Wicked Sisters sale!

To mark the release of Wicked Sisters, Big Finish has a great sale on everything Graceless. It’s one of the stronger ideas Big Finish ever came up with and spun out of the Key2Time main range trilogy many years ago (ten!) I can recommend all of the titles, and they’ve been covered here extensively. +++…

Abby and Zara – what happened next…

So, you’re the Tracer twins, Abby and Zara, created by the Grace to locate the segments of the Key to Time, long since stripped of your powers and now called Amy and Joy. What happens next? Simon Guerrier answers this question in Graceless 4. The details are still emerging, but the cunning twist is time passes…

Graceless III reviewed

I finally caught up with Graceless just in time for Graceless IV to be announced (just before I listened to III). I also had the benefit of listening to the extras at the end of Worlds of Big Finish. Graceless III is now two years old, so I shall allow myself a level of spoilers but not enough to ruin the…

Graceless II reviewed

I really enjoyed Graceless I and am pleased at the news there will be a Graceless IV.  Meanwhile I am listening to the earlier series (and enjoyed their opener for Worlds of Big Finish), so how did I find 2011’s December release of Graceless II? Did it hit the same levels as the high standard reached in the first…

Graceless IV announced

On a Bank Holiday Monday, Big Finish has slipped out the news of a further series of Graceless! I’m almost sure it’s because I started catching up with this excellent Simon Guerrier series (see my review of Series I) but I suppose it might also be recent sales figures and the Worlds of Big Finish release as…

Graceless series I reviewed

I have finally listened to 2010’s release of Simon Guerrier’s Graceless and was rather impressed with it (and annoyed I hadn’t grabbed a copy earlier). They may not be real people, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t care what happens to them. Given these are not new I may be more generous with the spoilers. Following on…

Another Graceless sale

As part of the build up to this month’s Worlds of Big Finish, is a surprise 48-hour offer on both Graceless and the Key2Time trilogy. Again (as happened a year or so ago during a Graceless sale), the trilogy is just coming to the end of  run on BBC Radio 4 Extra, but that might not be enough reason to turn…

The Prisoner’s Dilemma reviewed

The Key2Time trilogy was introduced with a Companion Chronicle (much as was Jago & Litefoot) in this case the Simon Guerrier story The Prisoner’s Dilemma. This therefore needs to be considered as both a stand-alone story and in terms of how it connects to the Key2Time trilogy. Spoilers follow…

The Key2Time trilogy

2009 began with the Key2Time trilogy (instead of Key to Time which had been done or Key 2 Time which is just plain silly). This Fifth Doctor trilogy consists of The Judgement of Isskar (Simon Guerrier), The Destroyer of Delights (Jonathan Clements) and The Chaos Pool (Peter Anghelides). There is also a Seventh Doctor / Ace Companion Chronicle that fits into this called The…
