the only new range to come out last year ( 8th of March was more of a sample box set for Female Centric Ranges- UNIT New Series, Benny, Paternoster Gang and Diary of River Song. from another comment on here suggesting The Further Adventures of Lucie Miller- Nick Briggs has stated that there are plans for more Lucie Stories but depends on the availability of Sheridan Smith and Paul McGann and since Sheridan is now a mum i am not sure if remote recording can be possible with her)
* Really curious about this given that there are 12 stories in total so that means two more scripts are yet to be written, we have confirmation that Briggs is writing one but announcing the boxsets before recording is kinda odd and a tad worrying but Dorney said that things should be fine
It’s not terribly odd to have boxsets announced before recording - a lot of the ongoing series like the 8th Doctor and War Doctor Begins have a good chunk available before they’ve even been written! It’s unusual to have an announcement before anything’s recorded, sure, but I suspect that was to gazump leaks. But think of it as early announcement rather than late recordings, and you’ll see why I said it’s fine and nothing to worry about (not ‘should be’ fine, it ‘is’ fine).
(Oh and I think all 12 are written, just they might not all be locked down yet. Again, with some of the releases in 2022, this is perfectly fine and usual!).
Well Lady Christina was released on August 2018 and was probarly recorded several months before that but yeah dates and years are kinda blurring together these days
ah okay yeah true
and interesting i thought that all of them would have been submitted to the bbc at a one time kind of deal and get approval at the same time
