The Enchantress of Numbers review

The third tale in The Syndicate Masterplan Volume 1 takes the Fourth Doctor and new companion Ann Kelso to Victorian England for Ann’s first journey into history, though the story starts with the TARDIS already having been in London before it makes its way to Nottinghamshire and an encounter with The Enchantress of Numbers, Ada Lovelace (played by Finty Williams).…

Jago & Litefoot series 12 review

With this twelfth boxset Jago & Litefoot revisits some threads from its very inception and at certain points feels as though the series might be on the brink of drawing a line in the sand or even taking a break. Fortunately (and despite the lack of cliffhanger ending), we know there will be plenty more for Trevor…

Jago & Litefoot series 11 review

I’ve already discussed Jago & Litefoot Series 11 over on Starburst, now I’d like to go deeper into the stories.

Jago & Litefoot Series 10 reviewed

I’ve already reviewed Jago & Litefoot series 10 on Cultbox; this is a more extensive review that goes deeper into the stories and has a bit more in the way of spoilers. Series 9 gave our heroes a sea trip to remember and introduced the character of Dr Betterman (David Warner). What treats are in store…

Jago & Litefoot meet Jago & Litefoot

In a month packed with news (or so it seems) we now have details of Jago & Litefoot Series 10 – yes the tenth series for the infernal investigators. Corks! As promised in the Series 9 extras, David Warner will be joiner Messrs Baxter and Benjamin, but there’s more; much more. Back in Blighty means more…

Jago & Litefoot series 9 reviewed

I reviewed Jago & Litefoot series 9 for Kasterborous (see here) and thought I’d follow up with my more usual, in-depth take on the stories and the set as a whole. There are a couple of spoilers but I leave plenty of the plot unexplored, focussing on the greater narrative arc of the characters. This may…

Jago & Litefoot Series 8 reviewed

The previous series of Jago & Litefoot ended on a great cliff-hanger – the Scorchies had appeared and were keen to appear in Jago’s theatre, the New Regency (and why wouldn’t they be?!). How would events unfold? What else would befall our favourite Victorian adventurers? Only one way to find out!
