Third Doctor, Churchill and Daleks coming in May!

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!

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.

Picture of Lily completes Churchill casting

After a week of cast reveals and excitement building, Big Finish topped off the hype for The Churchill Years with a surprise.

The setting seems to include World War II; I hope we get some young Churchill in this as well….
