Altered Carbon – Original Netflix Series Soundtrack by Jeff Russo (CD soundtrack review).

The Netflix TV series ‘Altered Carbon’ is based on the novel by Richard K. Morgan. It’s described in the PR material I was sent as ‘…an intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future’. I’m not going to argue as I’ve yet to see it, although having […]

Doctor Who: The Churchill Years Volume 02 by Paul Morris, Iain McLaughlin, Alan Barnes, Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky (CD review).

Following the success of Volume 01 of Churchill’s memoirs, Big Finish cleverly followed up with Volume 02 which Ken Bentley directs the wide ranging and age-ranging tall tales. How singularly appropriate that Winston Churchill, a man known for his oratorical excellence should have his own audio range. His ability to rouse people and carry through […]

BBC hates sci-fi a little less, with Dangerous Visions.

Those who report back to us from the halls of the BBC usually describe an environment of high-brow condescension towards science fiction and fantasy. Many of the top brass actually hate SF with a passion, and would love to kill Doctor Who, for instance. They can’t because it’s a Moo-Moo-Money-Cow. But boy, do they ever […]

The Churchill Years: Volume 01 by Phil Mulryne, Alan Barnes, Justin Richards and Ken Bentley (CD fiction review).

When Winston Churchill made his appearance in ‘Victory Of The Daleks ‘in 2010 as an ally to the Doctor, nobody but Big Finish might have imagined him taking a starring role in his own adventures. Big Finish have done this before with the excellent ‘Jago And Litefoot’ stories and it pushes their creative output to […]
