The second story in the second set of the Fourth Doctor Adventures volume 8 is Fever Island by Jonathan Barnes. As is often the way it serves as an interlude amongst the other stories and provides a break from the Syndicate’s activities. It is nonetheless rather splendid!
I had a listen to the Jonathan Barnes Short Trip story Falling and reviewed it for Cultbox: Big Finish Doctor Who audio story reviews May 2017. It’s a nice story for Mrs Polly Jackson read by Anneke Wills, with some really nice moments. +++ Message Ends +++
Lumme! It’s forty years since Henry Gordon Jago and Professor George Litefoot first came to our notice in Talons of Weng-Chiang and here they are in their thirteen Big Finish boxset!

To make this event something special, producer Ian Atkins has broken the mould of the Short Trips range with not both Trevor Baxter…
Massive news about the Short Trips range today. Not only do we get the first ever two-part story, but it’s also narrated by two voices. If that seems only passingly interesting, the two voices are those of Jago & Litefoot! Did I mention the story has the Tenth Doctor in it?
I penned some thoughts on the great Jonathan Barnes Short Trips tale The World Beyond the Trees. It’s an Eighth Doctor story read by Nicola Walker with a gentle connection to the BBC Audio Drama winner by John Dorney.
