Gallifrey: Time War 3 review on CultBox
Away from the TV but still Gallifrey (if only the title) I enjoyed Gallifrey: Time War 3 from Big Finish. I found some faults, but in the end it’s a good set. My review is: Gallifrey: Time War 3 audio review. +++ Message Ends +++
Doctor Who: The Quest of the Engineer review
The 2020 batch of Fourth Doctor Adventures comes to a close with Andrew Smith’s Quest of the Engineer. Andrew gets to write for Adric who he first introduced to us in the 1980 story Full Circle. Once more, by the magic of Big Finish, the Fourth Doctor, Romana, K9 and Adric are lost in e-Space,…
Doctor Who The Planet of Witches review
February 2020 follows on from the previous month’s Purgatory 12 and Chase the Night with another pair of stories, first of which is The Planet of Witches. Writer Alan Barnes puts the Fourth Doctor, Romana, Adric and K9 through their paces in a tale of magic and mayhem.
Doctor Who: Chase the Night review
Jonathon Morris’s Chase The Night was released with Purgatory 12, and in some ways follows the same pattern: with exotic world-building and substantial peril but for this release, the focus (if there is one) is Romana. Beyond looking for deep insights (the plague of being a reviewer) Chase The Night is another strong release in…
Doctor Who: Purgatory 12 review
The 2020 Fourth Doctor Adventures expand the period when the Doctor, Romana, K9 and Adric were trapped in e-Space. January gave us two stories each taking two discs – very much the form of four classic TV episodes. First of these is a strong Marc Platt tale – Purgatory 12.
The Fourth Doctor goes back to e-Space!
Big Finish has today released the first of two four-disc sets for the Fourth Doctor taking him back to e-Space! That means Romana, K9 and Adric. They’ve also released some details about February’s stories, and of course Adric must surely mean Andrew Smith?!
The DWC looks at the Fourth Doctor’s Romana years
The Doctor Who Companion has raced on with its season reviews and time for me to take a quick peek at the last big Fourth Doctor era. It’s seasons 16 – 18: the Romana years!
Legacy of Time: Collision Course review
So, Legacy of Time, the 6-disc story celebration of 20 years of Doctor Who at Big Finish reaches its final act. Guy Adams (who also wrote The Sacrifice of Jo Grant) is back to close off this many-Doctor story with Collision Course. I assume you’ve heard the first five stories, so there will be some…

Sainsbury’s will launch Doctor Who: Wave of Destruction starring Tom Baker, Lalla Ward and John Leeson on Friday 19th July 2019. It will be released as a Limited Edition run…
Shada (BluRay 2017) Review
I’ve talked about Shada before, mostly around the Big Finish / BBC Eighth Doctor version; now it’s time to consider the 2017 part-animated version (as discussed on BBC Cambridgeshire: Doctor Who: Tom Baker finishes abandoned 1979 Shada serial).
