Desert Island Doctors

I just can’t get excited about the forthcoming departure of Jodie Whittaker and Chris Chibnall. Instead I wrote a piece about Doctor Who actors who have been on Desert Island Discs for Cultbox. Desert Island Doctors — Who actors’ favourite music revealed. Enjoy! <– Message Ends —>

Doctor Who: Wicked Sisters review on Cultbox

I mostly enjoyed Doctor Who: Wicked Sisters by Simon Guerrier, and found it a welcome change of pace compared to some other titles. It’s not perfect and while the idea of the Fifth Doctor and Leela wishing to put the tracer twins aka Graceless sisters Abby and Zara out of commission has its merits, I’d…

Paternoster Gang: Heritage 2 review on CultBox

As I said earlier, I enjoyed Paternoster Gang: Heritage 2 and I put a review together for Cultbox. It’s The Paternoster Gang: Heritage 2 review. Snappy title or what! >>> Message Ends <<<

Further Adventures of Lucie Miller Volume 1 review on CultBox

After too long a gap, Sheridan Smith returned in more full-cast Lucie Miller stories with the Eighth Doctor. There’s a bit of an arc to The Further Adventures of Lucie Miller Volume 1, but not so as to get in the way of the storytelling. My thoughts are up on CultBox now: The Further Adventures…

Ravenous 3 review on CultBox

My take on Ravenous 3, the Eighth Doctor, Liv and Helen (plus Eleven…) boxset is available on CultBox: Doctor Who: Ravenous Volume 3 review. Another good set, if dominated by the Eleven rather than the Ravenous. <<< Message Ends >>>

Paternoster Gang Heritage 1: CultBox Review

As I said when I put some thoughts together on Paternoster Gang Heritage 1, I would do a full review. That review is on CultBox: The Paternoster Gang: Heritage 1 review. ((( Message Ends )))

Year of the Drex Olympics review on CultBox

It’s got a tongue-in-cheek title and the April 2019 Doctor Who Short Trips release, The Year of the Drex Olympics is definitely one of the more amusing releases in this range. A Second Doctor story, read by Frazer Hines, and featuring Jamie and Victoria, it’s worth a listen and I put some thoughts together for…

Fourth Doctor Comic Strip Adaptations Vol 1 review

I rather enjoyed The Fourth Doctor Comic Strip Adaptations Volume 01, in fact rather more than I expected to. I wrote a review on CultBox (The Fourth Doctor Comic Strip Adaptations Volume 1 review) but suffice it to say well done to Alan Barnes for his adaptation and I hope we get to hear much…

The Kamelion Empire review on CultBox

I have to take my hat off to fellow writer Jonathan Morris for his rather splendid The Kamelion Empire. It’s the concluding part of a Fifth Doctor trilogy with companions Tegan, Turlough and Kamelion (Jon Culshaw). It’s a cleverly constructed (much like Kamelion itself) tightly performed gem. Why? Read my review here: Doctor Who: The…

Black Thursday / Power Game review on CultBox

February 2019 continued the trio of stories with the Fifth Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Kamelion. It’s a pair of contrasting tales: Black Thursday / Power Game by Jamie Anderson and Eddie Robson, and jolly fine they are too! You want more?! Check out my review on CultBox: Doctor Who: Black Thursday/Power Game review. <+> Message…

Entanglement review on CultBox

I was probably a bit critical of November’s Early Adventures by Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky, but it was set in my alma mater, though a few decades before my time! That aside, Entanglement is a fun if something of parody, and well worth a listen. My review is on CultBox: Big Finish – Doctor Who: Entanglement review….
