Planet of the Drashigs review

Phil Pulryne takes the writer’s chair for the second story in the new Fourth Doctor Syndicate Master Plan season with new companion Ann Kelso. The title Planet of the Drashigs gives away some of the story: it’s a surprise return for a monster encountered by the Third Doctor in the 1973 story Carnival of Monsters. Following the events of The Sinestran…

Fourth Doctor Adventures Series 7 Volume 1 review

The Fourth Doctor Adventures has a new packaging: four stories released as one set, rather than a monthly range. Whatever the commercial reasons, the quality of stories is undiminished and it means a huge treat for Tom Baker fans, followed by a desperate wait for the next set. This series gives us the return of Louise…

Happy 40th birthday, K9!

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…

Fourth Doctor: The Eternal Battle review

I reviewed the Fourth Doctor Adventure: The Eternal Battle for Cultbox. It’s a great Fourth Doctor / Leela / K9 story with Sontarans and writers Cavan Scott and Mark Wright have delivered an excellent hours entertainment. The review is part of the monthly round-up I produce with Ian McArdell: Big Finish’s latest ‘Doctor Who’ audio stories reviewed: February 2017…

Beast of Kravenos review on Cultbox

I shared some thoughts on the Justin Richards Fourth Doctor story The Beast of Kravenos over on Cultbox. It stars Tom Baker as the Doctor, Lalla Ward as Romana II, John Leeson as K9 as well as Christopher Benjamin and Trevor Baxter as Messrs Jago and Litefoot! Conrad Asquith sneaks in as Inspector Quick. With a full…

Pursuit of History review on Cultbox

I reviewed the Fourth Doctor story Pursuit of History for Cultbox as part of the July roundup with Ian McArdell. David Warner, Toby Hadoke and David Troughton, not to mention Tom Baker and Lalla Ward with John Leeson as K9. What’s not to like in Nick Briggs’s first part of the season close for the current Fourth Doctor Adventures?…

Wave of Destruction review on Cultbox

As the Fourth Doctor Adventures start their fifth season, enter Lalla Ward as Romana II! Justin Richards starts us off with Wave of Destruction, a tale of radio waves, alien invasion and pirate radio. All really well executed and reviewed over on CultBox as part of the monthly round-up I do with Ian McArdell: ‘Doctor Who’ audio play…

K9 v Omega in Timequake movie

Over on DoctorWhoTV is a remarkable (and not an April Fool) story: K9 TO BATTLE OMEGA IN MOVIE “TIMEQUAKE”. This is not a BBC production. Strange world! — Message Ends —

Fate of Krelos reviewed

At last we get a story that doesn’t revolve around the Doctor saving the world / galaxy / universe / reality of space and time. In this Fourth Doctor tale, The Fate of Krelos, Nick Briggs creates a strong character study with several strong hints as to what is coming next (as if we didn’t know from…

Lego Doctor Who details

Lego has accidentally (amazing how prone Doctor Who is to accidental release of advertising) revealed details of the Doctor Who Lego Dimensions set. From the cover of set #71204 we can see the Capaldi Twelfth Doctor, the TARDIS and K9.

Death Match reviewed

Death Match, by Matt Fitton, is the latest Fourth Doctor Adventure and is the sequel to John Dorney’s Requiem for the Rocketmen (John script edited this, return the favour as Matt edited his story!). It continues with Leela having left the TARDIS then almost at once taken prisoner by the Master. The Doctor and K9 find themselves on…
