Robots Volume One review on CultBox

I think Robots Volume One is one of the Big Finish releases of the year, and said as much in my CultBox review: The Robots Volume One audio drama review. Many years ago when Liv Chenka first came to out ears with the Seventh Doctor I felt she’d make a great companion; with Robots Nicola…

Memories of a Tyrant review

July 2019 brought the Sixth Doctor and Peri back to the main range with Memories of a Tyrant. It’s been a while since Nicola graced the monthly releases but time has not diminished her ability to bring Peri back on audio. Roland Moore’s story takes the listener in one direction then switches tack. Let’s chat…

More Robots news from Big Finish

When I first heard about the Robots boxsets I have to say I was thrilled.

What we also learned is a new Short Trips has been brought forward. Read by India Fisher, this is an Ian Atkins story The Man Who Wasn’t There and will be released…

Liv Chenka

First appearing in the July 2011 Big Finish release Doctor Who Adventure 149 – Robophobia, Liv Chenka is a med-tech serving aboard the robot transport ship Lorelei. Here amidst what appears to be a revolt by some of the many, many 1000s of robots on-board   intent on murder and destruction, Liv has to come to terms with…
