Short Trips: Flight Into Hull! review

Jackie Tyler is back! Following the events of the brilliant Doctor Who Short Trips: The Siege of Big Ben, we have the equally brilliant Flight Into Hull!

Siege of Big Ben review

I reviewed Joe Lidster’s rather excellent Doctor Who, Short Trips: The Siege of Big Ben for Starburst. The story’s brilliant, a meta-crisis Doctor story told by Jackie Tyler as narrated by Camille Coduri. The review is: DOCTOR WHO SHORT TRIPS: THE SIEGE OF BIG BEN. +++ Message Ends +++

Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 2 review

So, Billie Piper joins the ranks of Big Finish talent and reprises the part of Rose in three adventures with Tenth Doctor, David Tennant. Three stories, three writers and three sets of monsters. What’s not to like? Let’s chat about The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 2…

MetaCrisis Short Trips

More Short Trips innovation led by producer Ian Atkins, this time in a pair of stories read by Camille Coduri as Jackie Tyler and set in the parallel world of the Meta-Crisis Tenth Doctor. So, modern Doctor Who on the range (again — you have heard the Jago & Litefoot stories, haven’t you?!). The stories are out in March and…

The Lives of Captain Jack review

In The Lives of Captain Jack, we get to see glimpses of what Jack Harkness did after he first died (and even before) and before he joined Torchwood. In this boxset, we have four stories by two great, and very different writers, Guy Adams and James Goss. In four adventures they take us across a small…

The return of Rose!

In site-breaking news yesterday at 17:15, (or just before), Big Finish announced the hardly-leaked news many fans couldn’t believe even as it happened: Billie Piper in studio with David Tennant for The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volumes 2. We were teased mercilessly by John Dorney and David Richardson and as excitement came to the boil we got the…

The Ninth Doctor Chronicles

As part of its continued foray into the new-Who license territory, Big Finish has released The Ninth Doctor Chronicles. It comprises four stories, with Nick Briggs narrating and voicing the Ninth Doctor in the absence of Christopher Eccleston, and also with Rose (and no Billie Piper). In style it’s like the Companion Chronicles mixed with the Short Trips…

The coming of the Doctor Chronicles

An intriguing new-Who announcement from Big Finish this week with The Doctor Chronicles. It’s a lot like the Companion Chronicles for the ninth – eleventh Doctors, with Nick Briggs voicing the Doctors. First up is a Ninth Doctor boxset for Jackie Tyler (Camille Coduri, pictured) and Adam Mitchell (Bruno Langley). The news item is: DOCTOR WHO – THE DOCTOR CHRONICLES! The set…

Torchtastic news!

So, now we now: Jackie Tyler is appearing in a Torchwood title alongside Captain Jack; yes it’s the secret behind the pictures of Camille Coduri and John Barrowman that were all over social media a while ago. It’s a special called The Lives of Captain Jack released in distant June 2017. Four stories set all across Jack’s life…

The Torchwood Archive announced

Big Finish has announced a massive project for the tenth anniversary of Torchwood, The Torchwood Archive. Details are in the news item (THE TORCHWOOD ARCHIVE), but all you need to know is it’s out in October, is two discs, James Goss wrote it, Scott Handcock directed it and almost everyone from the Torchwood range so far appears!
