Subscriber Short Trips 2011 reviewed

The 2011 Subscriber Short Trips are a varied set of interesting stories by a range of authors and readers. [Note – the stories were re-aligned to make sure each quarter had a specific story. They didn’t necessarily appear in this order at the time for the earlier years.] Let’s get on with the reviews!

Vienna Series 3 review on Cultbox

My review of the splendid Vienna Series 3 is now on CultBox. In a nutshell it’s great entertainment and I hope to hear more of Chase Masterson and Samantha Béart in the future. Well done Ian Potter, Guy Adams, Steve Lyons, Scott Handcock and Cavan Scott. The review is: Big Finish’s ‘Vienna’ audio box set review: Season…

Iris returns!

Masters of Earth reviewed

The November main range release for 2014 was Masters of Earth by Cavan Scott and Mark Wright. There are many features to pick out — this is the next in the Sixth Doctor  plus  older Peri trilogy, it’s got Daleks in it but not in the title and it’s also rather clever. It’s also one the writers…

Vienna series 2 and 3 announced

Tucked away (right at the top for several paragraphs) in the item on the 2012 celebration of the 15th anniversary of the Main Range is the news that Chase Masterson will be re-creating the impossibly glamorous assassin / bounty hunter Vienna Salvatori.
