Dalek Audio Annual review

If you get the chance, you could do worse than give the two-disc Dalek Audio Annual a listen. Read by Nick Briggs, Louise Jameson and Matthew Waterhouse it’s a collection of stories and piece from the 1970s series of Terry Nation’s Dalek Annuals. It’s a bit dated in places but still a decent piece of entertainment in its…

Second Doctor Who Audio Annual review

Like the first Doctor Who Audio Annual, this is a two-disc set of six stories, on for each of the first six Doctors, each read by an actor who played a companion (or the Master). The stories are from original 1960s-80s Doctor Who Annuals, and are well read and produced. The cast of readers is again Peter Purves,…

Doctor Who Audio Annual review

Congratulations to all those involved for creating the Doctor Who Audio Annual, released December 2017. Short review: if you like the Big Finish Short Trips range, this is an easy purchase. It’s currently £11.49 on Amazon UK, which for six stories over two discs compares well pricewise. The six stories (from Doctor Who Annuals mid-1960s- mid-1980s) are read by five…

The Ingenious Gentleman Adric of Alzarius review

November 2018 brought yet another splendid Short Trips in the form of Julian Richards’s The Ingenious Gentleman Adric of Alzarius. It’s putatively a Fifth Doctor story, but there’s a bit more to it as Adric (read with skill by Matthew Waterhouse) explores a mythic landscape in the company of Sir Keyooht in his quest for giants to slay. It’s…

It was recorded by Ladbroke Audio, and features the vocal talents of Peter Purves, Anneke Wills, Geoffrey Beevers, Matthew Waterhouse and Nicola Bryant. Stories cover (as you might have guessed) the first six…

The Star Men reviewed

Andrew Smith kicked off 2017’s main range with The Star Men. It’s a Fifth Doctor story with companions Adric, Nyssa and Tegan — yes, Matthew Waterhouse hits the main range after many years of waiting. How was it? Full of vivid imagination and some great moments for Adric. You want more? Read on…

Short Trips A Full Life review on Cultbox

I reviewed the very, very good Joe Lidster Short Trips: A Full Life on CultBox. It’s an Adric, Fourth Doctor and Romana story and Matthew Waterhouse is outstanding in it. A must listen, the review is part of my joint September reviews with Ian McArdell: Big Finish’s ‘Doctor Who’ audio stories: September 2016 reviews round-up. +++ Message Ends…
