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. Even before we knew if it was any good there was the […]

Doctor Who: The Ruby’s Curse (A River Song/Melody Malone Mystery) by Alex Kingston (book review).

River Song is bigger than life and that’s just her hair. She cannot be confined and travels the universe or maybe the multiverse, righting wrongs, going on a date night, visiting the aged parents and occasionally taking a break in prison. She’s a multi-media event and this novel opens another avenue. ‘The Ruby’s Curse’ by […]

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’. Most of the story is recognisable but it is more comprehensive tale perhaps due to time and budget. Yorkshire in the 17th century is still a time of superstition and magic. The country is […]

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor And River Song by James Goss, Lizzie Hopley and Jonathan Morris (CD review).

The delightful pair return to get to know each other better in the three adventures in this box set known simply as ‘The Tenth Doctor And River Song’. For a start, she should definitely be the first person mentioned but maybe it scans better. Expiry Date by James Goss ‘Excuse me. I received your note. […]

Doctor Who: Ghost Light by Marc Platt (DVD review).

With only three stories to go in the McCoy era, I suppose it was inevitable that we would finally have a ghost story of sorts with ‘Doctor Who’ and another personal hate for Ace, as she doesn’t like ghosts or ghosthouses. The TARDIS deposits the Doctor (actor Sylvester McCoy) and Ace (actress Sophie Aldred) in […]

Doctor Who: Battlefield by Ben Aaronovitch (DVD review).

There are several threads at the beginning of ‘Battlefield’ before they start getting tangled and minor details need to be skipped. The TARDIS is receiving a single to go to Earth although the Doctor (actor Sylvester McCoy) and Ace (actress Sophie Aldred) don’t know why although they materialize 4 miles from Lake Vortigern where a […]

Doctor Who: The Greatest Show In The Galaxy by Stephen Wyatt  (DVD review)

I have to confess I was confused by ‘The Greatest Show In The Galaxy’ when I saw it back in 1988. I’m still not sure watching it now. The Doctor (actor Sylvester McCoy) and Ace (actress Sophie Aldred) get an invite advert-bot appearing in the TARDIS to see the Psychic Circus on the planet Segonax. […]
