Big Finish Doctor Who audio stories
Bang-Bang-a-Boom! Nekromanteia

Jubilee was the fortieth monthly Doctor Who audio story produced by Big Finish Productions. It was the second encounter with the Daleks for companion Evelyn Smythe played by Maggie Stables. It was also the a story that author Robert Shearman would use as the basis for his television story Dalek two years later when Doctor Who returned to television screens.

Publisher's summary Edit

Hurrah! The deadly Daleks are back! Yes, those lovable tinpot tyrants have another plan to invade our world. Maybe this time because they want to drill to the Earth's core. Or maybe because they just feel like it.

And when those pesky pepperpots are in town, there is one thing you can be sure of. There will be non-stop high octane mayhem in store. And plenty of exterminations!

But never fear. The Doctor is on hand to sort them out. Defender of the Earth, saviour of us all. With his beautiful assistant, Evelyn Smythe, by his side, he will fight once again to uphold the beliefs of the English Empire. All hail the glorious English Empire!

Now that sounds like a jubilee worth celebrating, does it not?

Notes Edit

  • Jubilee was the first release to use the Dominic Glynn arrangement of the Doctor Who theme. It was also the first to have a full-colour CD insert.
  • This was the first Big Finish audio drama to feature the Daleks that wasn't listed as part of the greater Dalek Empire story arc, not including their brief cameo in Seasons of Fear.
  • Nigel's habit of collecting dwarves was based on Frederick William I, the emperor of Prussia, who had an obsession with collecting giants and would parade them up and down as toy soldiers until they dropped down dead.[source needed]
  • Robert Shearman later used plot elements of this audio as the basis for his Series 1 television story Dalek. Shearman also used the surnames of actors Jane Goddard and Kai Simmons as names of characters in the production.
  • Both Dalek and various Torchwood stories feature Jubilee Pizza pizza boxes as an homage to this story. A Jubilee Pizza leaflet is also seen in the television story The Lodger.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 21 and 22 September 2002 at The Moat Studios.
