Torchwood 19 – The Death Of Captain Jack review

After a six month break, which saw the launch of the Torchwood: Aliens Among Us series, a new run of monthly Torchwood releases from Big Finish began with the return of an old adversary.

The Omega Factor series 3 review

In this third set of four stories for the Omega Factor range, Big Finish continues the menace from the second set, while allowing the central characters Dr Anne Reynolds (Louise Jameson) and Adam Dean (John Dorney) time to take their own stories forward. The listener is in the position of knowing a lot more about...

Doctor Who: Serpent in the Silver Mask review

Despite reaching its 236th release, the Big Finish Doctor Who main range is as vibrant as ever. In this latest release, David Llewellyn’s Serpent in the Silver Mask, elements of comedy are effortlessly blended with the sinister and a detective mystery, one which the fifth Doctor (Peter Davison) and companions must solve, and quickly, before...

Torchwood: The Office Of Never Was review

From the roster of the Torchwood central cast, doubtless many would agree that Ianto Jones had the most to gain from the show’s audio revival.

Vienna: Retribution – Doctor Who spin-off review

In her fifth Big Finish boxset since first appearing in Doctor Who spin-off Vienna: The Memory Box in 2013 (and with the seventh Doctor before that), Chase Masterson’s impossibly glamorous bounty hunter, ex-assassins, investigator Vienna Salvatori is back for Vienna: Retribution. This time the three-story boxset is penned by a single writer, the prolific Guy Adams,...

Doctor Who: Ghost Walk review

February’s Fifth Doctor release from Big Finish, the second in the current trilogy after Kingdom of Lies, brings his Season 18 line-up of Adric, Tegan and Nyssa into a complex temporal puzzle of a story which has some very modern sensibilities. In a lengthy and highly amusing pre-credits setup, we are introduced to one of...
