Dark Shadows: The Visual Companion (book review).

A book for the coffee table and for ‘Dark Shadows: The Visual Companion’ you might want to make sure it has sturdy legs as this is a hefty brick of a book. Presumably, the size of the book is in direct inverse proportion to the impact the film had at the box office and popular […]

Dark Shadows: The Last Stop by David Llewellyn	(CD review).

‘Dark Shadows: The Last Stop’ ticks all the boxes for a good old spooky story which is part of the tradition of the ‘Dark Shadows’ audio books. They have been getting better and better and this one, by David Llewellyn, is a great two-hander with Jerry Lacy reprising his TV role as private investigator Tony […]

Behind The Sofa: Celebrity Memories Of Doctor Who edited by Steve Berry (book review).

‘Behind The Sofa’ is a collection of celebrity memories of ‘Doctor Who’ from the last 49 years. Memory being a funny thing, who’s to know whether these are accurate, but 100% of the royalties are being paid to Alzheimer’s Research UK so please buy if you can. There are a variety of stories from the […]

Sleepers In The Dust by Darren Jones (CD review).

For a change, here’s a story that fits into an hour and is full of problems and pain without a simple ending. ‘Sleepers In The Dust’ is an Eleventh Doctor story that feels so much better than most of the series this year. The travellers arrive on Nardurniss, but this dead world is full of […]

Doctor Who: The Burning Prince by John Dorney (CD review).

With a suitably intriguing title, ‘The Burning Prince’ is the latest audio adventure for a solo travelling Fifth Doctor written by John Dorney, so expect extreme trickiness. It’s an odd experience to hear him alone as the Doctor always seems to be tripping over his many companions. His recent audios have been successful precisely because […]

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. […]
