Dark Universe details released

Big Finish has released details of the January 2020 main range release Dark Universe. It’s good timing as I’m just listening to the end of Ravenous 4 and recently blogged about Sophie Aldred. It’s the big Seventh Doctor, Ace and The Eleven story by Guy Adams. It’s looking great on paper…

Legacy of Time: Split Infinitive review

Next stop for the Legacy of Time is Split Infinitive. I won’t give much in the way of spoilers, but I will assume you’ve listened to Lies in Ruins so I might put in some details from that story I didn’t use in its review. John Dorney has the writing honours, and we have the…

The motif of the 8th of March is in each tale as an anchor; beyond that no big arc or other distraction. As…

Muse of Fire review

Of December 2019’s two main range Doctor Who releases, Paul Magrs’s The Muse of Fire is far and away the most quirky. The idea of the Seventh Doctor, Ace, Hex, Iris Wildthyme, Panda and others might seem a lot for any story to handle, but rest assured Paul Magrs is up to his highest standards in The Muse of Fire. You want…
