Christopher Benjamin returns as Jago with Trevor Baxter as Professor Litefoot. Also starring is Conrad Asquith as Sergeant Quick and Lisa Bowerman as Ellie, while David Collings joins the cast as Gabriel Sanders.
“Jago and Litefoot have gone their separate ways!” announces producer David Richardson. “And Jago isn’t happy about this at all…
The first in the series is called Litefoot and Sanders and is written by Justin Richards. In it, Professor Litefoot teams with new sleuthing partner Gabriel Sanders, as they pursue the perpetrator of a number of sinister murders.
“When we came to cast the third part of this friendship triangle, we considered a number of great character actors. We set our heart on David Collings - and we were thrilled when he said yes.”
The second story called The Necropolis Express by Mark Morris, which centres on strange events in a remote graveyard. Renowned actor Vernon Dobtcheff guest stars as Reuben Mord.
Next up is The Theatre of Dreams by Jonathan Morris, a surreal tale in which Jago secures a new act for the Palace Theatre – but it’s one that could prove fatal to the audience...
The series concludes with The Ruthven Inheritance by Andy Lane, in which the excavated bones of the aristocratic Ruthven family reveal a terrible secret. Simon Williams plays Lord Ruthven.
And if that wasnt good enough news, a third series has also been commisioned.
“And it doesn’t end there,” continues the producer. “A third season has already been commissioned – and it will be a rather interesting change of style…”
