Like September before it, October 2019 brought another new writer to the Big Finish fold via the Short Trips range. Carrie Thompson wrote The Second Oldest Question, which Sarah Sutton narrates. As you’d expect it’s a Fifth Doctor and Nyssa story.
September 2019 brought us Doctor Who – Short Trips: Dead Media a first Big Finish piece for writer John Richards and a first for a Jacob Dudman vocalised Twelfth Doctor. It’s set during the Doctor’s time at university in Bristol, though no Nardole who has borrowed the TARDIS to pop back to 1974’s Eurovision Song…
Congratulations to Ben Tedds (twitter: @BenTedds42) on winning this year’s Paul Spragg Opportunity. His Twelfth Doctor story Best Laid Plans is read by Jacob Dudman and will be available on December 29. Well done!
There’s a massive Short Trips sale on this weekend thanks to Big Finish, expiring 23:59 UK time on 30 September 2019. Loads of bargains (some at 50% reduced) and a chance to get mine own Rulebook if you’ve not heard it yet! Full details here. Enjoy!
I reviewed July’s Doctor Who: Short Trips – Battle Scars for CultBox. It’s a Ninth Doctor story, with Nick Briggs reading and former Paul Spragg competition winner Selim Ulug with writing credits. It’s a Titanic tale [sic!] and a good one. My review is: Doctor Who: Battle Scars review. ((+ Message Ends +))
I put together some thoughts on the June 2019 Julian Richard Doctor Who Short Trips: The Same Face for CultBox. The story is a Third Doctor tale with Jo Grant and performed by Katy Manning. The review is: Doctor Who Short Trips: The Same Face review. <<< Message Ends >>>
