The characters of Jago and Litefoot became quite popular with fans, and for years rumours was abound about a planned spin-off centred around the duo solving crimes in Victorian London, and it was even seriously considered by the BBC a couple of times. While the spin-off never made it to TV, Jago and Litefoot, along with PC Quick, eventually ended up getting their own AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho [[http://www.bigfinish.com/Jago-and-Litefoot spinoff range.]] It also occasionally features the Fourth and Sixth Doctors, as well as Leela.

* ThoseTwoGuys: Jago & Litefoot. Litefoot, the most iconic example of the Creator/RobertHolmes double act. Jago owns the theatre where Weng-Chiang is hidden and his agent plies his trade, and Litefoot is a police pathologist and the Doctor's de facto landlord for the story. Both important to the plot to the point that they are more important than the Doctor until the finale. In fact; Jago and Litefoot were so popular they eventually got their own series.
