The Skin of the Sleek review

As the latest run of Fourth Doctor Adventures comes towards its conclusion, Marc Platt brings us part one of the finale in the form of Skin of the Sleek. It gives us a strange new world, and an academy friend of Romana’s — Sartia (Joannah Tincey) and the sleeks, the giant eels of the title. It’s a…

Dethras reviewed

Adrian Poynton‘s Big Finish debut is the April 2017 Fourth Doctor Adventures: Dethras. On the strength of the first listen I hope this isn’t the only time we hear his work. It’s innovative, fun and is enhanced by some wonderful performances, including a classic John Banks character. You want more? Here goes…

Doctor Who Experience

Doctor Who Experience – March 2017

So, I topped off my visit to Cardiff (after seeing Ianto’s Shrine) with a visit to the Doctor Who Experience. It would have been rude not to! Why now when it’s been open so many years? Well the weather was nice, I fancied a break and it’s meant to be closing soon! Was it worth it?…

Baker and Ward (news)

in amongst all the excitement of the anniversary here’s a news item that I overlooked – apologies. Big Finish have announced that Tom Baker will once again join forces with Lalla Ward and John Leeson in a series of releases starting in 2015.

Babblesphere reviewed

The April Destiny of the Doctor story Babblesphere saw Lalla Ward reprise the role of Romana in a Jonathan Morris Fourth Doctor story that also featured Roger Parrott as Aurelius. So far the Destiny of the Doctor series been a success in my view, particularly given the price to download the whole series of 11 stories (Get…
