Wicked Sisters sale!

To mark the release of Wicked Sisters, Big Finish has a great sale on everything Graceless. It’s one of the stronger ideas Big Finish ever came up with and spun out of the Key2Time main range trilogy many years ago (ten!) I can recommend all of the titles, and they’ve been covered here extensively. +++…

What did the Fourth Doctor do for the show?

There’s a quick guide to the Fourth Doctor on the generally excellent BBC America website: ‘Doctor Who’: A Companion To The Fourth Doctor. It makes a few good points, but I’ve been thinking structurally. I’ll give a thumbnail view of the previous incarnations then hone in on the contribution of the Fourth Doctor. I’m ignoring…

I talk Longleat on the Doctor Who Companion

Over on The Doctor Who Companion is my first post! It’s an extended version of the I went to Longleat in 1983 article I wrote here (Longleat remembered). The piece is: MY FIRST DOCTOR WHO CONVENTION: LONGLEAT 1983. If nothing else it has some Key To Time trivia! Let me know what you think! +++ Message Ends +++

Graceless series I reviewed

I have finally listened to 2010’s release of Simon Guerrier’s Graceless and was rather impressed with it (and annoyed I hadn’t grabbed a copy earlier). They may not be real people, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t care what happens to them. Given these are not new I may be more generous with the spoilers. Following on…

Another Graceless sale

As part of the build up to this month’s Worlds of Big Finish, is a surprise 48-hour offer on both Graceless and the Key2Time trilogy. Again (as happened a year or so ago during a Graceless sale), the trilogy is just coming to the end of  run on BBC Radio 4 Extra, but that might not be enough reason to turn…

Big Finish 15 – 2009

As I guessed yesterday (Big Finish 15 – 2008) gives us the Key2Time trilogy and a chance to get Simon Guerrier’s Graceless. All of these feature the Tracer Twins and the main range trilogy also has the Fifth Doctor.

The Prisoner’s Dilemma reviewed

The Key2Time trilogy was introduced with a Companion Chronicle (much as was Jago & Litefoot) in this case the Simon Guerrier story The Prisoner’s Dilemma. This therefore needs to be considered as both a stand-alone story and in terms of how it connects to the Key2Time trilogy. Spoilers follow…

The Key2Time trilogy

2009 began with the Key2Time trilogy (instead of Key to Time which had been done or Key 2 Time which is just plain silly). This Fifth Doctor trilogy consists of The Judgement of Isskar (Simon Guerrier), The Destroyer of Delights (Jonathan Clements) and The Chaos Pool (Peter Anghelides). There is also a Seventh Doctor / Ace Companion Chronicle that fits into this called The…
