Torchwood – Aliens Among Us: part 2 by Christopher Cooper, Mac Rogers, Janine H Jones and Tim Foley   (CD story review)

Who doesn’t love a serial? The essence of this new ‘Torchwood’ is to provide us with a regular dose of adventures with underlying continuing themes and a sufficient quantity of cliff-hanging moments. There are four one hour episodes in this series with the promise of the final four shortly. These are standalone episodes but follow […]

Thunderbirds Are Go Volume 2 by Ben Foster & Nick Foster (CD soundtrack review).

The second volume of the modern CGI ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’ contains the music from the last 13 episodes from season one. A year later than already mentioned previously but it is now out there and you get a better price if you buy directly from Silva Screen Records than from the long river site. The […]

Dominic Frontiere (1931-2017)  :  a brief remembrance by: GF Willmetts.

It was brought to my attention today that composer Dominic Frontiere died shortly before Christmas at the age of 86. Wikipedia notes 19 TV series themes and 19 films although IMdB notes many more. It is with his TV series that he should be remembered most for specific SF shows. ‘The Outer Limits’ (1963), ‘The […]

The Prisoner Volume 2 by Nicholas Biggs (CD story review).

Much like the Prisoner, I live in a world where everything is uncertain and despite thinking I had written this review, it turned out to be a fantasy. The basis of the world of ‘The Prisoner’ is not being able to trust your eyes, ears and senses so an audio version is the ideal medium […]

The Music Of ITC (CD review).

‘The Music Of ITC’ has original recordings of the music from 16 ITC TV series from the 1960s-1970s. 18 actually if you recognise there was a different theme music for the hour long ‘Danger Man’ and the colour version of ‘The Saint’ series.

Justice League: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Danny Elfman  (soundtrack review)

This is the ‘Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’ for the ‘Justice League’ film. The majority of the tracks are composed and performed by Danny Elfman. After doing a bit of research, I noted that Mr. Elfman has quite a few soundtrack credits to his name. I stopped counting after 20 but it’s fair to say he […]

The Champions Original Soundtrack by Robert Farnon, Edwin Astley, Albert Elms and Tony Hatch (TV series soundtrack CD review).

I’ve known about Network’s TV series CD collections for some years. They were also limited editions and expensive, double what I paid last month. Even so, when I saw ‘The Champions Original Soundtrack’ had dropped in price, it was too good an opportunity to miss. I should point out that not all the others in […]

Revolt (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) by Bear McCreary.

‘Revolt (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)’ by none other than Bear McCreary. This is the chap who impressed me with his work for the ‘Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D’ soundtrack and the rather darker ‘10 Cloverfield Lane’ soundtrack. For ‘Revolt’, we have 14 tracks providing 52 minutes of musical entertainment and only on download. Track 1 is […]
