Russell T Davies talks to Frank Skinner

A good spot from CultBox is a radio interview between Russell T Davies and Frank Skinner as part of the promotion for James Goss’s Doctor Who poetry book. They cover some details, and give a link to the interview itself: Doctor Who: Russell T Davies on the re-writing of the Time War. === Message Ends ===

Torchwood: Aliens Among Us 1 review

So, we now have the first set of Torchwood stories set in what would have been (so we are informed) the fifth series of the TV show. Heavily informed by Children of Earth and ignoring (so far, and I hope permanently) Miracle Day, this is a Phoenix like rebirth in the city of Cardiff and more than just a set…

The Missy Chronicles are coming!

Available on Amazon for pre-order, you can get The Missy Chronicles, released February 2018. All we know is it will be 224 pages, and authors include Cavan Scott, Jaq Rayner, James Goss, Paul Magrs, Richard Dinnick and Peter Anghelides. The picture left isn’t the cover, just a mock-up I did using a picture I found here: TARDIS…

Torchwood: The Office of Never Was review

Once again, James Goss demonstrates his mastery of the dramatic in this latest Torchwood release, The Office of Never Was. Gareth David-Lloyd stars as the much-missed Ianto Jones in this hour-long story set in a deserted office block. It starts spooky, and ends by explaining just how Ianto manages the ethical dilemmas working with Torchwood throws up. It’s…

How to Win Planets and Influence People review

Sometimes you have to take your hat off to other writers. In this month’s Short Trips: How to Win Planets and Influence People, James Goss has written a humorous, entertaining Fourth Doctor story for Rufus Hound to read as the Meddling Monk. It’s a great piece, and credit to producer Ian Atkins and director Lisa Bowerman.

The Lives of Captain Jack review

In The Lives of Captain Jack, we get to see glimpses of what Jack Harkness did after he first died (and even before) and before he joined Torchwood. In this boxset, we have four stories by two great, and very different writers, Guy Adams and James Goss. In four adventures they take us across a small…

Now We Are 600

The Ninth Doctor Chronicles

As part of its continued foray into the new-Who license territory, Big Finish has released The Ninth Doctor Chronicles. It comprises four stories, with Nick Briggs narrating and voicing the Ninth Doctor in the absence of Christopher Eccleston, and also with Rose (and no Billie Piper). In style it’s like the Companion Chronicles mixed with the Short Trips…

Torchwood: Corpse Day review

Well, James Goss has been at it again with another fantastic, if dark [even by Torchwood standards] story in Corpse Day. Notable anyhow for being the first return for Burn Gorman as Dr Owen Harper, with Tom Price also appearing as PC Andy Davidson. It’s got a big cast, a powerful story and packs a real punch…

More Benny Unbound!

Following the tremendous pleasure that was The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield Volume 03: The Unbound Universe, Big Finish has announced the return of Lisa Bowerman, David Warner’s Unbound Doctor in The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield Volume 04: The Ruler of the Universe. This time Mark Gatiss takes on the role of the Master, and there’s no sign of…

The Silent Scream review on Cultbox

I reviewed the James Goss Fourth Doctor Adventure: Silent Scream on CultBox as part of the monthly round-up I do with Ian McArdell. It’s a wonderful story for the Fourth Doctor, Romana and K9 set in Hollywood. It’s also a chance to hear Pamela Salem in a role outside of Counter Measures. The review is part of: Big Finish’s latest…
