Doctor Who: Lost Stories: The Queen Of Time by Brian Hayles, adapted by Catherine Harvey (cd review).

One of the Lost Stories, ‘The Queen Of Time’ was to be a Second Doctor adventure with JaMie and Zoe accompanying him into this strange world. Far out might be a term applied to the ‘60s and this adventure certainly feels like someone might have been slightly tripping when they suggested it. I can see […]

Dark Shadows: Beyond The Grave by Aaron Lamont  (CD review).

If you have ever watched BBC classic ‘Ghostwatch’, you will enjoy a little taste of the thrill of live broadcasts when anything that can go wrong does. This is what you get for sending the team of a spook-hunting show to Collinsport, the most haunted town ever. It was forty years ago today… Recently found […]

Doctor Who: 1963: The Assassination Games by John Dorney (CD review).

It’s November 1963 and a familiar figure appears in the London underground and saves ‘Chunky’ Gilmore’s life. It’s the Umbrellas Man himself, the Seventh Doctor. The new Counter-Measures team and, that’s a loosely used word here, are attempting to get to the bottom of a curious assassination of a soon to be disgraced government minister. […]

The Outer Limits: Original Television Soundtrack by Dominic Frontiere (CD review).

The one series that I remember seeing some episodes of in my pre-teen years was that of ‘The Outer Limits’, so I was jumping for joy when I realised La-La-Land were releasing a soundtrack boxset. Actually, I should say, THE boxset as Dominic Frontiere didn’t contribute to season two. According to the booklet, he composed […]

Destiny Of The Doctor: The Time Machine by Matt Filton (CD review).

Ooh, Timey-wimey! I fell in love with ‘Destiny Of The Doctor: The Time Machine’ and it wrapped itself around me until I screamed. Never drive anywhere whooping at the CD player, it’s not good for your health. The Doctor, who is travelling alone this time, arrives at an Oxford lab to see just who has […]

Doctor Who: Death’s Deal (Destiny Of The Doctor 10) by Darren Jones (CD review).

It’s the turn of the Tenth Doctor to follow his destiny and down on the plant of Death’s Deal, all is not well. The Doctor and Donna receive a distress call from the surface but, when they arrive to help, they don’t get any from the visiting tourists. Apparently, these are old messages that circle […]

Good Ol’ Freda (film review) by Frank Ochieng.

Globally, it seems that the most ardent Beatles fans, females in particular, fancy themselves as the greatest of the Fab Four’s individual worshipers that ever worn out their ‘Rubber Soul’ or ‘Sgt. Pepper’s albums to death on their turntables. Sure, there are knowledgeable Beatles fans out there from yesterday and today that could probably tell […]

The Greatest Show In The Galaxy by Stephen Wyatt  (CD review).

‘The Greatest Show In The Galaxy’ is a good example of how the ‘Doctor Who’ stories can make excellent audio books. There is a lot going on in this outing for the Seventh Doctor and Ace, not least the scariest clowns ever. When the Doctor receives an advertising satellite directly in the TARDIS, he’s eager […]

The X-Files Volume Two music composed by Mark Snow (CD review).

For those who remembered my review of ‘The X-Files Volume One’ music and how much I thought it was long over-due and wondered if they did a second volume would contain certain episodes. Wonder no more, because here’s Volum Two. Reading the forty page booklet, the first episode here was ‘Eve’ which automatically raised a […]
