Sixth Doctor and Peri volume one review

My CultBox review for The Sixth Doctor and Peri volume one is now up: The Sixth Doctor and Peri volume one audio drama review. Bottom line: good but not great and an inauspicious start to the Sixth Doctor‘s run with older Peri. *** Message Ends ***

Doctor Who: Eden by Annihilation free book

The Divergent Wordsmiths has released what I believe to be their first full length fan novel. It’s a Sixth Doctor, Peri and Frobisher story Eden by Annihilation. Alan Camlann wrote it and well done all – there’s a big difference between a short story and a full novel in terms of commitment. It’s free and…

Blood on Santa’s Claw review

I wasn’t too enthused by the 2019 Sixth Doctor and Peri trilogy; this Christmas collection, Blood on Santa’s Claw and Other Stories I found rather good. Sixie, Peri plus boyfriend, new writers and Nev Fountain. It’s a treat from first to last. Four stories with a Christmas connection – let’s dive in!

Harry Houdini’s War review

The 2019 Sixth Doctor and Peri trilogy ended with Harry Houdini’s War and for me it was a mixed bag. John Schwab shone as Houdini (and will no doubt return) but I found the story as a whole a little incoherent. Part of this is I was reminded of writer Steve Lyons’s classic Colditz and…

Emissary of the Daleks review

August 2019 brought Emissary of the Daleks to the main range. Andrew Smith wrote this Sixth Doctor and Peri tale, and as the title makes clear there are Daleks. A tiny part of me wondered why it wasn’t called Representative of the Daleks to fit with the ‘R’ them for Dalek stories. Most of me…

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…

A Peri Christmas romance?

Many years ago, Nicola Bryant appeared on Top of The Pops standing next to Gary Davies: here. Now that event has been turned into Doctor Who as Peri meets someone special when she visits a TV programme! Joe Carnaby, a pop star from the 1980s (played by Luke Allen-Gale) meets Peri when his synth band, Arcadia…

Heroes – my story for the unofficial 1987 Dr Who Annual

I wrote the story Heroes for the Unofficial 1987 Dr Who Annual – do let me know what you think of it. I seem to be back at one-word titles! It’s a Sixth Doctor and Peri story and the third such I’ve had published (including the Big Finish story Rulebook and the charity story Flowers…
