Short Trips King of the Dead reviewed

the king of the dead coverMay 2015 brought us the Monthly Short Trips story King of the Dead. Narrated by Sarah Sutton, this half hour piece is the first release to have been written by Producers’ Assistant Ian Atkins. It is a Fifth Doctor story with Nyssa and Tegan as companions.

Tom Price triggers more Torchwood news

Andy_Davidson_(Torchwood)In a suspiciously interesting chance phone call, BBC Radio Wales DJ Tom Price, aka Sgt Andy Davison from Torchwood, is disappointed not to be approached to be in the new Torchwood audios from Big Finish. What else is there to do but phone your old chum Kai Owen and find out what he knows? By chance Kai is on and the whole conversation is (for how long I don’t know) the subject of a BBC feature: Tom stages a Torchwood reunion Live on the Radio Continue reading
