Doctor Who: Missy: Series One by Roy Gill, John Dorney, Nev Fountain and Jonathan Morris (CD review).

Missy as played by Michelle Gomez refuses to be contained as a mere guest artiste in the slightly well-known series called ‘Doctor Who’. She is ready to branch out.

Doctor Who: Stranded: Volume 1 by Matt Fitton, John Dorney, Lisa McMullin and David K Barnes (CD/download review).

‘Stranded’ couldn’t be more lockdown if it tried. Released in June 2020, just as the general public of the UK was coming out its enforced isolation and trying out its rather shaky wings it is curiously apposite for our times. Anyone who was feeling trapped and could only access travel virtually might feel a great […]

Doctor Who: Fourth Doctor Adventures: The Crooked Man by John Dorney (CD review).

As a bit of a change for Leela (Louis Jameson) and the Doctor (Tom Baker), they are trying once again to have a holiday but the out-of-season cold and unwelcoming seaside resort has little to recommend it. So, unsurprisingly, they end up on the trail of ‘The Crooked Man’. This is the third adventure of […]

The Avengers The Lost Episodes adapted by John Dorney (CD review).

Ah! ‘The Avengers: The Lost Episodes’. It’s a bit of a conundrum knowing what to say about these new audio adventures. These four episodes in the boxed set or download actually come from the original ‘Avengers’ series 1, which has regrettably been lost to time. That sounds oh so familiar, doesn’t it? There are at […]

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’. […]
