Time in Office review

I enjoyed the Eddie Robson set of Doctor Who stories collected as Time in Office and put together some thoughts for CultBox: Time in Office (Doctor Who Audio) review. It’s a good mix of President Fifth Doctor, Leela, Tegan and some good stories. Much recommended! +++ Message Ends +++

Zaltys review

Main range release 223 is Zaltys, a good Fifth Doctor story from Matthew J Elliott. Released in March 2017, the TARDIS crew of Nyssa, Adric and Tegan find themselves badly in need of friends on the planet of the dead. The story marks the end of this the first main range trilogy with Adric, and it will…

The Contingency Club reviewed

Sometimes you get to the end of a story and think so what? Sometimes you don’t know what you think, not why you think it. In the case of Phil Mulryne’s Fifth Doctor main range story The Contingency Club there are no such problems. It’s a charming, well-told story with much to recommend.

The Star Men reviewed

Andrew Smith kicked off 2017’s main range with The Star Men. It’s a Fifth Doctor story with companions Adric, Nyssa and Tegan — yes, Matthew Waterhouse hits the main range after many years of waiting. How was it? Full of vivid imagination and some great moments for Adric. You want more? Read on…

Adric in the main range and other news

Big Finish has announced Matthew Waterhouse has reprised Adric for the main range, with Andrew Smith writing the first story, The Star Men, coming January 2017. Not only do we have details of a whole Fifth Doctor trilogy in: DOCTOR WHO: ADRIC ARRIVES IN THE MAIN RANGE!, but the pages for the next Sixth Doctor and Constance trilogy are also updated.

The Peterloo Massacre reviewed

Once in a while, Big Finish releases something potent, something absorbing and something attracting the label of future classic. The current Fifth Doctor trilogy has been good (Waters of Amsterdam and Aquitaine), but The Peterloo Massacre by Paul Magrs is magnificent. It’s a pure historical and gives clear roles for both Nyssa and Tegan, and tells…

Kinda reviewed

Thanks to the Horror Channel I am slowly catching up with 1980s Doctor Who. For many reasons I missed a lot of the Davison and early Colin Baker years, finally I get to sit down and consider them for what they are. Christopher Bailey’s Kinda is the first of a trilogy that will include Snakedance and the Lost Story Children…

Subscriber Short Trips 2011 reviewed

The 2011 Subscriber Short Trips are a varied set of interesting stories by a range of authors and readers. [Note – the stories were re-aligned to make sure each quarter had a specific story. They didn’t necessarily appear in this order at the time for the earlier years.] Let’s get on with the reviews!

Waters of Amsterdam reviewed

The main range continues the trend of offering new entry points with the thoroughly enjoyable Jonathan Morris story Waters of Amsterdam. Set early in Tegan’s second tenure in the TARDIS, we get a chance to learn more of what Tegan did in her time away, why Rembrandt is drawing spaceships and just what the mythical water…

Short Trips King of the Dead reviewed

May 2015 brought us the Monthly Short Trips story King of the Dead. Narrated by Sarah Sutton, this half hour piece is the first release to have been written by Producers’ Assistant Ian Atkins. It is a Fifth Doctor story with Nyssa and Tegan as companions. So far these short tales have been interesting and worth the small…
