Details on the 99 for 99 sale

So, the new sale is 99 titles for 99p (each) and download only. It might be a somewhat predictable mix (see 99 TITLES FOR 99P!), but there’s still a lot for many newer fans to digest, I have some thoughts as to what you might get…

UNIT Assembled review

I penned some thoughts on the highly enjoyable UNIT: Assembled over on CultBox. It’s a great set of stories by Matt Fitton and Guy Adams, and the best so far for Kate Stewart and Osgood. The review is: Big Finish UNIT Assembled review. Enjoy! +++ Message Ends +++

10 great non-Doctor Who releases in 2016

Apart from the large number of great Doctor Who titles released in 2016, Big Finish also released a lot of other fantastic audio adventures. Ian McArdell and I made a list, checked it twice and now it’s available for you to read over on CultBox: 10 of our favourite audio releases from Big Finish in 2016. :::…

The Legacy of UNIT

It’s June so it’s daily Doctor Who Legacy UNIT levels. We’ve had an updated client released (with its own bug causing some characters to duplicate) and this allows us to get daily updates with special levels aka the UNIT Daily Missions. So far the first of these has been a renamed Chapter 1 level, The Snowmen: Backstreets…

The legacy of Susan Foreman

The latest newsletter from Tiny Rebel Games is packed full of Doctor Who Legacy goodness. Most pleasing is the news of Susan Foreman coming soon (see artwork), and also news of Grace Holloway and Gwen Cooper! No word on exactly when, colours or powers.

CultBox review of UNIT-Extinction

Here’s my CultBox review of UNIT-Extinction. As I said earlier today, this is very, very good. Do let me know your thoughts. (– Message Ends –)

UNIT-Extinction reviewed

So, here it is, the first post-2005 release for Big Finish in the modern world of Doctor Who. Written by Matt Fitton and Andrew Smith, UNIT-Extinction brings Kate Stewart and Petronella Osgood face to face with the Autons. This time there’s no Doctor to save the day, but don’t worry, UNIT has some resources of its own….

Zygon Invasion reviewed

Zygon Invasion gave us Zygons a-plenty, rock&roll Doctor, evil Clara, foreign settings and much mystery under London. Lots to reflect on, lots of elements I quite liked, some I didn’t. Not a great episode for me overall, but I much preferred it to Peter Harness’s previous story Kill the Moon: let’s pick over the pieces…

Thoughts ahead of the Zygon Invasion

Tomorrow’s Doctor Who gives the return of Osgood and The Zygon Invasion. Peter Harness wrote this (and also co-wrote next week’s Zygon Inversion) and also wrote last season’s Kill the Moon. I didn’t like Kill the Moon but am more than happy to treat Zygon Invasion on its merits. After all we get plenty to chew over…

Notes from Big Finish Day 7 aka #bfd7

These are the notes I took during the Big Finish Panel at Big Finish Day 7 in Slough. They may well contain mistakes or omissions, so do feel free to let me know any corrections! The panel consisted (as usual) of Jason Haigh-Ellery, David Richardson and Nick Briggs (as per the picture)

Full UNIT Extinction details from Big Finish

Following the early news release from the Radio Times (Osgood comes to Big Finish UNIT Extinction), Big Finish has announced full details of the main cast for the new boxset. Not only is Ingrid Oliver (picture, sans glasses, from the Big Finish FaceBook feed) back as Osgood, but other characters have been announced.

Osgood comes to Big Finish UNIT Extinction

As we might have guessed (but didn’t), Ingrid Oliver will be playing Osgood in the Big Finish UNIT Extinction boxset, available in November 2015, alongside Jemma Redgrave as Kate Stewart. The details were published first by the Radio Times: Doctor Who stars Jemma Redgrave and Ingrid Oliver get their own spin-off adventure. <:> Message Ends <:>
