The Day She Saved the Doctor

To mark International Women’s Day in March 2018, we have Doctor Who: The Day She Saved the Doctor Four Stories from the TARDIS. Four female authors (see later), four female companions (Sarah-Jane, Rose, Clara and Bill) and available as an audio-book (reader unknown) or book.

Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 2 review

So, Billie Piper joins the ranks of Big Finish talent and reprises the part of Rose in three adventures with Tenth Doctor, David Tennant. Three stories, three writers and three sets of monsters. What’s not to like? Let’s chat about The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 2…

More Doctor Who Mr Men mash-ups!

Thanks to the Radio Times for details of the next wave of Mr Men meets Doctor Who. I’ve resisted getting these (so far!) but they do look great! Details here: The Ninth Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack face the Autons in one of four new Doctor Who-Mr Men mash-up books. ++> Message Ends <++

The return of Rose!

In site-breaking news yesterday at 17:15, (or just before), Big Finish announced the hardly-leaked news many fans couldn’t believe even as it happened: Billie Piper in studio with David Tennant for The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volumes 2. We were teased mercilessly by John Dorney and David Richardson and as excitement came to the boil we got the…

The Ninth Doctor Chronicles

As part of its continued foray into the new-Who license territory, Big Finish has released The Ninth Doctor Chronicles. It comprises four stories, with Nick Briggs narrating and voicing the Ninth Doctor in the absence of Christopher Eccleston, and also with Rose (and no Billie Piper). In style it’s like the Companion Chronicles mixed with the Short Trips…

The Doctor Who Companion launches

March 26, 2016 saw the launch of a new blog – The Doctor Who Companion. If you want the full experience there’s the inevitable FaceBook page, and a twitter feed. There’s plenty of material to get stuck into already. Why not pop over and let me know what you think?

Ten years of Captain Jack

It’s ten years since Captain Jack Harkness first appeared in The Empty Child with the Ninth Doctor and Rose. Lots of people marking this yesterday (May 21st) and for me, this Metro piece is as good as many of them: Captain Jack joined Doctor Who 10 years ago – John Barrowman’s best bits. Enjoy! <|> Message Ends <|>

Now Who is 10 – Happy Birthday, Rose

Here we are, March 26, 2015 and the regenerated Doctor Who is ten years old today. How did that happen? My own relationship with the show had floundered and this was a road to Damascus revelation (see About Me). I’ve only briefly reviewed Rose as part of the whole Ninth Doctor run, and one day might remedy that. This…
