Short Trips: Erasure review

March 201 ended with the release of the Short Trips story Erasure. It’s noteworthy for several reasons. First it’s written and directed by Garry Russell, former Doctor Who producer for Big Finish (1998-2006) and much else besides (actor, writer, DWM editor…).

It’s…

Zaltys review

Main range release 223 is Zaltys, a good Fifth Doctor story from Matthew J Elliott. Released in March 2017, the TARDIS crew of Nyssa, Adric and Tegan find themselves badly in need of friends on the planet of the dead. The story marks the end of this the first main range trilogy with Adric, and it will…
