Counter Measures: The Hollow King review

So, the Counter Measures range may be coming to an end but with Ian Potter’s The Hollow King it certainly isn’t bowing out with a whimper. Where the previous boxset was (at times) a strange mix of stories, this single disc release is a one rich tale of pagan rites, UFOs, new age gurus and more ideas than…

Doctor Who An Ideal World review on Cultbox

My review of the October 2018 Early Adventures story An Ideal World by Ian Potter is now online, thanks to CultBox: Doctor Who: Ideal World review. It’s a First Doctor with Vicki and Steven story, well performed but not (for me) as strong as last month’s Dalek Invasion of Winter. ooo Message Ends ooo

The British Invasion review

In the August 2017 Short Trips, Wendy Padbury reprises the role of Zoe in the Ian Potter Second Doctor story The British Invasion. Directed by Lisa Bowerman, this story is set in post-war Britain, and starts off as a simple tale, then becomes something much more.

Vortex Ice / Cortex Fire review on Cultbox

I penned some thoughts on the May main range release Vortex Ice / Cortex Fire over on Cultbox. It’s part of a roundup produced with Ian McArdell. This particular pair of stories has the Sixth Doctor and Flip in some really interesting situations in two stories by Jonathan Morris and Ian Potter. The review is: Big Finish Doctor…

New Counter Measures Series 1 review on CultBox

I’ve taken a listen to New Counter Measures Series 1 and penned some thoughts over on CultBox. Basically a great set of stories by Guy Adams, Ian Potter, Chris Hatherhall and John Dorney. My review is: ‘Doctor Who’ spin-off review: ‘The New Counter-Measures’ Season 1 box set. === Message Ends ===

The Memory Bank announced

A May Bank Holiday news piece gives details of the October release in the Big Finish Doctor Who main range. Full information on the Big Finish website: DOCTOR WHO: THE MEMORY BANK AND OTHER STORIES. This means we’ve had five Peter Davison Fifth Doctor boxsets in 2016, and we get a somewhat overdue set of stories for the Doctor and Turlough.

Vienna Series 3 review on Cultbox

My review of the splendid Vienna Series 3 is now on CultBox. In a nutshell it’s great entertainment and I hope to hear more of Chase Masterson and Samantha Béart in the future. Well done Ian Potter, Guy Adams, Steve Lyons, Scott Handcock and Cavan Scott. The review is: Big Finish’s ‘Vienna’ audio box set review: Season…

Bounty of Ceres reviewed

Ian Potter wrote the third of the first series of The Early Adventures, a tale for the First Doctor, Steven and Vicki entitled Bounty of Ceres. This is set on a large asteroid and is one of those stories that grew on me as I listened to it. I previously reviewed it for Starburst, but this post is aimed at…

Bounty of Ceres review on Starburst

A plug for my review of the rather excellent Bounty of Ceres by Ian Potter over on Starburst. And yes, I know I’m behind with local reviews! -=- Message Ends -=-

The Sleeping City reviewed

The February 2014 release in the Companion Chronicles range was a First Doctor story entitled The Sleeping City. Written by Ian Potter it was performed by William Russell and John Banks. Set after Ian and Barbara have returned to Earth will we find that the greatest threat is to be faced after leaving the TARDIS?
