Counter Measures: The Dalek Gambit review

With The Dalek Gambit, a direct sequel to The Movellan Manoeuvre, Big Finish (or so it seems) brings down the curtain on Counter Measures. And this time it’s final. Probably. It was fun, but was it any more. I’ll give my thoughts…

What do we know about Revolution of the Daleks?

While I let my review for The Timeless Children simmer, I’m turning my attention to the 2020 Christmas / New Year special Revolution of the Daleks. Brownie points for both a Dalek title beginning with R (there’s a list) and the possibility of evolution hidden inside (well we’ve just had an ascension!)

Emissary of the Daleks review

August 2019 brought Emissary of the Daleks to the main range. Andrew Smith wrote this Sixth Doctor and Peri tale, and as the title makes clear there are Daleks. A tiny part of me wondered why it wasn’t called Representative of the Daleks to fit with the ‘R’ them for Dalek stories. Most of me…

Early Adventure 6.2: Daughter of the Gods review on CultBox

I enjoyed the David K Barnes Early Adventures 6.2: Daughter of the Gods a lot. On paper a possibly mad multi-Doctor story with the First Doctor, Second Doctor, Steven, Jamie and Zoe. And Daleks. And Katarina! My review is on CultBox: Daughter of the Gods – Doctor Who Early Adventures 6.2 review. It’s very different…

Doctor Who: Time War 3 review

The Eighth Doctor continues to skirt the edges of the Time War in Doctor Who: Time War 3 and it’s no easy task. The latest instalment brings four more stories from Matt Fitton, Lisa McMullin, Roland Moore and John Dorney. We’ve Daleks, Time Lord trickery and, as the cover reveals, the Valeyard! It’s a mix…

The making of Mission to the Unknown

If you’ve now watched the remake of Mission to the Unknown on YouTube, you might also want to watch The Making of Mission to the Unknown. It’s also on YouTube and nice to see the BBC get behind this so well. ((( Message Ends )))

The DWC looks at the Fourth Doctor’s Sarah Jane Years

Tom Baker’s time as the Fourth Doctor is too much for mere mortals like me to take in all at once. Fortunately The Doctor Who Companion is slicing it into series, and I thought I’d track the Tom Baker years by chunk (ie Sarah Jane Smith / Leela / Romana(s) / The new gang [Nyssa…
