The Trouble With Peace (The Age Of Madness Trilogy book 2) by Joe Abercrombie (book review).

‘The Trouble With Peace’ could have been that I haven’t read the first book in this series. This works as a standalone but will make you curious to follow the series, so maybe don’t read on if you haven’t read volume 1, ‘A Little Hatred’. It all ended happily ever after. Don’t be ridiculous. Peace […]

Doctor Who: The Ravagers Boxset by Nicholas Briggs (CD review).

The return of the Ninth Doctor as played by Christopher Eccleston was hotly anticipated. It’s a big responsibility, the series that reintroduced ‘Doctor Who’ in 2005, followed by the immediate announcement that the lead had departed after just one series shocked the fans.

Doctor Who: The Witchfinders by Joy Wilkinson (book review).

In another of the novelised version of a TV episode Joy Wilkinson writes her own novelisation of her story ‘The Witchfinders’.
