Subscriber Short Trips 2010 reviewed

My wander back through the Big Finish Subscriber Short Trips hits 2010 and four more great Doctor Who stories to enjoy. Four authors, three readers, four Doctors and six companions (and some UNIT pseudo-companions) — you spoil us! Excitement aside, are these worth a listen? Short answer, yes; long answer…

Isos Network reviewed on Cultbox

I reviewed the Nick Briggs Second Doctor story The Isos Network  as part of the monthly round-up I produce with Ian McArdell. I had some reservations about the prose style, but that aside this is a great story and both Jamie and Zoe are spot-on. The review is here: ‘Doctor Who’ audio play reviews round-up: Out in January…

Last of the Cybermen reviewed

I had a lot to say about this story over on Kasterborous, but as promised here are some more thoughts on the middle episode of the locum doctors trilogy. Alan Barnes took on the challenge of placing the Sixth Doctor into a Second Doctor Cybermen tale, re-uniting him with Jamie and Zoe. They met before in the Legend of the Cybermen trilogy, though circumstances…

Little Doctors Reviewed

The February 2015 Short Trips release was Little Doctors  by Philip Lawrence, with Frazer Hines taking care of all the vocals and Lisa Bowerman directing. I’ve already reviewed this on CultBox so I may skip some details here. This is a Second Doctor story, and as you should expect features Jamie and Zoe. I enjoyed January’s Flywheel Revolution – how…

Second Chances – Starburst review

A mention of my Starburst review of the final Companion Chronicles – John Dorney’s Second Chances. It’s farewell in the company of Zoe as her trilogy of tales gets wrapped up. The review is: Audio Review: SECOND CHANCES – THE COMPANION CHRONICLES (DOCTOR WHO). Usual rules – if you want to leave a comment please do. ……

Prison in Space or Carry on in the TARDIS reviewed

The second set of Lost Stories leads off with the Dick Sharples story Prison in Space. Dick Sharples wrote many other things (Adam Adamant, The Saint, Doctor Finlay and even The Bill) but this is the only piece he ever wrote for Doctor Who. It is a Second Doctor story with Jamie and Zoe performed by Frazer Hines and Wendy…
