Doctor Who: The Lone Centurion: Volume 2: Camelot by Tim Foley, Kate Thorman andAlfie Shaw  *CD review)

Rory Pond (Arthur Darvill) returns in ‘Camelot’ and almost succeeds in making us forget ‘Monty Python And The Holy Grail’. Almost. ‘The Lone Centurion’ has a long wait ahead and rather than sit in the cave for 2000 years, he opts to get a bit of experience in the world. This is the alternate timeline […]

Doctor Who: Charlotte Pollard – The Further Adventures: The Mummy Speaks by Alan Barnes, Lisa McMullin, Eddie Robson and Nicholas Briggs (CD review).

We return to Charlotte Pollard’s early adventures with the Eighth Doctor. Its twenty years since ‘Storm Warning’ launched this dynamic duo and it feels like five minutes ago. Those early adventures still stand up to listening and these new ones have deliberately drawn on those to bring us right back up close to the pair. […]

Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor Adventures: Old Friends by David K Barnes and Roy Gill (CD review).

This new series of three adventures consist of a standalone followed by two linked episodes. Christopher Eccleston returns and slots back in to the role of the Ninth Doctor with consummate ease. There is something so optimistic about his voice that I can believe everything he says. Maybe he should move into advertising. Fond Farewells […]

Doctor Who: The Fifth Doctor Adventures Forty. Volume 1 by Matt Fitton and Sarah Grochala (CD review).

Hard to believe but ‘Doctor Who: The Fifth Doctor Adventures Forty: Volume 1’ has been brought out to celebrate that it’s 40 years since the Fifth Doctor made his debut in the TV Series. Way to feel old thank you very much. A fresh-faced boy then, Peter Davison proved to be a marked contrast to […]

Dark Season by Russell T Davies (audio review).

This is the audio book of the TV series, ‘Dark Season’ by Russell T Davies, which was originally broadcast in 1991 on the BBC. An extraordinarily prescient drama, ‘Dark Season’ featured a young then a complete unknown Kate Winslet and Jacqueline Pearce, already on our screens as the scary Servalan from ‘Blake’s Seven’. Marcie is […]

That version perfectly encapsulated the joys and problems and many excitements that Christmas offers. It’s been constantly adapted for radio over the years and was produced in London as a stage play […]
