Louise Jameson has made her Doctor Who writing début, scripting an audio for the upcoming third season of The Fourth Doctor Adventures for Big Finish. The actress, who plays Leela opposite Tom Baker, has written the seventh story in the season, The Abandoned, collaborating with Nigel Fairs. It will be released in July 2014.
“We all know that Lou is a really brilliant and confident actor,” says producer David Richardson, “but it’s been a joy to learn that her skill set also extends into great scriptwriting. I saw My Gay Best Friend, the stage show she wrote with Nigel Fairs, and was deeply impressed by its wit, charm and depth of emotion. And when, shortly afterwards, Louise asked if we might consider her writing a Doctor Who, the reply was an instant ‘yes’.”
“Wow!” adds Louise. “I can’t believe that the idea I pitched to Big Finish was accepted, and here it is completed. Huge thanks to Nigel Fairs for co-creating. No spoilers, but… beware your own mind…”
