Tron Uprising by Joseph Trapanese (soundtrack review)

Cartoons have come a long way since I was a lad.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (soundtrack review).

When reviewing any piece of work, I do my best to take it in isolation and not let related materials influence my judgement. I’m afraid with ‘The Hobbit’ soundtrack, that’s just not possible so expect lots of references to ‘The Lord Of The Rings’ to follow. I’m sure I don’t need to go into the […]

Dark Shadows: The Last Stop by David Llewellyn	(CD review).

‘Dark Shadows: The Last Stop’ ticks all the boxes for a good old spooky story which is part of the tradition of the ‘Dark Shadows’ audio books. They have been getting better and better and this one, by David Llewellyn, is a great two-hander with Jerry Lacy reprising his TV role as private investigator Tony […]

Sleepers In The Dust by Darren Jones (CD review).

For a change, here’s a story that fits into an hour and is full of problems and pain without a simple ending. ‘Sleepers In The Dust’ is an Eleventh Doctor story that feels so much better than most of the series this year. The travellers arrive on Nardurniss, but this dead world is full of […]
