David Tennant’s NTA Special Recognition - His Reaction

Pictured above is Georgia Moffett Tennant with her father, her husband, and some guy named Peter, who I think might be her doctor or something. 

I didn’t go to the Long Island Who convention last week, but I listened to the Big Finish podcast and there was a fun bit of (possible) news in there. 

Nicholas Briggs was interviewing Paul McGann, Colin Baker, and Peter Davison. At one point Davison pressed Briggs (who is executive producer at Big Finish) to provide more work for his real-life daughter Georgia Moffett—perhaps by making audio adventures with Jenny, the Doctor’s cloned daughter from the David Tennant episode of televised Doctor Who “The Doctor’s Daughter” broadcast in 2008. Initially Briggs replied in a neutral tone, but then he hemmed and hawed a bit, making noises about it being a good idea, and a possibility if certain things fall into place. As he went on, he then seemed to chide Davison slightly about confidential information, and then there is what sounds like an edit in the podcast and the foursome suddenly begin talking about something completely different.

Not everyone is a fan of that episode, of the character of Jenny in general principle. Personally, it’s not my favorite episode, but the character could certainly be used in interesting ways. I like the idea of a tough adventurer, who tries to use her parentage as a commodity to negotiate advantages during her adventures. I don’t know if that’s the approach they would take at Big Finish, but I’d bet cash money we’ll see the publication of a Doctor’s Daughter Adventures boxed set some time before the end of 2017.

I really wish Jenny hadn’t been “killed” off at the end of this episode, because it would have been such an interesting dynamic to see the Doctor and Jenny travelling together! It really would have been fantastic.

Also, it’s nice to see Donna and Martha actually looking like friends of each other rather than just two friends of the Doctor who have been lumbered together.
