Daemos Rising by David J. Howe (book review).

In the world of ‘Doctor Who’, the story of ‘The Daemons’ in the 1970s must have ticked every box for anti-filth campaigner Mary Whitehouse on what to not show children. It’s almost on par with ‘The Wicker Man’ and shown on a Saturday tea time. ‘Daemos Rising’ is a sequel to the story which was […]

Doctor Who: The Target Storybook (book review).

Just the thing, another book to remind us we have no ‘Doctor Who’ on our screens. It’s bleak out there and with the new Doctor barely established, it feels like a massive misstep to leave it so long. After all, fans have other options. But, hey, a book that covers all thirteen incarnations plus the […]

Time And The Doctor: an article of temporal delicacy, by GF Willmetts.

There is always something odd about the travels of the Gallifreyan called the Doctor. Although in the early days, the TARDIS travelled apparently randomly in time and space and even appeared in different time periods of the Daleks own history and seemingly annihilating them completely repeatedly amongst other things. We were after all following the […]

Doctor Who: Revelation Of The Daleks by Eric Saward (DVD TV series review).

Typical of an Eric Saward script, there are several cross-connecting plot strands. It’s better to split them up rather than trying to intertwine them. Oddly, the Doctor (actor Colin Baker) and Peri (Nicola Bryant) practically become a minor strand in their own story. They arrive on the wintery planet Necros where politicians and the wealthy […]

Doctor Who: Timelash by Glen McCoy (DVD TV series review).

The TARDIS detects and is drawn into a time corridor/vortex/whatever. The Doctor (actor Colin Baker) detects its destination on Earth and with a bit of effort travels up it to where it came from, the planet Karfel. He explains to Peri (actress Nicola Bryant) that he had been here in an earlier regeneration, later revealed […]

Doctor Who: Attack Of The Cybermen by Paula Moore (DVD TV series review).

I often wondered when ‘Doctor Who’ was turned into 2 * 45 minute episodes that producer John Nathan-Turner was trying to stay a step or two ahead of inquisitive fans by doing something unexpected. The biggest step was giving more storytime per episode because there were fewer recaps which confirms my suspicions in the first […]

Doctor Who: The Twin Dilemma by Anthony Steven (DVD review).

There are two plot threads to follow in the sixth regeneration of the Doctor (now actor Colin Baker) as he has become rather unstable with panic attacks and nearly strangling Peri Brown (actress Nicola Bryant). He does find a new set of tasteless contrasting coloured clothes along the way. This time, unlike his previous regenerations […]

Doctor Who: The Caves Of Androzani Special Edition (DVD review).

When the Doctor (actor Peter Davison) and Peri (actress Nicola Bryant) arrive on Androzani Minor, they find themselves in the middle of a conflict created by the inhabitants of Androzani Major who are seeking spectrox, an elixir of youth except in concentrated raw form is also toxic. Unwittingly, they are both poisoned, although they don’t […]
