Counter Measures: Series 2 Box Set by Matt Fitton, James Goss, Mark Wright, Cavan Scott, John Dorney  (CD review).

There are four episodes in this new series of ‘Counter Measures’ and the worse thing is, that like many a box set, it’s all over far too soon. For those arriving in the 60s, in a slightly slow union jacked mini, this team were originally part of the Sylvester McCoy story ‘Remembrance Of The Daleks’. […]

Star Trek: Music From The Video Games by various artists (album review)

Despite the potential that obviously exists, one might argue there has never been a solid ‘Star Trek’ video game that had mass appeal. Sure ‘Star Trek: Online’ came close and ‘Borg’ is pretty decent but they’ve never been what they could be. Other entries have come across as insipid and, frankly, a bit of a […]

Defiance Television Series Original Soundtrack by Bear McCreary (album review)

Designed as a companion piece to the ‘Defiance’ video game soundtrack, Bear McCreary has obviously steered clear of repetition and looked to make something different for the show soundtrack about humans embracing a brave new frontier. For the ‘Defiance’ TV series score, McCreary has attempted to create a sound that mixes Earth and Votan tastes. […]

After Earth Original Soundtrack by James Newton Howard (album review)

‘After Earth’ was one of those films that seemed to get lost in the summer mix. I’m sure it was successful in its own right and I always enjoy Will Smith and his son, Jaden, is being groomed as a star of the future. However nothing about a father/son relationship dodging alien creatures on an […]

Dark Shadows: The Phantom Bride by Mark Thomas Passmore (CD review).

Tony Peterson( Jerry Lacy) is so happy he’s taking his beautiful bride Cassandra (Lara Parker) on an Atlantic cruise to celebrate their honeymoon. Never have a couple been so much in love.

Doctor Who: The Rescue by Ian Marter (CD review).

Maureen O’Brien, who played the companion Vicki, reads the 1987 novelisation by Ian Marter of ‘The Rescue’ originally written by David Whitaker for the TV. This is mainly memorable for the introduction of Vicki as a replacement for Susan. In changing times, it’s always reassuring to see a familiar face before we have to get […]
