Dalek Invasion Earth Boxed Set by Terrance Dicks and Malcolm Hulke (CD review).

This ‘Dalek Invasion Earth Boxed Set’ covers three different invasions of Earth with two different Doctors. It seems a shame nobody invaded while the Second Doctor was in charge but it looks like this was a scoop up of stories for a boxed set which doesn’t exactly show a great deal of thought. However, it’s […]

Ghost Story (The Dresden Files book 13) by Jim Butcher (book review).

There is no way around this so if haven’t read the previous book to this, ‘Changes’, look away now. ‘Ghost Story’ is about our loveable wizard Harry Dresden and he is, as Dickens might definitely paraphrase, definitely dead as a door nail. But wait; although his demise is definite his story is not yet over. […]

Doctor Who: Horror Of Fang Rock (4th Doctor TV Soundtrack) by Terrance Dicks (CD review).

The ultimate haunted house story, ‘Horror Of Fang Rock’ sees the Fourth Doctor return to Earth. He arrives on the south coast of England (we didn’t do international in 1977). Fang Rock Lighthouse in the early 1900s has three lighthouse keepers but it’s still a lonely life and they might be prone to strange imaginings. […]

Doctor Who: The Wheel Of Ice by Stephen Baxter	 (CD review).

A return to epic adventure, ‘Wheel Of Ice, is written by stalwart of SF, Stephen Baxter. Here we have a story specially written to include the Doctor but which tries to take the long view of the universe in much the same way that Baxter seeks out epic themes in his other works. When the […]

Torchwood: Exodus Code by John Barrowman and Carol E. Barrowman (CD review).

If you are missing Captain Jack and Gwen Cooper, then you might get a satisfactory fix from this audio book. ‘Exodus Code’ follows on from the momentous events of ‘Miracle Day’ and, once again, we are flung into world-changing events. On an Earth that seems to have moved far away from that of ‘Doctor Who’, […]

Doctor Who: Lost Stories: Powerplay by Gary Hopkins 	(CD review).

The Sixth Doctor undertakes a little bit of anti-nuclear protesting in the new Lost Story, ‘Powerplay’. This would have been very topical in the 1980s when it was lost to the vagaries of the attitude towards ‘Doctor Who’. It is also momentous for another reason, for this is the first time we have the return […]

Doctor Who: The Nu-Humans (11th Doctor Original) by Cavan Scott (CD review).

Just another day with the Ponds in the TARDIS. The Doctor has landed them on the planet Hope Eternal. It’s like Earth but super-sized. But they don’t get much time to admire the amazing view before their eyes are drawn to the belching volcanoes. So it’s beautiful but potentially dangerous. This planet has been colonised […]
