Ravencry: The Raven’s Mark book 2 by Ed McDonald   (book review)

‘Ravencry’ is the sequel to ‘Blackwing’ and therefore Part 2 of the trilogy ‘The Raven’s Mark’. ‘Blackwing’ was and is a stunning and highly readable. It sucks you right into the adventure. ‘Ravencry’ follows on from ‘Blackwing’, so don’t read this is you haven’t read it. Why haven’t you read it? Ed McDonald has a […]

The World Of Sherlock Holmes: The Facts And Figures Behind The World’s Greatest Detective by Martin Fido (book review).

‘The World Of Sherlock Holmes’, a production from the Sherlock Holmes Museum is written by Martin Fido and was first issued in 2015.

Doctor Who: The Churchill Years Volume 02 by Paul Morris, Iain McLaughlin, Alan Barnes, Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky (CD review).

Following the success of Volume 01 of Churchill’s memoirs, Big Finish cleverly followed up with Volume 02 which Ken Bentley directs the wide ranging and age-ranging tall tales. How singularly appropriate that Winston Churchill, a man known for his oratorical excellence should have his own audio range. His ability to rouse people and carry through […]

Doctor Who: Rose by Russell T Davies (book review).

It might never have happened. ‘Doctor Who’ might have been fondly remembered and discussed at conventions. ‘Rose’, the first story of the relaunched series, changed all that. Now we have people arguing the toss on Twitter and complaining about women taking over. They seem to have missed the point. ‘Rose’ reminds us of where it […]

Stranger Fillings by The Muffin Brothers (book review).

I hope you appreciate the effort your reviewer has gone to by watching two seasons of ‘Stranger Things’ simply to understand the recipes made available in this book. I can tell you do.
