Obverse Books has announced the Black Archive release of Sound of Drums / Last of the Time Lords. Writer James Mortimer takes a deep look at this pair of episodes in the 38th (!) release in the range.
Martha Jones comes to Big Finish!
Here’s something to get excited about – Freema Agyeman has recorded a Big Finish story! Yes, Martha Jones comes to Big Finish! It’s not a David Tennant Tenth Doctor boxset (yet!) but it is a Torchwood story. Freema is alongside Eve Myles in the Tim Foley tale Torchwood: Dissected due in February 2020! Full news…
The Tenth Doctor Chronicles review
There’s a glaring problem with The Tenth Doctor Chronicles, one that’s being ignore by Big Finish. If you’ve taken the hours out of your life necessary to listen to all four stories, you’ve probably spotted it already. I hope so. If you haven’t done either then it falls to me to break the news. Big Finish…
Complete History volume 55 reviewed
The Doctor Who: The Complete History series kicked off with volume 55. While I think the whole series is an expensive indulgence, I suspect a lot of people might buy the first few releases.

Sting of the Zygons reviewed
In what will be the first of a few book reviews I’ve had a look at the re-issue of Sting of the Zygons by Stephen Cole. The review is on the StarBurst Magazine website Book Review: DOCTOR WHO – STING OF THE ZYGONS. I only gave it 6/10 – why not have a read and let me know…
The Mystery of the Haunted Cottage by Derek Landy reviewed
October 23rd, one month to go and like clockwork up pop (on the kindle) the Derek Landy Puffin story The Mystery of the Haunted Cottage. As the picture (from the Derek Landy blog) shows this is a Tenth Doctor and Martha story. Familiar as the author of the Skulduggery Pleasant books I wondered how this would pan out with the…
