Coming this May, 2020 Third DoctorAdventures Volume 6. The cover gives away a lot but we now have even more details – the Brigadier is confirmed (hinted strongly on the page) as well as Sgt Benton. It’s the 1970s all over again!

Big Finish War Doctor and Ninth Doctor offers

The Big Finish celebration of series 11 of Doctor Who continues with offers including both the War Doctor and the Ninth Doctor.

Churchill Years Volume 2 review

I enjoyed the second (and overdue?) set of Churchill stories from Big Finish, and wrote a review for CultBox: Doctor Who: The Churchill Years Volume 2 review.
