The Good Doctor by Juno Dawson review

I had the chance to review the latest set of BBC Doctor Who books, marking the arrival of the Thirteenth Doctor. First up is Juno Dawson’s The Good Doctor. The cover gives some clues, but not so as to spoil the reading.

Ghost Walk review

Another month, another great Big Finish main range story! This time it’s the James Goss tale Ghost Walk. My review is on Starburst: DOCTOR WHO 235: GHOST WALK but it’s worth a mention for Barnaby Edwards’s great direction, Sarah Sutton has a lot to do as Nyssa and really the whole Fifth Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and Adric team…

The Missy Chronicles review

I had a read of The Missy Chronicles, and was glad I did. Six intriguing stories covering Missy’s incarnation from six very different authors (James Goss, Jacqueline Rayner, Cavan Scott, Paul Magrs, Peter Anghelides and Richard Dinnick). I had slightly more to say on Starburst: DOCTOR WHO: THE MISSY CHRONICLES. /// Message Ends \\\

Kingdom of Lies review on Starburst

I enjoyed the farce that was Kingdom of Lies, a Fifth Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and Adric story by Robert Kahn and Tom Salinsky and put some thoughts together in a review for Starburst Magazine: DOCTOR WHO: KINGDOM OF LIES. +++ Message Ends +++

The Morton Legacy review

I reviewed the Early Adventures story The Morton Legacy for Starburst. It’s a rock-solid Second Doctor story by Justin Richards with Jamie, Polly and Ben as the TARDIS crew. The review is: THE MORTON LEGACY. +++ Message Ends +++

A Jago & Litefoot Celebration in Starburst Magazine

Just a quick mention, if you happen to see a copy of Starburst Magazine #441 (it’s got a Thor: Ragnorok cover), have a quick look at pages 52 & 53, and you’ll see my celebration of all things Jago & Litefoot. As I wrote it I found I could have filled half-a-dozen pages, and it was a challenge to pick…

Guy Adams interview in Starburst

In the most recent Starburst Magazine (the Bladerunner 2049 issue) I have a two-page interview with Guy Adams, in which he talks Big Finish and more. If you do read it, let me know what you think. Feel free, as well, to drop me ideas for other interviews you’d like. +++ Message Ends +++

Torchwood: The Dying Room review

I had a listen to Torchwood: The Dying Room by Lizzie Hopley and penned some thoughts for Starburst Magazine. It’s set in World War II Paris, and stars Mark Elstob alongside Simon Russell Beale. I liked it, but was left wanting more. My thoughts are: TORCHWOOD: THE DYING ROOM. ^^^ Message Ends ^^^

Myths and Legends book review

I had a read of the Richard Dinnick’s Doctor Who: Myths and Legends collection and put my thoughts on Starburst. It’s a solid collection, but for me needed a little something to really lift it into the must buy category. My full thoughts are: DOCTOR WHO: MYTHS AND LEGENDS. –= Message Ends =–

The Wartime Chronicles review on Starburst

I had a chance to watch The Wartime Chronicles from Reeltime Pictures. John Levene reprised Sgt Benton and even if the story isn’t fully explained, Andy Lane and Helen Stirling wrote an intriguing piece, which runs to just over 30 minutes. The Chronicles collection includes various documentaries seen before on VHS releases, the Nicholas Courtney voice cameo and…

The Pirate Planet novel review

I’ve reviewed the James Goss novel of Douglas Adam’s The Pirate Planet for Starburst. This is a Fourth Doctor and Romana story but is based on more than just the TV scripts. It’s a wonderful book and a great buy if you’ve some Christmas pennies left to spend. My review is here: DOCTOR WHO: THE PIRATE PLANET ***…

Scott Handcock interview in Starburst

The latest issue of Starburst Magazine (#425) has a two-page interview with Scott Handcock I carried out two weeks ago. Scott talks Torchwood and more. It was an excellent interview and had to be trimmed to fit the magazine. I hope the full version appears on-line soon. ))) Message Ends (((
