Tenth Doctor: One Mile Down review

The second release in The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 3, is One Mile Down by Jenny T Colgan. Unlike the previous episode, there’s no Sylvia or Wilf, but we do have Judoon. And fish people. And any moment now, disaster leading to…

Class Volume 1 review

August 2018 brought us a double hit of Class boxsets, launching the show for the audio world following its demise from BBC 3. Although recorded (the interviews make that clear) in an order other than the published, in this review I take a look at Class Volume 1. All three are well constructed, and follow the emerging…

The Day She Saved the Doctor (CD) – some notes

Not only did I have the chance to review the Puffin book The Day She Saved the Doctor, but I also had a copy of the 4xCD audio reading. Rather than a review, I just want to jot down some notes.

The Day She Saved The Doctor review

I enjoyed the all-female writer The Day She Saved The Doctor collection for several reasons. It was nice to have Sarah Jane Smith in Jaq Rayner’s story, and to hear new writers Susan Calman and Dorothy Koomson. My review is on Starburst: THE DAY SHE SAVED THE DOCTOR. *** Message Ends ***

The Day She Saved the Doctor

To mark International Women’s Day in March 2018, we have Doctor Who: The Day She Saved the Doctor Four Stories from the TARDIS. Four female authors (see later), four female companions (Sarah-Jane, Rose, Clara and Bill) and available as an audio-book (reader unknown) or book.

On Target with new Who novels

Penguin books is producing a new collection of Target Doctor Who books, focused on the new series. We may be some way from getting The Empty Child (see mock-up by Andrew-Mark Thompson (and his related post Revisiting the Eccleston Target Book Covers…) there’s plenty to look forward to. Details from the Penguin site suggest April 2018 release for five…

Torchwood One: Before the Fall review on Cultbox

I listened to the excellent Torchwood One: Before the Fall and put my thoughts together for Cultbox: ‘Torchwood One: Before the Fall’ review: We learn more about what makes Ianto tick.

Legends of River Song review on Starburst

I reviewed the book of short stories The Legends of River Song for Starburst. I’m a big fan of the short story format, and this set of five stories is one I would recommend. It fills out some details of River’s personality without making any dramatic decisions. All five stories have their strengths and the set works…

Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 1 full review

Following my initial review of new Doctor Who release The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 1 for CultBox, I’d like to give more detail as to why I think these three stories are so strong, why I believe they work and go deeper for the sheer joy of it! There will be some revealing details (aka spoilers)…

Gardens of the Dead reviewed on Cultbox

The 2016 Short Trips range kicked off with the Jenny T Colgan Fifth Doctor story Gardens of the Dead. This is a great Turlough story set very early in his time as part of the TARDIS crew, and Mark Strickson makes a great job of reading this. My thoughts are part of the monthly collection of Doctor Who reviews I…

Maisie Williams – now we know!

Thanks to the BBC themselves, and a small bit of detective work, we know a lot more about the Maisie Williams character than we did. If you want the details, read here about how BBC Books has given it all away with the synopsis for a book to be released in December called Legends of Ashildr, which…
