Black Thursday / Power Game review on CultBox

February 2019 continued the trio of stories with the Fifth Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Kamelion. It’s a pair of contrasting tales: Black Thursday / Power Game by Jamie Anderson and Eddie Robson, and jolly fine they are too! You want more?! Check out my review on CultBox: Doctor Who: Black Thursday/Power Game review. <+> Message…

Kamelion comes to Big Finish

The Fifth Doctor‘s shape-shifting android is coming to Big Finish, voiced by Jon Culshaw. Kamelion will appear alongside Tegan and Turlough (somewhat overdue) in three main stories starting January 2019. Details: KAMELION RETURNS TO DOCTOR WHO, it’s also a return for Cavan Scott who wrote January’s Devil in the Mist. There’s a double-two-parter by Jamie Anderson and Eddie Robson,…

River vs The Master(s)

In the latest DWM (and confirmed on the Big Finish site) we learn all about the fifth River Song boxset. No, River isn’t meeting more incarnations of the Doctor, instead it’s four stories and four incarnations of… The Master! And that’s only half the story: the Master will be played by Geoffrey Beevers, Derek Jacobi, Michelle Gomez…

Fifth Doctor sale recommendation

This week (13-19 April, 2018) there’s special offers on several Fifth Doctor titles from Big Finish. Full details are: FIFTH DOCTOR SPECIAL OFFERS. There’s a lot of good titles, and the news piece is pushing Iterations of I from the Fifth Doctor Boxset. I rather like Paul Magr’s Lady of Mercia and Eddie Robson’s Fanfare for the Common Men. There are other titles…

Short Trips: The Turn of the Screw review

The March 2018 Big Finish Doctor Who: Short Trips was The Turn of the Screw by Eddie Robson. It’s read by Yee Jee Tso, reprising UNIT office Charlie Sato. This story brings Charlie into contact with the Eighth Doctor, a nice touch given Yee Jee Tso\s part in Doctor Who: the Movie. Is this story any good? Let’s find out…

All Hands on Deck review

No sooner have we had one great Short Trips set in the Time War era (A Heart on Both Sides), than we get another. This month we have had the delights of All Hands on Deck, an  Eddie Robson story directed by Lisa Bowerman and narrated by Carole Ann Ford, and all under the auspices of script…

Time in Office review

I enjoyed the Eddie Robson set of Doctor Who stories collected as Time in Office and put together some thoughts for CultBox: Time in Office (Doctor Who Audio) review. It’s a good mix of President Fifth Doctor, Leela, Tegan and some good stories. Much recommended! +++ Message Ends +++

The Blood Furnace reviewed

The August 2017 main range release The Blood Furnace sees the Seventh Doctor, Ace and Mel take on a strange corporation in Eddie Robson’s story set in the 1990s. It’s a slightly odd story but scratch the surface and you see how well constructed it is, even though (perhaps) it is a little frustrating. I’ll explain…

Time in Office – details announced

The Big Finish main range release number 230 will be Time in Office, a Fifth Doctor story by Eddie Robson. Out in September it is interesting on many levels, including the companions – Tegan and Leela! Not only do we have an unusual  pairing in Tegan and Leela (who also meets the War Doctor this year!) but an…
