UNIT theme tune trivia

Apologies if this is the most trivial post you ever read (and I ever make) but I’ve spotted something a bit geeky about the Big Finish theme tune for the new series UNIT stories. It came about while listening to UNIT: Incursions (review coming) and thinking about just how to write a theme tune…

The 8th of March review

The Big Finish 2019 International Women’s Day release was The Eighth of March, with four stories, women writers, director and a full range of well-liked women from across the Doctor Who universe. The motif of the 8th of March is in each tale as an anchor; beyond that no big arc or other distraction. As…

UNIT: Dissolution?

One of the talking points of the New Year special Resolution is this: has UNIT actually been disbanded?

The second boxset in the new UNIT range, UNIT — Shutdown, is a high-octane set of stories covering several locations while packing conspiracies, aliens and technological mysteries into a gripping whole.
