Doctor Who Stranded 1.2 Wild Animals

Doctor Who Stranded takes the Eighth Doctor, Liv and Helen from where they left off in Lost Property and reinforces the message — this is not a standard bang crash, in-out adventure. This is real life and it can be a bit mundane. John Dorney takes over writing for Wild Animals. It’s another day near…

Doctor Who: Time War 3 review

The Eighth Doctor continues to skirt the edges of the Time War in Doctor Who: Time War 3 and it’s no easy task. The latest instalment brings four more stories from Matt Fitton, Lisa McMullin, Roland Moore and John Dorney. We’ve Daleks, Time Lord trickery and, as the cover reveals, the Valeyard! It’s a mix…

The Robots is coming

With too little fanfare for my tastes, Big Finish has announced a new spin-off: The Robots with Nicola Walker as Liv Chenka. It’s Doctor free (as far as I can tell) and will be released from December 2019 as twelve stories over four three-disc sets, released every six months. This means it will run until…

Read my review here: Missy…

The Perfect Prisoners Part Two review

Following the events of The Perfect Prisoners Part One, the Fourth Doctor is not happy, not happy at all. Someone is killing off the Syndicate and he’s realised just who that someone is. In The Perfect Prisoners Part Two the truth will finally be uncovered, and we may not like what we find. Huge spoilers…

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…

Ravenous 2 review

The latest set of stories in the Eighth Doctor Ravenous range takes the Doctor, Liv Chenka and Helen Sinclair to yet stranger places than before in a mix of tales I mostly liked but I have some reservations with Ravenous 2 as a set. Let me explain…
