Year of the Drex Olympics review on CultBox

It’s got a tongue-in-cheek title and the April 2019 Doctor Who Short Trips release, The Year of the Drex Olympics is definitely one of the more amusing releases in this range. A Second Doctor story, read by Frazer Hines, and featuring Jamie and Victoria, it’s worth a listen and I put some thoughts together for…

The Night Witches review

I reviewed the great historical Early Adventures: The Night Witches for Cultbox: The Night Witches (Doctor Who audio) review. It’s a cracking story, and everyone is at the top of their game. It’s the first of a bunch of stories by Roland Moore, and on the strength of this we are in for a treat. +++ Message…

Way of the Empty Hand reviewed on CultBox

I reviewed the wonderful Julian Richards Short Trip, The Way of the Empty Hand on CultBox. This is a witty Second Doctor story read by Frazer Hines. The review is part of the October round-up I produced with Ian McArdell: ‘Doctor Who’ audio play reviews round-up: Out in October 2015 from Big Finish. ### Message Ends ###

The Forsaken reviewed on CultBox

I reviewed the Early Adventure: The Forsaken as part of the CultBox monthly Doctor Who round-up with Ian McArdell. A great Justin Richards Second Doctor story, this has Frazer Hines (Jamie), Anneke Wills (Polly) and Elliot Chapman (Ban Jackson). The review is: ‘Doctor Who’ audio play reviews round-up: Out in October 2015 from Big Finish. (** Message Ends **)

Little Doctors Reviewed

The February 2015 Short Trips release was Little Doctors  by Philip Lawrence, with Frazer Hines taking care of all the vocals and Lisa Bowerman directing. I’ve already reviewed this on CultBox so I may skip some details here. This is a Second Doctor story, and as you should expect features Jamie and Zoe. I enjoyed January’s Flywheel Revolution – how…

Prison in Space or Carry on in the TARDIS reviewed

The second set of Lost Stories leads off with the Dick Sharples story Prison in Space. Dick Sharples wrote many other things (Adam Adamant, The Saint, Doctor Finlay and even The Bill) but this is the only piece he ever wrote for Doctor Who. It is a Second Doctor story with Jamie and Zoe performed by Frazer Hines and Wendy…

Vienna Series 1 boxset reviewed

February 2014 got off to a quick start with the release of the first series of stories for Chase Masterson’s Vienna Salvatori. Including amongst its cast Frazer Hines and consisting of three stories by different writers would this be a welcome back for the galaxy’s most glamorous assassin or would it be Goodnight Vienna? My…

The Glorious Revolution reviewed

August 2009 brought us The Glorious Revolution a Second Doctor Companion Chronicle written by Jonathan Morris. Directed by Nigel Fairs this is a Jamie led story performed by Frazer Hines with Andrew Fettes who at the time of writing has been in a dozen Big Finish releases from several ranges. Frazer performs some of my favourite Second Doctor stories such…

House of Cards reviewed

February 2013’s Companion Chronicle was House of Cards by Steve Lyons, a Second Doctor tale featuring Polly (played by Anneke Wills) with Frazer Hines playing Jamie as a secondary character. How will it stand out in a busy month that also gives us Frazer Hines in the latest Destiny of the Doctor title Shadow of Death? Will there…
