Brett Summers article for Cult Faction speaks with Big Finish’s producer, David Richardson, on the project and the decision to bring Richard into it:
” … It’s a glorious adaptation, and we’re blessed to have such a brilliant, huge star as our lead. I’ve admired Richard for many years, and to have him back at Big Finish in this production is very special for us indeed.”
