Torchwood – Aliens Among Us Part 2 Box Set review

Continuing the new fifth series of Torchwood, as full-bloodied full cast audio drama, Captain Jack Harkness and his team are back on the mean streets of present day Cardiff. Following on the heels of Part 1, which introduced new characters and a tough alien-infused situation in the city they protect, this release contains episodes five...

Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor: The Time War Volume 1 boxset review

When Doctor Who returned to television, the “Time War” was a masterstroke; side-stepping years of continuity, it allowed new viewers to learn about the Doctor’s past alongside his die-hard fans. Through a drip feed of titbits, passing references and old enemies in subsequent years, this backstory built inexorably towards Gallifrey’s climatic return in time for...

Blake’s 7 Crossfire Part 1 review

Blake’s 7 are back on audio in the form of Vila, Avon, Cally, Tarrant, Zen, Orac and Dayna, with Yasmin Bannerman now cast in place of Josette Simon, who declined to return to the role. This boxset marks the start of a set under the banner of Crossfire, and does a good job of introducing...

It soon becomes a rather personal trip for Mel too, as...

Doctor Who: The Behemoth review

Marc Platt’s Doctor Who story The Behemoth, is the first in a set of three audio releases for Colin Baker’s sixth Doctor and his two Big Finish companions, Flip (Lisa Greenwood) and Constance Clark (Miranda Raison). For a change it’s a pure historical tale, set in 1756 Bath. The Doctor is setting tongues wagging, but...

Torchwood: The Lives Of Captain Jack boxset review

Jack Harkness, former Time Agent and friend of the Doctor has a rather complicated timeline; he has travelled with two different incarnations and also on his own, as well as having spent several lifetimes on Earth. This makes him ripe for further exploration and this box set explores some of the tantalising gaps in Jack’s...

Doctor Who Short Trips 8.10 review: All Hands On Deck

Hot on the heels of September’s release, All Hands On Deck is another tale set at the eve of the Time War, featuring the Eighth Doctor as he seeks to ensure one of his companion’s safety.
