Bernice Summerfield Buried Memories review

First an apology. Big Finish released Doctor Who: The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield Volume 05: Buried Memories back in September 2019. For no particular reason this collection became trapped in the black hole containing my Big Finish backlog (I have some sale items dating back many years!) Now I’ve listened this has become one…

Infinifest May 30 2020

If you can get to London at the end of May, you might want to go along to Infinifest. It’s a one day convention at the Genesis Cinema with guests, films, TV and much socialising. It’s run by Infinity Magazine. There are several reasons for Doctor Who fans to be interested.

Jago & Litefoot Series 13 review

Lumme! It’s forty years since Henry Gordon Jago and Professor George Litefoot first came to our notice in Talons of Weng-Chiang and here they are in their thirteen Big Finish boxset!

What’s not to like in Nick Briggs’s first part of the season close for the current Fourth Doctor Adventures?…

Benny Unbound

Another Big Finish announcement (first revealed in DWM) is the next Bernice Summerfield boxset will be The Unbound Universe. A surprise to me in that it uses the unbound David Warner and the unbound Mark Gatiss (aka Sam Kisgart) Master. I thought, from comments I’d heard at a Big Finish Day, that the Unbound stories weren’t likely…

War Doctor Volume 2: Infernal Devices review

Hot on the heels of The War Doctor Volume 1: Only the Monstrous comes The War Doctor Volume 2: Infernal Devices. If the first volume was Nick Briggs re-capturing some flavours of Dalek Empire from the point of view of a set of intriguing characters, this volume is a study in themes, almost an audio essay, by John…
