The Moons of Vulpana review

May 2019 and the main range release is a Seventh Doctor story, The Moons of Vulpana, the second with punk-werewolf Mags (Jessica Martin) on-board the TARDIS. Written by Emma Reeves, it explores the backstory of Mags’s people by taking a trip to her homeworld of Vulpana. Like last month’s Monsters of Gokroth, it’s a very…

Return to the Web Planet review

Back in the distant days of 2008, when the Big Finish main range still came with a free single-disc adventure for subscribers, the fifth [but labelled vi] such gift was Return to the Web Planet.

Black Thursday / Power Game review on CultBox

February 2019 continued the trio of stories with the Fifth Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Kamelion.

Check out my review on CultBox: Doctor Who: Black Thursday/Power Game review. <+> Message…

Doctor Who: The Hunting Ground review

At the end of a positive glut of seventh Doctor stories, the Big Finish main range sneaked in a Sixth Doctor story, The Hunting Ground by AK Benedict. It’s a charming story of Icelandic intrigue, police work and enough science fiction added to make it a Doctor Who story without getting in the way of the story. It…
